Vitamin B5 (dexpanthenol)

  • Vitamin B5 is a B vitamin that is involved in the formation of Co-enzyme A. Co-enzyme A is involved in 4% of all enzymatic reaction in the body and is vital to the metabolism of carbohydrates, proteins and fats 

  • Vitamin B5 is also involved in the regulation of cholesterol, steroid hormones, neurotransmitters and epithelial function

Vitamin B6 (Pyridoxine HCL)

  • Vitamin B6 is a cofactor in over 100 enzymes in the body. It is needed for the synthesis of amino acids, glucose from glycogen, vitamin B3, neurotransmitters, hemoglobin and for the development of lymphocytes 

  • Deficiency of vitamin B6 can cause acne, eczema, fatigue, anxiety, depression, confusion, seizures and neuropathy 

Calcium

  • Is a major building block of bone and teeth formation and maintenance 

  • Essential in muscle contraction and nerve conduction

  • Deficiency leads to osteopenia and eventually osteoporosis. Can also lead to muscle cramping and nerve conduction problems 

  • Increased calcium can help treat hypertension and hyperlipidemia 

  • High calcium intake is associated with reduced risk of colorectal cancer

Potassium

  • Potassium is the most abundant intracellular electrolyte in the body.

  • Due to the standard American diet it is common to not receive enough potassium through diet alone. 

  • Deficiency of potassium can cause fatigue, weakness, neuropathy, depression, constipation, fatigue, insomnia, mental impairment, low blood pressure, heart palpitations and much more. 

  • Potassium helps control cardiovascular function, neurological function, gastrointestinal function, muscle contraction, acid-base balance and much more.

Zinc

  • Zinc is one the 24 micronutrients essential for survival. Zinc is easily lost through sweating and so many active individuals are deficient in it

  • Zinc is essential in numerous enzymatic reactions, is a vital component of the immune system and is involved in multiple hormonal pathways such as thyroid and testosterone production 

  • Deficiencies as associated with a weakened immune system, low testosterone and depression 

  • Supplementing with zinc has been found to improve blood glucose, insulin sensitivity, decrease inflammation and provide numerous other benefits 

  • Supplementation of zinc has been found to enhance the immune system and can help treat viral and bacterial infections 

Selenium

  • Selenium is a trace mineral that is a cofactor for the bodies antioxidant system. It is an essential component to protecting the body from oxidative stress 

  • Selenium plays an important role in cardiovascular health, reproduction, mental health, and numerous other bodily process 

  • Selenium is an essential component to thyroid health and is needed in the conversion of T4 to T3 

  • Selenium plays an important role in both the immune system and inflammation.

  • Supplementation with selenium may play a role in the prevention of multiple different types of cancer.

Iron (Injection only)

  • Iron is an essential component of hundreds of proteins and enzymes that support essential biological functions, such as oxygen transport, energy production, DNA synthesis, cell growth and replication.

  • Iron deficiency is the most common nutritional deficiency worldwide, affecting primarily children, women of childbearing age, pregnant women, frequent blood donors, and individuals with certain medical condition

  • Iron deficiency commonly presents as microcytic anemia whose symptoms include fatigue, paleness, weakness, shortness of breath and more.

B Complex 100

  • B-complex contains thiamine (B1), riboflavin 5′-phopshate sodium (B2), niacinamide (B3), dexpanthenol (B5) and pyridoxine HCL (B6)

  • Thiamine helps with energy production and metabolism and helps with the functioning of the nerves, brain and heart 

  • Riboflavin is important in energy metabolism, in maintaining epithelial and mucosal health, and is an enzyme in multiple antioxidant systems 

  • Niacin is important in energy metabolism and in DNA repair and replication

Glutathione (GSH)

  • Glutathione is one of the most important antioxidants in the human body. It is used by every single cell and tissue

  • Glutathione is poorly absorbed when administered orally and so IV administration provides the greatest benefits 

  • Glutathione is primarily synthesized in the liver. Supplementation with glutathione has been found to be hepatoprotective 

  • Glutathione is involved in a multitude of enzymatic reactions, prevention of oxidative damage, DNA synthesis and repair, protein synthesis, metabolism of toxins and carcinogens, immune system function and multiple other important functions 

  • Deficiencies in glutathione have been found to cause aging, macular degeneration, diabetes, lung and GI disorders, and neurodegenerative disorders 

Magnesium

  • Is the second most prevalent electrolyte in the body and helps maintain fluid balance

  • Is a mineral cofactor that influences over 300 enzymatic systems in the body including energy production 

  • Deficiencies are common due to our soil being depleted of magnesium 

  • Deficiency can lead to muscle cramps, depression, insomnia, fatigue, asthma, arrhythmias, increased blood pressure, constipation and reduced insulin sensitivity 

  • Decreases blood pressure in patients with mild to severe hypertension 

  • Improves insulin sensitivity, reduces blood glucose, insulin, and lowers HbA1c in both diabetic and non-diabetic patients 

  • May improve bone mineral density, improve sleep and lower inflammation

Vitamin B12 (Both IV & intramuscular)

  • Vitamin B12 is an essential water-soluble vitamin found in mainly animal based foods. Due to having a compromised GI system many people have problems with absorbing Vitamin B12 through food and oral supplementation. Intravenous and intramuscular administration of Vitamin B12 avoids these issues

  • A deficiency of vitamin B12 can cause a broad range of symptoms such as megaloblastic anemia, GI lesions, neurologic damage including neuropathy and neurodegenerative diseases, depression, impaired cognition and numerous other symptoms 

  • Vitamin B12 is a vital component in the production of DNA, methylation and energy metabolism 

  • Many common prescriptions, such as metformin, cause B12 deficiency. If you are on prescription medication you may have various vitamin/ mineral deficiencies. 

  • Vitamin B12 can be used to treat numerous conditions such as fatigue, depression, atherosclerosis, infertility, neuropathy, autoimmune disease and many more. 

Amino acids

  • At optimum wellness we offer a broad spectrum of amino acids to our patients. This includes infusions of all essential amino acids as well as single amino acids to benefit specific health conditions 

  • Amino acids play a vital role in human health and can be used as the building blocks of proteins, other biomolecules or can be used as an energy source.  

  • Supplemental amino acids may be beneficial in athletes, vegans, the elderly, those with low muscle mass and those suffering from malnourishment or cachexia. 

  • Lysine: may be used to treat viral infections, is important for collagen and carnitine formation and increases calcium absorption. 

  • Proline: is a building block of the protein collagen in tendons, bones, cartilage and skin, and of other proteins. 

  • Carnitine:  may be used to improve muscle mass, reduce symptoms of peripheral neuropathy, used to improve fat metabolism and used to improve symptoms in kidney failure.
