Why has IV micronutrient therapy become such a big deal in recent years? The answer is that more and more people are discovering that IV drip therapy is one of the easiest and safest methods to deliver nutrients directly into a nutrient-deficient body.

We know you’ve been told that eating enough fruit and veggies and taking your vitamins should keep you healthy. But some people have digestive absorption problems, and their bodies can’t get enough nutrients from foods and oral supplements. Other people are trying to recover from debilitating diseases that have drained their systems of life-supporting nutrients. And others just need a fast, easy boost to support their energy or immune system.

Therefore, no matter what their reason, IV micronutrient therapy is the solution!

What Your Body Needs

Your body requires a certain amount of vitamins and minerals to function correctly. These nutrients maintain your brain, skin, bones, muscles, nerves, etc. The nutrients needed in higher amounts are known as macronutrients, and the nutrients needed in smaller amounts are known as micronutrients. We’re talking about micronutrients here.

What Are Micronutrients?

Micronutrients play a significant role in your body’s metabolic activities. They support a diverse range of body functions, including

  • energy production
  • blood clotting
  • immune function
  • growth
  • bone health
  • enzyme production
  • fluid balance
  • hormone production
  • and many more

However, your body cannot produce these vitamins and minerals, so they must come from external sources. Sometimes these essential building blocks can be in short supply due to stress or illness, as we indicated. However, a deficiency in any of them can cause severe and even life-threatening conditions, including

  • visual impairment
  • mental retardation
  • decreased energy level
  • reduced mental clarity
  • overall capacity
  • anemia

So what can you do if your body can’t absorb enough micronutrients to function at its best? That’s where IV vitamin drip therapy comes in.

IV Therapy

Many people have discovered a substantial positive difference in the absorption of micronutrients via IV drip therapy compared to absorption through oral supplements.

That’s why, for decades, IV drip therapy has been used to address many ailments and conditions, including

  • brain fog
  • hangover and headache relief
  • chronic fatigue
  • cold and flu symptoms
  • weakened immune system
  • side effects of aging
  • average athletic performance and recovery

The Quick Run-Down on IV Drip Therapy

IV therapy uses an IV drip to deliver nutrients directly into your bloodstream. This means that 100% of the nutrients quickly get to where they need to go. An IV bag usually contains a base fluid of saline, plus nutrients like

  • potassium
  • sodium
  • B-vitamins (vitamins B-1, B-2, B-3, B-5, B-6, B-9, and B-12)
  • vitamin C
  • magnesium
  • glutathione
  • NAD+
  • Zinc

Some of the Key Players in IV Vitamin Drips

You may recognize some of these nutrients, while others may be new to you. Here are some of the key players in any IV cocktail.

Vitamin C

Vitamin C is an excellent antioxidant. Antioxidants are essential vitamins your body needs to remove excess free radicals that can cause cellular damage and speed up the aging process. Vitamin C is perfect for maintaining your immune system by producing white blood cells and protecting the body from infections and diseases.

B Vitamins

B vitamins include eight different vitamins found in a wide variety of foods. They play a vital function in maintaining good health, including cardiovascular and detoxification support, helping your body convert food into energy, and supporting brain and immune function.


Glutathione is known as the master antioxidant. It consists 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.

It powerfully detoxes many organs in the body and can increase energy, reduce brain fog, and support concentration.


Nicotinamide Adenine Dinucleotide (NAD+) is a naturally occurring coenzyme derived from vitamin B3 found in every cell of your body. It plays a critical role in regulating cellular metabolism and energy balance. In addition, current research has revealed a strong link between NAD+ levels in the body and how we age, mentally and physically. Moreover, NAD+ can

  • improve focus and mental clarity,
  • reduce inflammation and pain,
  • improve muscle recovery,
  • increase energy and metabolism, and
  • improve symptoms of depression, anxiety, and PTSD.

IV Hydration

While not a vitamin, IV hydration is an essential ingredient in IV micronutrient therapy. It keeps your body hydrated and boosts your immunity. Hydration is essential for preventive care or treating infections like cold or flu. Staying hydrated is required for the body’s cells to perform at optimum levels.
