Have you been feeling irritable lately? Noticed changes in your hair and nail growth? Or felt under the weather more often than usual? If so, there’s a chance your body might need more zinc.
Essential minerals help maintain good health, and zinc is one of the most important of these vital nutrients. The body uses zinc to promote growth and development, strengthen the immune system, produce protein, and much more. But your body doesn’t manufacture this mineral on its own, so a zinc IV drip can ensure your body has an adequate supply for optimal wellness.
Our Best-Selling Package with Zinc
Want to try a zinc IV? We recommend adding it to our Myers’ Cocktail, which is a popular choice for gaining energy while alleviating fatigue. Our medical professionals can perform this IV at homes, offices, or other locations throughout Arizona with our convenient mobile service.
Zinc IV Benefits
Zinc is a nutrient that helps your metabolism function properly, supports your immune system, and keeps you healthy in many other ways. It can also help your body produce proteins and DNA, decrease inflammation, heal wounds more quickly, and even suppress oil-producing glands to treat acne.
When you get a zinc IV infusion, you can experience these health benefits faster and more powerfully than ever before. IVs send nutrients directly into your bloodstream rather than making them travel through your digestive system first. This allows your body to access the nutrients right away and in greater quantities than it would with an oral supplement. The results are obvious: You’ll feel healthier almost instantly!
Mobile IV Nurses offers zinc IVs as part of several pricing packages. You can get zinc in a Myers’ Cocktail or add it to a bag of pure saline with other add-ins for a customized treatment just for you. Our registered nurses can help you find the right IV treatment for your unique health needs.
Zinc is in every cell of the human body, making it the second most abundant trace mineral. Zinc IV therapy has many uses. Some of the main ones include:
Zinc Deficiency Prevention
Your body does not produce zinc naturally, and research suggests that about 12% of Americans don’t have enough zinc in their system. Individuals who are especially at risk of a zinc deficiency include:
- Vegans and vegetarians: Meat is a prime source of zinc. Plant-based diets provide some zinc, but it’s not easily absorbed compared to zinc found in meats.
- Expectant mothers: Because zinc is so important for proper development, pregnant women should ensure they have enough zinc for their baby’s healthy growth in utero.
- People with digestive issues: Gastrointestinal surgery and health conditions may result in lower zinc absorption.
- Pregnant women (the fetus needs zinc to develop)
- Elderly individuals
- People struggling with alcohol addiction
- Those with chronic conditions like celiac disease, Crohn’s disease, or ulcerative colitis
If you want to be your healthiest self, you need to get zinc from foods, supplements, or a zinc IV.
There are many foods that contain zinc, including oysters, red meat, eggs, beans, and cheese. Some fruits and vegetables (like potatoes and green beans) do contain some zinc, but in far smaller quantities than meat and dairy products. Eating a balanced diet complete with these foods can help you avoid zinc deficiency in addition to adding zinc IV therapy to your routine.
Recovery from Colds
Zinc is a common go-to for people who hope to ease their cold symptoms. That’s because research indicates this mineral has the power to speed recovery and reduce symptoms such as runny nose, scratchy throat, congestion, and more. What’s more, zinc can support a strong immune system when you’re not sick.
Zinc speeds healing for cuts, scrapes, surgical incisions, and other wounds because it plays a role in cell regeneration. That means your body is better able to form collagen to help the skin recover from injury. Skin ulcers can also occur in people with this mineral deficiency, so a zinc IV drip may be beneficial in those cases.
We’re susceptible to vision problems as we get older. Issues such as age-related macular degeneration (AMD) can cause progressive vision loss, but zinc may help slow the effects of AMD.
In addition to collagen production, zinc also relieves the inflammation that reddens the skin during breakouts. Zinc has been used in oral and topical acne medications, so there could be a beneficial effect from zinc IVs as well.
Chronic inflammation is a contributing factor for many diseases, including arthritis, ulcerative colitis, heart disease, and diabetes. Zinc can lower the risk of these diseases by lowering chronic inflammation.
Does a zinc IV infusion have any side effects?
Side effects of a zinc drip can include nausea, upset stomach, or swelling around the injection site. The team at Mobile IV Nurses is dedicated to your health, safety, and comfort, so let your nurse know if you experience any negative side effects during your infusion.
How long does a zinc drip last?
Because zinc isn’t produced naturally in the body, your body has no way to store excess zinc. Therefore, an IV treatment can help you reach optimal zinc levels for about 24-48 hours after your infusion. This makes IV therapy a great way to quickly restore your zinc levels when you’re not feeling your best.
