Many people know Vitamin A to help with vision in the form of beta carotene and other orange colored foods. It’s true! Vitamin A is a primary component of the protein in our eyes that helps us see.
Adequate Vitamin A intake can help prevent night blindness and stop progression of age-related vision changes. However, the benefits of Vitamin A don’t stop there. Vitamin A is also essential to immune function as well as cell growth and maintenance of important organs like the heart, lung, kidneys and skin. Vitamin A also has the ability to decrease the severity and mortality risk from infections such as measles.
How much Vitamin A do you get in your diet? In the United States, Vitamin A can be found as an additive in milk, cereals and processed goods.
Other sources of natural Vitamin A include liver, fish, eggs, green leafy vegetables, carrots, broccoli and sweet potatoes. But even if liver tops your list of favorite foods, you still may not be getting enough Vitamin A.
According to data from a National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey, the average daily intake of Vitamin A is lower than the Recommended Dietary Allowance (RDA) – meaning most people don’t eat enough foods high in Vitamin A to maintain optimal health. In addition, adequate intake declines each year as we get older – when we can use the benefits of Vitamin A the most!
Vitamin A deficiency can be hard to detect as levels in the blood don’t start to decline until almost completely depleted.
Some health conditions – such as gastrointestinal disease, immune problems and illnesses – can also lead to excessive loss of Vitamin A since the intestines are responsible for absorbing the vitamin.
For many people, Vitamin A is better absorbed by the body through IV drip where it can bypass the intestines and start working on essential functions right away.

Vitamin C is naturally present in some foods, but unlike animals, humans are unable to make Vitamin C on our own – we must eat foods with Vitamin C to obtain adequate levels.
Vitamin C is required for the production of collagen, making it important for skin health and appearance, as well as wound healing and maintenance of connective tissue like tendons and ligaments. As an antioxidant, Vitamin C limits damage caused by pollutants known as free radicals, and helps regenerate other antioxidants in the body. Research is examining Vitamin C’s role in preventing cancer and cardiovascular disease. Absorbed by the intestines, Vitamin C plays an important role in immune function, production of neurotransmitters and prevention of iron-deficiency anemia.
Have you ever taken Vitamin C for a cold? Studies show that taking Vitamin C to prevent illness can reduce your chance of getting sick by more than 50%! Taken with other immune-boosting supplements, Vitamin C can help your immune system bounce back and reduce the duration and severity of symptoms. Vitamin C has an anti-histamine action, making it great for allergy symptoms and inflammation as well. A great way to prepare or recover from illness is with an IV hydration treatment that includes Vitamin C for a quick boost.
In a typical American diet, fruits and vegetables like citrus, tomatoes and potatoes are the most common sources of Vitamin C. Heat destroys Vitamin C, so raw foods are the best way to consume these items. Because the dietary intake of Vitamin C can only raise blood levels to a limited amount, IV drips allow a higher concentration of Vitamin C to be reached for faster, more potent benefits. In fact, high dose IV Vitamin C has even been shown to be toxic to cancer cells and aid in survival.
When intake of Vitamin C is inadequate, symptoms such as fatigue, weakness, accelerated signs of aging and mood disturbances can occur. If you’re a smoker or around second-hand smoke, you’ll need even more Vitamin C to keep up. Oxidative stress caused by free radicals in tobacco products reduce blood levels of Vitamin C and weaken the immune system. Difficulty in concentration, sluggish mood and frequent illnesses can all be improved with IV therapy containing Vitamin C.

What is a MICB12 shot?
Also known as a lipotropic B shot, a MICB12 shot includes 4 components: Methionine, Inositol, Choline and Vitamin B12.
Methionine isn’t made by the body but is essential to optimal functioning. It’s an amino acid that helps reduce fat stores and lower cholesterol, and is also needed to produce another component of MICB12 known as choline.
Inositol helps move fats through the body and aids in a healthy liver that is able to excrete excess fat. By metabolizing fat and cholesterol, inositol helps redistribute fats and relocate cholesterol to the liver for processing.
Choline helps break down toxic byproducts of protein metabolism and allows fat to be excreted from the liver. By doing so, it helps the liver metabolize and detoxify properly as well as prevent fats from clogging arteries.
Vitamin B12 is needed for red blood cell production, neurological functioning and DNA synthesis. In the MICB12 shot, B12 helps methionine, inositol and choline perform their jobs and contributes to the liptropic effect of the injection. In addition, B12 is believed to elevate mood and energy levels, boost memory, improve bone, joint and eye health.
Who should get a MICB12 injection?
If you’re looking to boost your weight loss efforts, MICB12 is a great way to aid the body in the metabolism and removal of fats. Taken as a series of injections, MICB12 makes your exercise program more effective and helps you reach your health goals.
Revive Therapeutics has IV therapy and injection specialists ready to help you create a wellness plan that will have you feeling your best.

Magnesium is a mineral that helps regulate hundreds of biochemical reactions in the body. Humans require magnesium to produce energy, grow strong bones, synthesize DNA, and produce glutathione (a potent antioxidant). Magnesium also helps in nerve and muscle function, including the maintenance of a normal heart rhythm.
With all magnesium does, it’s easy to see why it’s so important to have adequate levels of magnesium in our body. Many people take magnesium supplements for one reason or another. Research has shown positive results in reducing anxiety and panic attacks, relieving migraine headaches, stopping acute asthma attacks, decreasing symptoms such as water retention and bloating, muscle spasms and back pain.
Early signs of magnesium deficiency can include stomach upset, nausea, fatigue and weakness. As the deficiency gets worse, muscle cramps, numbness and tingling, personality changes, mood disturbances and abnormal heart rhythms can occur.
Studies of people in the United States consistently report lower than recommended intake of magnesium in their diets – meaning many of us could benefit from more magnesium to help our bodies function at their best.
People with diabetes and pre-diabetes, heart problems, osteoporosis and GI diseases like Crohn’s and Celiac, asthma, and anxiety are at even higher risk for magnesium deficiency as these health conditions disrupt the body’s balance. Studies demonstrate low magnesium levels in people with these disease states compared to healthy adults.
While there are many types of magnesium supplements, IV magnesium is an effective way to provide the body with this mineral directly. An IV drip bypasses the intestines, making the magnesium readily available for use at maximum potency. If you think you’d benefit from a personalized IV therapy plan, visit Revive Therapeutics for a free consultation and learn if IV magnesium is right for you.
