IV Drips

Why IV Drip? Why not just eat healthier?

While we always encourage our patients to maintain a healthy lifestyle, sometimes life’s hecticness can find its way; a big celebration of overnight partying, an extremely demanding work project leading to days of take outs and junk food. During this time period, you might find it hard-pressed to maintain the optimal nutrition that your body actually needs.

An IV drip can help your body recover from those moments and provide your body with the nutrients it needs.

 Did You Know

A study reported that your body absorbs only 23% of the drugs and supplements you intake orally. On the other hand, 90% of the nutrients from an IV drip are absorbed. This is why if your body has a nutrient deficiency, an IV drip may be recommended to get the much-needed nutrients into your body as opposed to using supplements.


Tailored and made just for you

At OT&P, we are able to create an IV drip bag that contains the nutrients that work best for you and tackle the problems that need to be addressed. Common problems that an IV drip can help includes:

Diet Boosting
Bespoke IV
Sports Recovery
Long Covid
Long Covid
Post Viral Fatigue

  • Magnesium


    Magnesium is an important mineral, playing a role in over 300 enzyme reactions in the human body. Its many functions include helping with muscle and nerve function, regulating blood pressure, and supporting the immune system.

    Mechanism of Action

    During exercise, carbohydrates, fats, and protein are broken down sequentially to provide energy and support muscle movement. The underlying mechanism of Mg-induced strength improvement is possibly due to the function of Mg in protein synthesis and energy metabolism, contributing to the process of muscle contraction and relaxation. Additional Mg supply may decrease the oxygen requirements for muscle cells during exercise, leading to optimization of physical movements.

    Potential Benefits

    • Improve exercise performance
    • Decrease the accumulation of lactate (high lactate levels means insufficient oxygen reaching muscles)
    • Increase muscle strength
  • Vitamin C (Ascorbic Acid)

    Vitamin C (Ascorbic Acid)

    OT&P offers a medical grade high dose vitamin C. Vitamin C is a water-soluble vitamin, antioxidant, and essential co-factor for collagen biosynthesis, carnitine and catecholamine metabolism, and dietary iron absorption.

    Mechanism of Action

    Ascorbic acid functions as a cofactor, enzyme complement, co-substrate, and powerful antioxidant in various reactions and metabolic processes. It also stabilizes vitamin E and folic acid and enhances iron absorption. It neutralizes free radicals and toxins as well as attenuates inflammatory responses, including sepsis syndrome.

    Potential Benefits

    • Stimulates production of collagen and elastin
    • Anti-cancer properties
    • Helps prevent iron deficiency
    • Boosts natural immunity
    • Development and repair of all body tissues
    • Protects cells against oxidative damage
  • Vitamin B Complex

    Vitamin B Complex

    Vitamin B complex is the term for a group of B vitamins that our body needs for optimal health. Because they are water soluble (dissolve in water) instead of fat soluble, they are not stored in our bodies and need to be obtained daily from our diet or supplements, although in small amounts.1 B vitamins impact appetite, vision, skin, nerves, and red blood cell formation.1 The vitamin B complex includes: B1 (Thiamin), B2 (Riboflavin), B3 (Niacin), B5 (Pantothenic Acid), B6 (Pyridoxine), B7 (Biotin), B9 (Folate), B12 (Cobalamin)

    Mechanism of Action

    B vitamins act as coenzymes in a substantial proportion of the enzymatic processes that underpin every aspect of cellular physiological functioning. As a coenzyme the biologically active form of the vitamin binds within a protein “apoenzyme” creating a “holoenzyme”, thereby increasing the resultant enzyme’s competence in terms of the diversity of reactions that it can catalyze. In this role, the B vitamins play key interacting roles in many cellular functions.

    Potential Benefits

    • Support cell health
    • Sustain growth of red blood cells.
    • Maintain energy levels.
    • Improve brain function.
    • Regulate appetite and digestion
    • Promote proper nerve function
  • Vitamin B12

    Vitamin B12

    Vitamin B12 also known as cobalamin, comprises several forms including cyano-, methyl-, deoxyadenosyl- and hydroxy-cobalamin. Vitamin B12 is essential for DNA synthesis and for cellular energy production.

    Mechanism of Action

    Vitamin B12 is bound to protein in food and is available for absorption after it has been cleaved from protein by the hydrochloric acid produced by the gastric mucosa. The released cobalamin then attaches to R protein and passes into the duodenum where the R protein is removed, and free cobalamin binds to Intrinsic Factor (IF). The IF-cobalamin complex is absorbed by the distal ileum and requires calcium. Vitamin B12 enters the circulation about 3–4 hours later bound to the plasma binding proteins.

    Potential Benefits

    • Assists in normal functioning of the brain and nervous system
    • Protect cognitive functioning (ability to think)
    • Form red blood cells and prevent anemia
    • Create and regulate DNA
    • Prevent congenital abnormalities 
    • Protect the eyes from macular degeneration
    • Produce energy
