Zinc is an important trace mineral that’s found in cells throughout the body. Your bones, tissues, organs, and bodily fluids all rely on it. Zinc supports the function of the immune system and is necessary for cell division, cell growth, carbohydrate breakdown, and wound healing. This key nutrient also has a role to play in thyroid function and blood clotting.
Zinc is typically absorbed through the digestive system from foods like pork, beef, chicken, nuts, and lentils. At the same, it plays a critical role in digestion. If you have poor digestive health because of a condition like leaky gut syndrome or celiac disease, you may have low zinc levels even if you consume enough. Low zinc can result in a compound issue since the body requires zinc to digest food in order to get the zinc it needs. You can see how this would make it difficult to benefit from zinc-rich foods or even oral supplements.
Fortunately, IV hydration therapy bypasses the digestive symptoms. It delivers zinc and other nutrients directly into the blood. Regardless of your level of digestion, you’ll get an immediate improvement in your zinc levels.
Signs of Low Zinc
If your zinc levels are low, you may experience:
- Hair loss
- Weight loss or gain
- Wounds that take a long time to heal
- Digestive problems
- Low libido
- Brain fog
- Poor concentration
IV hydration therapy can play a big role in ensuring your zinc levels are adequate.
How Zinc IV Therapy Can Help You
Getting a concentrated dose of zinc can provide several benefits. These include:
- A stronger immune system. A zinc deficiency will quickly weaken your T-cells – the defenders that recognize infection and multiply to fight it off. When these cells can’t do their jobs effectively, you’ll be more prone to illness.
- Improved brain function. Large amounts of zinc are found in the hippocampus – the area of the brain that controls learning and memory. Zinc also works with vitamin B6 to ensure the brain’s neurotransmitters are working properly. When you get IV therapy that includes zinc, you may help to boost your mental functioning.
- Enhanced athletic performance. If you want to build strength and improve your physical performance, you need to ensure you consume enough zinc. That’s because zinc assists in the production of several hormones including testosterone and growth hormones. Zinc can also improve recovery from strenuous exercise.
