Q&A With Scarlett Metellus At VIV Infusions

Growing older is a privilege, let's not forget that! If we are lucky enough to do so, it means we are alive, and that in itself should feel good!

BUT . . .

Positive vibes aside (!) getting older also has its unpleasant side effects. For women, menopause is a clear indication that our body is aging, and its manifestations can range from barely noticeable to downright awful. More generally speaking (ie, including men as well!), if our mirror doesn't always tell us how old we are, our body will remind us:  feeling lousy here, more tired there, lack of energy, aches . . . Are we having fun yet?  

Different options exist in order to help boost out energy, vitamins intake, or support our immune system.  One such option that has been gaining attention is infusion therapy. A few weeks ago, I met with business owner Scarlett Metellus. Scarlett is a family nurse practitioner and the founder of VIV Infusions, a company that provides IV Vitamin Infusion therapy and personalized weight loss solutions. Scarlett was more than happy to answer my questions.

Q: What are the superstar vitamins that our body needs more of as we age?

Scarlett: As we age, our bodies require specific nutrients to support overall health and well-being. Some of the superstar vitamins and compounds include Vitamin D, essential for bone health and immunity, especially important as its absorption may decrease with age. Vitamin B12 is crucial for energy production and nerve health, with potential declines in absorption as we age. Calcium is vital for maintaining bone health and muscle function. Magnesium supports muscle and nerve function and can aid in improving sleep quality. Antioxidants like Vitamin C and Gluthathione play a crucial role in combating oxidative stress and promoting skin health. Additionally, Nicotinamide Adenine Dinucleotide (NAD) has gained attention for its role in cellular energy production and DNA repair, making it an emerging superstar in the field of aging and overall cellular health.

Q: Infusions vs supplements - what's the difference / How does Viv infusions work?

Scarlett: IV (Intravenous) infusions deliver vitamins, minerals, and fluids directly into the bloodstream. This method ensures maximum absorption and faster effects, making it suitable for people with absorption issues or seeking immediate results. Supplements like oral pills, capsules, or powders that you ingest, they must pass through the digestive system, which can result in reduced absorption and slower effects compared to IV infusions.

Q: How many different treatments do you offer?

Scarlett: We offer a wide variety of treatments at our IV hydration spa, catering to our clients' individual goals and preferences. Our menu includes options such as hydration, energy boosters, immune support, detoxification, beauty-enhancing cocktails, and more. What sets us apart is the flexibility to customize treatments. Clients have the freedom to build their own drip, tailoring it to their specific needs and desires.

Q: What is the most popular treatment people come to you for?

Scarlett: Our most popular drip is the "Myer Cocktail Elite." This exclusive blend is a refined version of the original Myer's Cocktail created by Dr. John Myers in the 1950s. Our Elite version is enhanced with additional key ingredients, including Glutathione, essential minerals, and Vitamin B5, on top of the classic B12, Magnesium, Calcium, B-Complex, Vitamin C, and Zinc. This comprehensive cocktail is sought after for its ability to provide a superior blend of vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants to support overall wellness, energy levels, and vitality
