The Myers’ Cocktail has been popularized in recent years, particularly by medical professionals interested in the connection between medicine and nutrition. The specific combination of vitamins and minerals included in the original Myers’Cocktail formula is believed to treat a wide range of conditions, including:
- Chemotherapy side effects
- Chronic and Adrenal Fatigue syndromes
- Digestion problems
- Heart concerns
- Metabolic Syndrome
- Migraines and headaches
- Sleep deprivation
- Unhealthy cholesterol
In many cases, IV therapy is determined to be more safe and effective and better tolerated than more traditional or conventional treatments. IV therapy may also be a better choice in addressing nutrient deficiencies as the nutrients in the cocktail are typically present at much higher concentrations than in other delivery modes such as oral treatments.
Nutrients included in Cleanz Medical Spa’s Myers’ Cocktail and their purposes include:
- Vitamin B Complex: Comprised of eight different vitamins, the B Complex is essential in supporting many functions. For example, they aid the body in turning food into energy and in developing the neurotransmitters in the brain that are responsible for mood. In fact, mood issues, digestion problems, and fatigue and exhaustion can all result from B vitamin deficiencies.
- Vitamin B12: Often included in IV cocktails in addition to B complex vitamins, B12 is critical to many systemic processes. B12 helps prevent anemia while it also jumpstarts the production of red blood cells. It also aids in the development of DNA and ensures the proper functioning of nerve cells.
- Glutathione: Considered to be THE master antioxidant for whole-body wellness, glutathione plays a role in many different systems and is recognized for its particular success in supporting the immune system and aiding in anti-aging efforts. A “tripeptide of three amino acids,” glutathione binds to free radicals (unstable atoms that cause damage to cells, free radicals may lead to a variety of illnesses and exacerbate the aging process) and helps flush them from the body. It is known to positively impact heart disease, cardiovascular disease, cancer, dementia, AIDS, and epilepsy, among other conditions.
- Vitamin C: As an IV therapy, Vitamin C has, in recent years, gained a lot of attention for its effectiveness in fighting infections and diseases, including the common cold, cardiovascular disease, cancer, stroke, and eye disease. It also contributes to the production of collagen in the skin.
- Magnesium: It is said that magnesium plays a role in more than 300 different biochemical reactions and may be deficient in many people, especially women and people who are dieting. Magnesium’s most significant contributions are to aiding in digestion, particularly in the absorption and utilization of proteins, fats, and carbohydrates. Deficiencies in magnesium may result in obesity, anxiety, or hypoglycemia.
- Zinc: In addition to being a well-known cold remedy, zinc also helps with hormone production, facilitates digestion, acts as an anti-inflammatory agent, is good for the skin, is a potential cancer fighter, aids in muscle growth and repair, and is antibacterial and supports immune functions. Like glutathione, zinc is an antioxidant and may help slow the aging process. Deficiencies in zinc may impact fertility, diabetes, wound healing, immunity, weight (gain or loss), and concentration.
- Saline (1,000 milliliters): Saline is used in the Myers’ Cocktail and other IV therapies to hydrate or rehydrate the body. The sodium and chloride ions in saline are electrolytes and match the type and concentrations of electrolytes found in plasma and thus has no adverse effects on blood cells.
