A new trend is sweeping the nation. It’s a health craze known as IV therapy. A lot of misinformation is circulating online about this innovative, science-backed treatment method. At Anazoa MD in Steamboat Springs, CO, our mission is to stay on top of the latest in science-based wellness to help you boost your immune system, energy and mental clarity so you can come to life again.
8 Things IV Therapy Can Do for You
1. Cure Hangovers
Hair of the dog is now a thing of the past with the advent of IV therapy. Drinking while you are hungover may prevent you from caring about your symptoms. However, it only prolongs your agony and makes adequate hydration and nutrition more important. You can go with a basic saline solution for maximum absorption, bypassing your digestive system and providing your bloodstream with everything your body needs directly.
Alternatively, you can choose our Hangover Helper bag with fluids, proprietary vitamin blend and either anti-inflammatory drugs or anti-nausea drugs to provide rapid relief. You probably know that you should be drinking water the morning after a night of overindulgence. But you may be reaching for something else because you can’t even stomach the thought of water. If the thought of sipping on some cool, refreshing H2O makes you queasier and more nauseous than you felt last night, IV therapy may be just what you need.
When you drink water, it takes time for it to pass through your gut and be absorbed into your bloodstream. An IV bag delivers everything your body needs straight to the necessary source providing nearly instantaneous results. Your body starts to benefit from treatment right away. Here are a few symptoms you can expect to reduce with IV bags:
- Changes in mood and behavior
- Stomach cramping
- Nausea and vomiting
- Rapid heart rate
- Muscle aches
- Sensitivity to light and sound
2. Immunity Booster
As the weather in Steamboat Springs cools, people tend to spend more time indoors. Unfortunately, cooler weather is also when bacteria and viruses thrive and propagate at massive rates. With so many people indoors together, illness spreads like wildfire. But with all the holidays during the cold winter months, who has time to be sick?
Our Fuel-IV Immunity bag is designed with a specially formulated, powerful combination of zinc, lysine and vitamin C. Vitamin C plays a key role in keeping your immune system strong and fighting off illnesses before you even feel their effects. Zinc is known for its ability to shorten the duration and lessen the effects of a cold or the flu. Similarly, lysine is a powerful amino acid that both prevents and treats certain types of illnesses, like those caused by the virus herpes simplex.
3. Athletic Performance and Recovery
If your sport is your passion rather than just a hobby, seriously consider our ReFuel IV bag for athletic performance and recovery. One of the greatest challenges athletes face is a drastically weakened immune system as their body puts so much time and energy into repairing and growing torn muscle tissue. Our ReFuel bag features amino acids, the building blocks of protein. It also features magnesium to prevent uncontrollable muscle spasms or painful cramps.
You also get all the B vitamins your body needs to maintain your energy levels, while zinc ensures you do not fall ill while training or recovering from competition. Finally, in addition to a 1L 0.9% saline hydration solution, you get glutathione, a powerful antioxidant that fights free radicals and prevents essential cellular components from damage caused by reactive oxygen species. Anyone who takes his sport seriously, be it weight lifting, lacrosse or American football, should try our ReFuel IV bag. Here are a few things you can expect from this type of treatment:
- Rapid recovery time
- Supported muscle recovery
- Pre-exercise endurance boost
- Perfect post-workout or post-competition recovery
- Maintained healthy tissue and muscle
- Rapid, effective hydration
- Flushed out free radicals, a natural by-product of exercise
Who doesn’t want to look and feel younger? Anazao MD in Steamboat Springs offers, in addition to a proprietary anti-aging IV, Botox injections for you and your closest friends. Make an anti-aging party of it with the country’s most popular, safe and effective anti-aging treatment and an IV bag to boot. This bag features a proprietary blend of B vitamins to help you feel as young and vivacious as you did a decade ago and vitamin C to keep your immune system healthy and strong.
Our anti-aging bag also features glutathione to protect against damage from dangerous free radicals and biotin to keep your skin, hair and nails healthy and strong. Magnesium prevents muscle spasms, aches and cramps, while selenium is a powerful antioxidant that prevents oxidative stress, alleviating bone and joint pain. Selenium is also known to reduce the symptoms of asthma, protect heart health, boost your immune system, protect the proper functioning of your thyroid gland, mitigate the risk of cognitive decline and mitigate the risk of cancer of the breast, lung, colon and prostate. Here’s a brief preview of what you can expect:
- Reduce the appearance of wrinkles
- Slow the aging process
- Protect against the damaging consequences of free radicals
- Strengthen eyes, skin, nails and hair

6. Rapid Pick-Me-Up for Weary Travelers
Traveling, whether for work or for pleasure, is rewarding. But jet lag can ruin your dream vacation or the corporate board meeting you have in the morning if you can’t sleep the night before. It’s just as bad when you’ve come back from a multi-week vacation several time zones away and you have 10 days worth of work to catch up on the next day.
With our Jet Lag & Travel Fatigue IV bag, jet lag becomes nothing more than a distant nightmare. One of the most common causes of jet lag is dehydration, which we address with a tried and true 0.9% saline solution. It also features zinc and vitamin C in case you encountered something that threatens your immune system whilst traveling. B vitamins are essential for topping off your energy reserves while vitamin D plays a critical role in overall health and wellness. And remember, the Jet Lag & Travel Fatigue bag is perfect for the day before your vacation, too. There’s no better way to start off your trip than with plenty of energy, strong bones and joints and a strong, healthy immune system.
7. Healthy Weight Loss
Did you know that B vitamins do more than just increase your energy levels? They also rev your metabolism. Any IV bag with B vitamins can be used to help your body break down fat more efficiently, making weight loss a little faster and easier. Moreover, hydration fuels your body for workouts, aids in faster recovery and helps keep your hunger at bay, making it easier to stick to a healthy, reasonably portioned diet.
Keep in mind, however, that IV treatment cannot be used as a substitute for a healthy diet and regular exercise. While your general metabolism will get a boost, therapy is not a miracle cure. The only way to lose weight is to consume fewer calories than your body burns over time. If you need professional medical help to lose weight, ask us about our medical weight loss program and supplementation through:
- Ascorbic acid – a powerful antioxidant
- Choline – flushes fat from your liver
- Inositol – metabolizes and transports cholesterol and lipids
- Methionine – lowers bad cholesterol and reduces fat
- Niacinamide – anti-anxiety and anti-inflammatory
- Pyridixone – balances potassium and sodium
- Dexantheol – metabolizes lipids, proteins and carbohydrates
- Thiamine – converts carbohydrates to fuel
- Riboflavin – releases energy from carbohydrates
- Mythlycobalamin – metabolizes all essential nutrients

Addiction recovery is hard. There will be times when you feel it is impossible. But you don’t have to overcome addiction alone. As Steamboat Springs, CO’s only concierge IV therapy provider, Anazao MD is proud to be your partner in overcoming your addiction.

IV Therapy FAQ Answered
1. How Long Does Treatment Last?
The therapy itself takes only 15 to 90 minutes. Any booster shots, such as B-complex shots for weight loss, take only a few minutes, and complementary treatments like Botox usually don’t take longer than 15 minutes. The effects of treatment can last between two and three weeks.
2. How Does Therapy Work?
This therapy is so effective because the vitamins, nutrients and saline solution are injected directly into your bloodstream. This bypasses your digestive system and converts a 20% absorption rate from oral supplements into a 100% rapid absorption rate straight to the bloodstream. In other words, therapy is five times more effective and gets to work hours before oral supplements would begin to work.
