What is IV therapy?

IV therapy administers a supersized dose of fluids and nutrients (usually including vitamins, minerals, and other natural substances) into an arm vein. Howard Health and Wellness offers IV therapy in the office to give you a quick, convenient pick-me-up whenever you need it. 

What are the types of IV therapy?

IV therapy can be only for hydration (IV fluids with normal saline) or is highly customizable. Dr. Howard recommends an IV therapy type based on your health problems and goals for the treatment. Some of the most popular IV therapy options at Howard Health and Wellness include: 


Glutathione is an antioxidant that helps defend you from harmful environmental substances, and it helps flush your system when you have toxic levels of heavy metals or other substances. It’s also helpful for many other uses, like complexion enhancement and skin rejuvenation.

Plenish™ IV nutrient cocktail

The Plenish IV nutrient cocktail is based on the Myers’ cocktail. It contains:

  • Magnesium
  • Calcium
  • Thiamine
  • Riboflavin
  • Pyridoxine
  • Niacinamide
  • Dexpanthenol
  • Cyanocobalamin

This powerhouse IV can improve energy, immunity, and general wellness, too. It’s great for when you’re feeling run down. 

Amino MultiPlex

Amino MultiPlex is packed with amino acids including:

  • Arginine
  • Glutamine
  • Lysine
  • Proline

Howard Health and Wellness also offers subcutaneous (under-the-skin) vitamin B12 injections, which can provide some of the same benefits as IV therapy. If you have a B12 deficiency, injections can potentially help with improved metabolism and weight loss. 

Does IV therapy work the same way as supplements?

IV therapy gives you a single big infusion of the nutrients you need. It goes into your bloodstream right away and has rapid results. Usually, IV therapy is an occasional treatment, with many patients having it anywhere from once a week to once a month. 

With supplements, the nutrients must move through your digestive system, so they take longer than IV therapy to take effect. Supplements build up over time to bring your body to its optimal nutrient levels and keep it where it needs to be. 

 You can have IV therapy at the practice and also take supplements daily at home. Dr. Howard works with you to establish healthy habits and a better life naturally with these two effective strategies.
