IV Infusions Q & A

What are IV infusions?

Intravenous or IV infusions are a quick and effective treatment designed to ensure your body is getting the vitamins, minerals, and nutrients it needs. Even if you make a dedicated effort to eat right, some of the nutrients in your food are lost in digestion. The same goes for vitamins you take orally. With IV infusion therapy, however, vitamins, minerals, and nutrients can be sent directly into your bloodstream so your body can reap their full benefits.

Am I a candidate for IV infusions?

IV infusions are for any person who feels their health could use a boost. It’s a powerful restorative treatment that can help you combat a number of issues, including:

  • Stress

  • Vitamin and mineral deficiencies, including low iron
  • Digestion problems
  • Asthma
  • Allergies
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Neuropathy
  • Cancer pain
  • Weight loss challenges
  • Hangovers

Similarly, athletes choose this treatment before events to support their best performance and after events to support recovery. 

What type of IV infusion is right for me?

Not all IV infusion treatments are the same. Some people might need high doses of iron, while others want a blend designed to help them banish work stress and perform excellently in their upcoming presentation.
