The Stress and Anxiety IV is a great option for those trying to reduce acute cases of anxiety and/or depression as well stifle onset of age related memory loss. This has the powerful amino acids GABA, taurine, and theanine, vitamin B12 and the “relaxation” mineral, magnesium, to help with mental and physical relaxation. This IV was designed to help you attain optimal neurotransmitter function. It provides important B vitamins, which play key roles in the formation and breakdown of neurotransmitters such as serotonin and dopamine as well as vitamin C which helps produce norepinephrine.
Glutathione is the brain’s most powerful antioxidant and is needed for cellular production of energy and proper immune function. It helps remove free radicals from blood and cells before they can cause oxidative damage. The cells of the human brain consume about 20% of the body’s oxygen and consequently generate high rates of free radicals in the brain due to this process. Therefore, the detoxification of free radicals is an essential task within the brain making the importance the antioxidant glutathione very important. Deficiencies in important vitamins, minerals, and amino acids are critical in producing adequate defense mechanisms for the brain. This nutrient IV provides nutrients that will help strengthen the body’s immune function and defense.
Magnesium plays an important role in many of the body’s enzymatic reactions and plays an important role in neurochemical transmission and muscle contraction and relaxation and therefore has been used successfully for seizures and other muscle related problems. Magnesium acts on the vascular system to produce vasodilation – the relaxation of blood vessel walls increasing blood flow, which can help with lowering blood pressure and also preventing and treating migraine headaches. It is responsible for over 300 essential metabolic reactions in the body. It is required for synthesizing proteins in the mitochondria, and for generating energy in most of the body’s basic cellular reactions.
GABA is derived from the amino acid Glutamic acid. It is found in large amounts in the Hypothalamus. GABA is a muscle relaxant, decreases anxiety, aids in secreting growth hormone, promotes sleep, and helps with hypoglycemia.
The natural form of B12 is better absorbed than Cyanocobalamin and has been used to treat diseases such as, pernicious anemia, and diabetic and peripheral neuropathy. Vitamin B12 is an essential component for proper digestion and absorption of foods and for normal metabolism of carbohydrates, and fat. It aids in maintaining healthy nerve cells and red blood cells and is needed to make DNA. Vitamin B12 is also involved in homocysteine metabolism and plays a critical role in proper energy metabolism, immune function, and nerve function.
Taurine is an essential amino acid, but stops producing it in times of extreme physical exertion, therefore utilizing supplementation. Taurine acts as a metabolic transmitter and is also known to have a detoxifying effect. Taurine aids in glucose metabolism by increasing the activity of the insulin receptors making this a good option for diabetics or those with insulin resistance. Taurine also improves fat metabolism in the liver and helps to decrease triglycerides and LDL levels by reducing bile acids. Taurine works on the same receptors in the brain as glycine and GABA to promote relaxation.
Vitamin B6 may be the most important of the eight B vitamins when it relates to brain function. It is also important in amino acid synthesis and it plays a critical role in the methylation cycle. Vitamin B6 helps the body make several neurotransmitters, the chemicals that carry signals from one nerve cell to another. It is needed for normal brain development and function, and helps the body make the hormones serotonin, dopamine, norepinephrine and GABA, which influence mood, and melatonin, which help regulate the important sleep cycle.
People may experience a feeling of warmth or mild discomfort when receiving an IV. Rare complications that can occur during intravenous therapies include phlebitis (inflammation of the vein) and fluid infiltration (leaking of fluid into the surrounding tissues).
