Zinc IV Therapy
Zinc is an essential trace element that the body uses for a huge variety of functions. In fact, a zinc deficiency impacts so many areas of our body that it can look like just about anything!
If you’re feeling tired and run down, suffering from low immunity or poor concentration, or having issues with wound healing or hormones, you might need a boost of zinc.
What is Zinc?
Zinc is a metal found in trace amounts throughout the cells and tissues of your body. You use it within your immune system, metabolism, healing functions, and hormonal system.
Your body doesn’t store zinc to be used later, so it is considered an essential element. This means that you need to take in zinc daily for your body to have the zinc it needs.

Potential Cold Remedy
Studies have shown that zinc is effective in preventing or aiding a cold or flu. One study showed that patients who took zinc within 24 hours of their first cold or flu symptom, had both shorter duration and lessened severity of their cold or flu.
Zinc acts as a powerful antioxidant and anti-inflammatory. It is essential for healthy cell division. Studies also show that infections and illnesses were lower in a group of people who got iv with zinc.
Energy Levels and Digestion
Zinc is used to break down carbohydrates into energy that the body can use. Low zinc often contributes to both chronic fatigue and adrenal fatigue.
What are signs of low zinc?

- Weight gain

- Digestive issues

Why is zinc IV therapy better than oral zinc supplements?
Zinc is absorbed from food via the digestive system, and it also plays an important role in digestive function. People with impaired digestion, like leaky gut or celiac, can develop low zinc even if their diet is adequate. Low zinc can create a double whammy, as your body needs zinc to digest food to get the zinc it needs!
Zinc IV therapy bypasses the digestive system and delivers zinc right into the blood. This provides an immediate boost to zinc levels, regardless of impaired digestion.
