Get Your Vitamin B’s and C on!

Being healthy is as easy as ABC.

Tricia Williams, Food Matters NYC and Dr. Anthony Lyon

Everyone that has a full lifestyle can relate to the daily juggling act of work, family and the myriad activities that make life fun. Meet this challenge with ease by charging up your system with plenty of B vitamins along with vitamin C. And by doing so, avoid last year’s pattern of waiting until your system is run down, which then leaves you vulnerable to the inevitable scratchy throat and the weeks’ worth of hot tea and tissues that follow. Instead, provide the vital energy producing pathways in your body with what they need, in a form they can readily use, with intravenous vitamin therapy.

Here is why a basic I.V. vitamin drip that contains 5 B vitamins + C is so crucial:

B1 (Thiamine): is absolutely required for your body to break down and convert carbohydrates and branched chain amino acids into energy; is necessary to synthesize the building blocks for your DNA; additionally, it keeps glutathione (an essential component for liver detoxification) in a functional state.

B2 (Riboflavin): a key factor in the production of energy in the powerhouses of your cells, the mitochondria.

B5 (Pantothenic Acid): imperative to transform all the life-sustaining macronutrients you consume daily — fat, protein and carbs — into the building blocks your body can then utilize as energy.

B6 (Pyridoxine): paramount in the metabolism of polyunsaturated fatty acids and a primary participant of the nutritional triad in the metabolism of homocysteine. Keeping your arterial walls clean depends on the proper conversion of homocysteine, a breakdown product of protein.

B9 (Folate): is critical to maintain your mainframe (your DNA) in a healthy, repaired state and in amino acid metabolism.

Vitamin C: the ultimate anti-oxidant, it starts by charging up your adrenal glands so they can meet your daily energy demands. And while you are feeling supercharged, it is working to build collagen, to scrub the inside of your arteries, and to maintain steady blood sugar levels.
