The “Myers’ Cocktail” is a mixture of nutrients that work together to help patients get the vitamins they need to rehydrate, overcome chronic illnesses or improve their overall health. Myers’ Cocktail Specialists provide the Myers’ Cocktail as a therapeutic means to optimize nutritional stores in the body. As with all forms of Intravenous Therapy, the Myers’ Cocktail mixture bypasses the digestive system, directly inputting nutrients into the bloodstream to increase their potency. When these same nutrients are taken orally or in food substances, they must pass through the liver and then to the small intestines. The trip through the body’s digestive system causes the nutrients to lose their potency, resulting in a reduced dosage of nutrients. This is known as the first-pass effect.
Named after physician John Myers, M.D., the Myers’ Cocktail was originally formulated over 40 years ago and is frequently modified and customized to help men and women improve their nutrient levels. As an internist, Dr. John Myers learned that putting high dosages of particular nutrients into the body could greatly benefit a wide range of health concerns. Providing patients with high levels of important vitamins and minerals, the Myers’ Cocktail contains several different nutrients that can help patients improve their overall health.
Typical nutrients in the Myers’ Cocktail include:
Calcium is a nutrient that you’ve likely been hearing about ever since your mother told you to always drink milk so that you’d grow big and strong. It’s true that calcium is a critical nutrient in encouraging the growth and strength of bones and teeth, which makes calcium an important nutrient in fighting conditions like osteoporosis and other potential illnesses like diabetes, cancer and hypertension.
Magnesium is a catalyst for enzyme reactions, improving the functioning of your nerves and keeping the blood from becoming too thin. Healthy doses of magnesium like those found in the Myers Cocktail can help treat a wide range of concerns and health issues.
Thiamine is a vital element of the Myers’ Cocktail, using carbohydrates to create energy for the body to use to function effectively and helping to build and maintain both DNA and RNA. Conditions that can be helped by Thiamine in the Myers’ Cocktail include fatigue and chronic resistance to weight loss.
- Vitamin C
Vitamin C has long been known as one of the most critical vitamins for the body, but what exactly makes it so important? It’s a powerful antioxidant that’s known to battle free radicals within the body, helping to improve and strengthen the immune system and significantly minimize inflation in the body. In addition to these effects, Vitamin C is also known to help build and maintain important parts of the body like cartilage, tendons and blood vessels with the creation of new cells.
- Cobalamin (Vitamin B12)
B12 is a vitamin that prevents anemia in the blood, helping to jump-start the creation of red blood cells. It also helps build DNA and keep nerve cells functioning in top form. Myers’ Cocktail features a healthy dose of Vitamin B12.
- Pyridoxine (Vitamin B6)
Pyridoxine is critical in the development of melatonin, norepinephrine and serotonin, in addition to helping the endocrine system function effectively, ensuring regular sleep cycles and helping to improve your moods. It can also improve issues like autoimmune disease, acid reflux, irritable bowel syndrome, Crohn’s disease and multiple sclerosis.
