Chronic illness can sap your energy, compromise your immune system, and lead to feelings of fatigue, weakness, and pain. IV therapy using a recipe called the Myer’s Cocktail can help you feel more like yourself.
At DERMABARE, a med spa located in Laguna Niguel, California, Ramin Tayani, MD and his team provide immune system support using safe, effective IV infusion and hydration therapy, including administration of the Myers’ Cocktail.
What’s in a Myers’ Cocktail?
The Myers’ Cocktail has been in use for more than 60 years as a way to help patients with chronic illness feel better and have more energy. So, what’s in this IV bag, and how does it help support your immune system?
The Myers’ IV solution contains:
- Glutathione, a tripeptide that can help strengthen your whole body, including your immune system
- Magnesium, a mineral that supports enzymatic reactions and immune function
- Vitamin B12, which can boost metabolism and increase red blood cell counts
- Vitamin C, which enhances your immune system and helps to reduce inflammation
- Calcium, which helps boost your immune response by bolstering cell signaling
Studies following the use of the Myers’ Cocktail have been promising. In one research group of patients with fibromyalgia, those who were given the Myers’ Cocktail reported dramatic improvement in their quality of life, as tender points, nonspecific pain, and depression all lessened immediately following treatment. And the relief was still present four weeks later.
In a smaller, narrower study using vitamin C-infused IV therapy only, cancer patients reported an improved quality of life. There are many additional reports of the Myers’ Cocktail and other types of IV therapy benefiting people with long-term illness or chronic pain.
Tweaking the Myers’ Cocktail
At DERMABARE, we’ve taken the Myers’ Cocktail and created versions that target other specific symptoms while maintaining the same powerful effects as the original.
For extra immune benefits, we add additional zinc to help you fight off infection or recover faster from the common cold.
For anxiety, magnesium helps to regulate your brain systems that manage stress responses and maintain a stable mood.
For performance, we add dietary supplements like M.I.C., taurine, and carnosine. These amino acids, delivered through the IV, can help you burn excess fat, gain endurance, and improve your cardiovascular health.
For hangovers, vitamins, antioxidants, and electrolytes added to the IV help give your system support during recovery and reduce the headaches and stomach issues caused by alcohol use.
