HELLO FROM REPLENISH!
If we could shout one thing from the roof tops, we would shout, “come get a Vitamin Drip if you’re starting to feel sick!” Why? Because many, including all of us at Replenish, say it works! It may be anecdotal, but many swear that the High doses of Vitamin C, Zinc and B vitamins in a liter of iV fluids will help nip a Cold in the bud and have you feeling better faster. This is especially true if a Vitamin Drip is received at the first sign of illness.
What else can you do if you want to help prevent getting sick during Cold & Flu season? First, we recommend getting a flu shot and washing your hands often. Then, we recommend getting a Vitamin Drip on a regular basis (weekly to a couple times a month) during this season. If you travel a lot or have been around others who are sick, it is essential to provide your immune system with a boost.
With iV therapy your body absorbs 100% of nutrients compared to much less when taking the same by mouth. iv therapy allows for the administration of higher doses and the realization of maximum benefits for you, your body, and your immune system.
Let us help you be your best you by keeping you happy & healthy during this Cold & Flu season!
Vitamin D was first discovered as a fat soluble vitamin in the early 20th century. It is now recognized as a prohormone, or a substance that the body converts to a hormone. Vitamin D is manufactured by the body in response to the skin’s exposure to the UVB rays in sunlight. Its most important role is allowing the body to absorb calcium.
As a result of this function, Vitamin D is critical for the maintenance of healthy bones and the immune system in general. Not only does it help prevent fractures, it also lowers the risk of some cancers (colon, breast, and prostate), regulates hormones, and can help alleviate some symptoms of depression.
Further, a deficiency in Vitamin D can affect over 300 processes in the body and is highly correlated with many chronic disease states including: diabetes, cardiovascular disease, metabolic disease, infectious diseases, and cancers. Vitamin D deficiency has also been shown to be a risk factor for autoimmune diseases such as Multiple Sclerosis, Rheumatoid Arthritis, Lupus, and Type I Diabetes. As previously stated, a Vitamin D deficiency can also lead to increased risk of a number of neuropsychiatric diseases such as depression, schizophrenia, seasonal affective disorder, and general cognitive impairment.
Most recently, research done by Northwestern University has shown that patients with a severe Vitamin D deficiency are twice as likely to experience major complications from Covid-19.
Vitamin D deficiency is commonly seen in those who are overweight, elderly, or have a dark complexion. However, those that regularly wear sunscreen or spend a lot of time indoors should also be vigilant regarding their Vitamin D levels. Finally, Vitamin D deficiency occurs frequently in those who do not regularly consume fish or dairy.
Because many physicians do not test for a Vitamin D deficiency, it is important to routinely monitor your status and ensure it is in within optimal range.
While oral replacement of Vitamin D is possible, it can take an extended period of time and large doses to return to the optimal range. Injections of Vitamin D have been shown to bring patients into an optimal range quickly and safely.

CORONAVIRUS: CAN INTRAVENOUS (IV) VITAMIN C HELP PREVENT THIS DISEASE?
As you may be aware, Vitamin C plays a major role in helping the body combat bacteria, protozoa, and viruses, such as the Cold and Flu. Further, it is has repeatedly been shown that a deficiency in Vitamin C can increase one’s susceptibility to viruses, as well as increase the severity and duration of the viral illness. Additionally, research has shown that physically active people WHO regularly supplement their Vitamin C (6-8 grams) contract fewer viral illnesses (such as the Common Cold) and recover faster. 
Coronaviruses are a family of RNA viruses, similar to the Cold and Flu. Well-known coronaviruses include SARS and MERS. The most recently discovered coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2/COVID-19) is simply a novel strain of these well known VIRUSES. This virus can cause mild to severe respiratory infections, fever, and has led to thousands of hospitalizations AND DEATHS around the world.
Can iV Vitamin C help?
Currently, physicians IN CHINA AND AROUND THE WORLD are treating many coronavirus patients with iV Vitamin C (24 grams/day). Compared to taking Vitamin C by mouth, the iV route allows for the administration of significantly higher doses with fewer side effects. This higher dose helps provide the immune system with the boost it needs to help fight viral infections.
Studies also suggest that even modest amounts of supplemental Vitamin C intake may help decrease the incidence of serious viral illness. .
A good rule of thumb for shielding yourself from coronavirus is to wash your hands regularly, get plenty of sleep, eat healthy foods (LOW sugar INTAKE), reduce your stress level, and boost your immune system with Vitamin C supplementation.
THE AMAZING BENEFITS OF NAD+
NAD+, and the many benefits of iV therapy, have been in the news quite a bit lately thanks to a high profile pop star. Recently, Justin Bieber mentioned that he uses NAD+ to help ease his anxiety and curb cravings related to substance abuse. While we can attest that NAD+ can help with these symptoms, the beauty of NAD+ is that it can help with so much more!
NAD+ (Nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide) is an essential compound found in every cell of our bodies. It plays a major role in maintaining our health, mentally and physically. Most commonly, NAD+ is depleted by age, anxiety, depression, substance abuse, brain injury, PTSD, or neurodegenerative diseases, such as Alzheimers and Parkinson’s.
Studies have shown that elevating NAD+ levels may slow and even reverse SOME aspects of aging. NAD+ is essential to the function of sirtuins (proteins involved in prolonging life) and enhances cognitive function. Additionally, NAD+ slows down DNA damage associated with radiation exposure and aging.
More visible benefits of NAD+ CAN include enhanced energy, decreased fear and anxiety, heightened self awareness, improved mood, decreased cravings for alcohol and narcotics, and improved cognitive function, including enhanced problem solving abilities, mental clarity, focus and concentration.
Typically, the starting dose for anti-aging and mental health benefits is 500mg. The administration of this dosage usually takes about 4 hours. This deliberate infusion rate helps to enhance the absorption and limit any side effects that may occur. eating prior to and during therapy can ALSO help minimize side effects and shorten therapy time.
It may take multiple doses to realize the full benefit of NAD+ therapy.
Enhance your health & your brain with NAD+.
