At IV Drip Clinic in London, we specialize in providing customized intravenous (IV) vitamin and nutrient therapies to help our clients feel revitalized and address any nutritional deficiencies. But have you ever wondered exactly how these beneficial IV drips are made?

As the owner of IV Drip Clinic, I’m excited to provide an inside look at the step-by-step process we use to create our vitamin drips. Understanding how IV drips are formulated and administered can help you feel confident about the safety and efficacy of this treatment.

The Ingredients

All of our IV drips start with high quality ingredients sourced by licensed, accredited pharmaceutical suppliers. Depending on the customized recipe being made, our vitamin drips typically contain:

  • Vitamins – Like vitamin C, B vitamins, B12, and others which provide immune support, energy, improved mood, and aid metabolism.
  • Minerals – Such as magnesium, zinc, selenium. Minerals help enzyme function, nerve transmission, immunue health, and electrolyte balance.
  • Amino acids – Important amino acids like glutathione and l-carnitine assist with detoxification, protein synthesis, and muscle function.
  • Antioxidants – Antioxidants like alpha lipoic acid neutralize harmful free radicals and reduce inflammation.
  • Electrolytes – Electrolytes like potassium, calcium, chloride replenish important minerals lost through hydration and promote proper nerve and muscle function.

The licensed medical doctor on staff at our clinic carefully evaluates each client during a free consultation. This allows us to determine which ingredients and at what levels will be most beneficial for the client’s individual needs.

Making the Drip

Once our nurse has gathered and calculated the proper amounts of each ingredient based on the client’s custom prescription, the process of actually making the vitamin drip begins.

Here are the step-by-step procedures we follow:

  • In a sterile mixing environment, our nurse combines the ingredients into a sterile container and mixes thoroughly with sterile water for injection.
  • The mixture is then drawn into an empty IV bag using proper sterile transfer techniques including filtration through a 0.2 micron filter.
  • Sterile saline solution is added to the IV bag to dilute the ingredients to the desired concentrations.
  • The filled IV bag is labeled with the client’s name, ingredients, concentrations, and date mixed.
  • Prior to administering to a client, quality control visual inspections and pH tests are performed to ensure proper purity, clarity, and pH balance.

Our meticulous compounding procedures adhere to government regulations and guidelines for safety and accuracy. And our staff is highly trained and experienced with proper handling of pharmaceutical grade ingredients.

Administering the Drip

When a client comes into our clinic for their appointment, our nurses follow careful protocols to insert the sterile IV catheter and tubing into the client’s vein before starting the infusion.

The rate of infusion is controlled to maximize retention and client comfort. During the 30-60 minute treatment, clients relax on a comfortable chair or bed and can enjoy complimentary Wifi, blankets, and refreshments.

Our nurses monitor the client and the drip throughout the entire process. After the treatment is complete, the IV catheter is safely removed and bandaged, and the client is hydrated and ready to continue their day feeling their best.

For busy professionals who wish to enjoy our IV vitamin drips from the convenience of home or work, IV Drip Clinic offers our Mobile Drip service. Our nurse will bring the prescribed vitamin drip along with supplies and equipment directly to a client’s home or office for a private, relaxing experience.

No matter where they choose to meet with us, clients can feel at ease knowing our IV vitamin therapies are created and delivered with the highest standards of quality, care, and safety in mind.

The Benefits of Customized IV Drips

As you can see, while the equipment may look complex, when performed by licensed professionals, making and administering IV vitamin drips is a safe, sterile, and straightforward process. And the benefits our clients experience make it well worth it!

Unlike oral supplements which must be digested and absorbed through the GI tract, nutrients delivered intravenously are 100% bioavailable, delivering the ingredients quickly and directly into the bloodstream exactly where your body needs them.

The customized combinations allow targeted solutions to increase energy, fight illness, speed recovery, reduce stress, enhance beauty, and promote an overall sense of health and wellbeing.
