Naples Center for Functional Medicine has expanded its IV therapy services to include FastVitaminIV. The proprietary blend contains 19 health-promoting vitamins, minerals and amino acids.
FastVitaminIV is the newest adjunctive medical service at Naples Center for Functional Medicine. Patients report feeling a “push effect” after receiving FastVitaminIV treatments. Those feelings include a surge of energy, sensation of general happiness and a boost in mental clarity and focus.
What are IV therapies?
Quick-acting and more effective than oral supplements, IV therapy infuses nutrients intravenously into the bloodstream. This allows a patient’s body to bypass the need for absorption through the intestinal tract. Instead, their body can immediately begin using, and benefiting from, the liquid nutrients.
What is FastVitaminIV?
Developed by Koniver Wellness, FastVitaminIV is a blend of 19 vitamins, minerals, and amino acids. It is administered intravenously for about one minute, much faster than traditional IV drips that take 30 to 120 minutes.
What are the health benefits of FastVitaminIV?
Patients report improved moods, boosted energy levels, elevated concentration and focus, better sleep and an overall improved sense of well-being. Additional benefits may include improved athletic performance and recovery, relief for hangovers and migraines, and anti-aging properties.
What do patients experience and feel during a treatment?
Patients receiving a FastVitaminIV treatment may experience these feelings and sensations, in order:
- They may taste the solution. Many say it tastes like a B vitamin.
- After about 15 seconds, they may feel warmth in the back of their throat.
- That warmth may travel down their body, giving a sensation that patients have to urinate. They don’t, but that’s how patients describe the feeling.
- Patients will continue to feel warmth across their bodies, particularly their hands and feet.
- Some individuals say the feeling of warmth causes temporary blurred vision or lightheadedness.
Just as quickly as these symptoms set in, they are gone. The whole process takes about one minute from start to finish.
FastVitaminIV notes that patients “have NEVER EVER had an adverse reaction from FastVitaminIV.”
What other IV therapies are available at Naples Center for Functional Medicine?
In addition to FastVitaminIV, Naples Center for Functional Medicine’s other IV therapies include brain optimization, chelation therapy, glutathione, high-dose vitamin C, hydration, nutritional and ozone therapy. Registered nurses perform IV therapies in the center’s infusion lounge. All patients are first seen by a doctor at Naples Center for Functional Medicine to determine appropriate therapy.

In a recent news article, Dr. Carol L. Roberts, medical director at Naples Center for Functional Medicine, had this to say about IV therapies:
“FastVitaminIV therapy is a safe, effective way to deliver vitamins and minerals that help a person’s body and mind perform at optimum levels,” she said. “More patients are turning toward IV therapy because it allows nutrients to enter the bloodstream directly, so they’re seeing nearly instantaneous results.”
