Without a sufficient supply of vital substances, nothing works for us humans. These building materials, which are needed for all cell and organ functions, can be produced in part by the body itself. However, we mainly have to take them in through our food. Since Switzerland is basically not a vitamin-deficient country, most people are not threatened by a vitamin deficiency. Nevertheless, a deficiency of vital substances can occur if a person eats a one-sided diet or basically consumes too little food due to diets, eating disorders or illnesses. In such situations, then targeted infusions of selected vital substances can quickly improve or restore our health and general well-being.
These substances are summarized under the generic term vital substances
Among the best-known vital substances are the minerals and the so-called micronutrients, as well as the various vitamins. All vital substances fulfill important and vital tasks in the body in all metabolic processes. Vitamins we must supply ourselves from the outside through the regular consumption of fresh fruits and vegetables. Vitamins include:
- Vitamin A
- All B vitamins (B1, B2, B6, B12, folic acid, …)
- Vitamin C
- Vitamin E
- Vitamin K
- Vitamin D – to a certain extent, it has a special position, since it is largely formed by the body itself via solar radiation and is hardly absorbed through food. It acts more like a hormone in the body.
Minerals are, for example, sodium, calcium and magnesium. Trace elements such as selenium, zinc or even iron are, as the name suggests, only needed in very small doses, which, however, have a great effect.
In addition to micronutrients, there are also macronutrients. These include the fats, proteins and also the well-known carbohydrates. “Good” fats are, for example, the essential fatty acids, which have a particularly important function in the structure of the cells. Furthermore, amino acids (proteins) have an important function in this context. For the most part, the body can produce them itself. But the amino acids isoleucine, valine, methionine, leucine, tryptophan, lysine, phenylalanine and threonine we must take as so-called essential amino acids through food.
Effect of vital substances on the organism
If you feel weak and lacking in energy over a long period of time, a vitamin or mineral deficiency may be behind it. Vital substances not only fulfill a multitude of vital tasks in various metabolic processes, they can also help to prevent and heal diseases. We need vital substances to stay healthy in the long term, to feel fit and to maintain a powerful immune system. Also, the entire cardiovascular system benefits if we are sufficiently supplied with them.
Vital substances do not have only one task. Rather, they are everywhere in the body involved in various processes. Through the interaction of all nutrients we feel fit, active and healthy. Among other things, vital substances play an important role for:
- The immune system
- The stability of bones
- The nervous system
- The cellular metabolism
- Cardiovascular processes
- The health of hair, skin, and nails
- Blood formation
Why Vital Substance Infusions Are Used
There are various reasons for starting a vital substance therapy with vital substance infusions. Especially when the need is strongly increased by individual factors it can be useful to supplement additionally in this way. Infusions are used prophylactically, for example, to prevent infections. Many people get through the winter without catching a cold because an infusion with vital substances strengthens the immune system. Sometimes, however, infusions are also used to treat specific diseases that are associated with insufficient levels of vital substances. In addition, infusion therapy can be used to support the detoxification of the body. Beneficial and helpful is this therapy also in states of exhaustion with stress symptoms and a burn-out symptoms..
Infusions have various advantages over micronutrients in capsule or tablet form. Indeed, the latter are often low doses and can be partially less well absorbed by the body. Direct absorption via the blood therefore enables a better supply and the use of higher doses. The infusions act therapeutically excellent and can quickly correct severe deficiency symptoms..
A “building cure” with vital substances can increase physical and mental performance, increase concentration and improve memory. It supports the prevention of cancer and cardiovascular diseases and is also used after severe infections or in tumor diseases, among other things, to rebuild the body’s defenses. Basically, a vital substance therapy can therefore be worthwhile for all those who feel generally more powerful, fitter and healthier and want to ensure to be sufficiently supplied with the vital nutrients..
But also sick people benefit from vital substance infusions, which are administered in addition to the orally taken preparations. Vital substance therapy with infusions is also worth a try in the case of “longcovid syndrome“.
