The IV and Oxygen Bars
The IV Bar
Vitamin cocktails, anybody? I read about them and have seen many people post photos on Instagram, yet had never actually tried one. That's why when I was able to score a spot to have my first vitamin IV drip at In Goop Health, I was jumping for joy. A little sniffly, I got a combo of vitamin C and glutathione. Each session takes about 15 to 20 minutes and allowed four guests at a time to get hooked up in the name of health. It was actually pretty comical to see a hospital-like setup surrounded by moon-dusted tonics and vegan ice cream. You could feel the positive energy radiating, even amongst the skeptical husbands who were dragged to the summit by their Gwyneth-loving wives. I'll admit, I actually felt really good after my drip. My congestion went down, my nose wasn't as runny, and my cough dried up, giving me an extra boost before the next panel discussion. One guest even dished to me that she loves to get a vitamin drip to kick her hangover. She even referred me to an on-demand app, bringing the IV and your Vitamin MD directly to your home at the tap of an iPhone screen. You best believe I downloaded it.
The Oxygen Bar
After drinking the "Goop Kool-Aid," as Paltrow joked at the start of the summit, Bulletproof (creators of the butter coffee making buzz in the Paleo community) hosted an oxygen-bar to help guests further imbibe on the healthy festivities. The bar allowed for two guests at a time to hook up to a high-concentrate oxygen tank to help boost blood flow and cell rejuvenation. Hyperbaric oxygen therapy was also given a mention by Amy Myers, MD, on a gut panel earlier in the day as one of the up-and-coming trends attendees should be on the lookout for.
