Our bodies rely on a continual source of certain key amino acids to perform well, particularly under chronic stress or chronic immune system compromisation. Unfortunately, not all of us absorb enough amino acids from our foods or dietary supplements, which means it may be necessary to seek other treatment solutions to fortify our mental and physical health. Fortunately, MD Beauty Labs in West Palm Beach and Palm Beach, FL has a new treatment called IV NAC.

What Is IV NAC?

IV NAC is a type of IV drip therapy that can help you boost your immune system, detoxify your liver and kidneys, and improve brain and respiratory health. NAC stands for N-acetyl cysteine, a special type of amino acid that plays a key role in synthesizing natural antioxidants in the body through glutathione, the mother of all antioxidants. While N-acetyl cysteine is capable of being produced by your body naturally, this is only possible if your body has other amino acids available – and that’s why IV therapy may be a good idea to help detoxify your body.

How Can This Treatment Help You?

The goal of this treatment is to help your body produce natural antioxidants, which will help fight against premature cellular aging that may lead to compromised immune systems, kidney, liver, and lung disease, and even age-related brain degeneration. In terms of restorative health, antioxidants are our most powerful allies since they fight against the free radicals that can cause our cells to break down more quickly.

But how can this treatment help you specifically? IV drips with N-acetyl cysteine have been used to detoxify the body of too much acetaminophen in medical settings for years. As a supplement treatment, NAC can also help with issues such as:

  • Hangover detoxification
  • Fertility improvement
  • Mood swings and depression
  • Memory and concentration
  • Lung inflammation
  • Weight loss
  • Stabilizing blood sugar
  • And more

What IV Treatment Options Are Available?

NAC treatments are unique due to the fact that this amino acid can be added to virtually any type of IV treatment to help boost your mental health and immune function. In fact, combining NAC with other IV therapy cocktails may boost the efficacy of the IV treatment. You can safely combine this treatment with IV cocktails such as:

  • Energy Burst
  • Hangover Detox
  • Libido Lift
  • Vitamin Infusion
  • NAD

You can also customize your NAC IV treatments. For example, along with N-acetyl cysteine, you can create a custom cocktail of the vitamins, minerals, and other enzymes you feel are appropriate for boosting your mental and physical health. We can help you customize your IV therapy to meet all of your restorative wellness needs.

How Does IV NAC Work?

Like other forms of IV therapy, this treatment works by using a customized saline IV drip to infuse you with rich vitamins and minerals that will help boost your health and hydrate your body. It usually takes an IV drip about 20 to 40 minutes to complete and your treatment may be most successful during the morning to early afternoon hours. If you have had an IV line before in a hospital, then you will find that this treatment is remarkably similar.

How Soon Will You Be Able To Enjoy Results?

Most people start to feel the positive effects of IV therapy within the same day as treatment. Your initial burst of energy and refreshment will largely be contributed to the amount of hydration that you have received. The true results of your treatment will be evident within a day or two of your treatment as your body absorbs the IV cocktail and begins to synthesize natural antioxidants.

How Long Do Results Last?

The results of this treatment will last for varying amounts of time depending on the type of NAC treatment you have. In general, most people can expect results to last for two or more weeks at a time. Your results may last longer if you are physically healthy or if you have used an IV cocktail infused with vitamins and minerals that support NAC function.

Who Is This Treatment Right For?

The vast majority of people are good candidates for any kind of IV therapy, including NAC infusions. If you are not currently pregnant or breastfeeding, and if you feel you will benefit from an infusion of natural antioxidants to help boost your overall health, you are likely a good candidate. If you are on certain psychotropic medications for bipolar disorder or depression, or if you are taking blood-thinners, you may need to talk to your primary care physician before you start NAC IV therapy.

How Frequently Should You Have Treatments?

Most people can safely have IV treatment about once a month. However, the frequency of your treatments will be determined by your overall health goals and needs. For some patients, NAC IV therapy is ideal as an occasional pick-me-up once or twice a year, while others may find more benefit in treatments that are more regular, such as once a month or once every other month.

If you aren’t sure what the best treatment frequency is for you, we will be happy to help you find the frequency and IV cocktail combination that helps support your mental and physical health.

What Else Do You Need To Know About This Treatment?

One of the most important things to know about IV therapy is that the treatment is generally safe. Many vitamins and minerals are water-soluble, which means that your body will naturally filter out what it doesn’t need; for vitamins and minerals that are fat-soluble, a regular exercise routine will also help you metabolize the nutrients and put them to the best use.
