During weight loss, IV therapy can support healthy eating and exercise. These IVs don’t cause weight loss on their own — instead, they give your body extra nutrition while you make lifestyle changes. Weight loss IV therapy can help provide this support in numerous ways.

IV therapy can help you lose weight, but typically only when done with other weight-loss programs, such as a diet or workout. It’s a supplementary benefit to an existing health plan because it gives the body a boost of vitamins and minerals that help it function at its best. While it’s an aid for weight loss, IV therapy also has benefits, including effectively treating acute asthma, fatigue and even hangovers. 

The IV fluids are administered directly into your bloodstream. This way, they can completely bypass the digestive system and allow your body to quickly absorb all the necessary nutrients. What’s more, an infusion guarantees 100% nutrient absorption, compared to only 15-25% nutrients available through food or supplement ingestion.

You can expect the effects of this drip to last around two to three weeks, so there are some research which suggest to enhance your weight loss routine by taking the IV immunotherapy once or twice a month.


The primary benefit of IV drips is that they hydrate the body, and hydration is another way to aid metabolism. If the body is dehydrated, it cannot keep your energy levels up, and it needs that energy for burning fat. IV weight loss drips can’t replace drinking water, but they can help hydrate you to allow your body to function effectively.

Research suggests that MIC and l-carnitine could help you remove fat and build muscle. While MIC targets fatty deposits, l-carnitine reduces fat mass and enhances muscle mass.

Nutrients such as B vitamins help you maintain your energy levels by supporting cell and nerve health. Certain vitamin deficiencies can result in lower energy levels, making weight loss and daily function harder. By improving your vitamin intake with an IV, you can maintain your energy levels for healthy food preparation and exercise.

An IV provides immediate hydration through normal saline. The sodium chloride in this solution restores your electrolytes and increases the fluid that supports your cells. It allows the water in the IV to provide better hydration and delivers the IV nutrients to your system. Remember to drink plenty of water while you work toward your weight loss goals.

After physical activity, your body needs to rebuild tissue and restore fluids. A Myer’s Cocktail IV includes nutrients and hydration for better recovery after your exercise. Vitamins and minerals such as vitamin C and zinc help your body build new muscle as it heals from physical activity.

As you lose weight, your cells and tissues go through many processes that can benefit from nutrients that support them. Our IVs contain antioxidants and nutrients that promote cell growth to help your body adapt to the changes that happen during weight loss.

Methionine inositol choline (MIC) is often an ingredient of IV drips for weight loss. It can target fatty deposits and help the body burn these fats. While it’s useful in weight loss, using MIC or other fat-burning substances without a healthy weight-loss plan can end up being dangerous. 

Another ingredient of IV drips for weight loss is B vitamins, including B12, which provides a proven metabolism boost. The B vitamins have a range of benefits that aid weight loss. Most notably, they boost energy levels, which help metabolize fat more efficiently. Cardiovascular health is another benefit B vitamins provide, which is especially useful when maintaining a regular exercise routine.

Vitamin C is also usually in the mix of a weight-loss IV drip, providing support for muscle growth and muscle structure. It’s also a vitamin with known benefits to the circulatory system, which includes heart health and the ability to work out safely. 

Preoperative( laproscopic sleeve gastrectomy) diet with IV Immunonutrition formulas during 2 weeks achieves a greater preoperative weight loss, lower postoperative pain and lower values of CRP and liver enzymes than high-protein formulas or regular diet, all of them with similar caloric intake.
