8 Injectable Vitamins and Minerals that Boost Immune System and Help Ward Off a Cold

October marks the start of the flu season, which peaks in January and February and goes through May. Now cold and flu season is in full swing.

Everyone is familiar with the unpleasant symptoms of a cold or flu. No one enjoys the achy body, fever, chills, and congestion that accompany these illnesses. When a person gets sick, he or she suffers from a decrease in productivity.

If you’ve had the flu shot, you’ve already taken a positive step toward protecting yourself against certain strains of influenza. However, there are other viruses – as well as the common cold – that can hit without warning and cannot be prevented with a yearly vaccination.

Of course, it’s always a good idea to wash your hands several times a day to keep germs at bay. If you follow hand-washing with a dollop of hand sanitizer, you’ll add even more protection against those pesky germs that make us sick. Nevertheless, because we do not live in a sterile world, there’s a good chance you’ll come in contact with contagious viruses, regardless of the precautions you take.

Our immune system is designed to resolve most illnesses with little to no intervention, as extra rest and fluids are typically the only treatment needed. However, immune-compromising factors often prevail during the colder months: high-stress levels, irregular sleep patterns, nutrient-deficient diets, inadequate physical activity and detoxification, and frequent exposure to pathogens (infection-causing agents).

This “perfect storm” results in an overwhelmed immune system, unremitting cold and flu symptoms, and susceptibility towards chronic illness or more complicated conditions, such as bronchitis or pneumonia.

The good news is that you can boost your immune system naturally. ​​

One such therapy is intravenous (IV) administration of immune-stimulating vitamins, minerals, and anti-oxidants, a particularly powerful and effective intervention for both acute and chronic illness. IV therapy works by introducing nutrient-rich solutions directly into the bloodstream, creating higher blood levels than is possible through oral intake. As a result, a significant concentration gradient is formed outside the cells, allowing for the easier passage of nutrients through the membrane, into the cell, where they help optimize cellular function. When the body is under stress, as it is while battling an illness, requirements for specific nutrients increase as the cell’s ability to maintain adequate levels decrease. The high concentration gradient achieved with IV therapy addresses this issue.

Speed is the essence of most treatments and getting what you need into your body as fast as possible is essential not just for recovery, but for a rapid recovery. This is the beauty and power of IV treatments.

Immune Stimulating IV Therapy is packed with immune boosting vitamins and minerals like B vitamins, vitamin C, magnesium, selenium, calcium, and zinc. ​​

Vitamin C cannot be made in the human body and has to be ingested in food or taken via supplementation. It is a powerful antioxidant and is required in the production of several critical enzymes as well as the synthesis of collagen from proline and lysine. That means this humble vitamin is required for the maintenance of normal connective tissue (ligaments, tendons, skin), wound healing, and bone remodeling.

Vitamin C is also required for conversion of tyrosine to epinephrine (adrenaline). That’s why it is present in high amounts in the adrenal gland cortex and these levels are depleted after adrenocorticotropic hormone (ACTH) stimulation of the gland and synthesis of the stress hormone cortisol. That means under times of high stress (whether from illness, psychological stress, or some other form) vitamin C levels are liable to plummet.

Vitamin C – is a very important component of IV therapy for immune support. Studies have shown that when our bodies have encountered a cold, the vitamin C levels in our body decrease significantly, making it essential to restore our body’s Vitamin C levels. The fastest way to do this is through administered IV treatments which in turn, results in a quicker recovery.


There are eight different B vitamins that form the B vitamin complex. Combined, they not only combat lethargy but also increase white blood cell counts. B vitamins aid the immune system with higher numbers of white blood cells. These cells protect the body by destroying bacteria and other germs that, if left unchecked, would lead to sickness.

The vitamins in the Vitamin B-Complex are essential for growth, development, and a variety of other bodily functions. They play a major role in the activities of enzymes, proteins that regulate chemical reactions in the body, which are important in turning food into energy and other needed substances.

Due to their critical role deficiencies in B vitamins can lead to a VERY wide variety of symptoms including fatigue, anxiety, weight loss, emotional disturbances, muscle weakness, dementia, insomnia, skin eruptions, dermatitis, numbness, paresthesia, anemia, peripheral neuropathy, memory loss, demyelination, multiple sclerosis, paralysis, “brain fog” and cognitive impairment, sore throat, mental confusion, and diarrhea among others. ​​
