Active Ingredients

Färsk Health’s formulas have been carefully designed by our medical team with the intention of providing our patients access to optimized wellbeing. There are powerful actives in each of our products and each of them tackles a specific health concern.

We use reputable, traceable providers to source our ingredients, which are in compliance with GMP, OCP and PCCA standards and Health Canada. The ingredients for our IV Drips are specially scrutinized in order to keep safety as our priority: we use only ingredients with intravenous indication -never powders- with DIN and manufacture them in a DPP facility.


Vitamins are organic molecules that the body needs in order to function properly. Some of them have a specific biochemical function in the body, and some work together in different processes of the body.

Vitamins help the body synthesize essential nutrients and allow it to work optimally. Both deficiencies and excess of vitamins can be a threat to the body, which is why our products include the highest dosage that is safe to optimize health.


Electrolytes are minerals that carry an electric charge when they enter our bloodstream, affecting fluid balance, blood pH, blood pressure, muscle tissues and brain cells. The primary electrolytes for our health are sodium, potassium, calcium, magnesium, phosphate and chloride.

The kidneys and several hormones regulate the concentration of each electrolyte, but imbalances happen when certain electrolytes become higher than what the body can regulate. The most common symptom of an electrolyte imbalance is dehydration.

Amino Acids

Amino acids are organic compounds often referred to as the building blocks of proteins. They each play different key roles in the body. They are composed of nitrogen, carbon, hydrogen and oxygen, along with a variable side chain group.

The body needs 20 amino acids, nine of which are essential -which means our bodies don’t produce them on their own, so we need to source them from food or supplements. These are: Histidine, Isoleucine, Leucine, Lysine, Methionine, Phenylalanine, Threonine, Tryptophan and Valine.
