The Most Popular Gains to Add to Your IV Bag

“What should I put in my IV Bag?” It’s one of the first questions that people have for us! The answer will depend on an individual’s unique needs or wellness goals. Our highly trained team works with each guest on every visit to craft an IV treatment suited to your needs & goals. This said we do have IV treatments & gains that are especially popular at our wellness clinic. Some add-ons can be used on the regular (and are often enjoyed by those who have a Monthly Membership) while others are used to address more specific goals. Keep reading to learn about our most popular gains that you can add to your IV bag, and what they will specifically treat.

Our Most Popular Gains

At Vida-Flo, we aim to provide targeted treatments that address your specific needs but also have gains that assist with general health and wellness. Those gains that have wide-ranging benefits are often our most recommended products.


An amazing antioxidant, Glutathione is useful for a wide range of needs & wellness goals. Your liver naturally produces it to help with a variety of bodily functions, as well as eliminate “free radicals”. Glutathione combats signs of aging and reduces the appearance of blemishes and dark marks. Boosts athletic performance and recovery. As well as reduces inflammation to promote healing. IV treatments with Glutathione are particularly beneficial because of better absorption – much is lost when taken orally.

B12, B Complex, & Vitamin C

At Vida-Flo, we add at least one of these key vitamins to almost every bag. Vitamins are essential nutrients the body uses for a variety of functions. Vitam B12, B Complex & Vitamin are powerhouses in supporting your immunity & creation of new, healthy cells. Why add them to your IV bag? Unlike a pill, there is no breakdown of nutrients, and there’s no wait time. Added directly to the bloodstream, your body will reap the full benefits (and full absorption) of the vitamin. As always, a member of our team will help you determine which IV add-ons align with your specific wellness goals.


Another popular IV therapy addition is Zofran. It is used for a variety of reasons, but to treat the same symptoms: nausea and vomiting. It works by blocking one of the body’s natural substances (serotonin) that causes vomiting. This makes it a great option for those who have overindulged in alcohol, as well as people who have food poisoning or are suffering from a stomach bug. It can also be used to prevent nausea and vomiting caused by cancer medicines.

Upgrade Your IV Bag

If you’re new to IV treatments & needing hydration, you may want to start simple. Instead, consider upgrading your bag. We offer the choice between IV fluids including Sodium Chloride Saline Solution and a Lactated Ringer Saline with Electrolytes. What’s the difference? While both are effective at increasing fluid volume in your body, one triumphs over the other. A Lactated Ringer contains essential electrolytes that your body needs to function, including your muscles, nerves, and organs. The difference between the two is similar to the difference between drinking water versus a Gatorade or Pedialyte.
