Cold and Flu Season is Here: Boost Your Immunity with IV Therapy

Cold and Flu Season is Here: Boost Your Immunity with IV Therapy

Fall is here. The temperatures are dropping, the days are shortening, and with fall comes the arrival of cold and flu season. It generally starts in October and can continue into May — but are those inevitable sniffles, coughs, and days spent curled up in bed inevitable?

Maybe not. Intravenous (IV) vitamin therapy could be your secret to giving your immune system a fighting chance this cold and flu season. Daniel Moghadam, MD, and our team at Modern Aesthetica specialize in IV therapy to boost immunity and your overall wellness.

How IV vitamin therapy works

IV therapy is well-known for its use in hospitals, but it’s also a rapidly growing service in outpatient settings. It’s a popular option to enhance your well-being, from increasing hydration and energy to speeding recovery from workouts and red-eye flights.

When you get IV vitamin therapy, you get a drip of essential nutrients and vitamins directly into your bloodstream. IV therapy bypasses your digestive system — unlike oral vitamins and supplements, this method ensures that your body receives the full benefits of the nutrients.

The benefits of IV therapy for immunity

IV vitamin therapy offers a few major benefits when it comes to boosting your immune system, especially during cold and flu season.

Rapid absorption

Oral supplements must travel through your digestive system, and your body can’t absorb all the nutrients from the supplements. With IV vitamin therapy, your body quickly and fully absorbs the nutrients, and your immune system immediately gets the support it needs.

Customized formulas

At Modern Aesthetica, we offer a range of IV vitamin drips. Our immune boost drip is perfect for enhancing your body’s ability to fight off colds and the flu, and we take the time to understand your goals and customize your nutrient mix to your preferences.

Fewer side effects

IV therapy is generally safe and effective for most people. Infusions typically have minimal side effects, particularly compared with oral supplements that can cause gastrointestinal discomfort.

Increased energy

Along with boosting your immunity, IV therapy can increase your energy levels. Dark winter days might make it hard to stay active, but that extra energy boost can encourage you to get moving and engaged all year long.

Improved overall health

Last but not least, regular IV therapy sessions can support better overall health because you’re getting essential nutrients that your body may be lacking.

Key nutrients to boost your immunity this flu season

Our IV vitamin blends are customized for your needs, and a few of the most popular immune-boosting ingredients are:

B vitamins

B vitamins, including B6 and B12, are critical vitamins for overall health and immune function. They play a role in antibody production, helping your body respond effectively to infections. IV therapy can provide a quick and efficient way to replenish your B vitamin levels.

Vitamin C

Vitamin C is perhaps the most famous immune-boosting vitamin. It helps your body make white blood cells essential for fighting off infections. IV therapy can deliver high doses of vitamin C directly to your cells, ensuring that your immune system is well-equipped to ward off illnesses.

Vitamin D

Vitamin D helps regulate your immune system's response to infection and can reduce your risk of respiratory infections. During the winter months, when sunlight exposure is limited, IV therapy can give you a much-needed boost of vitamin D to keep your immune system in top shape.


Glutathione is an antioxidant that supports detoxification and immune support. It helps protect your cells from free radical damage and supports your immune system in its fight against infections. IV therapy can boost your glutathione levels and enhance your body’s ability to combat illness.


Zinc is a mineral that supports your immune system in several ways. It supports antibody production and helps white blood cells function properly, both essential for fighting infections. IV therapy infuses zinc directly into your cells, giving you an adequate supply to keep your immune system strong.

Don’t leave your immune system out in the col this cold and flu season.
