The Collagen Drip Infusion

The Collagen Drip Infusion

Collagen is an important protein produced by your body that ensures you have healthy skin and connective tissues. As you age, collagen production slows down, and this ultimately leaves you with weaker connective tissue and reduced elasticity in your skin. When this happens, your joints become weak, and your skin is more susceptible to scarring and wrinkles.

Collagen supplements, however, can help supply your body with the protein to ensure you stay fit and have healthy skin.

The Collagen IV at OptiVein

Our collagen IV was formulated to give your body the key ingredients it needs to form both collagen and elastin. The IV includes amino acids, vitamins and minerals that all work together to help give your collagen production a healthy boost.

These nutrients are also important for building new skin and protecting your existing skin. While OptiVein’s Collagen Drip aims to leave your skin with a rejuvenated glow, it can also alleviate joint pain, strengthen cartilage and improve the health of your hair and nails too.

Our Collagen IV includes:

L-Proline
L-Proline, or proline, is a non-essential amino acid that is important for the formation of collagen in your body. The amino acid helps ensure that your tissues, joints, ligaments and skin stay strong and healthy. Proline is considered non-essential because your body can biosynthesise, or create, proline from other amino acids in your body. As a supplement, proline can be used to boost collagen production, strengthening ligaments, tissue and skin.
L-Lysine
L-Lysine, or lysine, is an essential amino acid that you usually get from the food you eat. The amino acid is important for muscle growth but can also help boost your collagen production too. Lysine can be found in foods such as meat, cheese and eggs. You can also take lysine as a supplement to maintain healthy skin and connective tissues.
Manganese
Manganese is a trace mineral that is important for the healthy functioning of many systems in your body. Though it is found in small amounts in your body, you also need to include this nutrient in the food you eat. Manganese can be found in tea, nuts, beans and leafy green vegetables but can be given intravenously or as an oral supplement. The nutrient is known to help improve bone health, regulate blood sugar levels, reduce inflammation and help keep the immune system healthy.
Vitamin C
Vitamin C is vital for a healthy body. The nutrient, also known as ascorbic acid, helps protect the cells in our bodies and supports the production of collagen, which helps wounds heal. Though vitamin C can be found in many foods like citrus fruit and vegetables, it cannot be produced by or stored in our bodies. The nutrient, however, can be absorbed by the body as a dietary supplement for a much-needed energy boost.
Zinc
Zinc is a trace mineral that plays a role in your skin, eye and heart health. The nutrient also has antioxidant qualities and is important for healthy immune function. Though zinc is found in our bodies naturally, supplements are often used to treat acne and stabiles blood sugar levels too. As an antioxidant, zinc can reduce inflammation in your body to help boost your immune system.
Glutathione
Glutathione is an antioxidant naturally produced by our bodies to help protect our cells from damage. It is essential for a healthy immune system as it works to build tissue and repair damaged cells in the body. Its production can be reduced in times of stress and anxiety. When given intravenously, glutathione can reduce the oxidative stress levels in our bodies. The antioxidant is also known to help manage diseases like asthma, multiple sclerosis, Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s disease and depression.
