Why the IV? Intravenous therapy bypasses the stomach and GI tract and delivers nutrients directly into the bloodstream. Clinical testing has shown that we only absorb about 15-20% of vitamins taken orally, but with IV infusions, it’s 100%.
Oral supplementation is subject to the “first-pass effect,” which means that anything that goes through your stomach, has to survive the acidity of the stomach, then survive the massive array of enzyme systems in your liver. This often reduces the actual vitamins and nutrients entering your system to miniscule amounts. In contrast, intravenous, intramuscular, or subcutaneously administered nutrients avoid this problem.
PSI has several options for IV Infusions, catered to specific purposes and individuals.
The Immune Infusion promotes healing and replenishes energy. The Immune Infusion contains vitamins, minerals, amino acids and antioxidants that are administered intravenously and provide immediate delivery of these nutrients at the cellular level. The Immune Infusion helps with the treatment of a range of ailments:
Respiratory tract infections
Chronic sinusitis, and seasonal allergies
Chronic fatigue syndrome
The Immune Infusion has been modified from Dr. Myers’ original formula by adding greater doses of the B-Complex vitamins that improve energy, neurotransmitter function, and carbohydrate metabolism. Ornithine is an amino acid added to support immune function and has been shown to aid in cancer prevention in clinical studies. The formula also contains additional Vitamin C, which is a powerful antioxidant. Vitamin C is also contains anti-bacterial, anti-viral, and anti-histamine properties and is a powerhouse immune booster.
There is no question that delivering specific combinations of nutrients and amino-acids will improve performance and recovery. Our Sports Performance Infusion will help athletes to:

Philippi Sports Institute, along with Dr Julio Garcia, has developed a safe and effective sport performance IV infusion specifically for athletes. The Sports Performance Infusion increases nitric oxide production and blood flow. Our amino acid blend of L-ornithine, L-Arginine, and L-Citrulline stimulates growth hormone levels and increases blood flow to the muscular system for optimal energy, performance, and recovery gains.
