Even though there is vitamins and minerals in the healthy foods we eat, sometimes it may not be enough, especially if there is problems with absorption, metabolism, etc. To help with supplementation, we offer IV Vitamin Cocktails.
One of the most popular vitamin cocktails is the Myer’s Cocktail. The Myers’ Cocktail is a powerful blend of vitamins and mineral designed for intravenous (IV) use. It is named after the late Dr. John Myers. M.D., a Maryland physician that used IV nutrients to treat his patients in the 1970’s, and popularized by Dr. Alan Gaby, the president of the American Holistic Medical Association.
We use intravenous administration of vitamins and nutrients because it achieves much higher serum concentrations than when taken by mouth. This has shown to make the vitamins more effective, as they are absorbed directly into the bloodstream instead of waiting for digestion.
While the Vitamin cocktail blend is dependent on the needs of the patient, the formula usually contains:
- Vitamin B12
- Vitmain B6
- Panthenol (B5)
- Vitamin C
It is used to treat conditions such as:
- Migraine Headaches
- Upper Respiratory Infections
- Seasonal Allergies
- Chronic Urticaria
- Narcotic Withdrawal
- Menstrual Pain
The treatments are generally safe. The most common side effects include:
- Sensation of heat and flushing (magnesium side effect)
- Taste of vitamins in the mouth
- Lightheadedness and low blood pressure if given rapidly
- Small risk of pain, infections, and inflammation at injection site (as in all IV infusions)
