Enjoy the Holidays by Keeping Well
Prioritize Your Health this Season at the IV
With the temperature dropping and flu season upon us, many of you are keen to know whether there is a way to ensure you are fighting fit all winter long. On top of the shift in weather, the holiday season is notoriously filled with long shopping lists, fun-filled social events, and more family gatherings than you can keep up with.
Why do we get sick in the winter?
In December, there are often more circulating viruses which may be due to more indoor activities. Our resources of vitamin C, which is critical and necessary for the robustness of our immune system, may start to run low because of changes in our fresh food intake compared to the summer months. As our Vitamin C resources deplete we become more vulnerable to infection and our body may use up our stores of all vitamins and minerals in trying to keep us fit and well. This is where IV vitamin therapy jumps in to support.
Also challenging in the winter months is getting enough vitamin D, a fat-soluble vitamin we primarily make with the help of sunlight. Vancouver is well known for its dark and rainy winter days, which limits Vancouverites from getting enough sunlight and makes low Vitamin D levels very common resulting in more colds and flu.
How do we keep well all winter long?
