Having a sluggish metabolism is one of the biggest reasons for weight gain and difficulty with losing weight. Metabolism is a process where the body burns the food and drinks a person has consumed and converts it into energy.

Factors that can cause the body’s metabolism to slow down:

  • Unhealthy food choices
  • Vitamin deficiencies
  • Hormone imbalance issues
  • Food allergies
  • Metabolic disorders
  • Inactive lifestyle
  • Age and gender
  • Genetic predisposition
  • Stress
  • Lack of sleep
  • Effects of certain medications
  • Hypothyroidism
  • Cushing’s disease
  • Body size and composition

People who need to lose weight often try a variety of diet and exercise plans with little or no success. One of the reasons for this is that the typical restricted calorie diet burns muscle rather than fat. This leaves the dieter feeling weak, hungry, and fatigued. Others turn to prescription or non-prescription drugs to help curb their appetite so they can stick with a diet. Although people can lose weight with nearly any type of diet, many also cause nutritional deficiencies, reduced immunity, and mood swings in addition to fatigue and weakness.

Yo-yo dieting is when a person loses weight, regains the amount he or she lost plus more, loses weight again, and repeats the pattern indefinitely. The constant fluctuation of body weight is almost as bad for a person’s health as the problems caused by excess weight in the first place. These include an increased risk of diabetes, heart attack, cancer, and many other serious illnesses. Excess weight also takes an emotional toll, resulting in low self-esteem, depression, and anxiety in many people. For those who have tried numerous diet plans and are still overweight, Intravenous (IV) Therapy may be the answer.

How IV Therapy Increases Metabolism

IV Drips and IV Infusions for weight loss typically involves some combination of magnesium, Vitamin B Complex, Vitamin C, Calcium D-Gluconate, gingko biloba, calcium, thiamine, glutathione, and carnitine. The patient receives the nutrients through an IV line while relaxing for about 30 minutes. One of the most important benefits of receiving IV Therapy for weight loss purposes is that it helps to control hunger and stabilize blood sugar. These are essential elements of success with any weight loss attempt.

Besides boosting metabolism, IV Therapy with the above nutrients can help to resolve digestion issues and food allergies that make it nearly impossible for some people to lose weight. That is because these conditions block the normal absorption of nutrients, regardless of the nutritional content of the food. Along with regular sessions of IV Therapy, those who are interested in losing weight must commit to healthy eating and regular exercise.

Role of Essential Nutrients in a Weight Loss IV Drip


Calcium is found in foods and beverages such as leafy green vegetables, yogurt, fortified orange juice, and low-fat milk. Unfortunately, many Americans don’t get nearly enough calcium from the foods and drinks they consume. The lack of calcium lowers natural immunity in addition to slowing down the metabolism. Replenishing the body’s lost calcium can improve both health issues.


This nutrient enables the body to absorb, digest, and utilize carbohydrates, fats, and proteins. Adequate levels of magnesium are necessary for the body’s glucose and insulin levels to remain stable. When the body has the magnesium it needs, it prevents the genes responsible for obesity from developing fully. Along with the B Complex vitamin, magnesium is an energy nutrient. The lack of it causes the improper utilization of food along with food cravings and the tendency to overeat. Both calcium and magnesium can build muscle as well as improve metabolism.


This nutrient helps to rid the body of toxins, boost fat burning capabilities, and improve the nutritional value the body receives from food. As an amino acid, glutathione helps to synthesize Vitamin D, Vitamin E, and Selenium. It removes the toxins from the diet as well as those stored inside of fat cells. When glutathione is deficient, the body tends to store these toxins and make weight loss difficult.


Also known as B1, this nutrient also helps the body process carbohydrates, fats, and proteins. It is naturally present in a variety of foods, although the cooking process sometimes destroys it. Thiamine plays an important role in turning food into energy. When people remain active, it helps to burn calories while also improving muscle tone. However, a sedentary lifestyle causes the benefit of thiamine to be lost because the body stores the calories received from food as fat instead.

IV Therapy for weight loss has also proven effective at boosting energy, mood, and the body’s natural immunity to disease.
