The “Myers’ Cocktail” is a mixture of nutrients that work together to help patients get the vitamins they need to rehydrate, overcome chronic illnesses or improve their overall health. Myers’ Cocktail Specialists provide the Myers’ Cocktail as a therapeutic means to optimize nutritional stores in the body. As with all forms of Intravenous Therapy, the Myers’ Cocktail mixture bypasses the digestive system, directly inputting nutrients into the bloodstream to increase their potency. When these same nutrients are taken orally or in food substances, they must pass through the liver and then to the small intestines. The trip through the body’s digestive system causes the nutrients to lose their potency, resulting in a reduced dosage of nutrients. This is known as the first-pass effect.

Named after physician John Myers, M.D., the Myers’ Cocktail was originally formulated over 40 years ago and is frequently modified and customized to help men and women improve their nutrient levels. As an internist, Dr. John Myers learned that putting high dosages of particular nutrients into the body could greatly benefit a wide range of health concerns. Providing patients with high levels of important vitamins and minerals, the Myers’ Cocktail contains several different nutrients that can help patients improve their overall health.

Typical nutrients in the Myers’ Cocktail include:

Vitamin C

Working as a major antioxidant and helping to repel free radicals, vitamin c is a highly important vitamin, as it can greatly benefit the immune system and reduce inflammation. It also plays a role in building cartilage, collage, blood vessels and tendons, all of which are used on a daily basis and need to be repaired with new cells.


Catalyzing over 300 enzyme reactions, coagulating the blood and improving nerve transmission, magnesium is essential for a healthy body. Myers’ Cocktail uses healthy dosages of this mineral to help patients improve from a wide variety of ailments.


Calcium is an essential nutrient in the human body that helps to build and maintain bones and teeth. IV Therapists use Calcium to prevent diseases such as osteoporosis and potentially protect against hypertension, cancer and diabetes.

Thiamine (B1)

Generating energy from carbohydrates and helping the body to build RNA and DNA, Thiamine is an important vitamin in Myers’ Cocktail, as it can improve energy levels and metabolism. IV Therapy offers customized dosages of B1 in Myers’ Cocktail to help conditions such as chronic fatigue syndrome, adrenal fatigue syndrome and weight loss resistance.

Pantothenic Acid (B5)

This important nutrient helps to synthesize cholesterol, keep the liver and eyes healthy, produce red blood cells and maintain the appearance of skin and hair, while potentially lowering LDL cholesterol and reducing triglyceride levels. B5 can help with Diabetes, Metabolic Syndrome, high cholesterol, stamina, endurance and high triglyceride levels.

Pyridoxine (B6)

Producing important hormones such as serotonin, melatonin and norepinephrine, Pyridoxine helps to balance the endocrine system, improve moods and regulate sleep cycles. It can also benefit the muscular, nervous, digestive and immune systems, which may help improve disorders that include autoimmune disorders, irritable bowel syndrome, gastroesophageal reflux disease, Crohn’s disease, fibromyalgia and multiple sclerosis.

Cobalamin (B12):

Preventing pernicious anemia is one of Vitamin B12’s most important functions, as it fuels the production of red blood cells. Producing DNA and keeping the nerve cells healthy is another essential function of Vitamin B12, and the Myers’ Cocktail provides healthy dosages of this essential vitamin.
