What Do Vitamins Do for Your Health?

If you’ve been feeling run down lately and can’t figure out why, it might be a nutrition deficiency. A nutrition deficiency causes problems with focus, energy, and even headaches. Fortunately, a vitamin infusion can help you battle aches, pains, headaches, and chronic fatigue.

Dr. Walid Elkhalili, Dr. Basel Batarseh, and our team of specialists at Apex Medical Professionals in Fair Lawn, New Jersey, provide energy-boosting vitamin infusions. We work closely with you to create personalized nutrition plans to restore your concentration and banish brain fog. 

Vitamin infusions work for almost anyone, from improving digestive conditions to relieving migraines. 

Why do I need vitamins?

Vitamins are essential for a functioning metabolism. Since your body can’t produce them by itself, you must take them in with food. 

If you eat a balanced diet, you may already get the recommended amount of vitamins. But older adults, busy young adults, and smokers should pay more attention to their nutritional needs to get adequate vitamins.

How do vitamins help?

It's impossible for your body to function properly if it doesn't absorb enough vitamins and nutrients. Perhaps you feel fatigued, have inflammation, or another chronic health condition that makes you feel tired and run down. Here’s how vitamins can help.

Get all your vitamins in your golden years

As you age, your energy requirement decreases, as does your appetite. Raw vegetables, difficult to chew, or dishes with considerable effort in preparation often disappear from the menu. Therefore, you may begin lacking in essential vitamins. 

Above all, vitamins A, C, D, B12, magnesium, iron, and calcium are missing. Taking medication regularly could also have an additional negative effect on the vitamin balance.

Say goodbye to stress

Emotional influences can result in an increased need for vitamins, as can physical stress, such as from acute infections or if you are in a postoperative phase. 

Every form of stress leads to a generally increased vitamin consumption and thus vitamin requirement. Optimal nutrition is an important prerequisite for reducing stress. 

Many problems like insomnia or chronic headaches resolve themselves once stress levels are under control. We believe vitamin infusions are an important component of self-care.

Support for smokers

While it’s critical that smokers kick the habit for their health, our compassionate providers at Apex‌ ‌Medical‌ ‌Professionals‌ understand that quitting is difficult, and you might need help in the meantime. 

Smokers need extra vitamins to defend the body from free radicals, which damage cells and lead to cancer. Proper nutrition and vitamin intake neutralize free radicals to minimize or prevent damage. 

Specifically, smokers need 35 mg more vitamin C every day than nonsmokers. A vitamin infusion treatment plan helps you feel better and keeps you on track to becoming a quitter. 

Assistance for alcohol consumption

Drinking alcohol regularly leads to a loss of appetite and a decrease in food intake. The reason is that alcohol causes a high-calorie intake, so eating sparingly helps compensate for it. 

Also, all forms of alcohol negatively impact vitamin absorption and utilization. Despite their positive effects on the nutrient balance in small quantities, wine and beer are also harmful in excess. 

Boost your mood and enhance your concentration

With winter on the horizon, now is the time to get a jumpstart on a healthy headspace and a pain-free physique. Call our offices today or make an appointment online to schedule a vitamin infusion treatment.
