IV Therapy Q&A

What is IV therapy?

Intravenous (IV) therapy delivers therapeutic doses of fluid vitamins, supplements, and herbs to support your body and lifestyle. 

Based on your health goals and laboratory evaluation, you can use IV therapy as a simple wellness tool on its own, in conjunction with traditional medical treatment or with a personalized nutrition plan.

Jelena Petkovic, PAC, MMS, DHSc, offers a variety of IV therapy formulations, including detoxification support, weight loss support, and immune support.

What are some common injectable vitamin and IV therapy components?

Among the most common components of IV therapy are NAD+, glutathione, and vitamin C.

NAD+

Nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD+) is a molecule that functions as a coenzyme for many of the body’s metabolic processes. As you age, your body’s supply of this molecule decreases. IV infusions of NAD+ promote healthy immune function, healthy aging, increased energy, pain reduction, cellular biogenesis, neuroprotection, and better metabolism.

Glutathione

Produced naturally in the liver, glutathione consists of three amino acids: glycine, cysteine, and glutamic acid. Its functions include helping with tissue building and repair, producing proteins and chemicals needed in the body, and immune system function.

Glutathione is a popular IV therapy choice for people living with liver disease, heart disease, or alcohol use disorder. It also promotes healthy aging.

Vitamin C

Vitamin C is a well-known nutrient found naturally in citrus fruits, leafy vegetables, potatoes, tomatoes, and other foods. It supports the health of your muscles, blood vessels, connective tissues, and bones. It also helps the body absorb iron, which helps with red blood cell production.

IV therapy to administer vitamin C is popular for general health and immune system boosting, as well as treating vitamin C deficiencies. These deficiencies can present symptoms like poor wound healing, fatigue, joint pain, swollen and bleeding gums, colored spots on the skin, and even loose teeth.

In high doses, vitamin C infusions may help the physical, mental and emotional well-being of people living with cancer.

Is IV therapy safe?

Absolutely! When administered by a qualified professional like Dr. Jelena, IV therapy is completely safe and a great way to deliver vitamins, minerals and the like to people who can benefit from them.
