Give your immune system a boostwith myers cocktail iv therapy

What is MYERS COCKTAIL IV therapy

The Myers Cocktail IV is a powerful combination of micronutrients that help support and enhance overall wellness.

Developed by the late physician John Myers, MD in 1954, it was used to treat various medical conditions including fatigue, migraines, the common cold, chronic sinusitis, seasonal allergies, fibromyalgia, depression and anxiety.

Over the past several years, the Myers cocktail has become widely known for its immune boosting properties – as both a preventative and therapeutic treatment.

We include 200mg of glutathione to every Myers IV for added antioxidant benefits.

What's in the Myers Cocktail?

The Myer’s Cocktail is a potent combination of vitamins, minerals, electrolytes and antioxidants. You’ll receive a 500ml IV bag with the following:

  • Magnesium 600mg
  • Hydroxocobalamin (B12) 1.5mg
  • Pyridoxine (B6) 150mg
  • B-Complex: B1 5mg, B2 0.1mg, B3 5mg, Dexpanthenol (B5) 0.1mg/ml, B6 0.1mg/ml
  • Ascorbic acid (Vitamin C) 3330mg
  • Calcium 60mg

Magnesium is needed for over 300 chemical reactions in the body. Magnesium supports cardiovascular health, muscles, nerves, bones, mood, brain health and metabolism. Also helps prevent inflammation, and strengthens the immune system.

B-Complex Vitamins (B1,B2,B3,B5,B6) support energy, weight control, mood, managing stress, concentration, and memory.

Vitamin B12 supports red blood cell function, energy metabolism and neurological health. Vitamin B12 is also plays a role in immune system health. Research indicates a link between B12 deficiency and peripheral neuropathy, pernicious anemia, cognitive decline or Alzheimer disease.

Vitamin C provides antioxidant protection from free radicals and oxidative processes, synthesis of collagen, and adrenal support. IV administration of vitamin C can raise plasma to much higher concentrations than oral vitamin C.

Calcium assists in increasing the levels of blood calcium for strong and healthy teeth and bones and to help support diseases and conditions caused by calcium deficiencies.


A recent study found that supplementing with nine key vitamins (B1, B2, B3, B5, B6, B9, B8, B12 and C) and three minerals (iron, magnesium and zinc) is highly likely to result in health benefits in the areas of mental and physical fatigue, as well as cognitive and psychological functions. The Myers cocktail contains 8 of the nutrients studied.

In one placebo-controlled trial of the Myer’s cocktail use in fibromyalgia, study participants saw an improvement in tender points, pain, depression and quality of life following the treatments.


Myer’s Cocktail IV therapy is for anyone who wants to boost their immune system, boost energy levels, help prevent or shorten illness or for the cognitive benefits.

Many patients receiving a Myer’s experience increased energy and an overall feeling of improved wellness.
