For many years professional athletes, celebrities and musicians from Floyd Mayweather to Adele have used IV Vitamin Drips to keep their bodies at optimal performance and help fight off illness and fatigue due to their busy lifestyles. This “intravenous micro-nutrient therapy” is all the rage in natural healthcare and wellbeing, and it is available at Aesthetics11 with Dr Wikus Pretorius.
Intravenous (IV) vitamin therapy delivers vitamins, minerals, amino acids and antioxidants directly into the bloodstream, for maximum absorption. All of these are classified as “essential nutrients” as they cannot be produced by our own bodies. In today’s modern world, many people deficient in essential nutrients because of issues such as bad diet, stress and the type of foods we consume. Our food also has lower nutritional value than in the past and our gut health is often compromised due to high stress levels which also means we absorb less nutrients then we should.
The IV vitamin drips allows 99.9% of essential nutrients to be absorbed quickly and safely directly into the blood stream, compared to 8% absorption that oral, tablet forms deliver. The goal is to provide these nutrients directly into your body for maximum absorption to immediately nourish your body at the cellular level, restore balance and achieve optimal well-being both physically and mentally.
IV vitamin drips can be used both proactively to maintain optimum health, energy and performance, as well as to support the treatment of a variety of acute illnesses and chronic conditions. Some of the key benefits you can achieve include: improved energy & vitality levels, optimum health & immunity, enhanced mood, improved sleep, reduced stress, boosted hydration & muscle recovery and enhanced skin health and skin brightening.
Our Megadrips are made in a sterile, registered laboratory using different combinations of vitamins, minerals and amino acids to meet specific requirements or for individual conditions. Dr Wikus Pretorius at Aesthetics 11 Skin & Body Clinic, can assist you in selecting the best drip for your needs.
