Each year it feels like more and more useful information, advanced products, and powerful services make their way into our awareness, routines, and offerings. The team at VIVA Wellness wanted to take a moment to share a few of the products and concepts that have made some of the biggest impacts both within their own experience and with clients.
First, please remember that VIVA Wellness services and retail products, such as our signature Weight & Detox Protocols (including compounded semaglutide,) *may* be qualified spending—stop in to browse our carefully curated and team-tested/loved collection or contact us to book a consultation on options for you. Your FSA was designed to support your wellness, so make sure that you’re taking advantage.
Plans and eligibility may vary—check with yours for the specifics, as we can make no guarantees about what is considered qualified/eligible spending.
Better Belly Drip
This is a powerhouse blend of amino acids, antioxidants and nutrients that support the health and repair of compromised gut tissue. It’s a formulation that we’re incredibly proud to offer for the way we see it change the way our clients feel and digest, especially when paired with colonics or lymphatic drainage treatments:
- Vitamin C. Antioxidant for tissue repair. Reduces inflammation.
- L-Glutamine. Protects and repairs gut lining. Balances blood sugar and reduces sugar cravings.
- L-Arginine. Protects mucosa. Cools inflamed gut.
- Zinc. Enhances microbial diversity. Immune system boost.
- Glutathione. Supports liver, health, and detoxification.
- Selenium. Powerful antioxidant. Balances microbiome.
Also, inherent in the drip and still helpful for the gut specifically is HYDRATION. A dehydrated gut is not an optimal digestive condition and so delivering fluids through an IV is an incredible way to immediately replenish the body’s fluids.

Queen of Thrones CASTOR OIL & PACKS
We’ve recommended this to nearly everyone who has come through the doors at VIVA Wellness because they are THAT effective. Read more about castor oil’s use and origins here, but snag yours and start supporting your body’s detox pathways while also dropping into deeper states of rest and relaxation. It’s easy, it’s profound, and it can revolutionize your health. We’re really not exaggerating with this one, it has the power to significantly detox the liver and move stagnant waste in the digestive tract which can help the entire system function more effectively—think hormone change, reduced menstrual pain/cramping, reduction in bloating, better and more regular bowel movements, etc.
Castor oil is now part of the colonic experience with VIVA Wellness because it is both relaxing to the nervous system and effective for moving stagnation that we’re trying to move during the colonic.
Glutathione + Metabolism Booster Intramuscular Injections / IM Shots
Not just for those trying to lose weight, the metabolism booster and glutathione combo of IM Injections is a powerful punch of detoxification! You can take these orally, but for increased absorption and efficacy, IM injections are quick and nearly painless.
- Glutathione — The “master” detoxificant. Brightens skin, promotes collagen, detoxifies the liver, and strengthens hair, skin, and nails.
- Metabolism Booster — A blend of essential B vitamins with MIC (amino acids methionine, inositol, and choline) help the liver process fat more effectively, increase energy, and aid in stress management.
Especially before, during, or after periods of slightly erratic eating and straying from healthy habits, a true system-wide reset such as a fast can provide a powerful opportunity for the body to do some deep cleaning. We talk about the role of fasting here, and what we love about this type of fasting is that you can still eat!
The ProLon Fasting Mimicking Diet was developed at the University of Southern California (USC) at the Longevity Institute by a team of PhDs and other medical professionals who specialize in obesity medicine. The diet includes a blend of different soups, bars, and snacks that have a specific caloric, fiber, and vitamin/mineral content to keep you full and help induce a fasted state. Completing the ProLon diet is the equivalent of a 5-day water fast, but is more gentle, and easier to complete.
- Low commitment: the plan is only 5 days, compared to hormone weight loss therapy, which is 10-12 weeks.
- Quick results: Most clients will lose an average of 5.7lbs. and keep the majority of the weight off.
- Convenience: all of the food for the entire 5 days is included along with vitamin supplements.
- Effective: In studies, people who have tried the ProLon Diet monthly over a period of 3 months experienced an increase in their body’s stem cells, a reduction of inflammatory markers, and better levels of healthy cholesterol, glucose, and other metabolic markers.
Fasting isn’t for everyone, but it’ll be pretty clear to you if you aren’t a good fit for this sort of protocol. If you have questions, please contact us or schedule a consult with our NPs. Otherwise, you can order your kit directly here.
