At Dr. Stem Cell in Encino, California, Bruce Fishman, MD, specializes in regenerative orthopedic care. The goal of regenerative medicine is to address the root cause of disease by applying treatments that heal tissues and restore function. The Myers’ cocktail is a form of IV nutrient therapy designed to support the body by delivering crucial vitamins and minerals directly to the bloodstream.
Let’s explore some of the potential benefits of the Myers’ cocktail in more detail.
The precise blend of nutrients is typically customized based on each patient’s needs and health goals. The most common formulation of this IV infusion typically includes:
These nutrients are chosen for their role in rejuvenating the body, and the blend is generally well-tolerated. Some formulations may also include other vitamins, minerals, and amino acids, such as glutathione, taurine, and selenium.
Its ability to boost energy levels is one of the primary benefits of the Myers’ cocktail. The B vitamins in the cocktail are essential for energy production in the body. They help the body convert food into energy, which can help combat fatigue and improve overall energy levels.
The magnesium in the mixture is essential for muscle function and energy production. Magnesium is involved in over 300 biochemical reactions in the body, including the production of ATP, the body's primary source of energy.
By providing the body with the necessary nutrients for energy production, the Myers’ cocktail can help improve overall energy levels and combat fatigue.
Another benefit of the Myers’ cocktail is its ability to support immune system function. It delivers high levels of vitamin C, a powerful antioxidant that supports immune system function. When delivered intravenously, vitamin C can help boost the immune system's ability to fight off infections and illnesses.
The zinc in the Myers’ cocktail is also essential for immune system function. Zinc helps to activate immune cells and is involved in the production of antibodies.
Chronic stress can wreak havoc on your overall health, yet most American adults report chronic work and life-related stress. Magnesium is a calming mineral that helps muscles relax and reduces stress levels.
Magnesium is also involved in the production of neurotransmitters, such as serotonin and dopamine, which are important for regulating mood. Not only can magnesium reduce stress, but it also can help combat anxiety to help you feel better all around.
Chronic inflammation can lead to a variety of health issues, including arthritis, and heart disease. The blend of nutrients in the Myers’ cocktail have anti-inflammatory properties and can help reduce inflammation throughout the body.
Vitamin C is a strong antioxidant that can help calm inflammation by neutralizing free radicals in the body. Magnesium also has anti-inflammatory properties and can help reduce inflammation in the muscles and joints.
The Myers’ cocktail can be beneficial for individuals who are experiencing fatigue or stress or who just want to feel their best and support their health.
