Get an IV for Immune Support
A strong immune system is your secret weapon for conquering colds and flu. When germs (also called antigens) invade your system, the immune response produces immune cells and antibodies to counteract them. But a weak immune system can’t mount a good defense, which makes you more likely to get sick.
IV therapy can be an effective way to support your immune system and reinforces a strong sense of health and well-being. Mobile IV Nurses offers high-quality IV therapy to help you feel better and get your health back on track.
Strategies for Building Up Your Immune System
IV therapy for immune system support works especially well when it is complemented by healthy lifestyle habits. There are several ways to keep your immune system in top shape, including:
- Eating a healthy, whole-food diet
- Exercising regularly
- Reducing stress
- Avoiding tobacco
- Getting enough sleep every night
Cultivating these habits is particularly important as we age because our immune response diminishes over time.
An IV for immune support can deliver positive effects you notice right away, especially when you’re trying to rebound from an illness. That’s because IV fluids are rich with vitamins and minerals that can help ease symptoms associated with colds and flu, such as headaches or nausea. These nurturing fluids are infused into your bloodstream for rapid absorption. This means they get to work faster than an oral tablet or pill, which must first work its way through the digestive system. An IV drip to support your immune system can be an effective pick-me-up.
Immune System-Supporting Ingredients
Mobile IV Nurses offers a wide selection of immune system-supporting ingredients. As listed in our IV packages above, vitamins and minerals such as vitamin C, vitamin D, B complex, and B12 can have great effects on your immune system.
For example, vitamin D is well known for helping your immune system fight off bacteria and viruses. Vitamin C also plays a key role in your body’s immunity, supporting the cellular functions of the innate and adaptive immune system. Of course, these are just a few of the benefits of IV therapy.
Conditions that can benefit from IV therapy for immune support
IV therapy does much more than just relieve symptoms. It can also play a role in maintaining your immune system over the long term, as well as reducing the duration of common illnesses such as influenza and colds.
It’s well known that vitamin support helps you with the common cold. IV therapy is one of the best ways to effectively feed your body with vitamins. IV therapy allows your body to absorb more nutrients at a faster rate than with oral supplements. The speed and efficiency of IV treatment translate to quicker benefits and shorter bouts of colds, the flu, and even hangovers.
Immune support IV therapy is also good for issues such as fatigue, dehydration, seasonal allergies, and even recovering from injuries. In general, the support you get from the nutrients in your IV therapy will help you get into optimal health.
Immune Support in Athletes
Athletes must have a healthy immune system to perform well in their respective sports. Suffering from even mild symptoms can mean losing that critical competitive edge you need to excel in your sport.
Because you need to avoid illness to excel as an athlete, there is a strong relationship between immune support and athletic performance. If you’re an athlete and you need extra support for your immune system, you might want to try supplementing your diet with the benefits of IV therapy.
IV treatments such as the Myers’ Cocktail and The Immune IV Package offer your body core nutrients such as vitamin C, vitamin D, and zinc. Plus, with IV therapy, your body will absorb more of these nutrients than when administered orally.
There are some potential risks for athletes, especially if they are already using supplements. You can potentially have too many of some nutrients in your body, such as vitamin A and potassium, causing adverse effects. Too many nutrients can also interfere with your electrolyte balance. If you’re concerned about any of these issues, please consult your doctor before starting IV therapy.
The Ideal IV Therapy for the Immune Support
We recommend a Myers’ Cocktail if you want to support your immune response. It’s a proven combination of high-powered ingredients that supply your body with energy while also reducing the fatigue you feel when you’re sick.
The Myers’ Cocktail consists of:
Vitamin C is an immunity powerhouse, while the B vitamins recharge you by elevating your energy level. Magnesium and the antioxidant glutathione both assist the immune system in carrying out its function, while zinc helps your immune system fight off bacteria and viruses that might make you sick.
A Myers’ Cocktail on its own is great for the immune system, but Mobile IV Nurses lets you customize your drip IV with supplemental ingredients depending on your symptoms. Try adding anti-nausea medication if you’re fighting the flu, or choose the Ultimate Myers' Cocktail IV, with 5,000 mg of vitamin C and 1,000 mg of glutathione.

Immune Support IV Therapy Frequently Asked Questions
There are two things that make IV therapy for your immune system so effective: the quantity of the dose and the speed at which it works.
When you take oral supplements or cold and flu medications, you need to digest the supplement before your body can use it. This delays the effects, but it also leads to a smaller quantity of nutrients in your system. In fact, oral medications and supplements are only around 50% bioavailable!
When you get an IV immune support, the treatment bypasses your digestive system and sends the nutrients directly into your bloodstream. This results in around 90% bioavailability, which means you get a lot more benefits.
And because the IV puts those nutrients right into your system, there’s no delay in relieving your symptoms! You can start feeling better right away and have lasting relief from your worst cold and flu symptoms.
Of course! Many people think of immune system support as a way to avoid getting sick (which they are), but they are also effective when you’re already feeling those cold and flu symptoms. After all, your immune system is on overdrive when you get sick.
When you’re already sneezing and feverish, your IV treatment helps your immune system fight off the existing germs in your body. This can help you heal faster, but it also helps mitigate the common symptoms you experience during an illness like fatigue, headache, aches, and pains. Add some anti-nausea medication or other ingredients, and you’ll be feeling good as new before you know it.
A: When you get an IV treatment like a Myers’ Cocktail, it can provide your body with increased hydration and vitamin levels for up to two weeks. However, each person is different and will process them differently. In many cases, this is enough immune system support to get you through your illness and back to feeling your best.
However, you can always get additional IV treatments if your symptoms aren’t subsiding. This can even be extra beneficial if your illness causes vomiting or diarrhea, as you can easily become dehydrated with these conditions. It is safe to get IV therapy for your immune system frequently depending on your medical history and health status, especially with the professionals from Mobile IV Nurses there to assist you.
IV therapy is generally very safe, but there are some side effects that can occur. Mobile IV Nurses makes your safety to be a top priority, so alert your IV provider if you experience any of the following during your IV immune therapy session:
- Redness, swelling, or soreness at the injection site
- Vein inflammation
Our team will do everything they can to manage your symptoms and give you the best possible IV experience, so you can enhance your immune system and be your healthiest self.
