Methylene Blue Infusion
Methylene Blue (methylthioninium chloride) is a nootropic to increase memory, mood and longevity. Methylene blue helps your body by improving cellular energy (ATP) production and by decreasing the production of harmful proteins.
Treatment: 30 minutes
Frequency: Twice a Week for 2 Weeks (4 sessions) + 2-4 Month Maintenance
What Are the Benefits of Methylene Blue?
In the 1800’s it was used in the treatment of malaria.
The benefits of Methylene Blue include:
- Anti-microbial function
- Powerful antioxidant function when combined with glutathione
- Increased ROS (reactive oxygen species) activity
- Used in Cancer treatments
- Anti-aging properties
- Nerve protection
- Memory improvement
4 Methylene Blue infusions (recommend 1-2x/week) + 2 Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy Sessions $500
We recommend doing the Hyperbaric Oxygen Chamber once a week, right before or after your infusion, this will help the infusions uptake in cells better and helps oxygen your body and mind with a powerful mix of oxygen + air pressure.
Price per Infusion:
Individual infusion: $100. We recommend doing these once a month after the initial anti-aging package to help keep improving cognition, clarity, agility and a host of other anti-aging effects to the mind and body. Add on a Revive or Immune boost with glutathione for an extra burst of energy!
Dosing for acute infections varies by treatment plan. Please talk to the provider about an plan that would be best for you.
Methylene Blue for Treating Cancer
Photodynamic therapy (PDT) uses light energy alongside a potent medication to help destroy cancerous cells. PDT works so well because the cancer cells are targeted using light activation. Methylene blue dye is used to pigment the cancerous cells and then it’s illuminated or activated using PDT so the cancer cells are easily targeted. Using Methylene blue with PDT can target and kill cancerous tumors,and reduce the chances of cancer coming back, especially in breast cancer patients.
The Anti-Aging Effects of Methylene Blue
Methylene blue works as an antioxidant and helps build connective tissue. Not only does it help build new skin, but it also delays cell death allowing your healthy cells to live longer. Methylene blue can also change the expression of some of your skin proteins and can increase your elastin and collagen production. Both elastin and collagen are integral to making your skin look and feel younger, so it’s important to have an adequate amount produced by your body, especially as you start growing older.
Methylene Blue is currently being studied as potential therapy for mild cognitive impairment, Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s disease, and other neurodegenerative disorders. All sharing a common problem with mitochondrial function.
Our brain’s neurons rely almost entirely on mitochondria-derived energy. Failure of mitochondrial function can affect the rest of our body. But it’s particularly detrimental to your brain.
This is where Methylene Blue steps in as possibly one of the most important anti-aging and neurological disease preventing nootropics we have available today.
Methylene Blue helps:
- Neurotransmitters: Methylene Blue boosts serotonin and norepinephrine potentially helping to decrease anxiety, depression and memory loss.
- Mitochondrial Energy: Methylene Blue assists brain cell respiration by increasing oxygen. Increasing cellular energy positively affects mood and memory.
- Neuroprotectant: Methylene Blue is a potent antioxidant. Reactive oxygen species are produced inside mitochondria. The first free radical that is formed inside a cell is superoxide. Methylene Blue will bind to superoxide and reduce it to water. It stops the oxidative cascade before it starts.
Aging + Cellular Health:
As we live life, our brain chemistry and metabolism changes.
↓ Mitochondrial energy levels decline
↓ Attention, memory and mental agility decline
↓ Tau proteins and amyloid plaques clog the brain
↓ Free radicals damage brain cell mitochondria
↓ Cerebral blood flow declines
All of these changes can happen at any age. And are a product of the food we eat, what we drink, what toxins/chemicals we put in and on our bodies, lifestyle habits, the air we breathe and more.
Methylene Blue can help improve age-related cognitive decline, as well as enhance brain function at any age (ie: could be alternative for ADHD medications). These improvements can be done by boosting brain cell mitochondria energy levels as well as improving cerebral blood flow.
Methylene Blue to the Rescue
Low dose Methylene Blue supplementation can provide memory enhancing effects in animals and humans. It works as an antidepressant, is anti-aging, helps dementia, Huntington’s and Alzheimer’s.
Methylene Blue increases low blood pressure, improves cognition in healthy people, boosts mitochondrial function, is antimicrobial and even slow skin aging.
How is Methylene Blue Offered at Vive IV Therapy?
Vive IV Therapy offers individual Methylene Blue infusions or an Anti-Aging Package! We utilize IV (intravenous) infusions and oral supplementation of methylene blue. The IV infusion takes around 30 minutes and is a comfortable IV therapy. Side effects can be blue urine (can happen with both IV or oral methylene blue), this is a normal side effect and not worrisome. Other potential side effects are not common but can include GI upset, elevated blood pressure, increased heart rate, sweating or ‘herx’ type of reactions.
