As the saying goes, when the tide goes out, you find out who’s naked. Now, consider the fact that Covid hit all of us like a tsunami, even though it appears to be in remission. On Sunday, September 18th, President Biden declared the pandemic officially over on “60 Minutes,” but not before revealing some serious deficiencies in our lifestyles, most notably when it comes to getting the vitamins and minerals our bodies need to fight off both disease and depression. Enter: IV nutrient drips.
Nutrient IV Therapy is a novel delivery system for essential vitamins, minerals, amino acids, and more. To achieve optimal wellbeing, our bodies need an appropriate amount of nutrients. Aside from nourishing our bodies, these vital compounds play crucial roles in healing, recovery, performance, and our mental well-being. Unfortunately, most adults cannot receive the nourishment they need through diet alone. And even when supplementing those diets with oral vitamins, many people remain malnourished.
This is why IV Therapy (or Vitamin IV Drips) have become a critical way for millions of people to receive essential vitamins, minerals, and amino acids. Unlike oral vitamins, which may or may not be absorbed properly, IV vitamins provide a 100% absorption rate because they deliver nutrients directly into the bloodstream.
“IV Therapy offers a safe, fast, and highly effective alternative to oral vitamins. These customized nutrient ‘cocktails’ deliver instant nourishment and allow your IV therapy specialist to target the specific needs of your body,” according to the team at Drip Gym, the leading IV therapy provider in New York.
Drip Gym serves patients living in Queens (NYC) and Great Neck (Long Island). The clinic calls its IV process “instant vitamin delivery” and specializes in delivering expertly crafted IV “cocktails” in the comfort of a luxurious facility that’s more reminiscent of a spa than a doctor’s office.
“We have designed the entire IV therapy process to rejuvenate our clients’ vitality, soothe anxiety, and keep them healthy long after they leave,” says a Drip Gym nurse. “This is an innovative therapy that has been doing wonders for peoples’ health and well-being for years. And as we’ve learned from Covid, no one can afford to be physically or mentally unhealthy these days — no matter how time-stressed or just plain stressed.”
In addition to its regular IV therapy, Drip Gym offers vitamin “pushes” and booster shots. According to the team, these treatments aren’t just for hangovers anymore. In fact, there are three major reasons to get dripping right now.
While the fountain of youth has still not been definitively located — though officials in St. Augustine, Florida might dispute this — according to medical professionals, IV nutrient drips are a safe, minimally invasive, and non-surgical way to promote healing and recovery, improve cognitive functioning, and boost performance by supplementing nutrients missing from one’s daily diet. “A quick nutrient drip or push is the perfect pick-me-up for those struggling with sports injuries, lack of energy, lackluster hair and nails, stress, and — yes — even hangovers,” according to the Drip Gym team. “You will look and feel younger when you leave.”
Finally, IV nutrient drips also combat dehydration, a common source of a prematurely aged or tired appearance.
The American Medical Association has reported that millions of Americans suffer from Covid fatigue, and not just those who have the virus. Low energy levels can persist long past recovery, even for those getting plenty of rest and exercise. This is due to a variety of factors, and Drip Gym’s nurses say that getting a regular shot of nutrients can help.
“If you’re struggling with a noticeable lack of energy, scheduling a consultation with a nutrient specialist is an important first step,” according to one specialist. “No one needs to go through a day or week feeling tired. Low energy is a vicious cycle. You’re not going to feel better until you have more energy.”
An apple a day may keep the doctor away, but Vitamin C has long been known to be an essential immune system booster. Still, many people wait until they feel sick before taking megadoses of the vitamin, to little or no effect. By then, it’s simply too late to avoid illness and its side effects. That’s why Vitamin C is an essential ingredient in most IV nutrient drips, though each is created for a patient’s unique needs. Before any IV drips are administered, for example, each Drip Gym patient undergoes a medical evaluation to determine if their body will benefit, and how to optimize the nutrient “cocktail” for maximum effect.
Because of its custom nature, the cost of IV Therapy varies per person. At Drip Gym, prices fluctuate depending on the specific IV, the number of IV drips needed, as well as any discounts or promotions available. Though the process is not covered by insurers, Drip Gym’s team has become skilled at creating plans that achieve optimal wellbeing for the lowest cost. They say that many patients are delighted to find a simple treatment that instantly fights aging, restores energy, and strengthens one’s immune system — and that takes so little from their schedule and budget. With the global wellbeing industry now valued at over $4 trillion by some estimates, patients may also be surprised that more people have not yet discovered these miniature fountains of youth.
