IV Drips and Vitamin Therapy; A complete guide for Torrance & Palos Verdes Locals
There are two main types of vitamins: fat-soluble and water-soluble. Fat-soluble vitamins include Vitamins A, D, E, and K. They are absorbed by the intestinal tract and stored in the fat. Fat-soluble vitamins stay in the system longer and are possible to overdose on if too much is taken; however, if you have low body fat or cannot absorb fat well, you may be deficient in these vitamins and in need of vitamin treatment!
Water-soluble vitamins include vitamins B, B2, B3, B5, B6, B7, B9, B12, and C. They pass through the body and only get used if needed. This means that you cannot overdose on them and need more of them on an ongoing basis. Receiving vitamins is good for your body, no doubt about that!
All vitamins can be found in certain foods.
Vitamins are organic compounds that are required to sustain life. Without these 13 vitamins in your diet, you can have varying symptoms. These vitamins and a few foods they can be found in include:
Vitamin A: liver, spinach, eggs, milk, broccoli, carrots, sweet potatoes
Vitamin B: pork, brown rice, asparagus, liver, eggs, oranges
Vitamin B2: asparagus, bananas, milk, eggs, meat, fish, green beans
Vitamin B3: liver, broccoli, carrots, nuts, leafy vegetables, eggs, avocados
Vitamin B5: meats, broccoli, avocados, un-milled whole grains
Vitamin B6: meats, bananas, vegetables, nuts, whole grains
Vitamin B7: egg yolk, liver
Vitamin B9: leafy vegetables, legumes, liver, sunflower seeds
Vitamin B12: fish, shellfish, meat, eggs, milk, dairy, poultry
Vitamin C: liver, fruit, vegetables
Vitamin D: fatty fish, fortified milk and cereal
Vitamin E: whole grains, avocados, nuts
By changing your diet and eating food that contains these vitamins, you can usually get enough of them;
However, some people may find it difficult to eat enough fruit and vegetables to get the required vitamins their bodies need. In this case, it is important to take a daily multivitamin to get all the required nutrients your body may need.
Multivitamins are also important for individuals that may not receive nutrients for a variety of other reasons including those that have a limited diet due to food intolerance or allergies, a disease or condition that prevents digestion or absorption of nutrient properly, follow a strict vegetarian diet, or that have certain lifestyle habits, such as excessive drinking or smoking.
In some cases, such as pregnancy, it is important to get more of certain nutrients, such as calcium, folic acid, and iron. Depending on your health conditions, it is important to discuss your diet and vitamin intake with a board-certified doctor, like Dr. Matt Tahsini.
For individuals that need extra vitamin intake, getting high doses of vitamin therapy could be the answer!
Whether it is to boost your immune system or to overcome the lack of minerals like magnesium calcium in your body, getting vitamins and minerals in the most effective way is of high importance, since many vitamin supplements can merely lead to expensive urine!
Vitamin therapy uses an IV drip to deliver key nutrients, amino acids, antioxidants, hydration, and electrolytes to your body’s cells to improve your mood, health, and wellness.
IV Vitamin therapy or IV Vitamin Drips are more effective than oral supplements because oral drugs are not fully absorbed due to the GI tract. With a Skin Works Vitamin Drip, and Vitamin infusions like Myers’ cocktail vitamins and nutrients are delivered immediately to your blood and are absorbed fully.
You will notice an immediate improvement in overall mental and physical function. Skin Works Medical Spa is the proud leading provider of Vitamin drips in Torrance, Redondo Beach, and South Bay Los Angeles.
There are many benefits of vitamin therapy.
It can help to boost your immunity, regain mental focus and energy, boost metabolism, rebuild muscles, provide hydration, reduce healing time, reverse effects of aging, increase energy, and help you destress and relax.
You can receive either a vitamin shot or vitamin drip to infuse your body with needed nutrients so your body can perform its best. Individuals in a hurry prefer the shots; however, if you are energy or nutrient-depleted, we recommend a vitamin drip.
The length of time vitamin therapy will take depends on which method you choose.
An IV infusion can take anywhere from 20 minutes to 1 hour, depending on the IV you choose. IV treatments are ideal when you are sick, tired, or hungover, as they provide 10 times as many vitamins as a shot. At Skin Works Medical Spa in Torrance, we have a variety of vitamin and IV fluids sizes to pick from.
After one of our highly skilled medical professionals inserts your IV, you will have a thin plastic catheter in your vein to deliver the nutrients. A shot takes about a minute as the needle injects vitamins into the muscle to deliver nutrients to the muscle fibers. A push uses your IV to deliver vitamins over 10 minutes.
