The human body is a complex structure that relies on various vitamins, minerals, and other nutrients to accomplish and maintain its optimal function. Unfortunately, the modern diet lacks many of these essential nutrients. According to the National Institutes of Health, many people in the U.S. don’t get the recommended amount of magnesium from their diet alone. But magnesium chloride taken orally in high doses can also cause serious side effects. This is where IV therapy steps in.
What is a Magnesium Drip for?
Intravenous magnesium chloride, delivered via a Magnesium IV Drip, is an effective treatment to enhance the function of the muscular and nervous systems. Magnesium is essential for maintaining good health and plays a key role in everything from exercise performance to heart health and brain function.
Many conditions can be managed through an IV Magnesium Drip therapy, such as anxiety, chronic fatigue syndrome, fibromyalgia, and hypertension. It offers a multitude of health benefits, including:
Boost exercise performance
Support healthy blood sugar levels
Promote heart health
Help prevent migraine attacks
Improve PMS symptoms
Promote bone health
Support better sleep
Help reduce anxiety symptoms
Dr. Barb Woegerer, a licensed Naturopathic Doctor and health advocate, describes magnesium as “The Miracle Mineral.” It is involved in close to 800 enzymatic reactions in our body. In fact, every cell in your body contains this mineral and needs it to function.
Why choose IV therapy instead of oral supplements?
When it comes to magnesium, there are several types of supplements and ways to take it, and it’s important to know the difference between them — you can take magnesium in tablets, powder, or intravenously.
It's safe to get high levels of magnesium naturally from food, but adding large amounts of supplements to your diet can prove dangerous as it often results in diarrhea that can be accompanied by nausea and abdominal cramping.
Magnesium IV therapy is a method worth considering because it bypasses the GI tract and can improve bioavailability. The Drip Factor uses magnesium in several variations including the Myers Cocktail, Blood Pressure Support, Athletic Performance, Antioxidant Express and
can add it on to any infusion where it is not already included.
If your lifestyle or an underlying health condition puts you at risk of a magnesium deficiency, you may benefit from an infusion.
