Before we get into the benefits of Myer’s cocktail first we need to understand what’s in it and why it’s beneficial for your health.
Myer’s cocktail is a type of IV therapy we offer at SOHMA Integrated Medicine in Lakewood and Long Beach CA. Yes, the same kind of IV drip that is used in medicine and hospitals can be used as therapy. Myer’s cocktail is a perfectly crafted blend of nutrients and vitamins including Vitamin C, B Complex, Magnesium and Calcium suspended in a saline solution delivered through an IV drip directly to your bloodstream.
Detoxification and Hydration
Myer’s cocktail is used for many reasons, one of which is rehydration and detoxification. Since you are receiving the Myer’s cocktail through an IV drip, your body absorbs the fluids more efficiently than if you were to drink some water.
With such a concentrated amount of fluids entering the body it helps you to detoxify from accumulated toxins that may be in your system from your day to day life. Whether its from poor habits or simply because you live in a large metropolitan city and have to deal with the pollution and chemicals that come with it, a Myer’s cocktail can help.
Often you see people rehydrating with Myer’s cocktail after difficult days exercising or working. Though it’s not exclusively used for these reasons.
Boosts Energy Levels
It would be great if a balanced and healthy lifestyle was possible for everyone however, we understand that not everyone is able to. Myer’s cocktail can help with your lack of energy with the vitamin B complex which can give you the boost you need. There is no need to reach out for an energy drink filled with chemicals, sugars and caffeine. Myer’s cocktail can give you that boost you need to get through your week naturally without filling your body with unnecessary junk like energy drinks that only give you an artificial boost of energy before your body crashes.
Boosts Immune System
Myer’s cocktail contains Vitamin C which is well known for helping your body’s immune system. Vitamin C helps prevent and fight common viral infections like the cold. Supplementing your meals or drinks with Vitamin C can help but consuming too many foods with Vitamin C can irritate the stomach. With Myer’s cocktail IV therapy you bypass the digestive system altogether which can destroy Vitamin C before you can absorb it. The IV drip lets your body absorb the Vitamin C faster, and at a higher concentration.
Lack of Vitamin C can lead to you feeling weak, tired and irritable. It can cause you to have dry skin which makes it difficult to heal wounds. In some cases Vitamin C deficiency can cause joint pain and swelling which can lead to arthritis.
Helps with Migraines
Migraine pains can be incredibly debilitating, often not even letting you sit in a well lit room. Once again Myer’s cocktail can help, the blend of nutrients can work together to reduce the pain and symptoms caused by migraines. The anti-inflammatory properties of Vitamin C can help relieve some of the tension built up in your neck muscles and head. Vitamin B complex has been shown to reduce the duration and intensity of migraines. When balanced correctly it may even reduce the frequency of migraines.
Regularly using Myer’s cocktail the magnesium and calcium can work together to also prevent future migraines. Lower levels of magnesium can result in constricted blood vessels in the brain which can be one of the triggers for migraines. A balanced intake of calcium has been linked with reducing the frequency of migraines as well due to calcium playing an important role in regulating muscle functions like relaxation and contractions.
