All About Inflammation Add-Ons

If you're looking for a way to reduce inflammation, consider adding an inflammation add-on to your IV therapy.

Inflammation add-ons are designed to help improve your body's natural response to inflammation. In this blog post, we'll discuss the benefits of IV therapy and how it can help to reduce inflammation (like for Guillain Barre Syndrome). We'll also provide a list of inflammation add-ons that are available for IV infusion therapy.

About the Inflammation in Your Body

Inflammation is the body’s natural healing response to tissue damage – it helps to fight injury and infection. If you suffer from inflammation, you know that it impacts your daily life. This is an unfortunate reality for many people. Inflammation and chronic pain can occur due to a variety of reasons, such as illness or injury that causes long-lasting damage without improvement over time. Our friends at Stark Health suggest working with a neuromuscular specialist to reduce any pain and limitations to prevent further injuries.

About IV Infusion Therapy

With today’s innovative medications, you can receive biologics through intravenous (IV) infusion therapy. IV therapy treatments can significantly relieve pain and improve function.

The proper IV therapy works to boost your immune system, encouraging it to heal these areas and reduce the inflammation that is present. Nutrients like magnesium, calcium, Vitamin C, and B vitamins can help to fight off inflammation and damage.

IV infusion Add-ons

At Drip IV, we offer add-ons to your IV infusion therapy just for inflammation. Some of our most popular add-ons to help reduce inflammation that is present are Glutathione, Zinc, Folic Acid and ALA.

Glutathione (gloo·tuh·thai·own)

Glutathione is a tripeptide made up of three amino acids, cysteine, glycine, and glutamic acid. It is produced by the liver and involved in many body processes. Glutathione is involved in tissue building and repair, making chemicals and proteins needed in the body, and in immune system function. Glutathione is found in every cell of the body and helps to protect cells from damage. It acts as an antioxidant and helps to reduce inflammation.


Zinc is another mineral that is beneficial for reducing inflammation. Zinc helps your immune system, metabolism function, and to regulate enzymes. Zinc plays an important role in cell mediated immunity and is also an antioxidant and anti-inflammatory agent. 

Folic Acid

Folic acid, or folate, is the natural form of vitamin B9, water-soluble and naturally found in many foods. Folate is also needed to produce healthy red blood cells and is critical during periods of rapid growth, such as during pregnancy and fetal development. Low folate levels are commonly seen in chronic inflammatory diseases, indicating that inadequate folate may be involved in inflammatory conditions. This indicates that folic acid can reduce inflammation and offer protection from some diseases.

Alpha-lipoic Acid

ALA, or alpha-lipoic acid, is an organic compound in our bodies that acts as an antioxidant that helps to protect cells from damage. While the body produces alpha-lipoic acid (ALA) naturally, humans can only produce ALA in small amounts. ALA is crucial for optimal health and wellness. Alpha-lipoic acid not only helps with digestion and absorption and turns the body's nutrients into energy. Additionally, ALA serves as an anti-inflammatory, improving symptoms of pain, such as osteoperosis, and reducing the level of inflammation.

Drip IV Can Help You
