IV Infusion Therapy

What is IV Therapy?

IV therapy, medically known as intravenous therapy, is the process of infusing vitamins and minerals directly into a person’s bloodstream. When you are feeling ill, the IV drip infuses vitamins and fluids into your bloodstream, quickly replenishing and hydrating your body. It is a much quicker way to get fluid, vitamins and minerals into your body than it is to consume it orally. 

IV therapy is a safe way to administer vitamins in minerals to those who are lacking in them. It is a great treatment option and has been proven to be very effective with patients, when administered by a professional healthcare provider.


What Are the Benefits of IV Therapy?

Being deficient in vitamins and minerals can have an impact on your mental and physical health. Having a sufficient amount of vitamins and minerals can have great benefits on your immune system, hormone production, and  your body's detoxification. Receiving an IV therapy infusion can help with the following:

  • Dehydration

  • Migraines

  • Fatigue

  • Weakened Immune System

  • Sports Recovery

  • Hangover Recovery

  • Sun Poisoning

What to Expect During Your IV Therapy Session

During your IV therapy session, we will insert a plastic catheter directly into your vein. The catheter is attached to a tube leading to a plastic IV bag that's filled with liquid, vitamins, and micronutrients. The intravenous route is the fastest way to deliver the vitamins and micronutrients throughout your body since they are directly introduced to your bloodstream and quickly distributed throughout your body.

Components of Vitamin and Mineral Infusions

Vitamin C

Studies have been performed that indicate several of the benefits of intravenous vitamin C. In the critically ill, vitamin C administered intravenously may help in the management of sepsis; it may also be of use in managing certain kinds of cancer. For individuals in good health, intravenous vitamins may serve to boost immunity and increase energy levels.

Vitamin B Complex

Several vitamins make up the B complex group of vitamins. Some of these vitamins are Vitamin B1 (Thiamine), Vitamin B2 (Riboflavin), Vitamin B3 (Niacinamide), Vitamin B5 (Dexpanthenol), and Pyridoxine (Vitamin B6). These vitamins play essential functions in the processes that place in the human body. 

Vitamin B12

This is also known as cyanocobalamin. It serves many purposes in the human body; however, its primary function is in the production of red blood cells. A deficiency of this vitamin may result in a condition known as macrocytic megaloblastic anemia. 

Folic Acid

This is also known as folate. Similar to cyanocobalamin, folic acid helps in the development of red blood cells. Its deficiency may also result in macrocytic megaloblastic anemia. 


Calcium is necessary for the development of strong and healthy bones. People who are lacking in calcium in their body may end up with a condition known as osteoporosis. 


All patients receive a liter (1000 ml) of Normal Saline included (no additional charge)
