IV Vitamin Therapy was once associated with celebrities and jet-setting executives – but no longer! Across Britain, IV (intravenous) drips and shots are rising in popularity as people are literally injecting better health into their bodies to offset the impact of our tiring and toxic 21st century lifestyle.

IV Vitamin Therapy works fast by infusing vitamins and minerals directly into the bloodstream, delivering valuable nutrients directly to the cells. Hydration and nutrition delivered by IV is 100% absorbed by the body while large doses that cannot be tolerated orally can be taken up by the body intravenously.

The IV Boost Clinic took a snapshot view of 11 British cities to see who wants what from IV Therapy. From London to Leeds, Nottingham to Newcastle and Birmingham to Bristol these are the most sought-after IV drips and shots. Interestingly, rather than looking for beauty or vanity solutions, Britons are turning to IV drips to boost energy, vitality and immunity and fight fatigue.
