Your gut health affects not only your digestive comfort, but also your mental health, risk of chronic conditions, and immune function. Unfortunately, an estimated two-thirds of adults experience current digestive symptoms, indicating a compromised gut microbiome.
Thankfully, we have a natural, effective way to improve your gut health and overall wellness: IV therapy. This proven treatment supports the gut microbiome by delivering nutrients directly to the bloodstream. Read on to learn more!
Understanding Your Gut Microbiome
To understand how IV therapy supports gut health, it’s important to understand the gut microbiome. This is the collection of bacteria and fungi that live in the digestive system.
With a proper balance of “good” bacteria, the gut microbiome effectively supports digestion, promotes immune function, and encourages a stable mood. The good bacteria also keep “bad” bacteria from taking over the digestive system, which can cause bloating, constipation, skin rashes, and frequent infections.
IV Therapy for Gut Health
During IV therapy, a blend of vitamins, minerals, and other nutrients is delivered directly to the bloodstream through an IV drip. This process bypasses the digestive system, unlike oral supplements, which allows for improved absorption and faster results.
Some of the nutrients used in IV therapy for gut health include:
- Calcium supports a healthy gut microbiome and promotes proper digestive enzyme function.
- Zinc reduces inflammation, prevents intestinal damage, and supports the function of various enzymes.
- Glutamine is an amino acid that promotes a healthy gut microbiome and regulates inflammatory responses.
- Magnesium helps regulate digestive enzymes and promotes regular bowel movements.
IV therapy can improve and support your gut health for a rapid improvement in digestive symptoms. Schedule an appointment at Mind Body Spirit Care to learn more about our IV therapy sessions and how they may benefit your wellness routine!
