The Ultimate IV Vitamin Infusion
Myers’ Cocktail, named for its inventor John Myers, M.D., a Johns Hopkins physician who developed it in the 1970s, is a powerful combination of essential vitamins and minerals including important antioxidants. This combination of nutrients that Myers discovered may help patients battle a number of health conditions.
In addition to helping patients battle illness and other chronic health conditions, Dr. Myers discovered this cocktail can also work wonders for patients in good health, helping them to detoxify so they can achieve a better balance of healthy nutrients, boost their immune systems, improve their metabolisms and provide vital energy throughout their bodies.
When to Infuse?
Each patient is different, however, common administration is once monthly for optimal effects. At Revitalist, we know the science behind the ingredients. We do not use pre-mixed vitamins as may be common in the vitamin infusion industry. We are able to tailor each infusion to meet the client specifically where their needs are, adjusting doses of each vitamin accordingly. Sometimes patients need more frequent or less frequent infusions, but we adjust according to your needs to optimize your cell health to keep your body functioning at the highest levels.
What Am I Getting in the Myer's Cocktail?
Ascorbic Acid, better known as Vitamin C, is a powerful antioxidant that acts as a natural anti-inflammatory with vital roles in cellular detox, treatment of infectious disease, and supporting the quality of life of patients undergoing treatment for cancer. Vitamin C powers the immune system for optimum function. Thought to be cytotoxic to cancer cells, Vitamin C infusions can be part of your total cancer care. Vitamin C enhances wound healing after surgery and biopsies. In IV doses, vitamin C has anti-stress and antidepressant properties. Animal studies have shown that high-dose vitamin C blocks tumor growth in certain models of cancer.

Calcium is a mineral found in many foods. The body needs calcium to maintain strong bones and to carry out many important functions. Almost all calcium is stored in bones and teeth, where it supports their structure and hardness. The body also needs calcium for muscles to move and for nerves to carry messages between the brain and parts of the body. In addition, calcium is used to help blood vessels move blood throughout the body and helps release hormones and enzymes that act in almost every function in the human body. Those with low calcium levels may experience muscle cramps, low bone densities, and the feeling of being light headed.

Magnesium is the fourth most abundant mineral in the body and is essential to good health. Approximately 50% of total body magnesium is found in bone. The other half is found predominantly inside cells of body tissues and organs. Only 1% of magnesium is found in blood, but the body works very hard to keep blood levels of magnesium constant. Magnesium is needed for more than 300 biochemical reactions in the body. It helps maintain normal muscle and nerve function, keeps the heart rhythm steady, supports a healthy immune system, and keeps bones strong. Magnesium also helps regulate blood sugar levels, promotes normal blood pressure, and is known to be involved in energy metabolism and protein synthesis. There is an increased interest in the role of magnesium in preventing and managing disorders such as hypertension, cardiovascular disease, and diabetes.

Thiamine, Vitamin B1, enables the body to use carbohydrates as energy. It is essential for glucose metabolism, and it plays a key role in nerve, muscle, and heart function. Those at greatest risk of Thiamine Deficiencies include those with increased levels of alcohol consumption, intestinal disorders causing malabsorption issues (some examples may include gastric bypass, Crohn’s disease, irritable bowel syndrome, gastric cancers). Deficiencies can include symptoms of nerve damage, short-term memory loss, and muscle weakness.

Riboflavin, Vitamin B2, is a vitamin that is needed for growth and overall good health. Recent studies mention the negative effects on cardiac and neurologic function when a deficiency is noted. Vitamin B2 helps the body break down carbohydrates, proteins and fats to produce energy, and it allows oxygen to be used by the body. “Riboflavin is also used for the development and function of the skin, lining of the digestive tract, blood cells and other vital organs,” Dr. Sherry Ross, women’s health expert at Providence Saint John’s Health Center in Santa Monica, California.
Deficiency can cause anemia, sore throat, mouth or lip sores, inflammation of the skin and swelling of soft tissue in the mouth. These symptoms can show up after just a few days of deficiency, according to the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition.

Vitamin B5, Pantothenic Acid, is one of the most important vitamins for human life. It is necessary for making blood cells, and it helps you convert the food you eat into energy much like the other known seven B vitamins. All B vitamins help you convert the protein, carbohydrates, and fats you eat into energy. Vitamin B5 also helps for maintenance of healthy skin, hair, and eyes, proper functioning of the nervous system and liver, healthy digestive tract, making red blood cells, which carry oxygen throughout the body, making sex and stress-related hormones in the adrenal glands.

Hydroxocobalamin, Vitamin B12, is an injectable form of vitamin B12. Vitamin B12 helps your body use fat and carbohydrates for energy and allows it the ability to generate new proteins at a greater rate. It is also important for healthy functioning blood, cells, and nerves. Most people get enough vitamin B12 in their diet, but a deficiency may occur in certain health conditions (e.g., poor nutrition, stomach/intestinal problems, infection, cancer). Serious vitamin B12 deficiency may result in anemia, stomach problems, and nerve damage.
