and how Vitamin IV infusion therapy can help turn your health around
In an era when misinformation has become a buzzword, one of the greatest offenders is the food industry. Increased centralization, with industry whales swallowing up smaller fish, has driven food producers to focus on cost reduction for food production and distribution, with little consideration for the health and wellbeing of consumers. Our foods are full of chemicals, fillers and processed sugars that prolong shelf life while reducing human life.
Foods labeled and marketed as “healthy” often have detrimental health consequences, reducing our productivity and longevity, and imposing a burden on society. In some instances, food manufacturers deliberately set out to deceive their consumers; in other cases, agricultural practices contaminate otherwise healthy foods before they ever make it to producers. And less often, well-meaning food producers are misguided by flawed or insufficient research that results in adverse health effects.
In any case, humanity is facing a health crisis driven by obesity and malnutrition, making us fat, sick and tired, and dramatically reducing our longevity and quality of life. Learn about some of the food industry’s biggest nutrition lies, and steps you can take to improve your nutrition and optimize your health.
5 Nutrition Lies that Harm Your Health and Shorten Your Life
1. A well-planned vegan diet can meet all your nutrient needs
The truth is that vegan diets are inherently deficient in five vital nutrients:
- Vitamin B12 — This vitamin is essential for the formation of red blood cells; the manufacture of DNA; development, myelination, and function of the central nervous system; and as a cofactor for two enzymes involved in a plethora of metabolic processes. Symptoms of B12 deficiency include chronic fatigue, lack of energy, muscle weakness, and cognitive and psychological problems. Regular B12 injections can help you avoid B12 deficiency and give you an immediate energy boost.
- Calcium — Most people think of calcium in terms of bone density, but calcium plays other vital roles in human health, including muscle contraction, heart rhythms, neural messaging, circulation and hormone production. Symptoms of calcium deficiency include cramping, muscle spasms, seizures, tremors and bone loss.
- Iodine — Your body needs iodine to make thyroid hormones that regulate metabolism and play key roles in many biochemical reactions, including protein synthesis and enzymatic activity. Iodine is essential for skeletal and neural development in fetuses and infants. Iodine deficiency can cause thyroid disease, chronic fatigue, weight gain, dry skin and low heart rate.
- Iron — Your body needs iron to make hemoglobin, an essential protein in red blood cells that carries oxygen throughout your body. Symptoms of iron deficiency include extreme fatigue and weakness, brittle hair and nails, racing heartbeat and shortness of breath. Over time, reduced circulating oxygen can lead to cell death and heart failure.
- Niacin — Also known as Vitamin B3, niacin is a precursor to NAD, a vital coenzyme essential to every cell. NAD boosts energy, supports DNA, fights aging and combats cancer and other diseases. Niacin is found mostly in meats, fish, poultry and eggs. You can boost NAD levels with NAD IV therapy.
2. Soy is a good alternative protein source
Soy products are derived from soybeans, which are legumes. Soy is not considered a complete protein, since it lacks the amino acid methionine. Most soy is genetically modified (GMO) and may cross-react with gluten, causing inflammation and digestive distress. Soy has endocrine disrupting compounds (EDCs) that are thought to negatively affect reproductive health. To get all the amino acids you need to make complete proteins for optimal health, try amino acid IV therapy.
3. Red meat raises cholesterol levels and promotes arterial plaque
Red meat has been demonized for decades as a dietary risk for heart disease, yet there is zero evidence linking red meat and/or saturated fat to heart and arterial disease. In fact, there is a growing body of evidence linking glucose and type II diabetes to coronary artery disease, where plaque accumulates on arterial walls, inhibiting their ability to constrict and dilate, and blocking blood flow. Over time, clogged arteries can lead to hypertension, congestive heart failure, stroke and heart attack. Plaquex is an FDA-approved compound delivered via IV infusion that has been proven to reduce deposits of arterial plaque and restore healthy blood vessels.
4. Drinking lots of water is enough to stay hydrated
Your body is made up of 60-80 percent water, and your brain and heart are both about 75% water. Even your bones hold about 30% water. Obviously, staying hydrated is key to robust health. But drinking water alone is not enough to stay fully hydrated — your body needs electrolytes in order for your heart, brain and central nervous system to function. Drinking too much water can dilute your body’s electrolytes, causing a life-threatening condition known as hyponatremia. To get the right balance of fluids and electrolytes, try IV hydration therapy.
5. Low-fat diets help you lose weight
This nutrition myth became popular in the 1980s, causing major shifts in dietary practices, away from animal-based foods containing saturated fats, and favoring grain-based foods and seed oils. Decades later, we see the disastrous results of this pseudoscience as global obesity and the incidence of diabetes continues to rise. A high carbohydrate diet and the use of seed oils causes systemic inflammation, a precursor to metabolic disease, and seed oils can cause toxins to accumulate in your body. To lose weight, start by reducing your carbohydrate intake, use plant-derived oils like olive, avocado and coconut oil, and get weight loss support from B12-MIC injections.
How Vitamin IV Infusion Therapy and Injections Can Help Improve Your Health
For most people, modern lifestyles make it nearly impossible to get all the nutrients you need from diet alone. Add to that dietary restrictions that exclude certain foods, and modern agricultural practices that deplete foods of nutrients, and your chances of meeting all your nutritional needs are slim. Vitamin IV infusion therapy and nutrient injection therapy provide a convenient way to supplement your diet, to ensure you get all the nutrients you need to feel your best.
Vitamin IV drip benefits help to:
- Boost nutrition efficiency
- Bypass the human digestive system
- Deliver full-potency nutrients directly to the bloodstream
- Take the guesswork out of nutrition
- Enhance health and improve performance
- Combat aging

Without proper nutrition, your body is doomed to poor health that worsens over time. If you want to look, feel and perform your best, now and in the years to come, you need to take harmful foods and substances out of your diet and replace them with nutrient-dense natural foods and high-potency supplements.
Unless you eat a broad spectrum of fruits, vegetables and animal products, you probably have some level of nutrient deficiency. Oral supplements are often not fully broken down in the GI tract, where they lose much of their potency. The best way to get the most benefits from nutrition supplements is delivery via IV and injection therapy, to ensure maximum potency and absorption.
