IV Vitamin Drips: What's with the trend?

2 minute read | Posted by Dr. Tania Rivera on Feb 10, 2018 9:00:00 AM


An IV vitamin drip refers to the process of providing concentrated levels of vital nutrients directly into the bloodstream.  When nutrients like vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and amino acids are injected directly into the bloodstream, they bypass the digestive system and are pushed directly into cells where they can be more effectively utilized by the body.  

IV therapy has been used for decades in hospitals as a treatment option for conditions like dehydration, infections, or malabsorption disorders, among others.  Lately, in the US, there are more independent clinics and house call services popping up that aim to provide IV vitamin treatment outside of crowded hospitals.  

Why are people using IV drips?

The trend started when people were looking for a faster way to hydrate, for example after consuming alcohol.  One bag of IV fluid can be equal to drinking eight glasses of water.

People are now using IVs to help support their immune systems, boost energy levels, improve skin health, and to manage conditions like migraines, fibromyalgia, and chronic fatigue syndrome.

Depending on the drip selected, the treatment can take anywhere from 30 minutes to an hour.  

During that time, our members have access to receive IV drips in a beautiful setting with the comforts of home, including amenities like Netflix and wifi so you can stay connected (only if you want to!), and a private space to sit back and relax.

Convenience and Care Coordination

The appointment will be coordinated for you in advance and the IV will be tailor-made on your behalf.  You won't have to wait in a line on the day of your drip; just show up at your appointment time, and we will take care of the rest.
