IV nutrient therapy helps with hydration, recharging your body, infusing anti-oxidants, regulating metabolism, improving skin, fortifying your immune system, and supplying necessary nutrients. IV therapies run between approximately half an hour to two hours.

This therapy goes above and beyond an ordinary vitamin B12 injection, meeting your unique needs.
Glutathione provided via an injection, push or IV enhances the body's most potent antioxidant. This antioxidant, consisting of three amino acids, is essential for your immune system.

How Does IV Therapy Work?
Intravenous therapy delivers vital nutrients directly to your bloodstream. This delivery method has increased in popularity over the last few years. IV therapy provides fast results and can help those managing certain medical conditions.
With its roots in the early 1980s, a healthcare provider delivers IV therapy after assessing your needs. Since each person's needs are unique, healthcare providers review the patient's situation and recommend which treatment will work the best. Many types of IV therapies are available, and an experienced biostation healthcare provider will review your needs and goals, helping to match you with the most beneficial IV therapy option.
Vitamins and micronutrients are typically absorbed into the body from food and drink. Some people may choose to take vitamin and supplement pills. Those routes for providing vitamins and micronutrients to the body have limitations. Nutrients from food, drink, and supplements go through the stomach and digestive tract, and many go through the liver before entering the bloodstream. In addition to the limitations of absorption, other factors like metabolism, age, genetic characteristics, and interactions with other consumed substances can also affect the benefits of orally ingested food, drink, and supplements.
Bypassing the oral route and providing vitamins and minerals intravenously eliminates loss and delay through the digestive system. Your body can quickly benefit from IV therapy with minimal loss compared to oral means.
What is in an IV Therapy Session?
Some ingredients are commonplace in IV treatments:
- Vitamin C helps protect against infection, boosting immunity and increasing energy levels.
- Vitamin B complex is a group of several B vitamins, including Thiamine and Riboflavin, needed for bodily function.
- Vitamin B12 and Folic acid are essential to red blood cell production, a lack of which can lead to anemia.
- Calcium wards off osteoporosis and promotes bone health.
- Glutathione is a crucial antioxidant.
IV infusions may contain numerous other vitamins and micronutrients at varying levels based on the patient's needs. Each infusion is tailored to the needs and goals of the patient.
There are four main types of IV therapy infusions that contain varying quantities of nutrients to target specific goals:
- Myers Cocktail. A classic blend developed by Dr. John Myers in the 1980s contains a mixture of vitamins, magnesium, zinc, glutathione, and saline solution.
- Immune-boosting IV therapy. Tailored to improve healing, boost immunity and reduce inflammation.
- Metabolism-boosting IV therapy. Helps with weight loss, metabolism rates, and energy levels.
- Athletic recovery IV therapy. Helps athletes replenish nutrients and reduce inflammation.
What Is Glutathione?
You may notice that the key antioxidant glutathione is part of several IV infusion treatments. This antioxidant is in every cell in your body in small quantities, protecting cells from damage, and is known for its anti-aging properties.
Glutathione helps the body detoxify through the liver and is especially important to those who have exposure to medicines, chemicals, alcohol, or other toxins. This antioxidant protects the liver itself and fights diseases in the liver. The body's most potent antioxidant provides immunity, protects cells, and helps with blood sugar regulation. Glutathione appears as an ingredient in several IV therapy treatments because it helps the body in many ways but can be depleted through aging, stress, toxin exposure, and insufficient nutrition. Genetics may also play a part in low glutathione levels.
Who Is a Good Candidate for IV therapy?
While vitamins and micronutrients are vital for everyone's health, some may derive special benefits from an IV infusion. Healthcare providers may recommend IV treatment for those recovering from an illness, experiencing low energy, struggling with mental health issues, or athletes preparing for a major event.
How Are IV Therapy Sessions Administered?
While IV sessions are typically done at a medical office, mobile delivery is an increasingly popular option. Administration requires skilled medical professionals who are experienced with detecting a vein, inserting an IV line, and ensuring the IV bag empties at a proper rate.
Healthcare providers will determine the ingredients, amount of each substance, and the frequency of appropriate IV therapy sessions for the patient. Medical professionals who administer the IV sessions will also watch for sensitivity, and any side effects as the infusion is delivered.
