Vitamin Infusions Q & A

Texas Direct Primary Care

What is vitamin deficiency?

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the majority of Americans are deficient in at least one essential vitamin or mineral. Many suffer from overall vitamin deficiency, which can lead to serious health issues.  

Vitamins and minerals are essential for everything from your bone and heart health to muscle and brain function. Vitamin deficiency can cause these and other complications:

  • Dementia
  • Erectile dysfunction in men
  • Heart disease
  • Cognitive impairment
  • Hypertension

Restoring and maintaining proper vitamin and mineral levels can go a long way toward preventing or improving these serious health issues.

Why choose vitamin infusions to restore proper levels?

There’s a great deal of controversy surrounding why Americans aren’t getting the vitamins and minerals they need. What’s clear is that more men and women eat highly processed food than ever before, and many avoid fruits, vegetables, and high-quality meat that can deliver these micronutrients.

It’s challenging to get all the vitamins and minerals you need through food alone. There are a multitude of supplements available, but research suggests that your body fails to absorb much of the contents of oral supplements.

Vitamin infusions offer a direct path between high-quality vitamins and minerals and your bloodstream, where they can go to work immediately. Nothing is lost to the digestive process, and you don’t have to worry about choosing the right blend of supplements or remembering to take them every day.

What is a Myer’s Cocktail?

A Myer’s Cocktail is a type of nutritional IV therapy named after Dr. John Myer, who developed the treatment. While initially administered via a syringe directly into the patient’s vein, today’s Myer Cocktails are delivered with an IV bag, which incorporates hydration into the treatment.

A Myer’s Cocktail can be customized to suit your specific needs, but common nutrients used in this treatment include:

  • Calcium chloride
  • Magnesium chloride
  • B complex vitamins
  • Vitamin C

This treatment option can help restore your energy levels, reduce brain fog, eliminate headaches, and shorten recovery time after illness or athletic performance.
