What is IV Nutrition?

IV Nutrition is a way to get a high dose of amazing nutrients into a deficient body. By bypassing the stomach a higher dose of vitamins and minerals can be tolerated thus accelerating expected results.

Is IV Nutrition Safe?

Because the nutrients are all water-soluble there are no major safety or health concerns. 

If I have an underlying health condition can I still get an IV?

Yes in fact many health conditions can benefit from IV Nutrients.  There is only one rare condition where IV Vitamin C is contraindicated but the Doctor and the Nurse staff team will do a complete health history and exam to make sure you are a candidate for IV Nutrition.

​What is actually in the IV?

Although we have a variety of different IV’s on our menu the main IV called “The Nectar” is a modified Meyer’s cocktail containing a high amount of vitamin C, all the B vitamins, Calcium, Magnesium, and trace minerals.

​How will I feel after an IV?

Most feel amazing after an IV, occasionally people can experience light nausea or fatigue but this is almost always from not hydrating before and after an IV and or not eating.  Vitamin C can cause low blood sugar but don’t worry we provide water (Fiji water of course) and snacks.  We often will order food for those on a busy and tight schedule.

What ages can benefit from an IV?

All ages can benefit from IV nutrients, the better question is that person deficient?  If a person, regardless of age, is deficient then ONLY replacing those nutrients could help a body.

How long does an IV take?

Although some can get an IV in 15-20 minutes we like to make sure you take your time and not get too much of the “rush” at once.  We have you plan about an hour for your treatment.

How long will the nutrients last?

Studies have suggested that blood serum levels of the nutrients stay elevated for 4-5 days.  This is why we will recommend weekly IVs if you’re targeting a chronic issue or have been deficient for a long time.

Are the IV’s expensive?

Although cost is relative and the perspective of the buyer, the number of nutrients that are packed into each IV and the forms of the vitamins and minerals are the best known to man.  Bottomline a more concentrated form means bigger and faster results ultimately saving money in the long run.
