Vitamin Drips Provide Anti-Aging Benefits

Aug 31, 2017 07:05PM

When people think of the anti-aging options, remedies like Botox, fillers and plastic surgery come to mind. While aging gracefully may include these procedures, the idea of prevention and taking care of ourselves from the inside-out is on the rise.

The public and many in the medical community are rediscovering the anti-aging benefits of going back to basics. A paradigm shift toward wellness and prevention can be observed in the increase of healthy restaurants, demand for organic food selections and continued concern with the use of chemicals, pesticides and GMOs used in the production of our food supply. Today’s health conscience consumers are looking for natural ways to look and feel better, which has led to a resurgence of some old “new” treatments.

One of the fastest growing options is intravenous (IV) vitamin micronutrient therapy, more commonly referred to as vitamin drips. Physician John Myers is typically credited as the leading pioneer in this field dating back to the late 1950s. He used a combination of B vitamins, vitamin C, calcium and magnesium intravenously to treat a variety of conditions in his patients. Anecdotal benefits include increased energy, improved mood, better sleep and glowing skin. This is now referred to as the Myers Cocktail, which is the foundation for today’s amped-up versions.

IV vitamin bars are opening all around the country. Today’s drips typically add antioxidants such as glutathione and can be customized for inflammation, detoxification and anti-aging.

The Drip Room opened in 2013 at 4251 N. Brown Ave., Ste. 3A, in Scottsdale. For more information, visit
