About This IV

7_partyrecveryivYou made a mistake, overdid it a bit last night and now you feel miserable. You’re suffering from a condition called “acute alcohol withdrawal”—more popularly known as a hangover. Don’t get sidelined by headaches, nausea, and brain fog. Let us help you feel better fast! We’ll speak softly and start rapidly rehydrating your body with 1 liter of normal saline crystalloid. For that splitting headache, we’ll add Toradol—a long-lasting, non-narcotic, potent pain reliever and anti-inflammatory. Throw in some Zofran for nausea and your symptoms will virtually disappear.

But we take it a step further, we give you back the B vitamins and minerals your body may be missing after last night, and top it off with a generous helping of antioxidants like vitamin C to get you feeling like new again.



Alcohol induces a state of dehydration in the body by inhibiting the hormone ADH (anti-diuretic hormone) secreted by the pituitary gland. This causes frequent urination, hence all the trips you make to the bathroom while drinking. Aggressive re-hydration is very important in acute alcohol withdrawal recovery. Replacement of other key nutrients like folate (B9), riboflavin (B2), thiamine (B1), cobalamin (B12), zinc and magnesium have also been shown to reduce the symptoms of acute alcohol withdrawal (2),(3).

When you drink, it increases your levels of oxidative stress. This puts your mitochondria—the energy factories in our cells that produce ATP—under duress. In times of heightened oxidative stress your cells are exposed to high levels of oxidants and free radicals, increased hydrogen peroxide production and decreased nitric oxide production—a molecule which is key in keeping our blood vessels open and allowing adequate blood flow to tissues.

To mitigate this, you need to increase your intake of antioxidants such as vitamin C. The research bears this out. A 2014 study in animals (1) showed that melatonin taken before alcohol ingestion helped reduce withdrawal symptoms, likely due to its effects as an antioxidant. Other antioxidants like vitamin C could, therefore, be helpful in managing acute alcohol withdrawal which is precisely why we add them to this IV.

I feel golden!! Thank you for setting me up with the Athletic Performance and Recovery IV yesterday. I was really hurting before, very sore in my hamstrings especially after doing 405 pound dead-lift sets the day before. Immediately after the IV I was at least 90% better. Soreness gone! In fact I went back to the gym and did a full upper body workout and felt stronger than I normally do even with short rests between sets. I couldn’t have even imagined working out  before the IV given how sore I was! As a bonus I felt  very alert and had a ton of energy the rest of the evening.

As you know I am training for a competition in November so I am glad I found IV for Life to give me that extra edge.  I like the targeted amino acids you use in the IV, the  L-Arginine,  L-Glutamine,  L-carnitine and the alpha GPC…definitely felt that Growth Hormone boost today. I recommend this IV treatment for anyone pushing themselves athletically or when you’ve overdone it and are simply too sore.
