Powerpack/Energize - $275

Energy Boosting Health Support. ! It’s like getting a bag full of energy!

Free radical neutralizing antioxidants, mitochondrial enhancing micronutrients, no wonder this is one of our most popular drips. As its name implies, this drip can be a source of energy boosting, micronutrient enhancing health support.

WHAT’S IN THE IV VITAMIN INFUSION THERAPY:

In addition to brain and cellular benefits, the mix of the vitamins in the Power Pack along with a high dose of vitamin C are powerful antioxidants. These antioxidants are critical to neutralize free radicals caused by the stress, wear and tear of daily life. Energize contains all 9 of the essential water-soluble vitamins which are necessary for energy production. Also has Carnitine, an amino acid needed for energy production.

Shield / Protector - $275

Immune System Protection! Keeping your immune system working properly is the key to diminishing the risk of infections.

Your immune system is your “Shield“ against infections and illness. If you have recently been exposed to illness, and especially if you find your own immune system is likely weakened, the Shield IV may be of help.

In many cases, sinus infections, head colds, bronchitis, chest colds and other infections are caused not by bacteria, but by viruses. In such settings not only are oral antibiotics ineffective, but they can be harmful. Antibiotics have been shown to disrupt the healthy balance of bacteria in the gut (known as the microbiome). 

Other viral illnesses such as cold sores, herpes, shingles, are also more likely to occur at times of stress, weakness and fatigue. 

WHAT’S IN THE IV VITAMIN INFUSION THERAPY:

Contains a super-dose Vitamin C, Magnesium and Zinc which are critical for immune function. Also, B12, B-complex, for their added antioxidant support.

Post Covid-19 Vaccine Recommended Boosters: Zinc + Glutathione (improves GSH deficiency and mitochondrial function,  lowers oxidative stress, inflammation, and endothelial dysfunction)

Why choose IV Lifestyle Drips?

Vitamin insufficiency can lead to an array of symptoms that include; depressed mood, increased anxiety, fatigue, muscle aching, neuropathy, brain fog, and other symptoms that compromise quality of life. Because the symptoms overlap a host of other diagnosed conditions, and because most doctors are not thoroughly trained in nutrition and vitamin support therapy, the cause can be overlooked.

There are 13 essential vitamins. These are vitamins that your body cannot manufacture and that you must acquire in order to survive. Among the 13 essential vitamins there are four that are considered fat soluble. Those are vitamins D, E, K, and A. Fat soluble means that your body has a capacity to store them.

There are also 9 water soluble vitamins. Those vitamins include 8 essential B vitamins, and vitamin C.

“RDA,” or Recommended Daily Allowances, were established approximately 40 years ago. They represent the minimum needed to avoid disease, but do they represent the best amount? It is possible that people can benefit from greater amounts.

Preop - $200

Prepare your body for Surgery! Recommended 24-48 hours before surgery. 

No matter how “minor,” surgery is a trauma and a shock to the system. You should prepare for this event like your life depends on it. The Pre OP IV fills you with the ingredients your body needs to help you get through. Proper preparation for surgery can diminish operative risk and speed recovery. This drip is intended to be used in addition to healthy sleep, alcohol avoidance, and proper nutrition. It provides micronutrients including zinc to support immune function, and vitamin c to support healing and collagen formation.

Studies evaluating the benefit of vitamin therapy preoperatively have shown trends toward benefit with reductions in complications such as cardiac irregularities, duration of hospital stay, need to go to intensive care units, etc.

Because these vitamins are given intravenously, they achieve maximum cellular benefit, and do not have the potential to irritate your gastrointestinal system in the days leading up to surgery.

WHAT’S IN THE IV VITAMIN INFUSION THERAPY:

Essential Amino Acids, which are critical to rebuilding muscle, Magnesium has been demonstrated to reduce postoperative pain, Zinc, which is essential to immune system function and support, and a high dose of vitamin C to set the foundation to support the high demand of collagen production that will occur at the time of surgery.

This drip is a robust immune system booster to assist you in avoiding infectious complications.

Unsure of what the best IV drip for you is?

Postop - $259

Recover from Surgery! The goal is to decrease the risk of wound break down, or infection. Either of these events can present as a postoperative disaster that can extend recovery.

This is fuel for recovery! After surgery, the gut can shut down leaving your body depleted, but your veins remain open to receive the restorative benefit of the Post Op IV infusion.

Postoperatively there is a risk for infection, wound breakdown, and poor gastric absorption of protein in micronutrients. The drugs used at the time of surgery often will leave the gut impaired in function.

After surgery, the gut often shuts down which can make it hard to absorb the nutrients needed to prevent feeling depleted.  Direct infusion bypasses GI barriers. Micronutrients will be infused through the vein to get directly to the tissue that has been traumatized by surgery and support its recovery.

WHAT’S IN THE IV VITAMIN INFUSION THERAPY:

Essential Amino Acids, which are critical to rebuilding muscle, high dose Vitamin C to support wound healing, intravenous fluids to help flush out the toxins from the drugs used at the time of surgery, support good kidney function, and help restore energy. Additionally, the drip includes Magnesium to support smooth cardiac function, as well as immune function. Magnesium has been associated with decreased postoperative pain.

Along with magnesium, the infusion includes zinc for the benefit of enzymatic activities, as well as support of immune function. Our Postop drip also contains Biotin, Magnesium, B12, B Complex, Zinc, and Glutathione which is an anti-inflammatory.

FREQUENCY

Depending on the magnitude of surgery and your speed of recovery, this infusion can be repeated once or twice a week until you are all the way back to your health.

Allstar / MVP - $275

Athletic Performance Enhancement! Our MVP drip gives the body what it needs to perform and recover. 

It’s not how you start the race that matters, it’s how you finish. Done prior to the race, this can be a springboard to your best performance. Afterwards, it gives your body what it needs to recover. Make sure you arrive at the starting line fully fueled. 

Large amounts of magnesium can be lost through sweat. If magnesium levels are not ideal you will be more likely to develop muscle cramping, and irregular heartbeats. The magnesium infusion goes right to the cells from the vein so the risk of GI side effects associated with oral Magnesium are bypassed. 

WHAT’S IN THE IV VITAMIN INFUSION THERAPY:

Vitamin C to support all of your ligaments, tendons and muscles that will be put to the test. Magnesium to prevent muscle cramps and support healthy cardiac rhythm, B12 & B-Complex to neutralize free radicals, support metabolism, energy, and provide antioxidants to neutralize a free radical assault from the stress of exercise. The infusion includes L-Arginine which has a vasodilating effect to support blood flow to the muscles, L-Carnitine to support mitochondrial energy, and Glutamine to support the GI system.

Jetsetter - $206

Preflight Support. Intellectual Medicine in Warwick, is minutes from T.F. Green Airport, making this drip a convenient part of your healthy pre-flight routine!

Stress and the cascade of free radicals from ultraviolet exposure weakens the immune system. Whether for business or pleasure, your travel plans should not include an invitation to illness. Stress, in the cascade of free radicals from ultraviolet exposure, weakens your immune system. Make the Jet Setter IV part of your preflight routine.

In addition to exposure from other passengers, flying exposes our body to a cascade of free radicals (those are molecules that are missing an electron). The Jet Setter IV is designed to provide you with high levels of antioxidants along with hydration to help you through your flight.

WHAT’S IN THE IV VITAMIN INFUSION THERAPY:

Packed with antioxidants that are thought to have a protective effect by either reducing or preventing oxidative damage including Vitamin C, B12, B Complex, Zinc, Magnesium, and Glutathione (anti-inflammatory) will help you enjoy a healthy trip.

Why intravenous therapy?

Simply put, there is no better way to achieve high dose vitamins and deliver them directly to the cell than via direct infusion. Many people are afflicted with conditions that impair absorption of vitamins. Irritable bowel, leaky gut, and even the use of antacids, antibiotics and other medications may interfere with nutrient absorption.

DRIPBaR clients have chosen to use IV vitamin support to help them with conditions ranging from the common cold, to headaches, fibromyalgia or any of the conditions listed above. Still other clients have made the safe administration of regular intravenous infusions of high-dose vitamins part of their health maintenance routine. Whether for addressing acute issues, lifestyle support, or prevention, the Intellectual Medicine team is ready to provide you with a safe and friendly experience.

Executive NAD - $400

The Ultimate Anti-Aging Support! NAD (nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide) is an essential part of mitochondrial support.

As we age, diminishing levels of NAD are associated with mitochondrial deterioration. Decaying of mitochondria is a key driver of the aging process. 

When NAD levels decline with age, it can result in big problems for your nervous, muscular, and cardio-metabolic systems. 

WHY DO NAD LEVELS DECLINE?

NAD levels also decline due to stress and viruses. Addiction, Anxiety, and PTSD can also deplete your NAD levels.

In addition to the natural decay of mitochondria that occurs with aging, there are some individuals who are believed to be suffering from genetically inherited “NAD Energy Deficiency Syndrome.” This syndrome is characterized by low energy states and chronic fatigue and may predispose individuals to compulsive/addictive forms of behavior. This means slower cell repair. 

When you supplement your NAD levels you can:

  • repair your DNA
  • protect your brain cells from damage
  • reduce your inflammation
  • fight the oxidative stress that comes with aging

Nobel winners have joined the chorus of those pointing to preserving mitochondria as one of the keys to delay aging. NAD is essential to healthy mitochondrial function. Mitochondrial function is essential for youthful energy and good health.

Recommended NAD Dose / Frequency 

1st Drip: 125mg NAD

2nd Drip: 250 NAD  

This drip is recommended monthly for individuals who are not currently in our NAD self-injection program.  

Soother / Relief - $206

Relax your Muscles and Mind! Muscle pain, spasm, chronic inflammation, anxiety and depression can be triggered or amplified by inadequacies of critical minerals and vitamins.

Perhaps nowhere is the brain/body connection more prominent than that between the stress centers of your brain in the muscles. Muscle tension and psychological stress go hand-in-hand.

Your brain is an organ like any other in your body and requires proper nutrition and care to function its best. Depression and stress can be caused by or amplified by micronutrient deficiencies. Sometimes we ignore the stress we are facing, and it comes out as painful muscles.

In addition to the mind body connection with regard to stress and muscle pain, there is the intrinsic muscle pain that comes as a consequence of fibromyalgia, and other forms of chronic inflammation. Drug therapy is disappointingly ineffective, and frequently accompanied with side effects.

Studies have shown that migraines may be caused by low body stores of magnesium.

WHAT’S IN THE IV VITAMIN INFUSION THERAPY:

This drip uses a combination of magnesium along with high dose vitamins to help support cellular health, with the objective of reducing spasms, muscle pain, headache and symptoms of anxiety. Many clients report experiencing instant relaxation and pain relief. 

High dose magnesium aids in relieving headaches, muscle tension and anxiety. The Soother has a blend of high dose Magnesium, B Vitamins, Zinc, Vitamin C and other micronutrients to support mental health, and disrupt muscle tension and pain.

Flu Fighter / DEFCON 1 - $229

Relieve Early Symptoms of Illness! Recommended drip for Covid Positive Patients (plus NAD)

Nothing crushes a flu or a cold better than your immune system. Regardless of the cause of your illness, the intravenous hydration offered by the FLU FIGHTER can be a welcomed relief.

When you start to feel the early signs, we recommend that you “Drip, Don’t Drug.” The Flu Fighter intravenous IV therapy supports your immune function without the awful side effects, and gut ripping consequences of antibiotics. Zinc is essential for immune function, and IV vitamin C may help to fight the virus that causes illness. This drip gives your body the fluids, vitamins and minerals your immune system needs to support its best function.

WHAT’S IN THE IV VITAMIN INFUSION THERAPY:

The Flu Fighter has all of the immune supporting attributes as our Shield IV Plus Amino Acids and enhanced fluids.

Contains a super-dose Vitamin C, Magnesium and Zinc which are critical for immune function. Also packed with B12 and B-complex for their added antioxidant and energy support. The IV vitamin infusion also contains the added benefit of enhanced fluids to reverse dehydration, and Amino Acids to provide protein nourishment in the face of decreased food intake and increased metabolic demand.

Why Do I Need Extra Fluids In My Vitamin IV Infusion? 

Dehydration can amplify the negative symptoms of any acute illness, put a strain on the kidneys, and make it difficult for the body to flush out toxins.

Allergy - $275

Reduce Allergy Related Inflammation with our natural antihistamine and immune system support IV!

Allergic rhinitis is caused by an abnormal immune response due to allergens that enter the body from the environment. The immune response triggers an inflammatory cascade of free radicals and cytokines that create the symptoms. This infusion contains high levels of antioxidants to neutralize that reaction.

WHAT’S IN THE IV VITAMIN INFUSION THERAPY:

Our drip is packed with Vitamin C, which is a natural antihistamine and offers serious immune system support; Glutamine, which assists in healing muscle tissue and boosts immune health; B12, B-complex, for their added antioxidant support, and Glutathione, an anti-inflammatory which reduces toxins and free radicals.

Firm / Radiant - $206

Skin Beautification and Maintenance!

Skin Beautification and Maintenance! Clear, tight, smooth beautiful skin depends on what you put into the body. 

The perfect companion to any Intellectual Medicine aesthetic procedure. 

The epidermis, that is the outer layer of your skin, is designed to repel penetration by outside substances. Therefore, it makes sense to support your skin from the inside out, as well as from the outside in. Any anti-aging regimen is not complete unless it takes into account supporting facial and skin anti-aging. Your skin is attacked by free radicals from ultraviolet radiation every day. Exposed areas are most acutely affected, but all of your skin receives some impact.

Sun blocks are simply not enough to prevent aging of the skin. Even with sunblock, the radiation penetrates to the deeper layers where the collagen is formed causing it to degrade. Vitamin C is known to be a critical component of collagen, including the collagen in the skin and the layers beneath the skin that keep things tight.

Without proper micronutrients, the connection between the outer and the inner layer of skin can loosen creating more wrinkles and aging skin.

WHAT’S IN THE IV VITAMIN INFUSION THERAPY:

This infusion contains High Dose Vitamin C to support collagen production, other antioxidants including the B Complex Vitamins which improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and a high dose of biotin which improves skin’s hydration, smoothness, and appearance. 

Biotin is widely used as an oral supplement to support skin, nails and hair. By delivering it directly through the vein the expectation is that it will have a greater impact on the skin supporting its best tone.

The infusion is finished with a high dose of Glutathione. Glutathione neutralizes the free radicals that are known to damage skin and collagen. It also has a capacity to affect the overproduction of pigment in the skin causing it to subtly lighten. Glutathione also improves skin elasticity and reduces skin wrinkles.
