How to Use IV Nutrition to Fight the Flu

It has been a long, miserable flu season, and unfortunately it is far from over. Despite Tampa’s pleasant climate, the flu has no interest in losing its force just yet. You might be tempted to board yourself up inside to avoid catching the flu, but IV Nutrition offers a far more practical and effective way to boost your body’s defenses and keep you healthy through flu season and beyond.

IV Nutrition is an innovative treatment method that delivers nutrients directly into the bloodstream. Normal vitamins and supplements are not efficiently absorbed into your body due to stress, medications, caffeine, alcohol, unbalanced gut bacteria, and a number of other factors that minimize absorption. It’s possible that you are only benefiting from as little as two to four percent of the vitamins you take orally!

This is a major concern, especially when you are trying to bulk up your immune system to ward off the flu. So instead of chugging orange juice and stocking up on Ester-C, you can opt to receive IV Nutrition therapy with vitamin C and glutathione. This will ensure that your body receives the full power of the most important vitamins and minerals you need to stay flu-free.  

Vitamin C

Vitamin C plays many critical roles in the body, including strengthening your immune system. It has actually been less than 100 years since vitamin C became widely available as a supplement to improve our health. When Albert Szent-Gyorgyi won the Nobel Prize in Physiology in 1937 for his research on vitamin C, he provided proof that that vitamin C maintains healthy tissue, accelerates wound healing, and boosts immune function. Without enough vitamin C, your body struggles to kill invaders and produce antibodies that fight known infections.


Glutathione is equally as important to your immune health. It is considered the body’s “master antioxidant” and performs vital functions such as the regulation of cell growth and division, DNA synthesis and repair, and enhancement of both systemic and humoral immune function. In fact, glutathione is a substance found in every cell in the body to neutralize free radicals, prevent cellular damage, and promote t-cell function.
