IV Therapy for Cardiovascular Health
Cardiovascular health and disease is one of the leading medical concerns of today’s society. Cardiovascular disease often refers to a number of conditions that typically include; stroke, heart disease, heart attack, or heart failure. Symptoms of Heart disease may also include heart valve problems or arrhythmias. Cardiovascular diseases are the leading causes of death globally, representing over one third of deaths worldwide.
Most medical professionals agree that a number of cardiovascular diseases can be prevented through diet and lifestyle choices. Poor nutrition, inactivity, and stress are all contributing lifestyle choices that have profound effects on heart health. The World Health Organization reports that annually over 17 million people die premature death from cardiovascular diseases. Symptoms of coronary artery disease may include; chest pain or tightness, shortness of breath, pain in the neck, jaw, stomach, or upper back, or numbness in the arms or legs.
IV nutritional therapy can help restore nutritional deficiencies that may be a result from poor nutrition or lifestyle choices. IV therapy can not be considered a cure for any cardiovascular disease but should be considered a complementary therapy used in addition to other healthy lifestyle choices. IV drips deliver pharmacy grade nutrition directly into the bloodstream and increase rates of absorption in which oral supplements fail in comparison.
IV hydration therapy decreases rates of dehydration by restoring lost fluids which are a necessary component of heart health. Your heart works considerably harder to pump much needed nutrients to organs when in a dehydrated state. IV hydration helps balance fluid levels allowing the body to efficiently transport necessary hormones, fluids, and nutrition throughout the body. Hydration levels also have severe effects on blood pressure, often causing it to rise due to the body's dehydrated state.
Through the delivery of powerful antioxidants, IV therapy helps benefit heart health by combating oxidative stress and increasing the body’s ability to repair damaged cells. Vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant in which studies have shown may help reduce blood pressure and improve cardiovascular health.
Magnesium may play an important role in cardiovascular health and is often used in the treatment or prevention in emergency care situations pertaining to heart disease.
Deficiencies in magnesium may result in irregular heartbeat patterns or arrhythmias. This vital mineral is known for helping regulate blood pressure and plays an important role in controlling muscle contraction and relaxation. Due to this, magnesium plays an integral part in helping your heart beat.
