Good nutrition is the key to staying healthy. But some of us need an extra boost in the vitamin department when we’re on the go or not feeling well.
One way to make up for vitamin deficiencies is with multivitamins. But these don’t have to come in pill form. In fact, you can get an immediate vitamin boost through multivitamin IVs.
Below, we’ll take a look at what these multivitamin IVs are made of and who can benefit from them.
What are Multivitamins?
In the U.S., a multivitamin is a supplement containing three or more vitamins and minerals that do not include herbs, hormones, or pharmaceutical drugs. There is no standard ingredient list, but the dosage of each ingredient must be below the tolerable upper limit. That way, it does not cause adverse health effects.
Multivitamins (MVs) are used to complement our diets when we don’t get enough nutritional value from our food. Companies that make these substances choose their vitamin combinations based on what they believe a vitamin boost will do for a customer’s health and wellness. For example, an immune-boosting multivitamin is likely to contain Vitamin C.
The Benefits of Multivitamins
The main reason to use an MV is to increase your nutrient intake. Some studies show that doing so can have a variety of beneficial effects on health, including:
While good studies are hard to come by, there is some preliminary evidence that multivitamins can help reduce the risk of cancer by inhibiting carcinogenesis or tumor progression. MVs may also reduce a person’s risk of cardiovascular disease. Still, more research needs to be conducted to show a direct connection.
While the evidence of MVs reducing disease is weak, several studies show multivitamins may have beneficial effects on immune function, mood, and some cognitive functions. There are strong links between vitamin deficiencies and medical conditions, so multivitamins are likely to have a more obvious effect if a person lacks proper nutrition.
Strength and energy enhancements
For those who have vitamin or mineral deficiencies, vitamins such as B-12 can help improve symptoms of fatigue and boost both energy and endurance. MVs can also be helpful for those with iron deficiencies, such as women who experience fatigue due to menstruation.
Eye, skin, and hair
If you suffer from nutrient deficiencies that affect eye health or your skin and hair condition, MVs may help remedy these issues. Vitamins A , C, and E tend to be the main culprits, so you will commonly find those in MVs labeled for beauty uses. These may also include antioxidants such as biotin.
Multivitamins Side Effects
If you are not vitamin deficient or if you take a multivitamin that has more nutrients than you need, there’s a good chance you may simply excrete the excess (in your urine, for example). Loading up on vitamins and minerals does not increase their benefits.
Some multivitamins can also interfere with the efficacy of prescription medications, which is why they are often accompanied by a warning to consult your doctor before taking them.
Depending on the ingredients and how sensitive your body is to new substances, you may also experience an upset stomach, headache, or unusual taste in your mouth after beginning a course of multivitamins. Some of these side effects apply to MVs taken in pill form only.
Signs of an Allergic Reaction to Multivitamins
While it’s uncommon, some people can have severe allergic reactions to multivitamins, especially those with B-12 in them.
Signs of an allergic reaction include a rash, blistered, a fever, wheezing, trouble swallowing, or swelling of the face, throat, mouth, lips, or tongue.
MVs that contain large doses of minerals can cause increased urination, stomach bleeding, accelerated heart rate, confusion, and muscle weakness.
It’s essential to consult a licensed nurse or physician if you feel unwell after taking an MV.
IVs with Multivitamin Formulas
When administered by a medical professional, IVs containing multivitamins are safe. This is especially the case if you have difficulty swallowing or digesting pills. Multivitamin IVs have the benefit of going straight to your bloodstream and bypassing your digestive system.
Reset IV offers many IV multivitamin treatments to help replenish what you need to stay healthy and energized. These include:
If you’re flying through time zones, a lack of sleep and dehydration can cause you to feel fatigued, sore, sick, and even irritable.
Reset IV’s Jet Lag solution includes saline, pain reliever, B Vitamins, including B1, B2, B3, B5, B6, B7, B9, and B12, and electrolytes. It also replenishes any Vitamin C, A, B, B1, B6, D3, E, and K1, as well as Niacinamide and Dexpanthol that your body lacks after a long flight.
In times of stress, our bodies work overtime, spending energy and using up nutrients faster than we can replace them.
Reset IV’s Relaxation IV can help address anxiety with its unique combination of saline, magnesium, and taurine. The multivitamin formula in this IV also includes C, A, B, B1, B6, D3, E, and K1, in addition to Niacinamide and Dexpanthol.
The Baller is a custom formula that you choose in consultation with Reset IV’s medical team to address your specific needs.
All IVs include saline and a modified Myers Cocktail with a boost of Vitamins B and C, Magnesium, and Calcium. After that, it’s up to you to decide if you need to address hangover symptoms such as nausea, head pain, and heartburn or if you want to select the multivitamin cocktail.
Vomiting and diarrhea caused by eating contaminated food will deplete your body of the vitamins and minerals it needs to function at its prime.
Our Food Poisoning IV includes saline and anti-nausea medication in addition to the standard multivitamin cocktail to replenish your lost stores of nutrients – all without upsetting your stomach further.
Much like food poisoning, the stomach flu will deplete your nutritional reserves and make them hard to restore through food and drink.
By using IV therapy, our Stomach Flu solution gets you the saline you need for rehydration, Pepcid for any painful reflux you experience, and the multivitamin cocktail to replenish Vitamins C, A, B, B1, B6, D3, E, K1, Niacinamide and Dexpanthol.
When cold and flu season hits, your body works overtime to help fight off illness and deal with any stubborn invaders.
You can recover faster with Reset IV’s Cold and Flu therapy. It contains not only saline, a pain reliever, and a multivitamin cocktail, but an extra boost of Vitamin C to shore up your immune function.
