IV Nutrients

Magnesium is an important aid in calcium and mineral absorption, boosts energy, and contributes to overall bone and muscle health.  It has been shown to prevent and relieve migraine headaches, and help with maintaining nerve, heart, bone, and muscle function.  It boosts the immune system and assists with chronic pain control.  It also plays a role in regulation of blood sugar and blood pressure. 

Vitamin C is one of the most effective nutrients.  It is a powerful antioxidant that helps protect cells from free-radical damage, absorb iron, create collagen, and boost immunity. It also improves white blood cell function, and has a protective effect on brain function and memory.   In higher dosages, Vitamin C has pro-oxidant activity and can be used in combination therapies for sepsis, improvement in endothelial function, and cancer treatment.  Blood levels of 50 mg/dl lead to an antiviral effect. 

Calcium is an essential nutrient, and is the most abundant mineral in the body.  It is vital for bone health and in the prevention of osteoporosis, and is linked to a reduction in the risk of colon cancer, and improvement in  neural function.  It is also important for muscle function, the body’s blood clotting cascade, and cardiac function.

Selenium is a powerful antioxidant, fights oxidative stress and helps defend against chronic disease.  As an essential nutrient, it plays major role in metabolism, thyroid function and immunity. 

Zinc is a trace mineral important for a multitude of functions including energy production, alertness, mood and healthy brain function.  It boosts low immunity, is important in immune function, improves wound healing, and helps with impaired smell and taste.

NAC is the supplemental form of L-cysteine, an essential amino acid.  NAC is an antioxidant with numerous potential health benefits including enhanced performance and recovery.  NAC boosts levels of glutathione to help with the oxidative stress underlying most chronic diseases.  Also helps with mood disorders, sleep, infections and inflammation.

Thiamine is an essential water soluble vitamin, and enables the body to use carbohydrate as energy.  It is necessary for the growth, development and function of every cell in the body.  It acts as a coenzyme in oxidative decarboxylation, critical in metabolism.  Important for glucose metabolism and normal nerve function. 

Riboflavin is an essential vitamin that participates in many biological functions.  It plays a role in breaking down protein, fat and carbohydrates.  Vital role in maintaining the body’s energy supply and allowing oxygen to be used by the body.

Niacin is a crucial B vitamin, converted in the body to nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD).  NAD is required for human life and for normal mitochondrial function and production of metabolism-boosting ATP.  Also involved in elevating HDL cholesterol and lowering triglycerides.  Improves digestive system function.  Also improves brain fog, and has been linked to improving memory in people with Alzheimer’s disease.  Helps produce sex hormones and can improve blood flow to the genital area.

Vitamin B5 is a critical water soluble vitamin, helps to produce energy, and convert food into glucose.  Also important for healthy skin, hair, eyes and liver.  Helps to synthesize coenzyme A, and assist the body in using other vitamins.  Synthesizes steroid hormones and red blood cells.  Helps to maintain a healthy digestive system.  

Vitamin B6 is a critical water soluble vitamin that the body needs for over one hundred biological functions.  Important for normal brain function and development and for keeping the immune system and nervous system healthy.  Helps keep skin and blood cells healthy, and convert nutrients into energy, stabilize blood sugar, and boost metabolism.

Biotin is a Cofactor in the metabolism of fatty acids and amino acids. Important role in gluconeogenesis.  A deficiency leads to many health issues including alopecia, depression, lethargy, neuropathy.  Used to improve skin, hair and nail health.

Water soluble essential vitamin.  Plays a vital role in cellular metabolism and energy production.  Important for methylation and thus keeps homocysteine levels in check.  Crucial for fetal development, liver and kidney health, and immune function.  Essential for nucleic acid and amino acid biosynthesis.  Involved in synthesis of serotonin and dopamine important for mood regulation.

Wide array of positive biologic effects, boosts energy and red cell production. 

Helps DNA production, provides cardiovascular support, involved in energy metabolism.

Antioxidant that your body produces naturally.  The body uses CoQ10 for growth and maintenance.  Levels decrease with age.  Low levels associated with heart disease and patients taking cholesterol-lowering medications.  Necessary for people taking statins. Can improve symptoms of heart failure and reduce LDL cholesterol  levels in patients with diabetes.  Involved in energy production and linked with enhanced physical performance.

Essential amino acid, has been shown to enhance athletic performance and stimulate fat burning.  Benefits energy levels by transporting fatty acids into mitochondria where they are used as fuel.  Found in animal products, a deficiency can occur in vegans and vegatarians.  Also benefits brain function, prevents muscle damage, regulates blood sugar, increases athletic endurance.

Conditional amino acid (meaning the body can produce it on its own except during times of illness or stress) involved in nearly every aspect of health, from heart health to brain function.  The most abundant amino acid in skeletal muscle, immune cells, the retina, and the heart.  Linked to reduction in heart disease due to anti inflammatory effects.  May be helpful in neurodegenerative conditions such as Parkinson’s disease by its impact on mitochondria.  Also positive impact on metabolic syndrome by increasing insulin receptor sensitivity.  May boost athletic performance and endurance. 

Muscle-building, brain boosting conditional amino acid needed for normal muscle, cognitive and metabolic functions.  Helps break down and transport nutrients like glycogen and fat to be used for energy.  Found in high concentrations in skin, and the connective tissues found in the body’s joints, gastrointestinal tract, and muscle tissue.  Critical to collagen production, boosting mental performance and memory, protecting skin from signs of aging, and lowering inflammation and free radical damage by increasing glutathione production.

Essential amino acid used to make proteins and peptides.  Used by the body to make creatine.  Helps athletic performance and weight loss.  Responsible for producton of s-adenosylmethione (SAM-e).  Supports function of neurotransmitters like dopamine, serotonin and melatonin.  Involved in the growth of new blood vessels.  Helps with wound healing, allergies, liver damage, mood disorders. 

Chemical compound found in the body, consists of stereoisomers of glucose (sugar alcohol), broken down by thr body to be used as an energy source. Combined with AMP is considered “vitamin B8.”  Used in infertility and to treat PCOS, increases insulin activity, positive influence on appetite, may have anticancer effects

Powerful anti nausea and anti-emetic medication.  Can be given orally or IV.

Systemic non-steroidal anti inflammatory medication, used for pain relief.  Can be given IV or IM.
