IV therapy with high dose magnesium, B vitamins and vitamin C has been found to help reduce pain and inflammation, improve energy and overall wellness in those with chronic pain including those with back pain, fibromyalgia, arthritis, injuries, headaches and migraines.1-5


IV Pain Relax works to reduce pain due to a variety of causes. Pain can be divided into two main broad classes nociceptive and neuropathic.6-8 Nociceptive pain results from activation of peripheral pain receptors and includes sprains, fractures, osteoarthritis, arthritis, and myofascial pain.6-8 Neuropathic pain results from an injury or dysfunction to the nervous system and is often described as burning, crushing, and “pins and needles”) and includes post-shingles neuralgia, nerve trauma, and carpal tunnel syndrome.6-8  Nociceptive pain is linked to inflammation while neuropathic pain may be more difficult to treat9 Several studies have suggested that free radicals play a role in exaggerated pain hypersensitivity and thus antioxidants are helpful for pain management strategies.10


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

  • B Vitamins such as B1, B6, and B12 have been proven to be clinically effective in treating various nociceptive and neurogenic painful conditions such as sciatica, degenerative spine disease, rheumatic diseases, low-back pain, trigeminal neuralgia, facial paralysis, and optic neuritis as acting as a pain reliever.11-14
  • Vitamin B5 decreases the release of myeloperoxidase from granulocytes and inhibits the formation of free oxygen radicals, and it exhibits an anti-inflammatory effect by increasing mitotic activity.
  • Vitamin B6 has antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties.
  • Biotin helps to reduce inflammation in the body.
  • Vitamin C is an antioxidant that has been linked to rapid and consistent ability to help to reduce inflammation, and nociceptive pain in animal studies.15,16 Prophylactic vitamin C has also been linked to a 5-fold decrease in the incidence of complex regional pain syndrome amount patients who recently underwent foot/ankle surgery compared to no treatment17
  • Calcium helps to relax spasms in muscles to help reduce pain
  • Magnesium: reduces nerve pain, and helps to calm the nervous system by modulating the excitatory-to-inhibitory actions of GABA and glutamate in the brain, respectively.18,19
  • Taurine boosts circulation and inter-cellular energy—helping with rehydration; to  promote healing.
  • Selenium helps protect the body from mitochondrial oxidative stress which is important to help reduce pain.20
  • Zinc helps to reduce pain, supports immunity, and the adrenal gland.21

Note – formulas may be modified occasionally


  • IM Fuel D: Vitamin D metabolites help reduce inflammation by regulating cytokines and deficiency is linked to several painful conditions30,31
  • IV Fuel G Push: Gluathione is the body’s master antioxidant and reduces free radical damage to help manage pain.32

This mini formula contains magnesium and B vitamins to help reduce pain.
