An IV nutritional therapy treatment is an IV bag of fluid with or without added vitamins, placed intravenously with a cannula. The IV bag can contain sodium chloride which is used to hydrate the body. You can then add selective vitamins for wellness and help with the symptoms of hangovers and jetlag. Sodium chloride is used for hydration and replacing lost minerals in the body. Vitamin C can lessen the symptoms of a cold and can work as a natural antihistamine. B Vitamins can help with fatigue and give a boost of energy, help with poor memory and low mood.
