Although there is no magic pill when it comes to weight loss. IV Lean builds on the foundations of whole foods, fitness, and other lifestyle strategies for metabolism. The IV Lean may help to optimize your metabolic rate, increase energy, reduce the effects of stress including excess cortisol, decrease inflammation, and maintain optimal nutrient status while on a weight loss program.


Ingredients: B Vitamins, Vitamin B5, Vitamin B6, Biotin, Vitamin C, Calcium, Chromium, Copper, Magnesium, Manganese, Selenium, Zinc, Taurine

  • B Vitamins support cellular energy, detoxification, digestion, mood, and immunity.
  • Vitamin B5 promotes hormone production, B6 increases serotonin to reduce cravings, and B12 increases energy.3-6
  • Vitamin B5 is required in higher amounts during times of stress.
  • Vitamin B6 promotes optimal mood and sleep as it is required to convert tryptophan to serotonin and melatonin.
  • Biotin elevates your resting rate of metabolism. It can help accelerate weight loss, especially when paired with chromium.
  • Vitamin C status is inversely related to body mass. Individuals with adequate vitamin C status oxidize 30% more fat during a moderate exercise bout compared to individuals with low vitamin C levels.7
  • Calcium promotes relaxation, energy, a good quality sleep which stabilizes cortisol, small increases in thermogenesis, and lower body weight.8,9
  • Chromium is a part of a molecule called chromodulin, which helps the hormone insulin balance blood sugar, reduce hunger, cravings, and overall food intake.10 ,11
  • Magnesium helps to produce cellular energy, conduct nerve impulses, muscle contraction, promote optimal sleep, and regulate blood sugar which may contribute to weight loss.12
  • Manganese helps to support energy.
  • Selenium is an antioxidant that supports the thyroid gland and lowers oxidative stress in the body which reduces inflammation.13
  • Zinc may increase the production of leptin, the main hormone that controls your appetite and satiety, to reduce overeating. It also supports immunity, hormone balance, and the adrenal gland.14-16
  • Taurine helps to maintain proper hydration and electrolyte balance in your cells, forms bile salts to aid digestion, regulates minerals such as calcium within your cells, supports the CNS, promotes eye health, regulates immunity, improves athletic performance, and may aid weight loss.17-20

Note – formulas may be modified occasionally.


  • IM Fuel D: Vitamin D promotes a healthy positive mood which is fundamental for an effective weight management plan.21
  • IM B12 Shot: An extra 5000mcg of B12 is delivered to help reduce stress, increase energy, reduce cravings and increase metabolism.3
