Ingredients List: What’s in our IV Drip Treatments?

The body needs many different types of vitamins and nutrients to maintain normal function throughout day to day life. However, the body cannot create these vitamins on its own. Most vitamins and nutrients come from external sources, mostly from what we eat and drink. However, as efficient as the metabolic process is, the body does not absorb all the nutrients. IV therapy circumvents this problem and ensures 100% absorption because the nutrients are delivered directly into the bloodstream.

The effectiveness of IV drip therapy is especially valuable during illness, when the body’s demand for nutrients is greater than usual. Supplements are invaluable to the healing process and helping the body recover more quickly.

Drip Hydration offers many IV drip therapy options to quickly and effectively improve the symptoms of a wide variety of conditions. We also custom-blend formulas upon request. Each of our treatments contain a unique combination of ingredients. Learn more about the ingredients in Drip Hydration’s formulas below.

IV Fluids

IV FluidsIV fluids are also known as a saline solution. This sterile solution is made of sodium chloride and water. This liquid is the foundation of every IV solution, providing essential hydration, diluting medications, and facilitating the delivery of vitamins throughout the body.

The human body is composed of 60% water[1], which means that staying hydrated is essential to every system.

Proper hydration provides the following health benefits:

  • Cushions joints
  • Maintains cardiovascular health
  • Improves endurance
  • Boosts mood
  • Promotes and improves energy production
  • Boosts concentration and focus
  • Helps provide mental clarity

In addition to these benefits, IV solutions ensure a 100% absorption rate, giving your body the maximum effect of the nutrients and medications in the IV formula.

Vitamin C

Vitamin CAlso known as Ascorbic Acid, Vitamin C is a water-soluble vitamin that plays many essential roles throughout the body, helping to maintain systems such as muscles, bones, immune support, and the circulatory system.

Vitamin C promotes the biosynthesis of collagen, which is a fundamental part of connective tissues. In this capacity, Vitamin C reduces stretch marks and is an essential component of healing wounds.

Vitamin C is an antioxidant that also helps regenerate other antioxidants within the body. This vitamin reduces the damaging effects of free radicals, which are unstable molecules that contribute to tissue damage and aging.

High-dose vitamin C

Studies have shown that high doses of Vitamin C can slow the formation of carcinogens, regulate immune response, and reduce redox reactions that can lead to the formation of cancer[2][3].

An exceptionally high concentration of Vitamin C is pivotal to its capability to defend against and eliminate cancer cells while leaving unaffected, healthy cells alone. When administered intravenously, high doses of Vitamin C can produce hydrogen peroxide that causes DNA damage to cancer cells necessary to cause cell death[4]. These doses of Vitamin C do not cause damage to healthy cells as cancer cells are less efficient at removing hydrogen peroxide.

Those looking to boost their intake of Vitamin C for maximum benefit should make sure not to consume more than 200 mg or 2 grams daily as anything more than that could cause adverse reactions.


GlutathioneGlutathione is an antioxidant that plays a crucial role in preventing cellular damage. This antioxidant binds with toxins in the body and facilitates their removal from the body. Glutathione is involved in many metabolic processes and biochemical reactions, as well as DNA repair and synthesis. Studies suggest that it also slows the speed of aging⁴⁵.

Glutathione shields cellular macromolecules from redox reactions and mitigates oxidative stress on the body by detoxifying the body, neutralizing free radicals and facilitating cell excretion. Glutathione also recycles vitamins C and E to protect cells from damaging oxidants[5]. The amount of glutathione in cellular fluids naturally decreases over time, which in turn reduces the effectiveness of the body’s natural ability to remove free radicals.

A deficiency in glutathione can contribute to increased oxidative stress on the body, so supplementation is especially valuable in preventing the damaging effects of free radicals and reducing oxidative stress at the cellular level[6]. Because glutathione is not well absorbed by the body when taken by mouth[7], it is ideal when administered in IV solutions.

High-dose glutathione

High levels of glutathione work to defend cells against free radicals, regulates cellular apoptosis (cell death), helps regenerate vitamins C and E, and supports mitochondrial health. A concentrated dose of glutathione effectively expedites the plasma membrane transfer of toxins throughout the body, helping the body get rid of waste.

Glutathione may also play a protective role against COVID-19, as it helps stop a cytokine storm – an uncontrolled series of inflammatory responses – that can cause serious complications. Individuals who belong to a high-risk group may benefit from restoring normal levels of glutathione while infected with the virus.


B complex vitamins refer to several different vitamins which are part of the same family. Together, these water-soluble vitamins perform a range of vital functions including cardiovascular support, helping the body convert food into energy, immune function, and more[8].

In addition to these, B complex vitamins are most notable for their role in promoting healthy skin, hair, and nails. They reduce free radicals in the body that contribute to aging, resulting in an overall healthier and younger appearance.

The B Complex Vitamins Are:

  • B1 (thiamine)
  • B2 (riboflavin)
  • B3 (niacin)
  • B5 (pantothenic acid)
  • B6 (pyridoxine)
  • B7 (biotin)
  • B12 (cyanocobalamin)

Because the B vitamin complex is so versatile and performs so many functions throughout the body, it is featured in many of Drip Hydration’s IV drip formulas.

Vitamin B7 (Biotin)

Vitamin B7 (Biotin)Vitamin B7, also known as biotin, is part of the B-vitamin complex and is associated with improving the strength, appearance, and overall health of the skin, hair, and nails[9]. To this end, biotin is a common addition to beauty supplements.

Biotin plays a role in converting food into energy by helping to metabolize carbohydrates and fats. B7 also helps maintain the nervous system[10] and promotes healthy psychological function¹².

While rare, biotin deficiency is often marked by hair loss, a decrease in mental cognition, dermatitis, depression, hypotonia (decreased muscle tone), and ataxia (decreased muscle coordination)[11][12] Biotin cannot be absorbed through the skin[13]. IV therapy can quickly restore normal levels of biotin to prevent unwanted symptoms of deficiency.

Vitamin B12 (Cyanocobalamin)

Vitamin B12 (Cyanocobalamin)Vitamin B12 is part of the B-vitamin complex and notable for its role in maintaining optimal neurological function. The vitamin is associated with preventing memory loss and improving concentration, as well as boosting energy levels.

Vitamin B12 has a large role in DNA synthesis and metabolizing amino acids. B12 is essential to ensuring the proper formation of red blood cells; low levels of B12 can result in anemia.

Some individuals have increased difficulty absorbing B12 due to an underlying medical condition. These individuals are at an increased risk of developing vitamin B12 deficiency. Symptoms of B12 deficiency include anemia, fatigue, and neurological changes such as memory problems, depression, and dementia[14].

B12 absorption is less effective when supplemented orally, so IV injection is an alternative and more effective way to correct B12 deficiency.

Studies suggest an association between low levels of vitamin B12 in the body and cognitive impairment, neurodegenerative disease, and dementia[15].

Amino acids

Amino acidsAmino acids are a group of organic compounds that form the building blocks of proteins that make up 75% of the body. Being foundational to normal chemical reactions, amino acids are involved in almost every body function, including[16]:

  • Growth and development
  • Healing and repair
  • Normal digestion
  • Providing energy for the body
  • Regulating moods by producing hormones
  • Producing neurotransmitters
  • Assisting in the creation of muscles and connective tissue
  • Assisting in the synthesis of skin

Amino acids are classified into three categories – Essential, Nonessential, and Conditional. Each group has its own role and set of functions.

  • Essential amino acids cannot be produced by the body and must be ingested from an outside source. Regular meals will provide enough for normal function.
  • Nonessential amino acids are naturally produced by the body throughout the day.
  • Conditional amino acids are beneficial when the body is fighting off an illness or coping with stress.

A balance of essential and nonessential amino acids are required for optimal health and wellbeing. The body does not store amino acids, so they must be ingested or produced daily, otherwise the proteins in muscle and tissue will start to degrade.

Top athletic performance relies on proteins to help maintain muscle and tissue strength. Studies suggest that amino acids enhance the body’s endurance and capacity for exercise[17]. Amino acids may modify athletic performance in several different ways, including increasing the amount of anabolic hormones in the body to boost metabolism, changing the way the body utilises energy during exercise, and delaying the onset of mental and physical fatigue by altering the rate at which serotonin is created[18].


MagnesiumMagnesium is a mineral involved in over 300 biochemical reactions and enzyme systems that regulate various functions in the body[19]. This mineral is found in many types of food.

Healthy Levels of Magnesium[20]:

  • Maintains nerve and muscle function
  • Maintains bone strength
  • Provides immune system support
  • Regulates heartbeat
  • Regulates blood glucose (blood sugar) levels
  • Regulates blood pressure
  • Boosts energy levels
  • Aids in the production of proteins

Because magnesium is involved in so many functions throughout the body, this mineral is included in many of Drip Hydration’s IV therapies.

Magnesium plays a large part in energy production and protein synthesis. Supplementation can help improve fatigue and energy levels. Magnesium also provides cardiovascular support and helps regulate blood glucose and blood pressure.

Studies suggest that magnesium supplementation can improve the symptoms of major depression[21] due to the correlation between low serotonin and magnesium deficiency[22].

Low magnesium levels can cause various symptoms, including fatigue, cramps, muscle weakness, or numbness[23]. Magnesium deficiency may also be associated with Alzheimer’s, cardiovascular disease, osteoporosis, and diabetes.

Athletes with low levels of magnesium in the body may benefit from supplementation to improve muscle function, energy production, and physical performance[24].

IV therapy can quickly and efficiently correct the magnesium levels in the body and prevent health complications caused by prolonged deficiency.


TaurineTaurine is an essential amino acid that plays a role in many systems throughout the body. Concentrations mainly occur in the heart, muscles, brain, and eyes[25].

Deficiency in taurine is rare because most individuals ingest sufficient amounts of taurine through meat, fish, and dairy consumption, where this amino acid naturally occurs. Vegetarians and vegans may benefit from taurine supplements, as vegetarian sources may contain a sufficient amount of the body’s daily required value.

Taurine deficiency is rare and is generally characterized by changes in vision, anxiety, depression, weight gain, and kidney problems.

Taurine has many functions in the body, including[26]:

  • Regulating certain minerals in the cells
  • Supporting immune function
  • Supporting muscle growth and development
  • Regulating immune system health
  • Regulating antioxidant function
  • Regulating anti-inflammatory function
  • Maintaining electrolyte function and balance
  • Maintaining nervous system function
  • Maintaining metabolic function

Taurine is often associated with enhancing sports performance. This antioxidant prevents the oxidative stress caused by exercise[27] and may be beneficial to reducing fatigue and optimizing muscle function and health.

NAD (Nicotinamide Adenine Dinucleotide)

NAD (Nicotinamide Adenine Dinucleotide)NAD is a coenzyme that is associated with the metabolism. This coenzyme maintains regular levels of energy, regulates redox reactions, and maintains the health of mitochondria[28].

NAD activates sirtuins, which are proteins that utilize NAD to improve metabolic efficiency[29], which in turn influences cell changes that contribute to aging, overall energy levels, and can improve neurodegenerative disorders[30]. In addition to these effects, NAD promotes anti-aging by lengthening telomeres, which are protective caps located at the ends of chromosomes that naturally get shorter as the body ages.

The level of NAD in the body declines with age and reduces the effectiveness of cellular function[31]. Supplementation can improve a wide variety of changes in the body, including:

  • Restoring muscle function and athletic performance
  • Improving brain regeneration
  • Restoring energy levels
  • Improving depression
  • Improving mental clarity

Serotonin is a neurotransmitter which, among other functions, is commonly associated with mood regulation. NAD improves mood by increasing the levels of serotonin in the body.

Stem Cells

stem cell IV treatmentStem cells can improve the symptoms of chronic pain, chronic diseases, degenerative diseases, aging, and more. Stem cells are non-specialized cells, meaning that they do not initially have a specific function and can become any type of cell in your body.

Unlike injections of stem cells, which are administered in a specific area for localized healing, stem cells administered intravenously can reach every organ in your body.

There is almost limitless potential as to the application of this innovative treatment. Stem cells can support new cell growth and repair after your body’s natural healing mechanism has reached its limit. Stem cells continue dividing and growing after treatment, where they can create additional stem cells or become specialized cells, continuing to promote cell regeneration throughout your body.


Present in all body fluids, Exosomes are a collection of extracellular vesicles containing DNA, RNA, protein, and lipids from the cells that excrete them. They have been widely credited for their role in negotiating intercellular dialogue by acting as couriers of disparate biomolecules, including proteins and lipids, from one cell to another.

Exosomes support the exchange of associated RNA (Ribonucleic Acid) to beneficiary cells, which help manufacture protein. They also help promote healing and regeneration, as well as facilitate waste management in the body.

Replenishing exosomes via IV therapy can help combat chronic pain, inflammation, degenerative conditions, and support tissue repair.

Iron is a critical mineral that is required for both growth and development. Iron is manufactured within the body in order to create Hemoglobin, a protein contained in red blood cells which carries oxygen from the lungs throughout the body. Iron is also responsible for producing Myoglobin, a protein that contributes oxygen to muscles.

Iron works to protect several vital functions throughout the body, including the immune system, gastrointestinal processes, and managing our body temperatures. Healthy iron levels are necessary for our bodies to create hormones.

The required daily amount of Iron will vary depending on factors such as age, sex, and health status. For example, iron is in tremendously high demand during pregnancies, where deficiencies are common. Low iron levels may also result from a plant-based diet, as the body does not absorb iron from plant-derived foods as fully as from meat and fish.

An iron deficiency can result in serious health issues, chiefly amongst them iron deficiency anemia, which can cause heart palpitations, skin issues, fatigue, and an array of other symptoms.

Restoring low iron levels with an IV infusion is the most efficient way to correct iron deficiency, as the ingredients are immediately available for cells to use. This method also helps prevent gastrointesinal symptoms that may occur with oral supplements. Intravenous administration circumvents any gut absorption issues, ensuring the maximum amount of bioavailable iron per infusion.

Lipostat Plus

Lipotropics have a fundamental role to play in how our bodies use both energy and fat reserves. The central ingredients that form Lipostat Plus are Methionine, Inositol, and Choline, which are amino acids that encourage the breakdown and metabolism of fat in the body.

The inclusion of Vitamins B6 and B12 presents an ideal alliance intended to boost vitality while the Lipotropics encourage your body to burn fat instead of storing it.

Our Lipostat Plus infusion contains the following ingredients with accompanying benefits:

  • Methionine offers assistance in the breakdown of carbohydrates and sugars in the conversion into energy.
  • Inositol transforms food into energy.
  • Choline reduces muscle recuperation, supports nerve cells, and aids in converting fat into energy.
  • Pyridoxine develops red blood cell production.
  • Cyanocobalamin promotes ample energy reserves as well as healthy nerve cells.

Monoclonal antibodies – Bebtelovimab

When your body contracts the COVID-19 virus, your immune system creates an antibody to defend against it. However, this process takes several weeks, during which the virus grows in strength and duration.

Monoclonal antibodies are proteins that are constructed in a laboratory. They are designed to mirror the immune system’s capacity to ward off disease and viruses. Bebtelovimab is a monoclonal antibody therapy that prevents the SARS-CoV-2 virus from entering human cells and replicating. This helps decrease the severity and duration of COVID-19 symptoms and reduces the risk of hospitalization.

Bebtelovimab is recommended for adults who have tested positive for COVID-19 and are considered at high risk of developing severe complications, such as hospitalization or death.


Zinc is an essential mineral present throughout the body that supports the immune system, metabolic function, and can accelerate the wound healing process. When ingested after cold symptoms first appear, Zinc may decrease both the severity and duration of a common cold.

Due to its many operations throughout the body, several organs and tissues are affected by a deficiency in Zinc, namely bones, skin, digestive, central nervous, and immune systems. Indications of Zinc deficiency vary by age, with diarrhea being the most prevalent among children and infants. Children with a deficiency in Zinc often display delayed growth that can lead to reproductive troubles and a loss of appetite upon reaching adulthood.

Zinc is contained in many foods (predominantly meat, seafood, and poultry) and is also present in over-the-counter drugs and lozenges. Because of its versatility, it is contained in many of our IV treatments and can also be added to any infusion.
