Vitamin C, Glutathione and B12 Shots- What’s it all about?

Vitamin C, also known as ascorbic acid, is necessary for the growth, development and repair of all body tissues. It’s involved in many body functions, including the formation of collagen, absorption of iron, the immune system, wound healing, and the maintenance of cartilage, bones, and teeth. Vitamin C is an essential vitamin, meaning it can’t be produced by the body. Nevertheless, it has many links to impressive health benefits.

My Botique’s Vitamin C infusion contains a high dose of Vitamin C, coupled with antioxidants and electrolytes, to help restore hydration, boost the immune system and rejuvenate the appearance of hair, skin, and nails.

Glutathione is the body’s most powerful antioxidant and detoxifying agent which protects DNA from damage. As well as fighting free radicals, it reduces inflammation. It is known as ‘The Mother of Antioxidants’ as it promotes cellular repair. The health benefits of Glutathione include building and repairing of bodily tissues and the maintenance of your immune system.

Glutathione, helps the body absorb Vitamin C more effectively, it also helps maintain Vitamin C levels and lower the required intake by recycling it. The recycling occurs after the C vitamin has neutralised a free radical by giving up an electron to the free radical. Glutathione in turn gives up an electron to the C molecule, returning it to work as an antioxidant. While glutathione recycles Vitamin C, in its turn Vitamin C is able to improve glutathione levels and stimulate its activity.

The combination of the two stimulates collagen production, resulting in glowing skin with a firmer appearance and lighter pigmentation. This infusion has anti-ageing benefits, prevents and reverses the effects of free radicals which damage cells and detoxifies vital organs.

Vitamin B12 is a nutrient that helps keep the body’s nerve and blood cells healthy and helps make DNA, the genetic material in all cells.

Vitamin B12 injections deliver this replenishing vitamin to the body, helping improve brain and nervous system. Health benefits include boosting energy and the immune system and maintaining good health and wellness.

Whether you’re looking for a quick immune system boost or for relief from chronic diseases, Intravenous (IV) infusions and Intramuscular (IM) injections are fantastic options. Through these routes, there’s no waiting for medications, fluids and nutrients to filter through your digestive system. IV and IM treatments go directly where they’re needed — into the blood or cells — where your body can deliver them quickly where they need to go.

In individuals suffering from both chronic conditions and depressed immune systems, the functionality of the gastrointestinal system is often impaired. This creates an unfortunate cycle where the body needs nutrients to repair itself but has trouble absorbing them via oral medications. IV therapy of IM injections is the solution — it bypasses the GI system entirely, so you know exactly what your body is getting because there’s no loss due to malabsorption.
