Revitalise, rejuvenate and recharge with our nutrient infusions. Our specially formulated vitamin drips and booster shots provide a unique combination of vitamins, trace minerals and anti-oxidants which have been designed to rehydrate your body, increase energy levels, support immunity and optimise wellbeing.
IV infusions, also known as IV vitamin drips, have grown in awareness and popularity following increasing media coverage of athletes, celebrities and busy professionals using these vitamin infusions as ‘the secret weapon’ to combat fatigue, boost metabolism and support overall wellness.
Now, everyone can experience the incredible benefits and improved wellbeing provided by intravenous nutrition. Each week, clinics around the world are introducing this treatment to patients looking to increase energy levels and assist the body to manage the stresses and strains of hectic, modern lifestyles. We are one of the only clinics outside of London to offer this popular treatment in our Health & Wellbeing clinic.
WHAT IS IV NUTRITION THERAPY?
IV Infusions were originally developed to help support cancer patients whose vitamin levels had been depleted by chemotherapy but the benefits were soon noticed by a wider audience. Due to the wide ranging benefits of IV nutrition, these infusions have become increasingly popular with celebrities, athletes and busy professionals.
IV Nutrition Therapy (IVNT) safely delivers a cocktail of vitamins, minerals and amino acids directly in to the bloodstream allowing for 100% absorption. The vitamins and minerals used in our IV (intravenous) Infusions and IM (intramuscular) Boosters are essential for biochemical and metabolic reactions in every cell in our bodies.
Give your body exactly what it needs with our personalised IV formulations that are scientifically proven to deliver
Our Doctor Led Clinic offers a range of IV Wellness Infusions, Bespoke IV Vitamin Drips and Energy Booster Shots, all designed to optimise health and wellness as well as supporting other key wellbeing goals and health concerns. Each of the infusions and boosters available have been formulated to ensure maximum effectiveness combined with minimal side effects.
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF IV VITAMIN DRIPS & IM BOOSTERS?
The aim of IV Nutrition Therapy is to optimise health and wellness as well as supporting other key wellbeing goals and health concerns. The substances used in IVNT are vitamins, minerals and water, all of which are classified as “Essential Nutrients”. It's an apt name, as they are ‘essential’ for life, however they are also nutrients that the body cannot synthesise on its own. Traditionally these nutrients were obtained from the food we eat, but modern food is often modified and overprocessed, leaving many of us deficient in these essential nutrients.
If you lack energy, struggle to maintain a healthy weight & are deficient in essential vitamins, our energy boosting IV & IM injections may be exactly what you need
The vitamins, minerals and amino acids used in our IV Drips and Energy Booster shots are essential for biochemical reactions in every cell in our bodies. By balancing our levels through IV infusions, under expert medical advice, our bodies can be restored to peak fitness and maximum energy performance. IV Therapy can be used as an adjunct in any condition where low levels of nutrients or other nutritional deficiencies are suspected.
In addition to immune support, energy enhancement and general wellbeing, research has shown IV Therapy to be beneficial to help support those managing allergies, depression, hormone balance, migraines, chronic fatigue syndrome, inflammatory bowel conditions, menopausal symptoms, lyme disease, fibromyalgia and many other conditions.
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF VITAMIN C?
Vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant with many benefits:
Boosts and restores immune system functions
Natural detoxifier effectively supporting the elimination of toxins & infections
Enhances efficient energy release
Supports cell function to fight both chronic and acute illness
Stimulates collagen formation for firmer, resilient skin
Relieves pain and promotes wellbeing
WHAT IS GLUTATHIONE & WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS?
Glutathione is a tripeptide composed of the amino acids glutamic acid, cysteine and glycine and found in all cells in the body. It is said to be "The Guardian of the Cell” as it is the Master Anti-oxidant, Master Anti-inflammatory and Master Detoxifier in each cell. This super anti-oxidants is essential to support cellular function, energy release & boost the immune system
Benefits of Glutathione include:
Increased energy levels
Detoxifies the liver & cells
Improves mental focus & clarity
Improves quality of sleep
Slows down the aging process
Reduces muscle & joint discomfort
Strengthens immune system
Reduces the effects of stress
Improves the skin
Enhances athletic performance & recovery
ARE IV VITAMIN DRIPS BETTER THAN ORAL SUPPLEMENTS?
More than 1 in 3 people take daily supplements and while we know they are beneficial, few people realise that the body's natural absorption process can render up to 85% of a vitamin tablet useless - so only 15% of the active nutrients may actually find their way into the bloodstream.
Neither oral nor topical vitamins offer comparable results to our unique IV nutrient formulas
With Intravenous Nutrition, the nutrients enter the bloodstream directly and immediately. Much higher concentrations of nutrients are delivered directly to the body's cells through intravenous therapy, allowing the body to better absorb and utilise these nutrients.
Vitamin C is a good example of this. When trying to overcome the common cold, people often load up on vitamin C, which has been scientifically demonstrated to have antiviral effects. However, those effects are only there when blood plasma levels are at around 10-15mg/dL – a level that we just can’t achieve through oral vitamins, however, with IV therapy this can be achieved.
WHO ARE IV VITAMIN DRIPS FOR?
Male or female, young* or old, short or tall, active lifestyle or chained to a desk, everyone is unique and so are their nutrient requirements. Our IV nutrition clinic offers many treatment options for IV therapy depending on individual goals. Our products are designed to meet a range of different health and wellbeing needs.
* the minimum age requirement is 18 years of age
An IV Vitamin Drip treatment would be ideal if you:
Feel lethargic, low in energy or tired all the time
Feel you want to build up your immune system against colds & flu
Are planning a detox or new dietary regime
Want to ensure that your body is not deprived or low in essential minerals or vitamins
Are suffering a sports injury & require a boost to your recovery
Feel stressed, low in mood or an emotional imbalance
Are unhappy with your skin or hair condition
You work out intensively & are strict with your dietary intake
Feel tired & drained due to heavy work load or social commitments & need to keep going
The limited efficacy of oral nutritional supplements means that vitamin infusions for health & wellness are popular in the field of preventative medicine.
These specially formulated nutrient formulas deliver vital nutrients into the body to support immunity, combat fatigue & keep long-term health conditions at bay.
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF MAGNESIUM?
Magnesium is an essential mineral required for nearly all our body’s metabolic processes. It performs vital roles in regulating blood glucose levels, protein synthesis, blood pressure and muscle and nerve function. As well as these roles, it is a key anti-inflammatory agent helping to reduce muscle and joint inflammation to reduce pain. Along with potassium, calcium and sodium, it is classed as one of the seven minerals essential for the functioning of the human body.
Benefits of Magnesium include:
Reduces pain, muscle & joint discomfort
Increases energy levels
Improves quality of sleep & helps insomnia
Reduces cellular oxidative stress
Supports immune system regulation
A selection of our IV nutrient drips contain at least 1000mg (1g) of Magnesium. At higher doses this essential mineral can help support those suffering from:
ME & Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS)
Chronic joint pain & Arthritis
Chronic Headaches & Tension headaches
Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS)
Chronic back pain
Menopausal joint aches and pains

These super anti-oxidants are essential for optimal cellular function and energy release and play an important part in supporting immunity, cardiovascular health and the neurological system.
WHEN WILL I SEE RESULTS?
Our IM Boosters take just seconds and the IV Infusions delivered over 30-60 minutes. Many patients begin to feel the effects during the IV therapy, which then continues over the following hours and days. It doesn't take long to start feeling refreshed, re-energised, and revitalized.

WHAT ARE THE POSSIBLE SIDE EFFECTS OF IV NUTRITION THERAPY?
Side effects are very rare. The most common side effect is light headedness or irritation at the site of injection which could last up to 5-10 minutes. It is possible to feel warm during an IV Vitamin drip which includes magnesium. Some patients also report having a taste of the ‘B’ vitamins in the mouth.
HOW OFTEN SHOULD I HAVE A NUTRIENT INFUSION?
The frequency of the IV vitamin therapy depends on the patient and individual health concerns. For optimum results, our nutrient infusions are recommended to be given as a course 6 over 6-8 weeks. Ideally, weekly for the first 4 treatments and then fortnightly for the final 2 infusions. Following this we recommend a maintenance nutrient infusion every 1-2 months to maintain the benefits gained from the initial course.
For certain situations, such as times of high stress or prior to a marathon, an IV vitamin drip should be given weekly for 4-6 weeks. For more acute conditions such as Migranes, sufferers have reported that they experience relief around 30 minutes after commencement of a Myers Cocktail.
