how does iv max-hangover wor?

There are three main causes of a hangover.

  1. Dehydration: Alcohol decreases vasopressin and anti-diuretic hormone leading to frequent urination and dehydration. This causes the tissues around your brain to shrink increasing pressure around your head that can contribute to headaches, fatigue and dizziness.1,2
  2. Acetaldehyde: Acetaldehyde is the toxic byproduct of alcohol that causes free radical damage the body must detoxify.
  3. Nutritional Deficiencies: Alcohol leads to nutrient deficiencies because the liver prioritizes metabolizing alcohol over nutrients, In particular alcohol depletes B vitamins, magnesium, potassium, selenium and zinc.3


Ingredients: Fluid, B Vitamins, Vitamin B5, Vitamin B6, HydroxyB12 (active B12), MTHF (active folate), Vitamin C, Calcium, Chromium, Copper, Magnesium, Manganese, Selenium, Zinc, Taurine

  1. IV Fluids with sterile water solution, rehydrates, and provides 100% absorption of nutrients.
  2. B Vitamins promote detoxification to help reduce fatigue, mental fog, nausea, decreased reaction time, lack of balance, and more. 4,5 One study found that Vitamin B6 can reduce hangovers by more than 50%.
  3. Vitamin B5 supports the production of hormones and is needed in greater amounts during times of stress
  4. Vitamin B6 promotes optimal mood and sleep by supporting the conversion of tryptophan to serotonin to melatonin
  5. HydroxyB12 is an active B12 to support energy
  6. MTHF is an active folate to support energy and mental clarity
  7. Vitamin C reduces inflammation and promote glutathione to block alcohol toxicity, helps reduce pain and speeds up recovery.7
  8. Calcium relaxes smooth muscles and reduce headaches.
  9. Chromium helps to regulate blood sugar
  10. Copper supports immunity
  11. Magnesium works with calcium to relax smooth muscles, reduce headaches and increase energy.
  12. Manganese helps to replenish vital minerals lost with excess alcohol consumption for energy.
  13. Selenium tends to be depleted with alcohol and reduces the toxicity of heavy metal ions.8
  14. Zinc encourages the body to product enzymes that break down free radicals; helps to reduce anxiety that often is linked to overdrinking.
  15. Taurine promotes cardiovascular blood flow and is vital in maintaining proper hydration and electrolyte balance in your cells.

Note – formulas may be modified occasionally.


  • IV Fuel G Push: Glutathione which is depleted by alcohol plays a key role in detoxification by “mopping up” acetaldehyde the toxic by product of alcohol.12
