Alpha lipoic acid (ALA) is a naturally occurring fat and water-soluble antioxidant, which plays a significant role in several metabolic processes in the body. It is considered a “universal antioxidant” since it demonstrates antioxidant function as well as contributes in the production of other important antioxidants such as glutathione and several vitamins. ALA is essential for cell metabolism through its effects on mitochondria (power sources of cells) and cellular energy production. Because ALA can pass easily into the brain, it may help protect the brain and nerve tissue. Researchers are investigating it as a potential treatment for stroke and other brain problems involving free radical damage, such as dementia. Studies also support that ALA helps lower blood sugar levels. It improves insulin sensitivity and lowers blood sugar, helping diabetics by aiding in damaged nerves and arteries. Its ability to eliminate free radicals may help people with diabetic peripheral neuropathy, who have pain, burning, itching, tingling, and numbness in arms and legs from nerve damage.
IV therapy allows much higher doses of ALA to be administered, as opposed to oral administration, and research has found that higher doses seem to have an anti-cancer effect.
Increases energy levels, stamina and supports optimal wellness.
Choose this IV if you are feeling fatigued and looking for a potent boost. Our instant Energy IV has all the great components of our Standard IV, with the additions of NADH, Ribose, Myoden (Adenosine), and DMG. These components take the already energy supportive IV and makes it a superior metabolic mix. This is a great selection if you have to put in extra hours on the job, suffering from energy loss, or just looking for a metabolic boost.This IV can be used as a single use for a “pick me up”, or in a series of 6-8 IVs to help boost metabolism for periods of athletic training, weight loss or any need for improved metabolic output. We add B-complex vitamins because of their need to produce energy from carbohydrates. More aggressive exercise may have higher requirements for some of the B vitamins, including vitamins B2, B6, and B5, athletic performance be affected if these needs are not met. With the B complex and the addition of the other highlighted ingredients makes this an excellent combination for maximal physical output.
This intravenous therapy is a strong blend of vitamins and antioxidants that support strong cognition and healthy aging. This IV should be used in a in a series of ten IV’s to help support the repair mechanism in the body while strengthening brain function, bones, connective tissue and energy. Age adjusted telomere length is the best method to assess biological age using structural analysis of chromosomal age change in the telomere. Telomeres are the little caps on the end of the chromosomes that carry our DNA. Many think of them as the tips of the shoelaces that keep everything from unraveling. Telomeres get shorter with age and several other environmental and lifestyle influences can speed up telomere shortening, speeding up the aging process. Therapies directed at slowing the loss of telomere length may slow aging and age-related diseases.
Glutathione is the body’s most powerful natural antioxidant and is found in every cell in the body. Glutathione is a tri-peptide (composed of three amino acids, Glutamic Acid, Cysteine, and Glycine) that bolsters the immune system and also helps neutralize damaging free radicals. Antioxidants can even help your body repair free radical damage caused by such things as stress, radiation, infections, drugs, medications, malnutrition, and aging.Animal and laboratory studies have demonstrated that glutathione has the potential to fight almost any disease, particularly those associated with aging, since free radical damage is the cause of many of the diseases of old age. Some of the best studies done on glutathione have been conducted in cancer. One study involved women with ovarian cancer who were being treated with chemotherapy. Some of the women were also treated with intravenous glutathione. Those given the glutathione not only had fewer side effects from the chemotherapy but also had better overall survival rates.The Glutathione stores decrease as we age and with exposure to drugs, environmental toxins, Cigarette smoke, and poor diets. When a deficiency in Glutathione develops, oral supplements do not offer an answer because the absorption in the gut is extremely poor. Injection or Intravenous administration is really the gold standard to really maximize the antioxidant effects of Glutathione
Immune Booster IV Therapy
Boosts immune function to prevent and speed recovery from illness.
Ideal at the onset of a cold or flu and an essential IV when preparing for travel. Our Immune Booster IV uses the combination of our Complete™ Nutrient formula with the addition of Taurine, Dimethylglycine (DMG), Zinc and Lysine. With these additions, this is also a great choice for general nutritional supplementation and immune system optimization during the cold season. It has important B vitamins and lipotropics for a metabolic boost. Also, if you suffer from aphthous ulcers or cold sores, this will aid in the reduction of outbreaks. The B vitamin group helps support the immune system, while Thiamine (vitamin B1) and Pantothenic acid (vitamin B5) have specifically been shown to play a role in wound healing.
Supercharged Meyer’s Cocktail IV
Our Super Charged Myers’ IV is based off the well-known original Myers’ Cocktail, but we have added much higher doses of nutrients. This IV contains several high dose vitamins, minerals, amino acids and antioxidants that are great for general nutritional supplementation, as well as an aide in the treatment of chronic illnesses. John Myer, MD was a well- known doctor from Boston that is one of the pioneers of Nutritional IV therapies and researched outcomes using many of the ingredients in our standard IV. His research found medical benefits for so many different conditions that his work has continued past his death in 1984. We also use our Supercharged IV in the treatment and support of depression, drug detox, inflammatory conditions, chronic syndromes, athletic training, and cardiovascular disease.
This is a high concentration of Vitamin C that is designed to boost the immune system through it’s antioxidant function.Vitamin C, also known as ascorbic acid, is a water-soluble vitamin. Unlike most mammals and other animals, humans do not have the ability to make their own vitamin C. Therefore, we must obtain vitamin C through our diet. Vitamin C is required for the synthesis of collagen, an important structural component of blood vessels, tendons, ligaments, and bone. Vitamin C also plays an important role in the synthesis of Neurotransmitters, which are critical for brain function. In addition, vitamin C is involved in the process of transporting fat into cellular organelles called mitochondria, where the fat is converted to energy. Vitamin C is also a highly effective antioxidant and in small amounts can effectively protect important cells from free radical damage.
With the current obesity epidemic we are excited for the weight loss IV series. This is not a magical IV drip that will burn away fat, but rather an adjuvant to a healthy diet and exercise regimen. The IV ingredients were selected for their role in the fat burning process (lypolysis), metabolism, and food cravings. This combination will help keep the energy up during the detox phase of our Carb Revolution Diet, while also aiding in weight reduction and appetite suppression throughout the remaining phases. We recommend our Weight Loss IV to any patient beginning a diet, maintaining weight goals, or those who are trying to lose weight but having trouble with a plateau.
The Wellness IV is comparable to the well-known Myers’ Cocktail, and has multiple uses. This IV contains a balance of vitamins, minerals, and amino acids that are great for general nutritional supplementation for all. John Myer, MD was a well known doctor from Boston that is one of the pioneers of Nutritional IV therapies and researched outcomes using many of the ingredients in our standard IV.His research found medical benefits for so many different conditions that his work has continued past his death in 1984. Most Infusion use a variation of the Myers’ IV in their clinics. This is a great choice for maintenance therapy, but has shown benefit for a multitude of ailments.
