Micronutrient infusions

Micronutrient infusions & their effect

In the pursuit of a healthy lifestyle, there is a growing focus on newer methods to preserve or improve our health. One trend that has become more popular in recent years are micronutrient infusions – a form of therapy in which essential micronutrients are introduced directly into the blood flow in a concentrated form.

What are the advantages of micronutrient infusions?

Efficient absorption, ideal dosage, enhanced function

The advantage of infusions over oral supplements, which often become less effective during the digestive process, is that the active ingredients are absorbed quickly and efficiently. Because the nutrients enter the bloodstream directly, they are fully utilised by the body’s cells. In the case of illness, we now know that ``normal`` levels of these nutrients in the blood are not enough, because the body needs higher doses of certain micronutrients to combat the pathogenic processes causing the illness. The generally accepted recommended dosage, on the other hand, is only sufficient to prevent deficiencies.

Support for detox processes

During a lifetime, the body stores varying amounts of toxins depending on the individual's lifestyle. These harmful substances mainly accumulate in the fatty tissue. The task of the liver is to continuously detoxify the entire organism. To do this, it must be supplied with the necessary nutrients, in particular B-group vitamins, vitamin A, vitamin E, amino acids, choline and glutathione. Many of these substances can be administered intravenously to support the liver as much as possible.

Increased antioxidative capacity

One of the side effects of our stressful everyday life is a higher susceptibility to inflammations that promote oxidation of the cells, causing them to age faster. This can result in disruptions to bodily processes and functions. As even a healthy diet is not always enough to compensate for such oxidation processes (despite eating a diet that naturally contains many antioxidant-rich foods), administering appropriate micronutrients intravenously is an excellent way to boost the body’s antioxidative capacity.

Strengthening the immune system

A weak immune system is often a secondary consequence of so-called hidden hunger, or in other words, a micronutrient deficiency. It is possible to regulate and optimise the function of the immune system by administering certain micronutrients. The immune system not only has the task of protecting against pathogens, it also inhibits inflammation, tackles allergens and promotes apoptosis, i.e. the self-destruction of defective and ageing cells.

Support for neurological functions

The functions of neurotransmitters in our brain and nervous system are supported by certain micronutrients as co-factors, which are not always available in sufficient quantities and in the right functional composition. Again, a randomly determined blood analysis can only provide limited informational value, and many important micronutrients are not even listed in the usual blood analyses. However, a sufficient supply of certain amino acids, vitamins, trace elements etc. is essential for neurological and hormonal processes to function properly.
