What Are IV Therapy Bars?

IV Bar

Intravenous (IV) therapy is a voluntary therapy in which people receive a mixture of vitamins and supplements to help tackle an ailment. It used to be available only in hospitals, but IV bars are growing in popularity.

What Is an IV Bar?

An IV lounge or bar is a place that offers numerous types of intravenous fluids, vitamins and medicines that are targeted to a patient’s needs. A trained medical professional uses an IV drip to provide patients with vitamins and supplements to help treat the symptoms of:

  • Hangovers
  • Fatigue
  • Flu symptoms
  • Jet lag
  • Dehydration

Unlike hospitals, which provide IV drips only when a doctor deems it necessary, an IV bar allows you to seek out these potent vitamins and minerals yourself to take advantage of their benefits.

Some IV therapies are also available remotely, meaning that the medical professional will bring the IV drip and appropriate vitamins and medicines to your home or office.


What Can I Get at an IV Bar?

At an IV lounge, you can get a variety of vitamins and medicine, including:

  • B vitamins: This set of vitamins with many benefits, including to help boost the immune system, maintain cardiovascular health and help turn food into energy.
  • Vitamin B12: Sometimes included in the B vitamins, B12 is essential for forming red blood cells and is even known to boost brain function.
  • Vitamin C: An antioxidant that helps the body’s natural antioxidants to regenerate, vitamin C helps boost immune response and can slow the aging process.
  • Magnesium: Magnesium is useful for regulating blood pressure and is also essential for creating DNA and RNA in the body.
  • Glutathione: Studies suggest that glutathione can play a role in preventing degenerative diseases like Alzheimer’s, and it’s known to slow down the speed of aging.
  • NSAIDs: Studies show that non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) may be better than opioids for managing post-operative pain.
  • Zinc: This element is crucial for a healthy immune system and for helping wounds heal, and a zinc deficiency can make a person susceptible to illnesses and diseases.
  • Myers’ Cocktail: This mixture of vitamins and minerals, including magnesium and B vitamins, is known to alleviate symptoms of asthma, fibromyalgia and other disorders.

IV bars can also provide mixtures of various vitamins as needed. For example, if you wanted a Myers’ Cocktail but also wanted to add in B12, you can add it in at an additional cost to get exactly what your body needs.

The vitamins and supplements can help alleviate symptoms of various ailments, like hangovers or allergies, as well as of certain illnesses and diseases. An IV is also excellent for anyone who is dehydrated or has difficulty getting the necessary vitamins orally.

How Much Do IV Bars Cost?

Generally, the cost of an IV drip ranges in the low hundreds of dollars. The cost of the treatment depends on what type of IV drip you’re buying. Additional vitamins or supplements usually do have an additional cost, making it easier for you to create an IV treatment that specifically targets your needs.

The dosage is also a consideration when it comes to the cost of IV bars, with certain IVs generally being most costly than others. For example, one more expensive addition is NAD+, a form of the naturally occurring enzyme Nicotinamide Adenine Dinucleotide, which has been used since the ’60s to help deal with symptoms of drug and alcohol withdrawal.

The good news is you can often buy memberships for IV therapy, allowing you to take advantage of benefits and discounts for your treatments.

Benefits and Uses of IV Bars

The main benefit of IV bars is the ease with which you can get relief from uncomfortable or painful symptoms. With IV bars, you can alleviate symptoms from:

  • Migraines
  • Nausea or vomiting
  • Food poisoning
  • Jet lag
  • Hangovers
  • Acute asthma
  • Anxiety

Weight loss is another potential benefit of IV drips when used in conjunction with diet and exercise because it can boost the metabolism and help the body break down fat and calories easily.

IV therapy is also useful for general energy-boosting, especially when B12 is included in the therapy. This is especially useful for alleviating symptoms of hangovers, which leave you dehydrated and groggy.

People who are dehydrated also benefit from IV therapy. IVs get fluids into the body much more quickly than orally since IVs bypass the digestive tract. Keeping hydrated is also important for weight loss, as a lack of hydration results in less energy for the body to metabolize food, making weight loss harder.

The cost of IV treatments can also be a benefit when compared to the cost of seeing a doctor in the emergency room (ER). For approximately the cost of an ER co-pay, you can take advantage of IV bars without waiting hours to see a doctor and get a prescription. This makes it a better and cost-effective option for mild illnesses, like food poisoning.

In fact, you don’t even need to leave your home to take advantage of IV bars.


Do Mobile IV Bars Exist?

The short answer is yes. Most IV bars have a physical location that acts as the main office and offer at-home or at-office services. Others are 100% remote and provide all the benefits and perks of a stationary IV bar.

While stationary IV bars are great for some, not everyone is able or willing to commute to the location when they’re feeling sick or hungover, which is why 100% remote IV bars, like Rocky Mountain IV Medics, are extremely useful.
