It wasn’t long ago when Intravenous (IV) Vitamin Therapy was a celebrity and athlete secret. Today, it is one of the fastest growing treatments for performance, focus, beauty, recovery, skin health, anti-aging, detoxing, and even cancer prevention.
IV therapy has been around since the 1950’s, but modern medicine allows doctors to customize the fluid injections to focus on a variety of different treatments and health benefits. Custom IV “Cocktails” can be created on the spot and the nations top clinics offer an IV lounge along with a full Intravenous therapy menu to choose from.
Here is a short list of popular uses for IV therapies at Hawaii Natural Medicine’s IV Lounge in Honolulu:
- Energy / Attention & Focus
- Athletic Performance & Recovery
- Anti-aging / Anti-Cancer
- Skin health
- Immunity boost
- Instant Hangover Cure
- Surgery recovery
Why is IV Therapy Better than Supplements?
Our digestive system is limited to the number of vitamins and minerals we can absorb, and often times high oral doses of supplements like Vitamin C can make you feel sick. IV therapy allows the vitamins and nutrients to bypass your digestive system and go directly where they need to be. With a direct injection into the bloodstream, you can increase the amount of vitamin and minerals your body is able to absorb.
What are Common Nutrients in Vitamin Drips?
- Vitamin C – immune system, fight off viruses.
- Amino acids – enhanced brain health, muscle recovery.
- B vitamins – attention, focus, and energy.
- Magnesium – supports every cell of the body, athletic performance, and recovery.
- Zinc and selenium – supports the thyroid, immune system, and body healing.
- Glutathione – anti-aging, anti-cancer, a preventative nutrient for diseases.

How long does IV Therapy Take?
IV Therapy can take anywhere from 45 min. – 90 min. depending on the ingredients of your drip. The IV lounge at Hawaii Natural Medicine offers reclined chairs with floor to ceiling windows overlooking the beautiful Nu’uanu Mountains.
Does IV Drip Therapy Hurt?
The procedure is quite painless. IV Drips are administered directly into a vein in your arm with a catheter and needle, the needle is removed, leaving just the catheter taped in place.
At IV lounges, like the one offered at Hawaii Natural Medicine, you can relax and kick your feet up in comfortable lounge chairs for the duration of your drip therapy. You even have the freedom to take your IV to the restroom if needed.
The only pain you might feel is the quick few seconds it takes to insert the needle, just like donating blood at a blood bank.
How does IV Therapy Work for Anti Aging?
Anti Aging IV Drips can be very effective because of their antioxidant effects with powerful doses of vitamin C and glutathione that protects against free radicals and prevent cell damage.
Glutathione is the most powerful anti-aging treatment and is the only intracellular (acts inside the cells) antioxidant found. This neutralizes free radicals allowing antioxidants to stay in their active form. There are also benefits that protect against a wide range of diseases and support memory and brain health.
How Does IV Therapy Work for Weight Loss?
Weight Loss IV Drips work by reducing body fat with a mixture of B vitamins, carnitine, and fat burners known as MIC.
B vitamins are effective for weight loss by boosting your energy and helping you to increase metabolism. They are also essential to healthy new cell growth and supports the nervous system reducing body stress. Body stress is one of the main factors in weight gain.
The fat burner, MIC (Methionine, Inositol, Choline) supports your liver to burn exported fat for additional energy, prevents excess fat buildup, aids in metabolism and appetite, and promotes the breakdown of fat cells for energy.
Carnitine is responsible for the transportation of fats into cells for energy. By increasing the efficiency of transportation your body has the ability to burn more fat for energy resulting in increased physical performance and weight loss.
