Myers’ Cocktail



The Myers’ Cocktail is a classic IV formulation originally pioneered by Dr. John Myers at Johns Hopkins Hospital in the 1960’s as a treatment formula for a range of ailments including chronic fatigue syndrome, fibromyalgia, chronic depression, muscle fatigue, supportive care for the cold/flu, GI illnesses, migraines, cancer, and multiple other conditions. Its popularity has only grown over the last 50 years. Our formula has built on the original to include the following:

Magnesium Chloride: Mineral supplement used to alleviate stomach aches, indigestion, muscle cramps and support optimal nerve, muscle, bone, and heart health.

Dexpanthenol (B5), Thiamine HCl (B1), Niacinamide (B3), Riboflavin-5-Phosphate (B2), Pyridoxine HCl (B6), and methylcobalamin (B12): B complex formula which aids multiple major processes in the body.  All B vitamins help convert food into energy, which explains the natural energy boost following supplementation. They also act as antioxidants, important mediators in protein repair, cellular signaling, neurotransmitter production, DNA synthesis, and red blood cell production. B12 is the most popular B vitamin and is very commonly related to sensory deficits, cognitive decline, balance issues, and fatigue when deficient.

Ascorbic Acid (Vitamin C): Powerful antioxidant that plays key roles in tissue repair, collagen synthesis, immune health, and even memory health via neurotransmitter synthesis. Scurvy is a rare, severe disease caused by lack of Vitamin C, and most often presenting with fatigue, anemia, gum disease, hair changes, skin changes, and bleeding.

Calcium: Calcium is most often known for its role in bone health, but it also plays a role in heart burn, muscle contractions, and blood pressure.  Low calcium can cause weak bones (osteomalacia), brittle nails, dry skin, muscle cramps or even a serious neuromuscular condition called “tetany”.
