In the practice of medicine, intravenous drips are used to introduce a lot of substances directly into the bloodstream, usually drugs. Alternative medicine uses IV drips in chelation therapy to introduce agents that take heavy metals out of the body. But IV drips can also be effectively used to supply the patient with much needed nutrients to speed healing.

PlaqueX therapy does what the name suggests. It removes the plaque build up inside the arterial walls using a natural substance. PlaqueX is a combination of essential phospholipids specially formulated for IV administration.

As we age, our production of phospholipids falters, which has adverse effects throughout the body. PlaqueX therapy replenishes your supply of these crucial building blocks, and in addition to decreasing plaque deposits inside the arteries, it has demonstrated the ability to improve exercise tolerance, reduce angina attacks, lower cholesterol and triglycerides levels, boost circulation, increase male potency and improve kidney function.
