Prime MD utilizes several agents that can help temporarily boost your metabolism. These compounds generally work by a process called thermogenesis, or increased heat production. This process stimulates energy use and can increase your metabolism and help burn calories, some examples are caffeine, capsaicin, and L-carnitine.
When a person receives a vitamin booster treatment, they are receiving a liquid mixture of vitamins and/or minerals directly into the blood stream. This allows the nutrients to be absorbed quickly allowing for higher levels of the vitamins and minerals in your body than if received from food or supplements due to factors that affect our body’s ability to absorb nutrients in the stomach.
These factors include age, metabolism, health status, genetics, interactions with other products we consume, and the physical and chemical makeup of the nutritional supplement or food. Higher levels of the vitamins and minerals in your bloodstream can lead to greater uptake into cells for cellular use and metabolism.
Amino acids are the building blocks of life. Our body uses 23 amino acids, connected in different patterns to build protein molecules – which your whole body is made of protein. It is used in the synthesis of muscle (actin, myosin), skin and connective tissues (collagen), enzymes (digestion of food) and hormones (insulin, growth hormone, thyroid hormone).
Amino acids are also used to make neurotransmitters like serotonin, dopamine, adrenaline and GABA, which influence our moods, cravings and behaviors.
Amino acid IV therapy is the fastest and most effective way to deliver amino acids directly into your circulation, boosting your reserves and allowing update in your cells in higher concentration.
Hydration IV therapy allows your body to absorb nutrients and fluids without relying on the digestive system. It is more efficient than oral hydration and can allow the body to retain more of the nutrients administered.

Zofran – to treat nausea & upset stomach.

NAD+ is a coenzyme needed to stay alive. As a “helper’ molecule, it binds to other enzymes to facilitate reactions at the molecular level which produce positive outcomes on your health.
When NAD+ levels are increased, cells produce more energy, healthy gene expression is upregulated, DNA is repaired, and metabolism is improved.
