Intravenous (IV) infusion therapy, often called simply IV therapy, is a treatment in which health-promoting substances like vitamins and minerals are delivered into a patient’s veins. IV therapy may provide many benefits, such as improving immune system function, boosting energy, and treating illnesses like anxiety and chronic fatigue syndrome.
At Grand Rapids Men’s Health Clinic, we offer our patients many types of IV infusion therapy that may provide a variety of health benefits. The therapeutic cocktails are administered through the veins to ensure that the nutrients get directly to the organs without having to pass through the digestive system. This ensures that the highest possible doses of the nutrients are available for the patient’s body to use.
We offer the Quench, Recovery & Performance, Get Up & Go, Immunity, and Myers cocktails. All are formulated by the Olympia compounding pharmacy, a leading facility in creation of safe, effective, and restorative IV therapy kits.
The Quench IV therapy contains a high dose of vitamin C, which may have many benefits, including:
The Quench treatment also includes B vitamins for energy, immune health, and mood regulation. It also includes a mineral blend designed to contribute to bone health, immune health, and cognition.

In addition to these benefits, preliminary research indicates that glutathione IV infusion therapy may be helpful for treating the following conditions:

Often called IV infusion therapy or IV therapy, intravenous (IV) therapy is a treatment in which health-promoting substances are delivered into a patient’s veins.
Intravenous vitamin therapy is a type of IV infusion therapy that provides high doses of vitamins directly into a patient’s veins. The most common vitamin in IV infusion therapy is vitamin C, but the B vitamins, especially B12, may also be used.
IV therapy procedures may be able to treat many illnesses—such as Parkinson’s disease, migraines, and depression—by providing nutrients intravenously (into the vein). By bypassing the digestive system, IV infusion therapy allows for the maximum absorption of the nutrients. Many types of this therapy are available, and provide patients with nutrients like glutathione, vitamin C, and calcium.
