What is IVtoGo?
IVtoGo is a portable, drinkable version of high-dose vitamin C IV treatment. It combines IV levels of liposomal vitamin C with Reduced Glutathione and B vitamins in a convenient oral supplement that can be taken anywhere. All supplements are liposomally encapsulated and correctly proportioned so as to replicate the total absorption provided by a 25 g IV vitamin C cocktail. For IV equivalence, five 1-Tbsp are taken throughout the day.
How is it different than IV?
Besides convenience, two significant differences between IV and IVtoGo are absorption and therapeutic duration.
IV vitamin C is said to be 100% bioavailable, but in fact only around 15% of IV vitamin C is actually absorbed by the body. (See our Science page for details.) Liposomes facilitate much higher absorption - around 90-100%. Thus, smaller doses may be used to achieve the same total absorption. IVtoGo does the math for you, to ensure IV equivalence is achieved in a drinkable, portable supplement.
The other difference is therapeutic duration. IV vitamin C reaches peak levels in the body at 90 minutes and is expelled from the body in around 3 hours; liposomes don't reach peak level for around 6 hours, and circulate in the body for up to two days. When it comes to vitamin C therapy, duration has been shown to be vitally important for cancer, and with IVtoGo, therapeutic levels can be maintained on a 24-hour per day basis if desired.
What are liposomes?
Liposomes are natural nanosized packages used to deliver supplements, drugs, and other therapeutic substances with greater efficiency than can be achieved via IV or traditional oral supplements. Liposomes are so well absorbed because they are encased by the same lipids that form the walls of human cells. Cells absorb them quickly because of their affinity for repairing themselves. This allows IVtoGo vitamins (Vitamin C, Glutathione, and B Vitamins) to be efficiently delivered into the interiors (cytoplasms) of cells throughout the body.
In fact, research shows that when nutrients are not accompanied by the appropriate lipids, absorption is drastically reduced - and for this reason, in many cases, traditional oral and IV vitamins are in large part rejected by the body.
What shipping options are available?
Standard UPS and USPS shipping, as well as overnight shipping from either carrier, are available at checkout.
Can I use IVtoGo for mold symptoms, heavy metals, and toxicity?
IVtoGo facilitates high absorption of vitamin C, L-Glutathione, and B vitamins. As such, it can be used effectively as a treatment for mold, heavy metals, and other toxins. As with any strong protocol, users may experience die-off and/or detox symptoms, which can vary from light to severe.
A common protocol for these conditions is 1-3 Tbsp per day, 2 to 3 times per week.
If and when detox symptoms occur, reduce dose to 1-2 Tbsp per day every 1 to 2 times per week. The use of binders, such as chlorella, in addition to other detoxification therapies, can alleviate these symptoms for the duration of recovery.

Is IVtoGo better than vitamin C alone?
L-Glutathione and B Vitamins are potent antioxidants and antioxidant cofactors, and provide significantly greater therapeutic effect than vitamin C alone. This is the reason why they all are included in most clinical IV Vitamin C therapies, and why they IVtoGo formulates them together, in appropriate proportions for maximum synergistic effect.
Is the formula vegan or vegetarian?
IVtoGo is vegan and produced in 100% vegan facilities.
How pure is IVtoGo?
Patient outcome is at the center of the IVtoGo philosophy. Since liposomes usher their contents directly into cellular interiors, contaminated lipsomes can cause significant damage. With this in mind, IVtoGo uses the purest ingredients on the worldwide market. No components are from China and all inputs come from very reputable sources in American, Europe, or Japan. These include Setria® L-Glutathione, Ultrapure water (exceeding pharmaceutical grade), and a proprietary, highly purified Phosphatidylcholine complex blend for the composition of its liposomes. IVtoGo is free of sugar, soy, gluten, dairy; and neither alcohol nor solvents are used in liposome formation. This natural, chemical-free method of liposome formation is distinct from most commercially available liposomes, which often use solvents or alcohol.
Flavoring is provided by stevia and natural botanical extracts.
Facilities are FDA-approved and inspected, 100% vegan, and free of all common allergens.
Who should use IVtoGo?
IV vitamin C has been proven effective in combating so many conditions because most, if not all diseases, are associated with oxidative stress. Accordingly, IVtoGo's IV-equivalent absorption has been utilized for Cancer, drug detoxification, Parkinson's, Lyme Disease, and as a detoxification aid during chelation and amalgam removal - to name a few. Like IV Vitamin C, it is also popular as a high-dose cold and flu remedy. It is very well-tolerated by all ages.
How Does It Work?
IVtoGo utilizes natural, nanoscale, liposomal technology to achieve exceedingly high absorption. Liposomes facilitate uptake and distribution of their contents via intestinal lymphatic delivery to general (blood) circulation. They function as microscopic "passports", allowing direct intracellular access to nuclei, endoplasmic reticula, and other organelles. Additionally, studies show that liposomes enable absorption into the brain, lungs, neural cells, and deep bodily tissues generally - to a degree not possible for intravenous administration.

How Will It Make Me Feel?
Aside from clinical benefits, most people notice subjective benefits from taking IVtoGo. These include an improved sense of well-being, increased energy, improved cognitive function, calmness, faster recovery from colds and flu, a reduction in joint pain, and many others. These benefits have been observed in individuals of all ages and, notably, by those who are accustomed to receiving traditional IV vitamin C on a regular basis.
Note that due to the strong detoxifying effect of the formulation, some light-headedness or mild flu-like symptoms may be experienced. Consumers are advised to start with 1-2 Tbsp on the first day to gauge individual tolerance. If no detoxification symptoms occur, the full 5-Tbsp protocol may be taken as desired.
Pathogen die-off or detoxification symptoms can occur intermittently, and users should reduce consumption until symptoms subside.
How Should I Take It?
IVtoGo should be chilled for best flavor and shaken before each use. It can be mixed with any cold drink. Hot drinks and mechanical blending devices can damage liposomes and are therefore not recommended.
What is the Dosing Regimen?
IVtoGo uses as proprietary dosing protocol based on peer-reviewed studies of the absorption rates of vitamin C, Glutathione, and the included B vitamins when administered in liposomal as opposed to intravenous forms.
5 Tbsp offers the equivalent absorption of a 25g IV Vitamin C treatment. For 25 g IVC equivalence, take 1 Tbsp./15 ml every 2 hours until five doses have been taken. All five Tbsp may be taken at once if needed, however, this results in a decrease in therapeutic duration.
As with all dietary supplements, consult your healthcare provider prior to use. Pregnant or lactating women and children under the age of 18 should consult their qualified healthcare provider prior to use.
How often should I take the Regimen?
As the dosing regimen is generally very well-tolerated, it may be taken daily. Individuals may react differently depending on bodily constitution and health challenges.
For health maintenance and preventative supplementation, lesser doses are very safe and well-tolerated for all ages, regardless of health challenges. As with all dietary supplements, consult your healthcare provider prior to use.
What's in IVtoGo?
IVtoGo contains no Chinese ingredients, soy, gluten, dairy, or any common allergens. Nor does it contain, as some liposomes do, any alcohol or solvents - which can adversely affect the body.
It is comprised of sodium ascorbate and ascorbic acid (vitamin C), several B vitamins (loosely based on the Myers Cocktail), and the most potent intracellular detoxifier, Glutathione (Setria® brand). All supplements are encapsulated in ultra-pure non-GMO phosphatidylcholine (PC) liposomes.
Should I take IVtoGo during chemotherapy?
High doses of vitamin C have demonstrated synergistic effects with chemotherapy drugs, and clinical studies strongly indicate the potent cancer-killing effects of vitamin C.
Moreover, clinical studies indicate that liposomes enter lymphatic circulation (where solid tumors are spread), and are able to pass the blood-brain barrier and penetrate tissues more deeply than IV-administered vitamin C.
Individuals are advised to consult their doctor prior to using IVtoGo during any cancer treatment.
Is IVtoGo Vitamin C corn-based?
No. The sodium ascorbate and ascorbic acid in IVtoGo are laboratory derived and are tested to be 100% corn-free.
Should it be refrigerated?
Refrigeration is not required, but most individuals prefer the taste of IVtoGo when chilled to refrigerated temperature. Because liposomes lose stability at high temperatures, it is recommended to store IVtoGo at or below room temperature. Do not freeze.
Will IVtoGo upset my stomach?
IVtoGo liposomes contain significant amounts of phospholipids, which can on occasion cause stomach upset. If this occurs, extend time between doses or reduce number of daily doses until symptoms subside.
What is the shelf life?
Is it OK for children?
Lesser dosages (one to two 2 tbsp/30 ml per day) are within the safe boundaries of established youth cosumption of the nutrients. However, IVtoGo is not produced for children. As with all dietary supplements, consult your healthcare provider prior to use.
What type of packaging is used?
IVtoGo is bottled in glass only.
Why should I be concerned about purity?
Much of the food and vitamin supply in the United States comes from sources of Chinese origin. This comes with inherent risk, as a record exists of impure supplements originating from that and other developing regions. To avert this, IVtoGo utilizes supplements sourced 100% from Europe and the United States - both of which have a strong record of enforcement of purity standards.
Additionally, one should realize that purity in liposomal supplements is of even greater importance than that of conventional vitamins. Liposomes have deeper access to the body in that they deliver their contents directly to the interior of cells. And so, if encapsulated supplements are tainted, harmful substances may reach cellular cytoplasm, where they can cause maximum damage. For this reason, IVtoGo places purity concerns at the forefront of formulation strategy.
