What is Myers Cocktail?
Named after Dr John Myers MD, the Myers Cocktail is a mixture of magnesium, calcium, B Vitamins and Vitamin C, intravenously injected over a period of 30 minutes in my practice. Myers Cocktail and has been shown to be beneficial for a broad range of ailments. **
The Myers cocktail works by increasing the blood concentration of the essential vitamins and minerals that make up the cocktail, beyond what can be achieved by taking the supplements orally **.
For instance, when Vitamin C is given intravenously it has been found to reach blood concentrations at least 50 times higher than what can be achieved when Vitamin C is taken orally. When nutrients are given intravenously the digestion phase is bypassed, which means the body won’t use these nutrients at a faster rate and because they are introduced directly into the blood stream energy can be produced more efficiently in the cells. **
