Intravenous Nutritional Therapy

IV nutrient therapy is the most effective way of getting vitamins, minerals, and amino acids straight into the bloodstream. When given intravenously, the blood achieves concentrations not obtainable with taking them by mouth. There is 100% bio-availability to cells without the stomach upset, or absorption issues. 

Benefits of IV Nutrient Therapies:

  • Boost energy
  • Boost immunity and treat autoimmunity
  • Decrease pain and inflammation
  • Detoxification
  • Improve brain function and mental clarity
  • Relieve stress and anxiety
  • Cold and flu remedy
  • Support athletic performance and recovery
  • Hydration
  • Migraine Relief
  • Overall well being

Vitamin C and Immune Function

Vitamin C is an essential micronutrient for humans, with pleiotropic functions related to its ability to donate electrons. It is a potent antioxidant and a cofactor for a family of biosynthetic and gene regulatory enzymes. Vitamin C contributes to immune defense by supporting various cellular functions of both the innate and adaptive immune system. Vitamin C supports epithelial barrier function against pathogens and promotes the oxidant scavenging activity of the skin, thereby potentially protecting against environmental oxidative stress.


Clearly, adequate availability of glutathione is critical for maintaining health, protecting the body from toxins, and promoting longevity. Fortunately, there is much we can do to optimize glutathione levels: primarily decrease toxin exposure (including alcohol) and promote production with regular consumption of whey or NAC. I think we are just scratching the surface of the clinical benefits that can be achieved through enhancing intracellular and intramitochondrial glutathione.
