Having a good balance of nutrients is essential for keeping the body in optimal condition, which is why the Myers cocktail is such a popular infusion. Anyone can benefit from the Myers cocktail, from healthy people needing an additional boost in mood or energy, to those with lowered immune system function, to those who have a higher need for nutrients, such as athletes and people under high levels of acute or chronic stress.
The Myers cocktail is a widely known intravenous multinutrient infusion, consisting of a special combination of vitamin C, a range of B vitamins, magnesium and calcium. These components act effectively together to boost mood, general health and the immune system for the following reasons:
- Vitamin C is crucial to the immune system as it lessens oxidative stress and acts as a coenzyme for the biosynthesis of many important biomolecules.
- The combination of B vitamins are integral to proper metabolic and neural functions.
- Magnesium is one of the most important elements involved in cellular signaling and the electrolyte balance, and is crucial to proper cell functioning.
