What are nutrient IVs made of?
Nutrient IVs are similar to IVs you would find at your local hospital. Our IVs consist of vitamins, minerals, and amino acids, which are found in the body naturally. Adding these nutrients gives the body more of what your organs need to function properly.
How long does a session take?
Our nutrient IV’s take approximately 30-to-45 minutes for the drip to be fully administered.
How soon should I feel the effects?
Depending on your nutritional and hydration status, you may see dramatic effects after the first IV. Athletes who get IVs regularly will feel less dramatic effects as their body starts to obtain optimal hydration and nutritional balance.
What should I do after the treatment is completed?
After your session, you can go about your day as usual. There are no restrictions. We recommend that you exercise, meditate, eat healthy meals, stay hydrated, and get enough rest daily.
Are there any side effects during the IV process?
No major side effects are usually seen; however, athletes do experience some cooling of the arm and a vitamin taste in the mouth. Do not worry, as this is all normal.
Are there any potential reactions to receiving a nutrient IV while on other medications?
Negative reactions are slim to none, as this procedure is proven to be advantageous and safe. Either way, every athlete is monitored. If some discomfort begins, we will simply monitor you over time and stop if necessary. Most people respond favorably to the therapy, feeling energized and alert from the beginning.
Who should or shouldn’t do this?
If you retain fluids, have kidney problems, have a history of renal failure, or suffer from certain life-threatening health conditions, you should not engage in nutrient IV Therapy. We always recommend that you check with our primary care provider at our clinic if you’re unsure. However, anyone with a healthy history can safely obtain their benefits.
How frequently should I do IV therapy?
None of our IVs contain toxins that are found in medicine or pharmaceuticals, so no one experiences an overdose of any kind. If you are healthy, theoretically it is safe for daily use. Realistically, most athletes do not put such high demands on their bodies where they would need daily nutrient IV Therapy. Our most frequent dosage is a twice-weekly program. But you should tailor your IV Therapy to your lifestyle.
Is it an expensive treatment?
You can look through our different offerings here. Our pricing ranges from $20 injections to $399 diagnostic micronutrient testing with a licensed physician. From top to bottom, every treatment serves to improve your body’s performance and overall wellness.
Is this process painful?
Every athlete’s pain tolerance is different. Where some find needles to be relatively painless, others find it a bit painful. If you experience any level of pain, we have ways of making the process more comfortable. However, this procedure is in no way excruciating. We use a smaller needle than what is used in children’s hospitals.
