24 Apr Is it really worth injecting Vitamins?
Why inject vitamins?
Vitamins and antioxidants are essential for the body to protect itself and are also involved in many metabolic functions. Our bodies can build many antioxidants and vitamins itself from the elements of our food, however we do need to eat certain ones, as we don’t have the ability to make them. For example – Vitamin C.
Our bodies were designed approx. 100,000 years ago and have changed little in that time. However, the world we live in has changed. We are surrounded by man-made chemicals, pollution and are more likely to be stressed. All of these things increase the body’s need for extra antioxidants and vitamins, to neutralise the free radical toxins that build up as a consequence to this. Unfortunately, however, our food is getting increasingly more man made and processed with more chemicals in the way of pesticides and preservatives used than ever before. To add to this, we eat far less raw food than ever before and cooking massively depletes these essential nutrients from our food.
Given these issues many of us are looking to supplement with vitamins and antioxidants to help protect our bodies from free radical toxin accumulation that can lead to quicker ageing and disease processes. Intravenous supplementation offers a very effective and fast way of nourishing the body with these essential nutrients.
Why would you go to professional companies like REVIV for vitamin injections?
Using a professional company, like REVIV, for intravenous or intramuscular vitamin/antioxidant therapies is the only safe way to undergo such therapy.
Medical safety is paramount in this kind of therapy.
REVIV are the global leaders in IV therapy and they take medical safety extremely seriously. Vigorous medical screening is required before the therapy is prescribed by a certified doctor to ensure that the person is safe to proceed with IV therapy. An initial assessment is performed by a certified medical professional that includes a full examination and a determination of the vital signs. This adds to the evidence that it is safe to proceed.
The therapies themselves have been vigorously tested and undergo an annual research and development cycle to ensure they are dosed correctly to the latest medical evidence. The therapies also undergo laboratory testing. REVIV are the only company to do this. The lab testing analyses the prepared infusion for sterility, pH, endotoxin formation, particulate formation and osmolality. All of these must be safe to ensure the safety of the therapy. Many therapies via other companies/individuals are not tested in this way and therefore safety assurance cannot be completely given.
To add to this REVIV also offer the most comprehensive lifestyle genetic analysis commercially available. At 99.97% accurate and based on thousands of studies the analysis looks at an individual’s micronutrient requirement, based on over 70 different genes that are known to be involved in micronutrient metabolism and absorption. Therefore, we can figure out what nutrients will be beneficial for an individual and whether IV therapy can help improve health outcomes from this analysis.
To date REVIV have completed over 750,000 therapies worldwide. There has been no severe or life-threatening adverse event. There has been no case of anaphylaxis to date also. This is an exemplary safety record and is evidence that this type of therapy can be done in a safe way.
REVIV are constantly engaging with regulatory bodies across the globe to try and improve medical safety and regulation of IV therapy.
