What is in the Immunity IV drip?
Vitamin C is ascorbic acid, a water-soluble vitamin that is a potent antioxidant. Vitamin C stimulates the production and function of white blood cells. White blood cells fight off illness-causing viruses and bacteria like COVID-19, influenza, staphylococcus aureus, and many more.
Vitamin C also helps your body to produce collagen, a key protein in the skin, which is your body's first line of defense against dangerous microorganisms.
Adrenal glands use a significant amount of vitamin C to protect us each time a stress response gets triggered. During times of stress, we are more likely to succumb to illness.
We live in a hyper-cleanliness era that can prevent the strengthening of our immune systems. The overuse of antibiotics has had a devastating impact on our gut health and immune system. Conversely, there are many external factors that impact our immunity such as stress, working the third shift, exposure to transmissible illness, etc.
A strong and healthy immune system is the key to fending off the bacteria and viruses that make us sick. We compromise our immunity, however, with everyday stress, fatigue, travel, environmental toxins, medications, poor diet, a sedentary lifestyle, and more. A double dose of Vitamin C contributes to immune defense by encouraging the production of white blood cells and stimulating white blood cells to fight off bacterial and viral intruders. In addition, Vitamin C boosts antioxidant levels to fight harmful molecules called free radicals and helps to strengthen the body's skin barrier. Zinc also enhances immune function and fights inflammation along with Vitamin C.
