Immunity

FIGHTING OFF COLDS + VIRUSES?

Boost your immune system + feel better faster

Your immune system is a complicated network of white blood cells, antibodies, complex proteins, networks, and organs that are interdependent. Certain components of the system operate as literal barriers, preventing viruses and bacteria from reaching vital organs such as the brain, while others actively seek out and eliminate invaders.

It’s important to know that a strong immune system will not prevent you from contracting novel pathogens, so it remains imperative to continue practicing social distancing, good hand hygiene, and cough etiquette.

However, maintaining a robust immune system while you are healthy can help your body adapt to a new virus if you become ill. Taking actions to strengthen your immune system now will also help you fight off other common viruses such as the cold or flu.

What’s In It?

The Immunity Drip includes Ascorbic Acid (Vitamin C), Thiamine (B1), Niacin (B3), Riboflavin (B2), Pantothenic Acid (B5), Pyridoxine (B6), and Zinc Chloride.

What Does It Do?

Vitamin C and Zinc, for example, assist in enhancing the skin barrier function; the B vitamins, vitamin C, vitamin D, and Zinc work in synergy to support the protective activities of the immune cells. All of these micronutrients– with the exception of C– are essential for antibody production. Overall, inadequate intake and status of these vitamins and minerals may lead to suppressed immunity, which predisposes to infections and aggravates malnutrition. Supplementation with these selected micronutrients can support the body’s defense system by enhancing all three levels of immunity.

How Does It Work?

The infusion works by boosting the blood concentration of numerous critical vitamins and minerals over what can be achieved by taking them orally—a notion known as bioavailability.

When nutrients are administered intravenously, the levels of vitamins in the bloodstream are momentarily boosted, directing the nutrients to the mitochondria, where they are active. This momentary increase regularly “kick-starts” the cells, allowing them to create energy more effectively.

Recommended Banger to Add to Your Immunity Drip

You know your body and specific goals best, so you may customize any of the Drips with additional vitamins and minerals–aka Bangers. Agua Vivir offers 12 Bangers. It is recommended to add no more than two to three Bangers to a Drip.

For this month’s feature drip of the month, Immunity, we recommend adding Glutathione.

Glutathione is a powerful, plant-based antioxidant known to support a resilient and adaptive immune system and to help prevent damage caused by free radicals and heavy metals. Our bodies’ quintessential antioxidant defense is the glutathione system, which includes glutathione itself, along with enzymes and other proteins that enable glutathione to do its work.

Glutathione is actually a very simple molecule– our body makes it from three amino acids– cysteine, glycine, and glutamine. Levels of glutathione have been shown to diminish with age as well as with chronic illness and poor health. Functions of glutathione include: protecting cells from free radical damage; improving cellular function; aiding in the recovery process; and acting as a universal toxin-binder.

Recommended Boosters For Your Immune System

Boosters– or intramuscular (IM) shots– are an a la carte item or can be added to a Drip treatment. If ordered alongside an IV infusion, Boosters will be prepared and dispensed at the end of an IV Infusion. As we approach cold and flu season, we recommend adding a megadose of Vitamin D3.

Vitamin D is one of the most important prohormones inside the body.

However, reports have shown that over 40% of Americans and over 1 billion people worldwide are deficient.

Vitamin D is responsible for the production of sex hormones, bone health, immune system function, and regulation of certain minerals, like calcium. The Vitamin D3 Booster is a potent, fast-acting and effective treatment for individuals who are deficient in vitamin D.
