IV Therapy, also known as intravenous therapy, is the administration of delivering nutrients and hydration directly into the bloodstream for immediate absorption and use by the body.

IV Therapy is the fastest way to deliver nutrients throughout the body because it bypasses the digestive system and goes directly into the organs, resulting in a 90-100% absorption rate (as opposed to only 20-50% possible orally).

With one-third of UK workers experiencing anxiety, depression or stress, it’s not a coincidence there is a growing need for preventative and therapeutic IV vitamin clinics, that help to boost energy levels and stimulate the immune system.

What Are IV Therapies Used For?

  • IV therapy is used for several purposes including:
  • Hangover relief
  • Athletic performance recovery
  • Immunity support
  • Cold and flu relief
  • Inflammation
  • Digestion issues
  • Exhaustion

Who Would Benefit From IV Therapy?

Originally, intravenous nutrients were used mainly in hospitals for patients who were dehydrated, nutrient-deficient or unable to take medications orally.
Nowadays, pretty healthy people can boost their wellness and energy levels from IV Vitamin Therapy.

The stress of modern living can lower your immune system and general well-being: IV Therapy can give that much-needed boost, making it a realistic and practical option.

While stress alone doesn’t cause us to catch a cold or a flu virus, it definitely weakens the immune system’s ability to respond to viruses, leaving us more vulnerable to infection and illness.
So, if you want to boost your immunity, replace lost fluids and electrolytes after a boozy night out or support recovery from high-performance athletics – IV Vitamin Therapy can help to restore your body’s nutrient levels to their optimal state.

Stress is the most common reason people come to us for treatment. The majority of our clients choose the Myers Cocktail IV and Immunity Booster IV treatments to help them feel energised and boost their immunity.

IV Push and IV Drip – 2 Main Types of IV Therapy

There are 2 main types of IV Therapy, known as IV Push and IV Drip.

The main differences are the duration of the treatment and the amount of injected fluids.

Both IV Push and IV Drip treatments allow for 90-100% vitamin absorption.

What Is An IV Drip?

An IV Drip is a type of intravenous treatment that is slowly infused into the bloodstream via a plastic catheter inserted into the vein.

To administer an IV Drip, a small plastic tube (catheter) is inserted into a vein using a needle that is then quickly removed once the plastic tube is advanced into the vein.

IV Drips are performed for 45-60 minutes and an average of 250ml of fluids are injected per session.

During a drip, clients can read, work, relax or even watch TV.

What Is an IV Push?

An IV Push is slowly administrated into a vein via a previously inserted plastic catheter.

IV Pushes are generally used for glutathione. These are pushed over a 2-minute period.

What Vitamin Cocktails Are Used in IV Therapy?

Commonly seen ingredients in IV vitamin therapy are Vitamin C, B vitamins, and magnesium.

IV vitamin drips may also contain amino acids and antioxidants, such as glutathione.

Vitamins infusions can contain a single vitamin — such as Vitamin C — or a cocktail of vitamins and minerals.

What Are The Most Common IV Vitamin Cocktail Drips?

Myers Cocktail IV – This drip consists of magnesium, B vitamins and vitamin C, and is purported to treat a wide range of medical conditions, including immunity and energy levels.

Hydration IV Drip – IV hydration therapy benefits those recovering from a loss of fluids through vomiting, diarrhoea or hangover, but also athletes wanting to maximise their performance.

Fat Burner – A drip that combines essential fluids, vitamins and minerals that have been found to lower your toxic load. Toxins are stored in fat cells, which makes it harder for you to lose weight.

Immunity Booster IV – A cocktail that includes powerful antioxidants, such as glutathione, cysteine and arginine, which helps to protect you from flu and other viruses.

What Are The Benefits of IV Therapy?

One of the main benefits of IV Therapy is fast, more effective results without gastrointestinal side effects, absorption issues or loss of potency.

The process allows the nutrients to go right into your bloodstream, bypassing the digestive system and allowing you to have more energy, think more clearly, and enjoy a better mood.

The benefits will differ depending on the condition treated, the protocol used, the overall health of the client, and how many treatments are done.

Some reported benefits include:

  • Stronger immunity (warding off a cold or flu)
  • Enhanced mood
  • Increased sports recovery time
  • More energy
  • Improved concentration and mental focus
  • Increased calmness and relaxation
  • Balanced blood sugar
  • Improved sleep patterns
  • Improved jet lag
  • Improved hangover
  • Reduced instances of migraines
  • Boosted fertility and hormonal imbalance
  • Improved complexion
  • Reduced signs of ageing
