Methylene Blue

Updated: Aug 1, 2022

We are about to “blue” your mind with our newest IV Wellness Drip - Methylene Blue (MB). As a potent cognitive and mitochondrial enhancer, Methylene Blue helps to delay cellular aging, enhance key mitochondrial biochemical pathways, reduce brain inflammation, improve cellular and mitochondrial function, and decrease the production of proteins linked to Alzheimer’s and dementia.


MB was the first synthetic drug to be used in humans back in the 1800s as treatment for malaria and then again in the early 20th century as an experimental treatment for schizophrenia. Today it is being studied as potential therapy for several neurodegenerative diseases and used in functional medicine as IV therapy for its promising anti-aging and nootropic brain effects. Most recently, MB is highlighted for its many different positive effects in brain injuries and neurodegenerative diseases.


Traumatic brain injury (TBI) is the leading cause of death and disability worldwide. Studies have shown that MB can be neuroprotective in mild traumatic brain injury - literally shrinking the brain lesions shown on MRIs after the TBI. MB is also actively used in treatment of Alzheimer's disease. Alzheimer’s disease and other forms of dementia are associated with a buildup of the protein Tau. Clinical trials are confirming that MB inhibits the formation of Tau, further reducing the progression of the disease. Methylene Blue also helps to repair impairments in mitochondrial function and cellular metabolism, repairing these can be beneficial in those with Parkinson's Disease.


As we age, our brain chemistry and metabolism are constantly changing - mitochondrial energy levels decline, attention, memory and mental agility decline, increased damage to brain cell mitochondria from free radicals, and much more. These changes are affected by so many factors like our lifestyle, what we eat, the air we breathe, our genes, health history and age. The good news is that these changes don’t have to negatively affect you! This is where Methylene Blue supplementation comes in and will “blue” your mind.



Methylene Blue:

  • Quickly crosses the blood brain barrier.

  • Improves cognition and memory in healthy people.

  • Reduces inflammation and behavioral complications associated with diffuse and traumatic brain injuries (TBI).

  • Increases mitochondrial function (what the brain’s neurons and all cells in your body rely on for energy) and ATP Production (the energy that powers all cells in the body) promoting positive effects on mood and memory.

  • Acts as an antioxidant - stopping the oxidative cascade at the very beginning before it gets a chance to do any damage.

  • Lengthens the lifespan of brain cells.

  • Potent anti-aging benefits.

  • Amplifies the amount of NAD+ produced by the mitochondria.

  • Boosts serotonin and norepinephrine affecting anxiety, depression and memory.

  • Assists brain cell respiration- how the brain uses oxygen.

  • Attenuates the formations of Amyloid Plaques and Neurofibrillary Tangles (Alzheimer's Disease Markers).

  • Partially repairs impairments in mitochondrial function and cellular metabolism.


Your body does not make Methylene Blue on its own. To get the full benefits from MB you need to supplement it through our IV Wellness Drip. Methylene Blue is beneficial for everyone - especially students and executives who want to boost cognition, learning and memory, grandparents dealing with cognitive decline, people dealing with anxiety and depression, anyone looking to prevent the negative effects of brain injuries as well as slow the progression of aging. Schedule your consultation appointment today to experience all the brain boosting and anti-aging benefits of Methylene Blue yourself!
