By KAYLA CALDWELL, Daily Mail October 16, 2016
The I.V. Doc is marketed as 'an energizing, 30-minute, I.V. (intravenous) hydration therapy that will provide you with a quick recovery from hangover, flu, jet lag, exercise fatigue, food poisoning, and general exhaustion.'
Kim reportedly chose the 'Beautify' treatment, which runs for $399 and contains a mix of B vitamins, electrolytes, and anti-inflammatory medication to help with healthy skin and hair, 'leaving you looking beautiful and radiant.'
'She wanted to have a glow for the red carpet,' a source told the publication of Kim's pre-Met Gala I.V. treatment.
They added: 'So she ordered treatment with plenty of vitamins along with the fluids and electrolytes.'

Kate Upton had the same idea, with The I.V. Doc's Instagram account sharing a picture of her '#MetGala prep with @brycescarlett'
Neil Patrick Harris previously promoted the service as a hangover cure following New Year's Eve, and other celebrities such as Gwyneth Paltrow and Audrina Patridge have used it as well.
Kim's husband Kanye West opted to sit out of the I.V. treatment according to the source, who added that the Keeping Up with the Kardashians star was not feeling particularly chatty.

'Kim wouldn’t even make eye contact with the nurse administering her the I.V.,' the source said. 'Any conversation and instructions were directed through an assistant.'
Following the treatment, Kim's glam squad got to work on putting together her futuristic look, for which Vogue named her (and husband Kanye) the best-dressed couple.
She later shared a video on her website giving a behind-the-scenes look at her getting ready process, including make-up by Mario Dedivanovic and hair by César DeLeön Ramirêz.
