Get A Drip is establishing an international presence with its distinct benefits and attractive franchise model.
Vitamin drips and vitamin injections have been slowly gaining popularity over the last few years, pioneered by Dr. John Myers with his Myers Cocktail; a combination of nutrients aimed at increasing energy levels and boosting the immune system.
From initial success in America where vitamin drip clinics can be found on every corner in LA and New York, the trend made its way across the pond to the U.K. where private clinics have been offering vitamin drips for years.
The idea for Get A Drip first came to founder Richard Chambers after he found himself in intensive care in 2010, suffering from complications from his type one diabetes. Following this admission, Richard was continually in and out of hospital for seven years due to issues related to a reduced immune system, where often as part of the treatment he would be hooked up to an IV drip.
Feeling the rejuvenating benefits, Richard decided that drips should be accessible to the general public; not just in private clinics which only celebrities and the very wealthy could afford.
“The effects of the pandemic will last for years and people will now consider their health as an integral part of their daily routines”
After years of researching the benefits of drips and studying the work of Dr. Myers, Get A Drip finally came to fruition in October 2017 with one clinic in Shoreditch, London. Get A Drip is now the U.K.’s leading vitamin drip provider, having administered over 20,000 vitamin drips and booster shots in the three years since opening.
The company now boasts three permanent clinics in London and a state-of-the-art mobile clinic. This unique concept is changing customer attitudes and disrupting the wellness industry with its innovative offering.
There are many benefits of vitamin drip therapy. Aside from the hydrating effects of the fluids, drips contain much larger amounts of nutrients that you will find in oral supplements which means that they don’t need to be taken every day, and the higher amounts have more health-giving benefits.
The vitamins in drips and booster shots also have 100 per cent bioavailability which means that they are instantly absorbed for the body to use how it needs. When you compare this to the bioavailability of oral supplements, which can be as low as 10 per cent, it makes drips the obvious choice to ensure that your body is taking in the maximum amount of nutrients.
WHO USES VITAMIN DRIPS?
In a word – everyone! Anyone who is serious about their health uses vitamin drips to enhance their energy levels and immune system. Get A Drip’s customers vary from exercise junkies who use drips to aid their performance and recovery to new mums who are tired and need a boost, to city-workers who work hard and play hard, to chronic illness sufferers who rely on the nutrients in drips.
The brand also has people from all walks of life who just want an additional boost of nutrients to help them achieve their health goals. Whatever their requirements, Get A Drip has a drip for them from its extensive menu of products.
PANDEMIC-PROOFING THE BUSINESS
The health industry is the best industry to operate in at the moment. The general public is now very interested in their health and wellness, and are looking for the best ways to boost their immune systems and stay as healthy as possible. The effects of the pandemic will last for years and people will now consider their health as an integral part of their daily routines.
“Get A Drip launched its franchising opportunities early in 2020 and has already had unprecedented success with queries from all over the globe”
During the recent lockdown, medical companies were allowed to continue to operate and so Get A Drip was one of the few companies that stayed open, providing much-needed nutrients to its customers. The brand was also able to do home visits so that people could benefit without ever leaving their homes.
SAFETY IS KEY
Health and safety are extremely important to Get A Drip. The products are developed by the brand’s chief medical officer to ensure the correct osmolality and to ensure that safe levels of nutrients are used. Get A Drip only employs medical professionals (doctors and nurses) to administer the drips and has the highest standards, policies, and procedures in the industry. It is the brand’s mission to raise the standard of the industry and be the front-runner in global vitamin drip providers.
