IV Drip as a Sleep Aid

The goal of the Sleep Aid IV Drip is very simple. To help you finally get a good night’s sleep!

Some of the key benefits of this IV Drip are:

  • Helps increase serotonin levels for better sleep quality and reduces symptoms of insomnia
  • Supports the production of key neurotransmitters involved in calming the nervous system
  • Helps activate the parasympathetic nervous system which helps with a sense of calmness and relaxation

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 sleep issues, an IV drip to help as a sleep aid will also include the following:

Glycine – Glycine increases serotonin levels, improves sleep quality, and reduces symptoms of insomnia. It has a calming effect on the brain and nervous system, which helps the body reach a deep sleep quickly. 

Taurine – Taurine helps to activate GABA receptors in the brain, resulting in a calming and anti-anxiety effect on the body. It is involved in creating melatonin, our sleep hormone. 

Bicarb – Bicarbonate helps to neutralize acidic environments in our cells and promotes detoxification. This can help to repair cells which is what our bodies do while we sleep.

Magnesium – Magnesium mimics the action of melatonin in the body by helping to improve sleep quality. It helps activate the parasympathetic nervous system which promotes a sense of calmness and relaxation. This is a must for any sleep aid protocol. 

Frequency of Treatment:

Your frequency of treatment will depend on individual aspects gathered in your initial consultation.

In general, the recommended frequency for sleep support is weekly or bi-weekly for 4-6 weeks, while monitoring your progress and adjusting accordingly.

Consider IV therapy as a beneficial component for treating sleep issues.
