Protect Yourself This Cold and Flu Season With IV Vitamin Therapy

Cold and Flu Season, IV Vitamin Therapy, vitality Institute of Agoura

It can be hard to escape cold and flu viruses when infections are at their peak, but making sure you have a strong and healthy immune system can help. Your immune system protects your entire body by defending you against foreign organisms. When it becomes weakened, you have a higher risk of getting sick from the germs that cause the cold and flu.

Instead of waiting for these infections to sideline you, Dr. Michael Sarti offers IV vitamin therapy infusions at the Vitality Institute of Agoura in Agoura Hills, California. He customizes each of his IV treatments to strengthen and support your immune system, so it’s ready to fight when cold and flu viruses try to attack.

Boosting your immune system with IV vitamin therapy

Intravenous (IV) vitamin therapy boosts your immune system and replenishes your health by delivering vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants directly into your bloodstream.

When you take oral doses of vitamins and minerals, they have to pass through your entire digestive system, so your body can only absorb approximately 40% of the nutrients. With IV therapy, Dr. Sarti administers higher doses of these essential nutrients into your bloodstream. This approach enables these vital nutrients to avoid your digestive tract altogether by going directly to your cells through your bloodstream, providing increased levels of absorption.

When you have the right amounts of vitamins and minerals in your system, your body can function more effectively, and your immune system can better fight disease or infection.

A customized approach to fighting the cold and flu

IV vitamin therapy isn’t a one-size-fits-all approach to improving your health and supporting your immune system. Dr. Sarti formulates a customized IV infusion based on your specific needs and nutrient deficiencies.

Common nutrients used in IV vitamin therapy include:

Dr. Sarti also includes the antioxidant glutathione in some of his IV solutions. This antioxidant not only detoxifies your organs and liver, but it also supports your metabolic and cellular processes.

Preparing for cold and flu season

IV vitamin therapy is a simple and relaxing experience that takes between 30-60 minutes at the Vitality Institute of Agoura. During your treatment, Dr. Sarti mixes your solution and inserts an IV into your arm or hand. As the vitamin mix enters your body, you can simply relax and enjoy the experience. After your infusion, you can return to normal activity.

Most men and women experience an increased need to urinate after treatment, but this passes quickly. Over the following days, you can expect to see several benefits from your infusion, including improved energy levels and enhanced focus. The vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants from your treatment typically remain in your system and help maintain healthy levels of nutrients for 2-3 weeks.


Based on your consultation and overall health, Dr. Sarti can work with you to develop the best IV vitamin therapy strategy to support your immune system throughout the entire cold and flu season.
