How to Balance Hormone Levels with IV Therapy

Hormones play many essential roles within the body. Keeping them in balance is crucial to maintaining your mood, energy levels, metabolism, blood sugar, and sexual function, among other aspects of your health. 

IV therapy can help keep your hormone levels in balance. Read on to learn more!

What Are The Symptoms of a Hormonal Imbalance?

First off, let’s explore the possible signs and symptoms of a hormonal imbalance, which include:

  • Mood swings
  • Anxiety 
  • Rapid or slow heartbeat
  • Fatigue
  • Gastrointestinal discomfort, such as gas, constipation, or diarrhea
  • Dry skin and hair
  • Unexplained weight gain or loss
  • Intolerance to heat or cold
  • Extreme thirst 
  • Skin tags

These symptoms can vary depending on the hormone that’s out of balance. For instance, imbalances in male or female sex hormones can lead to low libido and hair loss. 

How Does IV Therapy Support Hormonal Balance?

Your body needs many different nutrients to produce hormones. By delivering a potent dose of vitamins and minerals to the bloodstream, IV therapy can help you achieve optimal levels of various nutrients for hormonal balance, including:

Vitamin B12

Vitamin B12 encourages hormonal balance by supporting the production of serotonin, a “feel-good” neurotransmitter. It also breaks down estrogen so that it can be removed from the body, which can help women maintain hormonal balance. 

Vitamin D

Vitamin D impacts the parathyroid gland, which produces parathyroid hormone. This hormone regulates calcium levels in the blood. Additionally, vitamin D deficiency has been linked to problems with insulin secretion and insulin resistance. Insulin is an important hormone that helps convert food into energy and regulates blood glucose levels. 

Vitamin C

Vitamin C supports the health of your adrenal glands. It can also help regulate hormones including cortisol, adrenaline, estrogen, and testosterone.
