20 Nov What is a Myers Cocktail?
Named after Dr. John Myers, a physician who invented it, the Myers’ Cocktail is a nutrient-rich blend that will help boost immunity, relieve pain, and improve your overall health.
Nutrients in food and oral supplements pass through our liver and intestines before they reach our bloodstream and begin to act within the body. As a result, many of these vital nutrients can be lost along the way. As an IV (intravenous) therapy, the Myers’ Cocktail is delivered directly into the body’s bloodstream where the nutrients can be fully absorbed.
For over four decades the Myers’ Cocktail has become an incredibly powerful tool for doctors and patients all over the world.
What’s in a Myers’ Cocktail?
The Myers’ Cocktail includes several vitamins and minerals designed to improve health.
Calcium is a critical nutrient in encouraging the growth and strength of bones and teeth. Your heart, muscles and nerves also need calcium to function properly which makes it an important nutrient in fighting conditions like diabetes, cancer and hypertension.
Magnesium is a catalyst for enzyme reactions, improving the functioning of your nerves and keeping blood from becoming too thin. Healthy doses of magnesium like those found in the Myers’ Cocktail can help relieve migraine headaches, PMS and improve bone and cardiovascular health.
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 is a powerful antioxidant that’s known to battle free radicals within the body, helping to improve and strengthen the immune system and significantly minimize inflammation.
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.
Panthenol (Vitamin B5)
The most studied role of pantothenic acid in health support is its incorporation into a molecule called Coenzyme A (CoA). This molecule is arguably on the short list of the most important chemicals needed to sustain life.
