Vegan Or Vegetarian? Our IV Infusions Will Ensure Optimal Nutrition

Vegan Or Vegetarian Our IV Infusions Will Ensure Optimal Nutrition

You cut meat out of your diet (choosing to go vegan or vegetarian), and are feeling better than ever… until now. Today you’re fatigued, struggling to concentrate, getting more headaches than usual and are convinced you’re seeing more hairs in your brush than usual. (Next week, you’ll know you’re shedding because your ponytail will look thinner than ever.) Is it time to freak out? Nope. But it’s definitely time to supplement.

 

Vegan or vegetarian are you getting enough?

As a vegetarian or vegan, you need to eat very carefully to ensure you get all the nutrients needed for optimum wellness. Many of the foods you avoid are rich sources of vitamin B12 so, to ensure you get enough of it naturally, you’ll have to eat things that have been fortified with it, things like breakfast cereals and plant milk. Still, it’s not always possible to consume enough of it, especially in the case of zinc, another mineral vegetarians and vegans often lack. While you can find zinc in things like wheat germ, tofu, hemp seeds, lentils and oatmeal they’re not always at the top of everybody’s shopping list. Also, you’d need to eat three cups of tofu or six cups of oatmeal to get your daily requirement.

 

Getting enough of both vitamin B12 and zinc is vital to your health and developing a deficiency can happen so slowly you only realize it once the symptoms kick in – and at that point, your reserves will be pretty far gone. Potentially disastrous considering vitamin B12 is responsible for the creation of red blood cells and the maintenance of your nervous system while zinc is crucial for a healthy metabolism and immune system.

 

Signs for vegans or vegetarians to look out for

The symptoms of a vitamin B12 deficiency are tricky because you might only have some of them, not all of them. They include:

– Brain fog
– Pale skin
– Weakness and fatigue
– Breathlessness
– Dizziness
– Heart palpitations
– Insomnia
– Mood changes
– Increased headaches
– Gastric symptoms like constipation, diarrhoea, gas
– Nerve problems that might feel like an electrical zapping pain down your forearms or pins and needles in your hands or feet
– Sore muscles
– Hair loss
– Vision loss
– Glossitis (an inflamed tongue) and mouth sores

 

The symptoms of a zinc deficiency include the following:

– Brain fog
– Unexplained weight loss
– Diarrhoea
– Wounds that won’t heal
– Open sores on your skin
– A decreased sense of smell and taste
– Loss of appetite

 

Supplementation to the rescue

Sure, you can take vitamin B12 and zinc orally, but you could also consider Health Renewal’s Nutritional Support for Vegans & Vegetarians IV therapy. Each infusion contains vitamin B12 and zinc plus a mix of antioxidants to help fend off the cell damaging effects of free radicals.

 

What’s great about an IV infusion, as opposed to supplementing orally, is that the nutrients bypass your digestive system and go straight into your bloodstream in their purest form. This allows your cells to absorb it in a way that you get more benefit from the vitamins and minerals.

 

Easy and safe

Benefiting from IV infusion treatments at Health Renewal is easy and very safe. All patients will have to consult with a doctor beforehand to ensure they’re a candidate and lab tests might be ordered to ensure your kidneys are functioning properly as this is vital for anyone to benefit from an infusion. Your doctor might also suggest you’re given other nutrients, depending on the condition of your health.

 

When it’s infusion time, a highly-skilled nurse will be the one to set yours up as well as insert your needle, a very small butterfly one that’s specially created for the vein in your arm. You’ll then get to relax in our luxurious infusion suites and can even turn the hour into something you look forward to by including a pampering add-on treatment like a foot massage or pedi.

 

Taking the best care of your health has never been more efficient and indulgent!
