  • Intravenous vitamin drips have long been popular with A-list stars

  • Real women are following in their footsteps for a quick-fix health boost

  • Drips claim to treat an array of ailments by pumping substances into the blood

  • Weeks ago Kendall Jenner was reportedly hospitalised after reaction to a drip

  • Some experts warn they could result in bruising, swelling or even death

Intravenous vitamin drips have long been popular with A-listers but now 'regular' women are adopting the trend in the search of a quick-fix health boost.

Kelly Osbourne, Rihanna and Chrissy Teigen are among the stars who have been snapped sitting with their arms attached to one of the clinical drips, which feed vitamins, minerals, and other natural substances directly into the bloodstream.

Depending on the specific cocktail, drips can be used to beat colds, boost brain function and cure hangovers, as well as a number of other alleged benefits.

It is therefore of little surprise average Britons are forking out hundreds to see if it really is a one-stop-stop for overcoming wellness woes.

However after Kendall Jenner was reportedly hospitalised following a bad reaction to an IV drip last month, it's clear this relatively new health craze is not without its risks. Indeed, some claim the wrong dose could even result in death.
