IV Nutrition/Plaquex

What is IV nutrition?

IV nutrition is a way to give your body more of the nutrients it needs to thrive. Ideally, the food you eat provides your body with all of the essential nutrients, including:

  • Protein
  • Carbohydrates
  • Vitamins
  • Fats
  • Minerals

Additionally, your body needs plenty of water to feel its best. But between the busyness of life and the loss of nutrients during digestion, most people aren’t getting the nutrition and hydration they need. 

IV nutrition remedies that directly. When you choose this treatment, Dr. Manohar provides the nutrients and hydration you need via an IV. This way, the nutrients enter your bloodstream without having to go through your digestive system. This is powerful because many nutrients are lost throughout the digestive process or because your body doesn’t properly absorb them. Putting the nutrients straight into your bloodstream allows your body to fully utilize them. 

What types of IV treatments are available?

At Florida Regional Pain Management, Dr. Manohar and the team offer two types of IV treatments:

IV nutrition therapy

This treatment is personalized to you based on what your body needs. Dr. Manohar talks with you about any symptoms you’re experiencing. He may also perform blood tests or other diagnostics to identify your specific nutritional deficiencies. 

Then, he customizes your IV solution to you, including such nutrients as vitamin B, vitamin C, and magnesium. You leave your IV nutrition therapy appointment feeling rejuvenated and refreshed because your body is resupplied with the essential nutrients it needs to work its best. 


Another IV-based treatment, Plaquex delivers polyunsaturated phosphatidylcholine (PC) to your bloodstream. PC is the component that makes up the protective membranes around your cells and helps your body properly process cholesterol. By resupplying your cells with PC through Plaquex, Dr. Manohar can reduce chest pain and problems with your stomach, liver, skin, and kidneys. This treatment also helps your blood vessels clear plaque, preventing problems from high cholesterol. 

Is IV nutrition right for me?
