Feeling low energy lately? Getting sick more often than usual? Feel like your body just isn’t recovering as well as it should from day to day?

A lot of these symptoms can be associated with a deficiency or dip in essential vitamins and nutrients.

There are many ways you can address those deficiencies or bolster your natural concentrations of essential nutrients, but one of the fastest and most direct ways to do so is intravenously, also known as IV drip therapy.

How does IV Therapy work?

IV therapy works by delivering a carefully formulated blend of vitamins, minerals, and other nutrients directly into the bloodstream through an intravenous drip. This method bypasses the digestive system, allowing for rapid absorption and immediate effectiveness.

As the nutrients are delivered directly to the cells and tissues that need them most, IV therapy can provide a quick and powerful boost to energy levels, immune function, athletic performance, and overall well-being.

That’s why they work so well acutely to alleviate symptoms — but also (and importantly) to prevent symptoms in the first place. When they’re used regularly, IVs can act as a natural aid to continually bolster your immunity, strength, resilience, energy, recovery, and more.

What makes IVs such an effective wellness tool is that each treatment can be customized with certain concentrations of key nutrients that target specific symptoms or goals.

  1. Low energy. Often due in part to nutritional deficiencies, fatigue and low energy levels can be improved with intentional hydration: A.K.A., a replenishment of the right minerals, vitamin C, and B vitamins.
  2. Poor mood. Similarly, mood is influenced by nutrient levels, and a high dose of B vitamins with other minerals can ease the mood swings and help with anxiety and stress.
  3. Weakened immune function. If you’re finding that you’re getting sick more often than usual or you’re coming down with something, an IV with a high dose of vitamin C and other nutrients can come to the rescue to bolster your immune system and help fight it off more quickly and effectively.
  4. Suboptimal athletic performance. Not feeling your greatest in the gym? Can’t perform as well as you want to or last as long in your workouts? Sometimes, issues with athletic performance, strength, and endurance can signify a dip in some of your essential nutrients, which an IV can help replenish. Similarly, an IV can provide branched-chain amino acids (BCAAs), which support muscle mass and reduce muscle damage.
  5. Slow recovery between workouts. If your body isn’t recovering properly in between workouts or after stressful periods of time, you may start to feel extra sore, a bit run-down, and overall less resilient. This may indicate that it’s time for a “post-game” mineral, vitamin, and amino acid boost to encourage your body’s natural recovery processes to speed up.
  6. Pre-surgery. Having surgery? Your body needs to be in tip-top shape. While necessary, surgeries are inherently a trauma to the body — so resilience is key to enduring that type of strain. A pre-surgical IV can help reinforce your body’s strength leading up to your procedure.
  7. Wounds and surgical recovery. If you’re on the other side of a surgery, an IV can enhance your recovery by providing proper post-surgery hydration to expel lingering anesthesia. Certain IVs can also encourage healthy wound or incision healing by fortifying your natural cellular healing responses and mechanisms.
