Heading into Australia's flu season during a global pandemic, bolstering your immune system has never looked so attractive.
Renaissance Clinics Applecross is excited to introduce intravenous vitamin infusions containing Vitamin C with an added option of Glutathione and/or B Complex, to help boost your immunity this winter.
WHAT IS IV VITAMIN C, GLUTATHIONE & B COMPLEX?
An essential nutrient with several roles in the body and a powerful antioxidant that protects cells against oxidative stress caused by infection. It can prevent or reverse cellular damage caused by free radicals and improve immune health in several ways, including decreasing inflammation and boosting the activity of the cells that clean up bacteria.
Glutathione is a tripeptide composed of three amino acids: cysteine, glycine, and glutamate. Often called the “master” antioxidant, glutathione boosts the utilization and recycling of other antioxidants, namely vitamins C and E, as well as alpha lipoic acid and CoQ10. Glutathione can bolster aging defense, antioxidant protection, detoxification and energy production.
This vitamin family plays an important role in keeping our bodies functioning efficiently. These essential nutrients help convert our food into fuel, allowing us to stay energized throughout the day. While many of the following vitamins work in tandem, each has its own specific benefits — from promoting healthy skin and hair to preventing memory loss or migraines.
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS?
While there is currently not enough robust scientific evidence for regulatory bodies to support the use of IV Vitamins for all of the following, there are still many, many medical practitioners around the world who treat, prevent and help patients recover from these conditions by doing so.
Improve immune health
Boost energy levels
Improve mental clarity and cognitive function
Reduce the symptoms of migraines
Improve symptoms of asthma
Accelerate wound healing
Maintain the strength of muscles and tissues
