iv max-digest heal


  • Reduce Inflammation
  • Heal GI Mucosal Lining
  • Restore Nutrients


  • IBS, IBD
  • Leaky Gut, SIBO
  • Food Sensitivities
  • Digestive Diseases: H Pylori, Gastritis, GERD, Chron’s, Ulcerative Colitis


  • Tailored to you. Commonly once a week until therapeutic results are obtained (4-8 treatments)
  • Reassessment and then maintenance monthly.

This IV is designed to optimize nutrient absorption, reduce inflammation, and heal the digestive system. Helpful for those with H Pylori, GERD, IBS, leaky gut, SIBO, food sensitivities, Chron’s disease or Ulcerative Colitis. Selenium, zinc, and taurine promote cellular recovery with added nutrients to replenish deficiencies from diminished absorption.1-10


The digestive system is the foundation to overall health. This system includes a combination of nerves, hormones, immunity, bacteria, blood, and the organs of the digestive system that work together to complete digestion. Recent interest in the microbiome (the microbes that exist in the body) and friendly probiotics has increased the understanding of this important aspect of all health. Digestion begins in the brain. The hypothalamus, stimulates appetite and when you eat your brain decides if you will respond with stress or ease. To digest well, you need to be in the parasympathetic relaxed part of the nervous system for your body to release enzymes to help break down your foods. If you are busy rushing around or in the opposite sympathetic part of your nervous system your body can’t fully breakdown your food. The body tries to release more hydrochloric acid (HCL) to help you out.1 However excess HCL then leads to heartburn, bloating, gas, pain, “leaky bowel”, food intolerances or allergies. Other factors are associated GI diseases like IBS, SIBO, Colitis, or Chron’s. Thus, repairing the digestive system requires a multisystem approach to balance the brain, nervous system, immunity, hormones, microbiome, and organs of digestion.


Ingredients: B Vitamins, Vitamin C, Calcium, Magnesium, Selenium, Zinc, Taurine

  • B Vitamins are often depleted in those with GI concerns. B vitamins promote healing and work collectively; B1 is involved in production of stomach acid and muscle tone in the intestines; B2 enhances mucus membranes of the gut; B3 is involved in gastric juice and secretion of bile; B5 helps to keep the bowels moving; B6 supports serotonin reducing stress; Folate and B12 are vital for proper nerve signaling for digestive function11-13
  • Methyl B12 is an active form of B12 for increased bioavailability
  • Methyl Folate (5-methyl-tetrahydofolate) (L-5-methyl-THF) is an active form of folate
  • Vitamin C reduces inflammation, and increases collagen to heal the digestive lining.14
  • Calcium relaxes smooth muscles.
    Magnesium works with calcium to relax smooth muscles, calm the nervous system reducing the effects of stress, and increase energy.
  • Selenium helps to modify inflammation in the gut, promotes optimal glut flora and a deficiency is linked to a higher risk of IBD such as Chron’s and Ulcerative colitis1
  • Zinc helps to heal inflamed tissue, reduce intestinal permeability (“leaky gut”), and support immunity1,2
  • Taurine is an amino acid that research has shown to act to reduce H. pylori which may be present in those with gastritis, and stomach ulcers; slows down the release of adrenaline reducing the effects of stress on the body15-17

Note – formulas may be modified occasionally.


  • IM Fuel D: Vitamin D helps to protect your neurons, reduces inflammation, supports optimal immunity, mood, sleep, and overall health.18
  • IV Fuel G Push: Glutathione is the master antioxidant that helps to detoxify the body, protects the mucus layers of the digestive system, and reduces inflammation.19

Nourishing nutrients like vitamin B2, selenium and zinc help to heal digestion.
