Vitamin Drip

Forget the Mojitos and Cosmopolitans the cocktail were talking about isn’t sipped from a tall glass, instead it’s infused straight into the blood stream through a tiny incision in the arm. The beauty of this cocktail means that it doesn’t leave you feeling (or looking) terrible but rather the opposite.

Feeling tired, lethargic and with a mouth full of ulcers I decided my body needed more than just a good nights sleep, it needed some serious TLC. I opted to have the Immune Boost Vitamin Drip, a small cannula was inserted into my arm and was attached to bag of saline containing my personally prescribed cocktail of vitamins – which had been prepared by a fully qualified nurse prescriber. Over a period of about 40mins I did nothing but lay in a dark relaxation room whilst the solution was infused directly into my blood stream. A common thought is “why not just take oral vitamins” ? The truth is that when taken orally only around 15% of the vitamins are of any use to the body – infusions mean a much higher percentage of the vitamin is actually put to good use.

After leaving the clinic I did not feel any immediate changes within my body, however the next morning I realised that I’d had the best nights sleep in a long time. I had more energy and the mouth ulcers I’d been battling with for weeks were on there way out – probably down to the dose of vitamin C. On consultation I explained that I’m prone to cold and flu and not that great at eating my fruit and veg, with this in mind I was recommended a course of drips to boost my immune system. Regardless of the vitamins used I think the hydration alone has given my body a boost, I know how I important water is yet it can get to 5 o’clock and I’ve only had a glass.

Vitamin Drips are used for many different reasons from specific concerns to general health, it’s important to remember that although this may seem like a quick and easy treatment it dose still pose a health risk. There is nothing wrong with asking clinics about the qualifications of their staff or hygiene policies, like many aesthetic treatments a vitamin drip can be done in a clean and safe environment and get fantastic results.
