Vitamin/Mineral Repletion IV Infusion
4mL Magnesium / 1mL Trace Minerals / 2mL B-Complex / 4mL Dexpanthenol (B5) / 5mL Calcium Gluconate + 500mL salin bag
The Vitamin/Mineral Repletion IV infusion restores nutrients depleted from heavy/prolonged physical activity. Receiving this infusion can help treat macronutrient deficiencies, which can lead to micronutrient deficiencies. It is an easy alternative to oral supplementation and provides general hydration. The ingredients are as follows:
Magnesium - Supplemented in patients who arere depleted of minerals; acts as a muscle relaxant and can provide pain relief; has a calming effect which can help promote relaxation and sleep. Magnesium helps maintain normal muscle tissue, regulates heart rhythms, supports immune function, and keeps nerves functioning properly. It also helps regulate energy metaboism, maintain blood sugar, and regluate calcium levels.
Trace Minerals - Replenishes depleted minerals such as Zinc, Copper, Manganese, Chromium, and Selenium. The body requires many different minerals in trace amounts. Most of these can be replaced with oral therapies, but when these minerals become severely depleted it is advisable to use IV administration to replenish them rapidly. Certain therpaies call for trace minerals to enhance or address specific deficiency disease. Some elements like iron, zinc, and selenium are important enough to be considered separately.
Vitamin B-Complex - Includes B1 (Thiamine), B2 (Riboflavin), B3 (Niacin), B5 (Dexpanthenol), and B6 (Pyridoxine). Improves mood, energy, metabolic function, and helps alleviate depression. Acts as a potentiator for important actions within the body including fat loss, energy production, and mood balance. Functions include: assisting the body in the handling of stress, increasing energy, optimizing cardiovascular health, increasing brain function, boosting antioxidant protection from free radicals, and maintaining an optimal metabolism.
Vitamin B5 (Dexpanthenol) - Used to nourish paitents who are not able to eat and used as a gastrointestinal (GI) stimulant. B5 is critical in the formation of Coenzyme A, a molecule that helps a large amount of enzymes function in the body and for energy production in general.
Calcium - Principally found in bones and teeth. An important ion in the metabolic processes. Essential mineral supplemented to prevent osteoporosis.
