Zinc

WHAT IS ZINC :

Zinc is an essential mineral that supports the immune system, metabolic function, and wound healing. This mineral can also reduce oil production in the skin and protect against bacterial infections and inflammation in the body. Among its many functions within the human body, Zinc plays an important role in the metabolism of more than 300 enzymes that rely on it to catalyze chemical reactions. It is also essential for protein structure and is involved in a number of biological processes. 

Several organs and tissues within the body are reliant on Zinc, including the bones and skin as well as the nervous, immune and digestive systems. Zinc has also been proven to have significant positive impacts on the duration and severity of certain illnesses such as influenza and the common cold. When taken at the onset of symptoms, it has been shown to reduce both the length and severity of such illnesses.

Zinc also plays an important role in skincare. Its anti-inflammatory properties have been used for centuries to treat acne, rosacea, eczemas, ulcers, wounds, and a wide variety of inflammatory skin conditions. It can help keep skin looking younger and healthier by acting as an enzyme cofactor and assisting collagen synthesis and DNA repair.

Iv infusions are an effective and easy way to introduce beneficial doses of Zinc into the body without having to rely on taking large quantities of supplements or eating specific amounts of certain food groups on a daily basis.

THE BENEFITS OF ZINC:

Zinc plays an important role in numerous bodily functions. Some examples of the role it plays in the body include:

  • Reduction of Acne
  • Reduction of the Duration of Illness
  • Improved Respiratory Health
  • Supports Wound Healing
  • Mood Booster
  • Stress Reduction
  • Beneficial in the Treatment of Depression
  • Stabilisation of Testosterone Levels
  • Stabilisation of Blood Glucose Levels

Studies show that in cases of respiratory tract infections, such as influenza, COVID-19, and the common cold, Zinc supplementation is effective in reducing the duration of illness as well associated symptoms. A recent study found that for patients using Zinc supplements that were exposed to a viral illness, it was successful in preventing respiratory tract infections from occurring in some individuals. For others who caught one of the beforementioned viral infections, symptoms were resolved 2 days quicker for those who were taking the Zinc supplements. In addition, those taking the Zinc also reported a reduction of the severity of symptoms on the 3rd day of the viral infection compared to those on the placebo drug.

Zinc has also been proven to be beneficial for people suffering from depression. Due to depression’s elevated glutamatergic neurotransmission, zinc inhibits N-methyl-D-aspartate (NMDA) receptors, which can be helpful in treating the condition. Zinc may also increase levels of a brain-derived neurotrophic factor in patients with depression, making it a dual-action treatment for those suffering from the condition.

The importance of Zinc for skin health cannot be understated. Due to its anti-acneic properties, it is used for a wide variety of skin conditions. As a result of zinc’s anti-inflammatory properties, swelling and redness are reduced in the body. In addition to protecting the skin and aiding wound healing, it can also reduce the severity of acne. The body does not store zinc for long periods of time, so it is important to consume zinc every day in order to maintain overall health. Lack of it (or deficiency) can lead to skin conditions like rashes, lesions, and flare-ups.

IV drip therapy allows for the administration of nutrients, vitamins, and medications directly into a vein. This bypasses the digestive system and allows for immediate use by the body. By administering Zinc directly into the bloodstream, it becomes available for immediate use. Because it is delivered directly to the cells that need it, IV drips have the potential to impact and improve the function of a wide variety of body systems.

BENEFITS OF USING ZINC IV INJECTIONS:

As an enzyme cofactor, zinc promotes the synthesis of collagen and DNA repair, which keeps the skin looking younger and healthier. It can also prevent acne breakouts and reduce scarring in the case of previous skin injuries. Zinc is also known for its strong anti-inflammatory properties which help to reduce symptoms and duration of multiple viral illnesses making it essential to ensure adequate levels of Zinc are consumed.

Zinc supplements can be taken in multiple different forms, they can be ingested orally, applied topically, or consumed as part of a well-balanced diet. However, IV injection is the most effective and direct route of administration, allowing for high doses to be introduced directly into the bloodstream, bypassing the digestive system, and allowing for rapid access to the mineral at a cellular level. This is especially useful for acne sufferers or people suffering from viral illnesses who want fast and effective results.

HOW MUCH ZINC DO WE NEED ON A DAILY BASIS?

The recommended dosage of Zinc for most healthy adults is 8-11 milligrams (mg) per day. There is also evidence to suggest that for acne sufferers, a dosage of 30mg per day is beneficial in relieving the symptoms of acne and helping to protect against bacterial infections and inflammation. It is important to note that Zinc is not stored within the body for long, making daily consumption important to maintain adequate levels in order to prevent conditions like rashes and lesions from forming and becoming Zinc deficient.

However, it can be difficult to get the required amount just by diet alone. For the treatment of Zinc deficiencies, or for preventative measures, the typical Zinc injection dose contains a high-potency concentration of Zinc, making IV drips an easy and effective option.

Generally, the effects of Zinc drip will depend on your overall physical condition and the level of treatment. However, you should begin to notice the impact between two to four days.

SIGNS OF DEFICIENCY

Due to Zincs many important functions throughout the body, deficiency effects multiple organs and tissues, including bones and skin as well as the digestive, nervous and immune systems. It can also prevent quite physically, with flare ups and break out of acne. Even if one were to eat large amounts of foods rich in Zinc, such as fruits, vegetables, and grains, deficiencies can still occur. This is because many fruits and vegetables are not grown properly and may therefore contain insufficient amounts of vitamins.

  • Diarrheaea
  • Delayed Growth
  • Loss of Appetite
  • Breakouts and Acne
  • Regular Illnesses and Infections
ZINC : FOOD SOURCES

Zinc is naturally present in a range of different food sources, including pumpkin seeds, chickpeas, fortified breakfast cereals, fruits, and legumes. However, it is most abundant in meat, seafood, and poultry.

In order to achieve a sufficient intake of zinc, a varied diet containing a wide variety of food sources is required. It is for this reason that one of the most effective ways to ensure an adequate amount of Zinc is attained is by intravenous (IV) administration.

IN SUMMARY

Zinc is a vital mineral for not only our physical, but also our mental health. It has many health benefits including reducing or even preventing colds and flu’s, reducing inflammation within the body, improving mental health as well as reducing the occurrence of acne and breakouts.

By increasing Zinc levels within the body, for example by drip administration, early in the course of a cold or other viral illness has been proven to reduce the duration and severity of the illness, if not prevent it all together. In addition to this. By acting as an enzyme cofactor, it is important for collagen synthesis and DNA repair, keeping the skin looking young and healthy at the same time.

IV drip therapy is an effective way to provide your body with the essential nutrients it needs, as well as its ability to cleanse your body of toxins and free radicals that can damage cells and DNA and therefore increase aging. This is one of the many reasons that IV therapy is such an effective way to obtain Zinc as it is fast and efficient and ensures that the correct dosage is administered, each and every time.
