IV Drip For Digestion

There are many people who suffer from digestive system issues and cannot absorb vitamins or minerals properly. IV Drip Therapy allows the nutrients to bypass this issue by being directly infused into your blood stream.

IV Drip to help with Digestion is a great way to optimize your body’s nutrient absorption process and help you feel better if suffering from any of the following ailments: IBS, leaky gut syndrome or multiple food sensitivities.

The nutrients in this IV Drip has been shown to reduce digestive inflammation while replenishing key vitamins.

IV Drip for Digestion has a few key objectives with each treatment: 

  • Anti-inflammatory which reduces inflammation and helps you absorb nutrients
  • Targeted nutrients specific for GI healing 
  • Helps reduce GI pain & cramping

Unless specified, every IV Drip at Higher Health starts with the following base ingredients before we add on for your specific goal:

  • Vitamin C
  • Magnesium
  • Calcium 
  • Trace Minerals (Chromium, Copper, Manganese, Selenium, Zinc) 
  • B Vitamins (B1,B2, B3, B5, B6, B12)
  • Amino Acids (which promote cellular repair and optimal function)

To help target Digestion issues, an IV drip for digestion issues will also include the following:

Glutamine – Glutamine strengthens the barrier that is present in our intestinal tract, and reduces inflammation, both of which helps to prevent leaky gut. It improves the immune function of our GI system which is important for overall health. Glutamine is beneficial for food sensitivities (by addressing inflammation) and is a key

ingredient for chronic GI conditions, including IBS, Crohn’s, and colitis

Taurine – Taurine plays a large role in digestion and metabolism. It supports the liver in producing bile salts which break down fatty acids, primarily cholesterol, in the intestine. It improves the digestion and absorption of fats.

Selenium – Selenium can help improve digestion and reduce malabsorption in the GI tract. It strengthens the gut’s response to inflammation, preventing damage to the gut lining. Deficiencies in selenium are correlated to higher oxidative damage in the GI tract, which can lead to different various GI disorders.

Zinc – Zinc is a critical mineral for a healthy gut. It has shown to be beneficial in treating conditions such as diarrhea and leaky guy. It helps stabilize the gut lining and promote repair of gut tissue.

Bicarbonate – Bicarbonate helps to neutralize acidic environments to our GI tract, which has a protective effect on our guy lining. It is also a key anti-inflammatory nutrient used in your IV treatment. 

Amino Acids – Amino acids are fuel for the lining of the small intestine and are the building blocks of our intestinal proteins. There is research to support several amino acids for gut-related diseases, as they support gut lining integrity and overall function. 

Frequency of Treatment:

How often you receive an IV drip will depend on the individual aspects gathered in your initial consultation. 

In general, we recommend an intro frequency of weekly for 4-6 weeks for full benefit, while monitoring your progress and adjusting accordingly. 


Consider IV therapy as a beneficial component for optimal GI health and healing! 


While some clients will do an IV Drip as a stand alone treatment for Digestion, we usually recommend IV Drip Therapy as part of a treatment plan that also includes making the most out of your preferred diet, supplements, and lifestyle choices.
