IV VITAMIN INFUSION THERAPY
IV infusion therapy commonly includes vitamins (vitamins C, B1, B6, B12), minerals (calcium, magnesium), co-enzymes (NAD+), and antioxidants (glutathione). IV therapy has been used for decades to help improve issues such as fatigue, inflammation, dehydration from colds and flu, decreased immunity, nutritional deficiencies, post-exercise recovery, age-related muscle and joint pain, and many other benefits.
Most infusions can be completed in less than 45 minutes, and you don’t need to do anything other than sit back and relax. Here are a few recommendations prior to your visit:
- The infused vitamins and minerals are concentrated, and can be dehydrating at the cellular level. Your body will be more responsive if you are hydrated prior to your infusion.
- A protein snack before or during your visit can help support your metabolism during your high-nutrient infusion.
- Wear comfortable clothes. It would be wise to wear a short sleeve top or sleeves that can be rolled up above the elbow, along with comfortable pants and socks. If needed, we have cozy blankets for you to stay warm.
- Bring a tablet, book, or music. Most infusions take approximately 30 minutes, but NAD+ may take up to 2 hours.
Van Health offers different IV therapies for different goals or symptoms:
□ MYERS’ COCKTAIL – This infusion has long been used as a general “health and wellness” therapy, and
offers benefits such as improving fatigue, age-related muscle and joint pain, sleep, as well as reducing
inflammation and allergies
□ IMMUNE BOOSTER — Designed to help strengthen immune system protection, decrease risk of colds and
flu, and stimulate faster response and recovery
□ ENERGY BOOSTER — Loaded with amino acids and B complex vitamins, this infusion helps to improve energy
and endurance without the side effects of stimulants or high-caffeine energy drinks
□ METABOLIC BOOSTER — This customized blend of nutrients contains both carbohydrate- and fat-burning
vitamins along with L-carnitine, which helps stimulate body fat metabolism and improve metabolic
□ GLUTATHIONE BOOSTER — Glutathione is an extremely powerful antioxidant and anti-inflammatory
protein. This infusion helps prevent the production of free radicals, which then helps to protect DNA
integrity, immune response, rapid healing, liver and brain protection, and other health benefits
□ NAD+ BOOSTER – NAD+ (nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide) is a potent cellular enzyme called the “anti-aging”
protein. Research has shown that increasing NAD+ levels can increase energy and stamina, improve brain
function and cognition, boost metabolism, improve sleep, and reduce inflammation
Once your infusion is completed, the IV site will be covered with a small pressure dressing (please leave in place for 30 minutes). Afterwards, you can resume all normal activities.
IV infusion frequency depends on your own personal needs and choice of IV therapy. our staff will review infusion schedule options — weekly, bi-weekly, or monthly — and design the right program for you.
