<<IV drip ingredients list << Zinc
Zinc is an essential mineral with outstanding health benefits including immune support.
Zinc is an essential mineral that supports your health in a number of ways. Our bodies can’t produce or store zinc, so it’s important to get enough through your daily diet or supplementation.
Studies show zinc prevents the virus that causes common colds from replicating. This means cold suffers are sick for fewer days, with less severe symptoms.6
Zinc is required for many critical life functions including:
Zinc is even necessary for our senses of smell and taste to work. Zinc is found naturally in many types of food, but certain health conditions or habits (like heavy drinking) can cause too much zinc to be lost, rather than absorbed.
IV therapy is the perfect medium for boosting zinc levels because it bypasses the digestive tract and sends zinc and other nutrients directly to your bloodstream where it can be absorbed quickly and fully by your cells.
Not getting enough zinc can weaken the immune system, leaving you more vulnerable to infections from viruses, bacteria and other pathogens.
Zinc fights oxidative stress, stimulates specific immune cells, and can even reduce how long you’re sick.1
Zinc is necessary for a healthy inflammatory response, wound healing, and collagen synthesis. Zinc is recognized by doctors as an effective treatment for healing skin ulcers, burns and other wounds.2
Zinc plays a critical role in maintaining the skin’s barrier, and low zinc levels are associated with a greater incidence of atopic dermatitis (eczema).3
Zinc is an antioxidant, meaning it decreases oxidative stress, and has been shown to diminish inflammatory protein markers.4
Oxidative stress and inflammation have been associated with a wide range of chronic diseases and conditions including heart problems, cancer and cognitive function.5 Preventing chronic inflammation and its associated diseases is immensely important in terms of improving and protecting your overall health.
Zinc has also been extensively studied in connection to a wide array health benefits including:
