How IV Nutrition Can Help Boost Your Immunity This Cold and Flu Season
Do you have a game plan for combating colds and the flu this season? IV nutrition could be just what you need for that immunity boost.

Cold and flu season is almost here. Having a strong immune system is your best weapon to fight against these viral illnesses. 

At Atlas Health Institute, our team offers IV nutrition in order to boost your immune system to effectively combat colds and the flu this fall and winter.

What happens to your immune system when you’re sick

When you catch a cold or the flu, your immune system jumps into action. Your white blood cells work to fight off the infection and your body will produce antibodies to help fight off the infection should it come back again. Having a sore throat, stuffy nose, and fever are signs that your body is combating against your illness.

There are four main flu strains and over 200 types of colds. Even if you manage to avoid the flu, it’s typical for most people to catch 2-3 colds a year. The strength of your immune system is going to determine how long and how often you’re sick.

Nutraceuticals for wellness

Since your immune system needs so much energy and strength to fight off colds and the flu, you’ll need to guarantee that your immune system has those things. You can boost your immune system by getting plenty of rest, eating a healthy diet, and exercising regularly. However, sometimes those aren’t quite enough to get your immune system to optimal functionality.

This is where nutraceuticals come in. They are pharmaceutical-grade nutritional supplements. They’re made up of a variety of vitamins and minerals that your body needs in order to reach its fullest functioning potential. Nutraceuticals are also very effective at fighting off and treating diseases.

Nutraceuticals and IV nutrition go hand in hand. While nutraceuticals are beneficial, IV nutrition is going to boost the productivity of them, making sure they’re effects are supported and maximized.

So what exactly is IV nutrition?

IV nutrition, or IV therapy, is a treatment method that’s able to give you the vitamins and minerals you need intravenously. It’s a quick and effective way to restore cellular function and can help you recover from numerous illnesses.

Why you should choose IV therapy for boosted immunity

Nutrients given during IV therapy are highly concentrated and are 90% absorbed by your body. However, nutritional supplements are only 50% absorbed by your body since so many of the needed vitamins and minerals are broken down by your stomach and digestional tract. 

So, IV therapy should be your go-to option for kicking viruses as quickly as possible so you can get back to your normal routine.
