IV Treatment 


IV FLUIDS: The IV solution helps replenish your body and restore fluids that may have been lost during exercise. 

VITAMIN C: Vitamin C helps with weight loss by maintaining muscle growth and structure as it is a strong antioxidant required to protect the cells and limit damage of free radicals. Vitamin C is required for those engaging in daily workouts due to its ability to help stabilize exercise-induced oxidative stress.[1] 

L-CARNITINE: L-Carnitine is an amino acid derivitave that helps the body turn fat into energy, elevating certain enzymes that are needed by the body to effectively metabolize sugars, starches, and other carbohydrates.[2] L-Carnitine is beneficial to those who exercise due to its ability to reduce the accumulation of lactic acid after intense muscle activity.[2] 

METHIONINE INOSITOL CHOLINE (MIC): MIC is a blend of amino acids that have lipotropic (fat burning) substances to target fatty deposits and increases metabolism.[3]

METHYLCOBALAMIN (B12): Vitamin B12 is an essential component for proper digestion, absorption of foods, and for normal metabolism of carbohydrates and fat. It aids in maintaining healthy nerve cells, formation of DNA, and production of red blood cells. Vitamin B12 is essential in the involvement of homocysteine metabolism and plays a critical role in energy metabolism and immune function. [4]

B-COMPLEX: B vitamins are a group of water-soluble vitamins required for cellular metabolism. They are essential enzyme and protein activity, which is important to help convert food into energy in order to boost the metabolism.[5]
