Weight loss IV infusions are designed to help you shift stubborn pounds, burn fat and achieve the healthy weight you desire. But how effective are they? And are they too good to be true?

Infusion therapy for weight loss
Infusion therapy for weight loss can be extremely effective when combined with a healthy diet and regular exercise. It isn’t a magical cure-all that can substitute diet and exercise, rather, it’s a fantastic addition to a balanced lifestyle.
So how does it work?
Weight loss IV therapy fills your body with essential vitamins and minerals, including NAD+, and has the ability to enhance your body’s ability to burn fat, maximise energy expenditure and improve health in a number of ways.
A weight loss IV helps to:
- Boost your metabolism
- Increase energy
- Reduce recovery time
- Improve athletic performance
- Enhance muscle growth
- Relieve mental cravings
All of these benefits combine to aid you in your weightloss journey making it that much easier to lose the weight, and crucially, keep it off.
Sleep, stress & weight loss
If you’ve been struggling to lose weight, sleep and stress may be playing a role.
When you’re stressed, the body releases a hormone called cortisol. Cortisol stimulates your fat and carbohydrate metabolism, creating a surge of energy in your body. While this process is essential for survival situations, it also increases your appetite. Additionally, elevated cortisol levels can cause cravings for sweet, fatty and salty foods.
But even if you aren't eating foods high in fat and sugar, cortisol also slows down your metabolism, making it difficult to lose weight.
Research has shown that when you’re stressed, you burn fewer calories and store more fat within the body.
It’s been well established that lack of sleep is a risk factor for weight gain and research has shown that people tend to eat 300 extra calories per day when sleep-deprived. One of the reasons is due to the hormones leptin and ghrelin. Both of these hormones are responsible for our perceived levels of hunger and are known to become disrupted in sleep deprived people.
Our IV therapy at NADclinic can help reduce chronic levels and sleep issues to help bring your hormone levels back in balance which can aid you in your weight loss journey. If you’re struggling to lose those extra pounds and feel like diet and exercise just aren’t enough, contact us to find out more about how a weight loss IV infusion can be beneficial to you.
