Radiance & Rejuvenation

Your skin is the largest organ of your body, and one of its key jobs is to repel the constant rain of chemicals, radiation, and biological agents from the environment. That’s why you need inside-out protection for optimal skin health. And that’s why we created the Radiance & Rejuvenation IV infusion.

When it comes to flawless skin, beauty truly is skin deep. You can pile on lotions and serums and “miracle” creams by the ton, but at the end of the day, the key to truly penetrating and looking great starts with those developing layers deep down.

This vitamin IV drip has key nutrients known to boost both collagen and elastin production, which translates to healthier, more radiant skin. In addition to collagen-boosting amino acids and vitamin C, you’ll get the skin support of glutathione, biotin, and additional B vitamins.

This combination of collagen builders and free radical fighters not only works to repair damaged skin from the inside out but restores your glow and protects the skin you’re in!

INGREDIENT LIST

B2 (Riboflavin)
Vitamin B2 (riboflavin) balances the adrenal system to enhance energy and stamina. It is also critical for body growth and red blood cell production. Plus, riboflavin has been shown to promote detoxification, support vision, and ease headaches and migraines.

Riboflavin deficiency is often marked by cracks around the side of the mouth, a purplish-red or magenta tongue and vertical cracks on the lips.
B3 (Niacinamide)
Niacinamide is a form of vitamin B3 or niacin. Niacin is critical for energy, healthy nerves and skin, and the metabolism of carbohydrates, proteins, and fats. It also supports healthy cholesterol and triglycerides levels.

Niacinamide specifically has been shown to support blood sugar levels and joint health.

Niacin deficiency can lead to a disease called pellagra, which is characterized by diarrhea, dermatitis, dementia, lesions on the lower neck, hyperpigmentation, thickening of the skin, inflammation of the mouth and tongue, amnesia, delirium, and eventually death.

Mild niacin deficiency manifests as a slowing of the metabolism, decreased tolerance to cold, irritability, poor concentration, anxiety, fatigue, restlessness, apathy, and depression.
B6 (Pyridoxine)
Vitamin B6 helps support healthy blood flow, maintains blood pressure, and even promotes optimum cholesterol levels. It also works to reduce homocysteine, a substance that increases your risk of heart attack and stroke.

B6 can also ease many PMS symptoms, reduce sugar cravings, boost energy, and strengthen the immune system.
B12 (Cobalamin)
Vitamin B12 is necessary for the production of healthy red blood cells. It also helps to maintain healthy homocysteine levels, and arterial function supports normal cholesterol levels and blood vessel dilation and is involved in DNA synthesis. It also plays a role in energy production.

Only bacteria are capable of synthesizing B12, and as such, it is found almost entirely in animal food products due to animal-bacteria symbiosis.
Biotin
Biotin is one of 13 vitamins that make up the B complex. Also known as B7 and vitamin H, biotin is involved in the metabolism of fats, carbohydrates, and protein, as well as the formation of fatty acids.

Biotin has also been shown to promote normal health of sweat glands, muscles, nerve tissue, bone marrow, blood cells, skin, and hair. Plus, it is essential for growth and well-being.

Long-term use of antibiotics, smoking, excessive alcohol consumption, some anticonvulsant medications, and eating large amounts of raw egg whites can lead to a biotin deficiency. Symptoms include dermatitis, hair loss, conjunctivitis, anemia, depression, lethargy, hallucinations, and numbness in the extremities.
Glutathione
Glutathione is a potent free radical scavenger composed of three amino acids (cysteine, glycine, and glutamic acid). It is a powerful antioxidant and is essential for healthy detoxification and coronary artery support.
L-Glycine
Glycine is a “conditional” amino acid that works to build protein in the body. It is also a component of the amino acid creatine - which provides energy to all the cells of your body - and glutathione, which is critical for detoxification and coronary artery health.
L-Lysine
Lysine is an essential amino acid, meaning it is not produced in the body. Lysine helps to build protein in the body and plays a critical role in the absorption of calcium. It also supports heart health, eases stress and anxiety, and helps treat cold sores.
L-Proline
Proline is a “conditional” amino acid made from the amino acid l-glutamate. In addition to producing proteins, proline is best known for its ability to boost collagen production. It also supports immune health.
Manganese
Manganese is a mineral that is essential for the proper formation and maintenance of bone, cartilage, and connective tissue. It contributes to the synthesis of proteins and genetic material and helps produce energy from foods. It also acts as an antioxidant and assists in normal blood clotting.

THE NITTY GRITTY

Looking your best is not just a vanity issue. When your skin is taut and hydrated, it means that your collagen production and circulation are all working and functioning well. This is important, as collagen production also supports joint health, while circulation is clearly tied to heart and cardiovascular health.

Key nutrients for supporting collagen production include vitamin C, manganese, and the amino acids proline and glycine.

Vitamin C is best known for its role in the synthesis of collagen.1 Collagen is the most abundant protein in the human body and is used as a structural component of blood vessels, tendons, ligaments, and bone. A deficiency of vitamin C leads to the scurvy, which is characterized by insufficient collagen production.

The mineral manganese is a little-known antioxidant that not only fights free radical damage but also supports collagen production. Specifically, manganese is needed by the enzyme prolidase, which supports the production of proline, a collagen-forming amino acid.2

In addition to proline, the amino acid glycine is another component of collagen. Like all amino acids, glycine is a precursor to protein. And while most proteins only contain a fraction of glycine, collagen consists of a whopping 35 percent glycine. Glycine and proline are needed to form collagen’s helix structure.3-4

Finally, the amino acid lysine is also a key component of collagen. Plus, lysine is widely regarded for treatment of unsightly cold sores. In a study published as far back as 1978, lysine appeared to suppress physical symptoms of the virus associated with cold sores.5 A later study supported these findings, with lysine supplementation reducing cold sore outbreaks by an average of 2.4 a year.6

B vitamins such as B6 and B12 are critical for the metabolism of these collagen-building amino acids. Plus, niacin (B3) support healthy circulation and has skin-specific benefits, including photo-protection.7-8

Similarly, the antioxidant glutathione not only provides additional free radical fighting protection but also helps maintain optimal cardiovascular function.9-10

Lastly, the B vitamins B2 (riboflavin) and biotin have incredible skin benefits overall. In addition to also supporting amino acid metabolism, B2 deficiency can take its toll on your skin, resulting in dermatitis and cracking of the skin around the mouth and vertical cracks on the lips.11

Biotin supports overall skin health but may be better known for promoting gorgeous hair and nails. On the skin front, biotin has been shown to treat cradle cap.12. Similarly, biotin use has also been associated with improving nail strength and hair quality and texture.13-14

Taking care of yourself is nothing to apologize for. Looking your best always starts with feeling your best.
