The Myers’ Cocktail, named after creator Dr. John Myers MD, is a great IV infusion for first-timers or those wanting the true essentials. This classic IV formula contains Magnesium Chloride, Calcium Chloride, Vitamin C, Vitamin B-12, and a Vitamin B-Complex.
Magnesium Chloride – 400 mg
Calcium Chloride – 100 mg
Ascorbic Acid (Vitamin C) – 1500 mg
Hydroxocobalamin (B-12) – 1 mg
Thiamine (B-1) – 100 mg
Riboflavin (B-2) 2 mg
Niacin (B-3) 100 mg
Dexpanthenol (B-5) 2 mg
Pyridoxine (B-6) 2 mg
Magnesium: Plays a key role in energy production, stress reduction, and muscle relaxation. Decreases inflammation, increases sleep quality, and induces an overall calming effect.
Calcium: Works in combination with magnesium to open up channels in the cells, allowing them to communicate more effectively. Also supports heart and bone health, increases muscle tone, and nerve conduction.
Vitamin C: Primary vitamin for the immune system and white blood cell support, decreases fatigue, and increases serotonin levels.
Hydroxocobalamin (Vitamin B-12): Increases energy, improves mood, decreases anxiety, and increases brain function.
B-Complex (B-1, B-2, B-3, B-5, B-6): Provides a more complete energy boost when combined with B-12, increases metabolism, supports cell health, and decreases stress.
All of these critical nutrients are mixed in a one liter bag of Normal Saline, which is a pH-balanced mix of water and salt (Sodium Chloride), providing excellent hydration and replenishment of electrolytes.
This IV is so beneficial because it increases the blood concentrations of these vitamins and minerals more significantly than supplements taken orally. Absorption of nutrients taken by mouth can be decreased by digestion and metabolism, especially if there are pre-existing issues with absorption or food sensitivities. Furthermore, chronic conditions or inflammation cause the body’s cells to use nutrients more quickly. When the vitamins, minerals, and electrolytes are delivered directly to the bloodstream, the metabolic processes in the stomach and intestines are bypassed, allowing for the significant absorption and replenishment of vital nutrients.
