The Science of IV Nutrition: Is Your Brain Getting the Fuel It Needs?

Everyday, your brain formulates thoughts, stores memories, enables movement and regulates your body— it works hard 24/7, even while you’re asleep. To efficiently control everything from your heart rate to your mood, your brain requires a very high nutrient demand.

On average, your brain consumes 20% of your daily caloric intake, or approximately 400 calories per day. This means that your brain needs a constant supply of “fuel”, or nutrients and what’s in that fuel makes all the difference—which nutrients your body absorbs directly affects the structure and function of your brain and, ultimately, your mood.

It’s no surprise that your brain functions best when it gets premium fuel. Research has shown that certain vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants can nourish the brain and even protect it from inflammation and oxidative stress.

However, over the past several generations small, seemingly insignificant changes to the American diet have stripped it of many key, anti-inflammatory nutrients as well as some very special fats—that are essential for happy, well-balanced brains. Modern diets high in refined sugars, for example, have been correlated with impaired brain function — and even a worsening of symptoms of mood disorders, such as depression.

Not to mention, on a day-to-day basis, stress, absorption issues, certain medications and environmental factors can deplete your body’s vitamin supplies. So, it can be hard to know if you’re getting an adequate amount of water and essential nutrients from your diet.

Research conducted by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) found that nearly 10% of the U.S. population has a nutrient deficiency. The result? Fatigue, brain fog, mood disorders, chronic pain, accelerated aging, inflammation and even weight gain have all been associated with nutritional deficiencies.

At Neuro Wellness Spa, we understand that the mind and body should be treated as a connected system. That’s why we created our signature line of IV Nutrition Formulas + Vitamin Shots to help target stress, depression, anxiety and promote overall brain health. Unlike oral vitamins, our premium infusions bypass the digestive system, so nutrients are delivered directly to your bloodstream for rapid and complete absorption.

Our Menu

Our highly absorbable IV formulas and vitamin shots were carefully formulated for optimal mind-body function.

General Wellness

Bolster your energy, calm your sleep and balance your mood. This supercharged multi-vitamin is perfect for a mid-week boost or paired with glutathione so your body can cleanse and recovery naturally.

Stress Relief

Chronic dehydration and other nutritional deficiencies can affect mood and worsen feelings of stress and anxiety. We designed our Stress Relief Formula to help those with prolonged stress and anxiety unwind, recenter and ground so they can achieve an overall sense of calm.

High Dose Vitamin C

Whether it’s cold & flu season, the holidays or an important time for work or family, there’s nothing worse than feeling under the weather. Vitamin C has been linked to many impressive health benefits, such as boosting antioxidant levels, lowering blood pressure, improving iron absorption, boosting immunity, reducing heart disease and dementia risk and even as an adjunct to cancer care.

Alpha-Lipoic Acid

Alpha-lipoic acid (ALA) is a powerful antioxidant that works with the mitochondria—the body’s energy powerhouses— to boost metabolism, reduce inflammation and manage diabetes and reduce the symptoms of neuropathic pain.

Glutathione

Aging erodes the important anti-oxidant, Glutathione, which helps fight against free radicals and other harmful substances. However, glutathione cannot be absorbed from our diets. This mega-dose of glutathione works rapidly after being administered to detoxify, restore health and promote general feelings of wellness.

NAD+

NAD+ is a powerful coenzyme that boosts brain function, restores mental clarity, supports brain health and repair, promotes detoxification from drugs and alcohol and increases energy metabolism on a cellular level. However, our bodies’ NAD stores decrease with age and chronic illnesses and as NAD levels drop, cells become sluggish, signs of aging increase, and oxidative stress takes a toll.

We also provide our powerful vitamin shots for a quick and efficient boost. These instant pick-me-ups effectively restore energy, elevate your immunity, and heal mental and physical exhaustion from stress. We provide:

  • Vitamin B-12
  • B-Complex
  • Vitamin C
  • CoQ12
  • Fat Burner (MIC+B12)
