Iron is a mineral that is part of hemoglobin which carries oxygen in blood. Iron helps produce red blood cells.

IV Vitamin Therapy delivers high doses of vitamins, minerals, and amino acids in customized combinations to help support a variety of concerns including sleep, immunity, hydration, and much more.

This is a blend of water-soluble vitamins and minerals administered by an intravenous drip. With this delivery mechanism, there is better absorption compared to any other form of nutrient delivery.
The standard Myers’ Cocktail consists of magnesium, calcium, vitamin B-5, vitamin B-6 (pyridoxine), vitamin B-12, vitamin B complex, and vitamin C. Vitamin C is an important antioxidant that stimulates the immune system and aids in fighting bacterial and viral infections.

Glutathione is a substance naturally produced by our cells from amino acids that are found mainly in fruits and vegetables. This hardworking molecule acts as a major antioxidant, free radical scavenger, and an essential component of liver detoxification. In addition to protecting cells against the destructive effects of free radicals and detoxifying harmful substances such as drugs and environmental pollutants, it has also been studied in the treatment of a number of serious medical conditions including Parkinson’s Disease, heart disease, kidney disease, HIV and cancer.
Unfortunately increasing your glutathione levels is not as easy as popping a supplement pill. Scientific studies have shown that it does not absorb well from the gut. To get around this problem, therapeutic doses of glutathione are administered intravenously. Intravenous infusion is currently the most powerful way to offer protection to the body with a tool that is quick, safe, and effective.
