Ingredients in a Myers’ Cocktail
A Myers’ cocktail contains vitamins and other ingredients that your body needs. You receive the ingredients in a Myers’ cocktail through an IV line, which helps to ease certain symptoms. The ingredients in a Myers’ cocktail include:
Saline:Saline, aka saltwater, is what delivers the nutrients in the Myers’ cocktail to your system. The saline also replenishes your electrolytes, which can help keep you hydrated and energized.
Vitamin B complex:Vitamin B complex includes vitamins B6, riboflavin, folic acid and niacin. The B vitamin mixture can give you a nutrient boost.
Vitamin B12:Vitamin B12 is often used to maintain nerve and blood cell health. It can help reduce feelings of fatigue.
Vitamin C:Many know vitamin C for its potential immune system boost, but the nutrient has other purposes. Vitamin C is an antioxidant that the body uses to maintain bones, muscle and blood vessels. The vitamin is also useful for collagen production and iron absorption.
Glutathione:Made from amino acids, the antioxidant can help detoxify your body. The substance may also help your immune system if it is weakened due to old age or illness.
Zinc:Zinc, an essential mineral can help your body resist infection. It also aids in tissue repair. Your body needs zinc, but it does not store it, meaning you need to get it from food or supplements to maintain your health.
Magnesium:Magnesium helps your circulatory system, keeping your blood pressure normal and your heart rhythm healthy. It also helps keeps your bones strong. A lack of magnesium can cause inflammation, which is associated with other diseases, such as heart disease.

The History Of The Myers' Cocktail
The Myers’ cocktail started as IV nutrient therapy. Dr. John Myers, a Baltimore physician, was administering IV nutrients to patients to help alleviate various symptoms, though he used different vitamins and dosages than what we use today. When he died in the 1980s, Dr. Alan Gaby took over his work and began helping Dr. Myers' patients. He altered the ingredients and dosage of the IV therapy and named the concoction the Myers’ cocktail in the doctor's honor. Over 15 years, Dr. Gaby administered over 15,000 Myers’ cocktail treatments. The treatment has only grown more popular since then.
