With intravenous therapy, our doctors are introducing medicine, fluid and vitamins directly into your bloodstream without the breakdown due to stomach acid or what is called the “1st pass effect of your liver.” This unique method for delivering vitamins and minerals allows for nearly 100% absorption (in contrast to the 15-25% seen with oral vitamins).
The ability to deliver fluid and vitamins directly allows us to rapidly and completely restore your homeostatic balance. (Homeostasis is defined as the tendency toward a relatively stable equilibrium between interdependent elements, especially as maintained by physiological processes.) Restoring this balance allows you to get your body back to maximum efficiency. It allows you to improve your sleep, which is also key to maximizing performance and regulating your body’s normal function and immunity. In addition, at The Zelken Institute we don’t use simple salt water, or salt water mixed with sugar and a few electrolytes. We use an isotonic, buffered intravenous crystalloid solution with a physiochemical composition that closely reflects human plasma. Scientific data shows that the use of these buffered crystalloid solutions instead saline vastly improves physicochemical outcomes. All of this means that we can deliver the highest quality products right to where they are needed most in order to maximize your performance, improve your immune function, restore your quality of sleep and help you start being better.
