When it comes to boosting your immune system, healthy diets and supplements are one way to ensure you get all the nutrients. However, it is not always easy and may take a while to start seeing the results of a stronger immune system. IV drip therapy is an innovative and convenient way to get your vitamins and antioxidants directly to your cells.
How IV Drip Therapy works
IV Drip Therapy has been administered to patients for a while now, mostly to hydrate and replenish the body’s vitamins. Immune-boosting IV therapy helps prevent infections and gives the body what it needs to fight bacteria and viruses.
Vitamins and nutrients are administered intravenously by a small tube to the veins in a session that only takes minutes. The session does not hurt. It’s short, very flexible, and ensures a 100% absorption rate. The treatment can last anywhere from two to three weeks or after your nutrients stabilize.
Ingredients of the IV drip
What is inside your IV drip will depend on what you are trying to achieve with your health. To get the most out of your therapy, consult your doctor to discuss which package will best fit your needs. Most IV drips for boosting the immune system will contain some or all of the following ingredients.
Vitamin C is an excellent antioxidant, an essential vitamin that your body needs to remove excess free radicals that can cause cellular damage. It also maintains your immune system by producing white blood cells, protecting the body from infections and diseases.
B-Complex contains 8 different vitamins found in a wide variety of foods. They have a vital function in maintaining good health, including cardiovascular support, helping your body convert food into energy, and immune function.
Also known as the master antioxidant, comprising of three amino acids glutamine, glycine, and cysteine. This antioxidant detoxifies your body, reduces cell damage caused by free radicals, provides immune system support, and helps fight autoimmune diseases.
While not a vitamin, IV hydration is an essential ingredient to help boost your immunity. Hydration is important for preventive care or treatment for infections like cold or flu. Staying hydrated is required for the body’s cells to perform at optimum levels at all times.

Signs That You Need Immune-Boosting IV Drip Therapy
During the colder months, many people contract infectious diseases and find themselves not feeling well. Getting an immune-boosting IV therapy as a preventive measure during this time will help you avoid infections.
If you have noticed one or more of the signs below, it could be a sign that your immune system is weakened and needs to be taken care of.
Regular feelings of stress are normal for many as a response to a demanding lifestyle. However, when you experience a prolonged feeling of stress, it causes side effects on the body, weakening the immune system, which leads to health issues.
These are diseases in which the body’s immune system misfires and starts attacking its own healthy tissues. There are various types of autoimmune disorders. If you have one of these, consult your doctor before taking the immune-boosting IV therapy.
Lack of Sleep
A consistent lack of sleep may lead to a sleep disorder that makes it hard to fall asleep and will impact your whole body. A prolonged lack of sleep will affect your immune system and prevent it from functioning at its best.
When you are tired, you lack energy and continuously feel sleepy. All of these feelings may prevent you from doing your daily activities. If there is no apparent reason causing this fatigue, consult your doctor to discuss your treatment options, which may include immune IV drip therapy.
Risks and Side Effects
These therapies are mostly harmless. Like with any treatment, you may experience some minor side effects like a warm short-lived flushing sensation, increased thirst, and insomnia.
There is a small risk of infections as IV drips are in direct contact with your bloodstream. This risk can be prevented by consulting a licensed and experienced professional.
Tips to Prevent Illness
A weakened immune system makes you a target for diseases and infections, especially during the cold/flu season. If you find that you easily get sick or take too long to recover, some preventative measures you can take include :
- Consume a healthy diet full of vitamins and nutrients.
- Exercise regularly to move your body.
- Sleep well and aim for quality sleep each night.
- Follow proper hygiene habits for your body and surroundings.
- For seasonal illnesses like the flu, get vaccinated early.
- Ensure adequate nutrient and vitamin levels, which can be done through our Immune Support IV.
- Maintain hydration.
