As we continue navigating the cold and flu season along with COVID we want to take a moment to give some tips on helping keep your wellness in check. Here are three things our Nurse Practitioner, Valerie, suggest to strengthen and support your immune system:
Step 1 – Immunity IV is a foundational step to boost immunity. IV vitamin infusions go directly into the vein to deliver 100% of the nutrient into your bloodstream for your body to access right away.
The Immunity IV formula contains Vitamin C, Methyl B12, B Complex, Zinc and Magnesium chloride.
Vitamin C isn’t produced by the body and is obtained through diet and supplementation. It works as an antioxidant and supports the immune system by stimulating white blood cell activity. It’s also an important nutrient that helps to form collagen and muscle and essential to the body’s healing process.
Methyl B 12 is the active bio available form of B12. It is a very important vitamin that is obtained through diet or supplementation. It helps to increase energy, improve mood, memory and heart health in addition to supporting bones, skin, hair and nails. Methyl B12 plays a vital role in the prevention of illness through supporting the proper functioning of healthy cells and red blood cell production.
B Complex (B1/Thiamine, B2/Riboflavin, B3/Niacin, B5/Pantothenic acid, B6/Pyridoxine) has been found to help reduce fatigue and improve mood. These B vitamins have a direct impact on your energy levels, brain function, and cell metabolism. They help to prevent infection through supporting cell health and the growth of red blood cells.
Zinc is an essential mineral that has to be obtained through diet or supplementation. Zinc plays many important roles including the development and function of immune cells. It also plays an important role in cell growth and division, wound healing, DNA synthesis and protein production.
Magnesium Chloride is a mineral, responsible for over 300 chemical reactions in the body. It supports muscle and nerve function, increases energy production, regulates hormones, reduces inflammation and helps the body provide a stronger immune response during illness.
Step 2 – OrthoMune by Orthomolecular is a daily oral supplement to maintain immune support. OrthoMune is a targeted blend of nutrients designed to provide a broad-spectrum support to the body’s immune reserves. The formula includes quercetin, a powerful bioflavonoid that aids in supporting the immune system. Vitamin C and N-acetyl cysteine are potent antioxidants that promote respiratory function and support the function of quercetin. Vitamin D and zinc are important micronutrients needed to create a robust immune reserve. This powerful combination works to promote healthy respiratory and immune function.
Step 3 – Viracid by Orthomolecular is to have on hand use if you become infected with a viral illness or test positive for COVID. Viracid includes a powerful combination of key nutrients and botanical extracts that provide support during immune challenges. Viracid boosts immune defenses by providing nutrients such as L-lysine vitamins A and C, pantothenic acid, B12, and zinc. Viracid includes the synergistic blend of botanical extracts black elderberry, astragalus, echinacea, and andrographis, all of which have been used traditionally for their clinically effective immune-modulating properties.
