The Power of Antioxidants in the Body


If you have your health, you have all you need to create a fulfilling life. Without it, you have nothing. Good health is, truly, your greatest commodity. It allows you to work, play, laugh, love, and experience everything important to you. Good health permits you to adventure, challenge yourself, and grow in ways you didn’t know you needed. Good health, then, really is everything.

Creating Good Health

If good health were simple, everyone would have it. Of course, there are basic things we can do to encourage good health. Things like eating well, exercising, managing stress, and getting an adequate amount of sleep all go a long way toward being our healthiest. They’re not the only things that can support our well-being, though. If you’re not feeling quite as well as you’d like to, IV therapy can help you recover and sustain your health. One of the ways we do that is to incorporate vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants into your customized IV therapy.

What Are Antioxidants?

Most of us are familiar with many of the compounds necessary for a well-balanced diet. For example, most of us know that vitamins are compounds necessary for good health and that many come from the foods we eat. We might know that minerals are present in soil and water. They may be absorbed by plants (and by us when we eat them) or consumed by animals. They include substances like:

  • Sodium
  • Potassium
  • Calcium

Antioxidants, on the other hand, are slightly less well understood by most people. Antioxidants fight free radicals in our cells. Free radicals are unstable or highly reactive atoms and molecules that cause damage to our cells and even our DNA. They cause something called oxidative stress, which, in turn, causes diseases. The best way to counteract free radicals is by consuming antioxidants, which help protect your cells from the damage caused by them. Antioxidants help with heart health, reducing disease-causing inflammation, and detoxifying your body.

Some antioxidants are:

  • Vitamin C
  • Vitamin E
  • Carotenoids (yellow, red, and orange pigments of color in plants)
  • Selenium (a trace mineral)
  • Glutathione (considered the master antioxidant)

Antioxidants can be consumed through food. Foods like:

  • Broccoli and other cruciferous vegetables
  • Citrus fruit
  • Nuts
  • Beans
  • Cantaloupe
  • Mangos
  • Tuna
  • Salmon
  • Eggs

are all good sources of antioxidants. These foods are part of a healthy daily diet, in part because of the antioxidant protection they provide.

An Extra Boost Of Antioxidant Goodness

Let’s face it – most of us don’t eat as well as we should. We legitimately try to incorporate all these healthy foods in our diets, but most of us inevitably miss something. IV therapy can help supplement antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals you may be missing.

Our therapy provides many options to help support your health and wellness. If needed or requested, we can include an extra boost of the antioxidants vitamin C or glutathione.
