Specific IV Therapy Benefits and Effects

It is now well-known that amino acids, vitamins, and minerals can do a lot to relieve stress and anxiety. When we suffer anxiety, the cause is often an imbalance of neurotransmitters, which send signals to our brain that influence our mood. These neurotransmitters are actually made up of amino acids, but amino acids themselves are not enough. Amino acids need coenzymes and cofactors in order to properly function. These coenzymes and cofactors are vitamins, particularly the B vitamins, and minerals like zinc, magnesium, copper, and manganese.

Without these cofactors, the body cannot turn the amino acids it has into the neurotransmitters it needs. The problem is especially profound in people who aren’t getting essential vitamins and minerals from a highly varied diet of organic, nutrient-dense fruits and vegetables. We all strive to eat well, but getting enough quality organic food can be expensive and difficult, and simply finding the time to prepare a properly nutritious diet every day can be nearly impossible in the modern developed world.

It is impossible here to list all the many benefits of every ingredient in the Stress and Anxiety Relief infusion, but consider a few examples:


Many anti-anxiety drugs seek to increase the body’s production of the neurotransmitter GABA. GABA itself is formed from glutamine, and glutamine supplementation for relief of fear, anxiety, and stress is a promising area for modern therapy studies.

L-arginine and L-lysine

Supplementation of these two amino acids has been shown to reduce chronic anxiety and lower levels of stress hormones in the body.


Taurine has multiple anxiety-reducing effects. We have already noted that anti-anxiety drugs seek to promote GABA production in the body, and Taurine increases the production of GABA (with the help of vitamin B6) and makes GABA receptors more sensitive, thereby quieting the opposing NMDA receptors that enhance feelings of stress and anxiety. Taurine also inhibits the flow of adrenaline, which helps suppress the “fight-or-flight” signals that cause us to feel stressed and anxious.


Glutathione is a powerful antioxidant, much like vitamin C; but unlike vitamin C, its effects are more targeted. It specifically protects the brain against the effects of oxidative stress.
