Almost everyone takes supplements nowadays, and for a good reason. These essential vitamins, minerals, amino acids, and medications can improve our lives in previously unimaginable ways. But far better than oral supplements is the powerful and effective IV therapy we offer at Metabolix Wellness Center in Clearwater, FL. At our clinic, you’ll find an extensive selection of safe, powerful, and effective IV solutions for every state of health.
What Is IV Therapy?
IV therapy, also known as intravenous therapy, is the most effective way to get vitamins and nutrients. In the last decade, more people than ever have taken control of their health through the use of supplements, but there are a lot of problems with the oral supplements we take.
Are You Supplementing the Right Way?
Vitamins and nutrients from food or supplements only work once they’ve entered the bloodstream. When you take supplements by mouth, all those feel-good nutrients must make a long, strenuous journey through the digestive system before arriving in the blood. Corrosive stomach acids, genetics, and other factors can prevent much of those nutrients you’ve ingested from absorbing into your blood.
For many people, this news is shocking. They can’t believe that they’ve been wasting valuable time and money on supplements that may not even make it to the absorption point. And even if those nutrients make it to the blood, it’s impossible to say how much of a dosage will survive the GI tract and genetic factors.
Stop Guessing With Your Supplements
Intravenous therapy takes all the guesswork out of dietary supplementation because nutrients are delivered to the bloodstream directly. This safe, clinically investigated technique gained worldwide acclaim in the 1970s when Dr. John Myers of Johns Hopkins Hospital developed the Myers’ Cocktail infusion therapy.
The Myers’ Cocktail liquid nutrient blend is still used today and proudly offered at Metabolix Wellness Center. It contains magnesium, calcium, B vitamins, and vitamin C to treat a wide variety of health conditions. The infusion options have only expanded in the last fifty years. Now, there are nutrient drips for nearly any situation you can imagine, from a hangover to improved athletic performance to mental health treatment.
What Can IV Therapy Do for Me?
Just like taking supplements orally, there is an IV infusion for nearly any condition or health objective you can imagine. During your consultation at Metabolix Wellness Center, we’ll discuss what you would like to achieve in therapy and create the ideal infusion for you. We also offer a variety of pre-developed blends suitable for a variety of conditions.
Alpha Lipoic Acid (ALA) IV
ALA is touted as the “universal antioxidant” that plays a substantial role in several metabolic processes, including cell metabolism and cellular energy production. This IV could be beneficial for stroke and other brain conditions.
Our anti-aging IV includes a potent mix of vitamins and antioxidants that boost collagen production and contribute to healthy aging. This IV supports and strengthens the brain, bones, connective tissue, skin, and energy levels.

Candida is a common fungal infection that wreaks havoc on the immune system, kidneys, liver, and brain. Many people are aware that Candida can live in the intestines and vaginal area, but you may not realize that it can live in any tissue of the body. Candida infection comes with a slew of unsavory symptoms that may resemble other conditions, making it sometimes difficult to treat. The Candida IV is part of a comprehensive treatment plan to remove the fungus and bring powerfully rejuvenating healing.

How Often Should I Have IV Therapy?
The frequency of your appointments depends on your wellness goals, expectations, and the therapy you’re seeking. Our clients find that regularly scheduled appointments allow them to reap the most benefits from treatment. Most plans offer weekly, bi-weekly, and monthly schedules. Our experts will help you establish a personalized therapy plan that best suits your needs.
There isn’t a one-size-fits-all approach to this intravenous treatment. We customize your therapy to meet your individual needs. Most immune-boosting supplements are safe to administer regularly, just as they are safe to take orally every day. Other treatments, like Ketamine, are only available after an in-person consultation with Dr. Agin.
Some IV protocols have specific requirements that deliver ideal results. For instance, our Anti-aging IV works best when used in a series of ten sessions. Detoxing with NAD requires a consecutive 3 to 14-day commitment. We’ll discuss your specific therapy plan at your consultation.
Am I a Good Candidate?
Nearly everyone is eligible to receive some form of IV treatment. We see clients of all health levels. All you need is a desire to feel good. Receiving this therapy when you feel well is the first line of defense against illness because it can boost your immune function. We welcome clients who are dehydrated or chronically ill, as they often experience significant improvements in vitality their feelings of wellness.
Individuals taking certain medications or who have kidney problems, liver problems, or congestive heart failure may be ineligible for intravenous therapy. The best way to find out if you are a candidate for your desired supplementation drip is to schedule an appointment with us.
