HOW DOES THE IV MAX-IMMUNE WORK?

This drip provides the nutrients and co-factors needed to support cellular production of energy in the mitochondria, and methylation. Methylation is the process in which methyl groups are added to the DNA molecule that affects many processes in the body including detoxification, energy, stress response, brain chemistry, and the immune response – controlling T-cell production, fighting microbes, and regulating the immune system. If you have a shortage of methyl groups or your methylation cycle is interrupted, you can easily become sick.

FAQS

Ingredients: B Vitamins, Vitamin B5, Vitamin B6, Methyl B12 (active B12), 5-MTHF (active folic acid), Vitamin C, Calcium, Magnesium

  • B Vitamins support cellular energy, detoxification, digestion, mood, and immunity.15-19
  • Vitamin B5 supports hormone production and is required in higher amounts during times of stress.
  • Vitamin B6 is required for the conversion of tryptophan to serotonin to melatonin for optimal mood and sleep.
  • Methyl B12 is an active form of vitamin B12 for energy.
  • 5-MTHF is the active form of folic acid.
  • Vitamin C supports immunity, helps fight cancer1-25, reduces the microbial load (antiviral at high concentrations); antihistamine activity that helps allergies, hives, and asthma; supports the adrenals to help cope with everyday stressors, and research shows that 15g of IVC can correct red blood cell abnormalities in 100% of people with chronic fatigue syndrome (DFS) within minutes1-14,20
  • Calcium plays a central role in the activation of the cells of the immune system, bone health, nerve and muscle function, and energy.21,22
  • Magnesium is an immune-stimulant and helps to reduce bacterial and viral infections.23
  • Selenium is an antioxidant that lowers oxidative stress in the body, which reduces inflammation, and enhances immunity.24
  • Zinc supports immunity, hormone balance, and adrenal gland. 

Note – formulas may be modified occasionally.

OPTIONAL ADD-ONS:

  • IM Fuel D: Vitamin D helps support immunity, sleep, mood, energy, and reduce inflammation, oxidative stress, and cardiovascular disease.25

OTHER ORAL CONSIDERATIONS

  • L-Arginine is an amino acid that can boost immune T cells, which play a critical role in the immune defense against viruses, bacteria, and cancer cells.
  • Glutamine removes excess ammonia from the body and is the preferred source of fuel for immune cells.
  • Glutamic Acid is essential for T-cell activation and B-cell immunoglobulin production to support immunity.
  • Phosphatidylcholine helps to reduce Hepatitis B and C symptoms.
  • Sodium bicarbonate neutralizes acidity in the body to increase the immune response.
