Zinc IV Therapy

These statements have not been evaluated by the FDA. Vitamin supplementation is for wellness only, and not intended to cure or treat disease.

Zinc is an essential trace element that the body uses for a huge variety of functions – in fact, a zinc deficiency impacts so many areas of our body that it can look like just about anything!

If you’re feeling tired and run down, suffering from low immunity or poor concentration, or having issues with wound healing or hormones, you might need a boost of zinc.

Prana IV Therapy offers zinc IV therapy to give your body the zinc it needs to improve immunity, energy, hormones and more.

What is Zinc?

Zinc is actually a metal found in trace amounts throughout the cells and tissues of your body. You use it within your immune system, metabolism and healing functions, and hormonal system.

Your body doesn’t actually store zinc to be used later, so it is considered an essential element. This means that you need to take in zinc daily in order for your body to have the zinc it needs.

What can zinc IV therapy do for me?

Potential Cold Remedy

Studies have shown that zinc is an effective cold remedy. One study showed that patients who took zinc within 24 hours of their first cold symptoms had both shorter duration and lessened severity of their cold. Supplementing regularly with zinc also helps build up the immune system to ward off colds before they start.

Immune Booster

Zinc acts as a powerful antioxidant and anti-inflammatory. It is essential for healthy cell division. Studies also show that infections and illnesses were lower in a group of patients who supplemented with zinc.

Hormones

Zinc is essential for the production of testosterone, making it especially important for men as they age and their testosterone naturally starts to decrease. Zinc is also used by women to make estrogen and progesterone, and even plays a role in ovulation and fertility. Insulin is another hormone that zinc regulates, making zinc important for diabetes control.

Energy Levels and Digestion

Zinc is used to break down carbohydrates into energy that the body can use. Low zinc often contributes to both chronic fatigue and adrenal fatigue.

What are signs of low zinc?

Some signs of low zinc include:

  • Weight gain
  • Weight loss
  • Hair loss
  • Fatigue
  • Digestive issues
  • Infertility
  • Low libido
  • PMS
  • Low immunity
  • Wounds and infections taking a long time to heal
  • Brain fog
  • Poor concentration
  • Cravings

Why is zinc IV therapy better than oral zinc supplements?

Zinc is absorbed from food via the digestive system, and it also plays an important role in digestive function. People with impaired digestion, like leaky gut or celiac, can develop low zinc even if their diet is adequate. Low zinc can create a double whammy, as your body needs zinc to digest food to get the zinc it needs!

Zinc IV therapy bypasses the digestive system, and delivers zinc right into the blood. This provides an immediate boost to zinc levels, regardless of impaired digestion.
