Can IV Therapy Help With Anti-Aging

Eating a nutritious diet is essential at any age, but getting the correct nutrients is even more essential in your golden years. Proper nutrient intake helps your body and mind stay healthy and energized, and the need for particular vitamins and minerals also increases with age. 

And given that 25% of adults under age 65 and half of elderly adults experience malnutrition, being proactive about meeting your nutritional needs is essential.

Dr. Javier Sosa and our expert team at Woodlands Primary Healthcare, located in The Woodlands, Texas, offer anti-aging intravenous (IV) vitamin therapy to people of all ages who need a therapeutic dose.

Read on to learn more about aging and nutrition, including how IV therapy can help.

Nutrition and aging

Good nutrition protects you from many chronic and acute conditions. Without enough vitamin C, for example, you may not be as equipped to fight off or heal from infections. When your calcium and vitamin D levels drop, you could be more prone to bone loss and fractures. 

Getting sufficient amounts of essential nutrients can also help keep your mood in a positive place. That is essential, given that aging increases your risk for depression. B vitamins, too, play a role in your mood and energy levels. And yet, many older adults fall short of their daily requirements.

Signs of a nutrient deficiency include:

How IV therapy can help

IV therapy works by quickly supplying the vitamins and minerals you need directly into your bloodstream. 

If you don’t eat a diverse diet, you may be a prime candidate. And if you start IV therapy before deficiency sets in, you may be able to prevent its harmful effects.

Benefits of IV therapy from an anti-aging standpoint include:

IV therapy can also improve your hydration. Dehydration can be dangerous, and it happens more quickly in your senior years.

As an added perk, you won’t have to swallow large pills daily or wait for the nutrients to go through your digestive system before experiencing improvements.
