Healthy levels of vitamin D is essential to health.

Maintaining ideal levels may reduce the risk of stroke among US adults. Specifically women over 50. A recent study found that vitamin D levels were significantly associated with increased risk of stroke and higher vitamin D levels were significantly associated with reduced risk of stroke. The association was found to be "particularly evident" in young females aged 20-50 years.

Vitamin D is known to be vital for maintaining healthy bones and other health benefits and now there is evidence that is it linked to brain growth and development. Vitamin D comes from sun exposure, certain foods and supplements.

In addition to vitamin D it is also important to maintain healthy levels of vitamin C.

Researchers have found a link between Vitamin C depletion and spontaneous intracerebral hemorrhages. 

We offer an array of vitamin and nutrient drips to protect your health.

IV Nutrient Descriptions

An estimated one million Americans have an acute cardiac event or stroke each year.  Vitamin C plays a vital role in blood pressure regulation and the formation of collagen.  Collagen makes up our blood vessels and gives them a flexible element.

Vitamin C protects against infections from viruses and bacteria.  We recommend that patients take Vitamin C daily and find a comfortable daily dose somewhere between 500mg up to 3000 mg for some. The dose depends on an individual's constitution, their medical condition and bowel tolerance. Foods high in vitamin C are raw peppers, fresh oranges, orange juice, black currents, citrus fruits and parsley. High vitamin C rich foods are not enough to provide therapeutic clinical changes so we need to take Vitamin C supplements and or I.V. Vitamin C drips. 

Vitamin D levels are easy to check and covered by most insurances.  Correcting inefficiencies and deficiencies is the best cost effective measure to prevent depression. I recommend that patients take 5000 iu. of Vitamin D3 from Xymogen between October and April. Xymogen's formula is soy-free. 

We recommend Xymogen's Bio C 1:1 for  good absorbability.  Most over the counter brands contain corn starch and fillers.  Vitamin C needs to be replenished daily as it is water soluble.  It comes in liquid, capsule and I.V. forms.  We offer Vitamin C drips.  Step One - get your Vitamin C level tested. Call us to schedule your very affordable and short consultation today.
