What is Myers’ Cocktail?
Myers’ Cocktail is an intravenous vitamin nutrient supplement, which was formulated more than 30 years ago by Dr. John Myers, MD. The potent solution contains a specially balanced combination of different vitamins and minerals. It is given intravenously to help the treatment of a range of ailments and to increase energy.
The standard Myers’ Cocktail contains magnesium, calcium, selenium, vitamin B5 (dexpanthenol), vitamin B6 (pyridoxine), vitamin B12 (hydroxycobalamin), vitamin B-complex, and vitamin C. Vitamin C is an important antioxidant that helps the immune system ward off bacterial and viral infections. It also makes certain metabolic processes work better.
Intravenous treatments are more effective than oral therapy for increasing blood levels of nutrients. It also improves the transport of nutrients from the blood into the cells more efficiently.
