IV therapy is the intravenous administration of vitamins, electrolytes, nutrients, amino acids and antioxidant. This direct method of fluid intake bypasses the gastrointestinal tract, which traditionally limits the absorption rate of oral supplements. This not only hydrates you immediately, but maximizes the availability of the compounds to your body.

The IV Drips can be administered as a stand-alone treatment to help reach your wellness goals. They can also be paired with other treatments, maximizing the intensity of the results.

We suggest you do at least one IV Drip a month or more frequently depending of your treatment plan.

Active Ingredients

  • Vitamins: Vitamins help the body synthesize essential nutrients and allow it to work optimally. Both deficiencies and excess of vitamins can be a threat to the body, which is why your products include the highest dosage that is safe to optimize your health.

  • Electrolytes: Electrolytes are minerals that carry an electric charge when they enter our bloodstream, affecting fluid balance, blood pH, blood pressure, muscle tissue and brain cells. The primary electrolytes for our health are sodium, potassium, calcium, magnesium, phosphate and chloride.

  • Amino Acids: Amino Acids are organic compounds often referred to as building blocks of proteins. The body needs 20 amino acids, nine of which are essentials – which means our bodies don’t produce them on their own, so we need to source them from food or supplements. These are : Histidine, Isoleucine, Leucine, Lysine, Methionine, Phenylalanine, Threonine, Tryptophan and Valine.
