Vegan Optimizer IV Therapy
A clean diet free of animal products is ethical and commendable, but it can leave room for some nutritional deficiencies. This is particularly true in the case of Vitamin B12, Zinc, and L-carnitine, an amino acid that plays an essential role in the production of energy by guiding long-chain fatty acids to the cells’ mitochondria.
L-carnitine removes the toxic by-products resulting from the energy production process to prevent buildup and cell death, and most of your body’s L-carnitine stores are contained within muscle tissues. The human body can produce L-carnitine, though it sometimes does not do so in sufficient quantities to sustain biologic function. Meat and fish are a plentiful dietary source of the amino acid, but one which vegans eschew as part of their lifestyle. This can leave your body deficient in a vital amino acid, one that emerging research suggests may also play a significant part in healthy aging, heart and brain health.
Health and Wellness Benefits of Vegan Optimizer IV Infusion Therapy
In addition to energy production and strong links to heart and brain health, L-carnitine may also be an especially important nutrient for highly active patients. This is especially true for those who have eliminated all animal products from their diets. Numerous studies indicate L-carnitine may provide a boost in exercise performance by improving post-workout recovery, increasing oxygen supply to muscles and boosting stamina while reducing muscle soreness after exercise.
Oral supplements must be broken down by the digestive system and then absorbed through the gastrointestinal tract. IV infusion, however, sends amino acids, vitamins and minerals directly into the circulatory system for full bioavailability and rapid results.
