Myers' Cocktail Injections in Santa Monica, CA
What Are Myers' Cocktail Injections?
The Myers' cocktail is a specially formulated intravenous (IV) infusion of B vitamins, magnesium, calcium, and vitamin C. It is designed to increase the blood concentration of these essential vitamins and minerals rapidly, a process which is typically unachievable through oral supplementation or intramuscular injections.
Intravenous injection bypasses barriers often faced with oral supplementation, such as limited absorption in the gastrointestinal (GI) tract, and avoids commonly experienced side effects, such as upset stomach and diarrhea.
The Myers' cocktail has been safely used for decades to treat patients with a variety of chronic health conditions and is now popularly utilized by integrative healthcare practitioners to help healthy individuals maintain their overall wellness, boost energy levels, and prevent illness.

How Does a Myers' Cocktail IV Work?
Under healthy conditions, nutrients are absorbed into the bloodstream and reach cells following the digestive process in the GI system. However, sometimes the digestive system does not function properly, as can occur with maldigestion or gut conditions such as leaky gut syndrome, IBS, or Crohn's disease. In these situations, it can become more difficult for the cells throughout the body to obtain the nutrients they need to maintain health.
By injecting the vitamins directly into the bloodstream, the nutrients can be more easily absorbed into the body. When the blood becomes oversaturated with these vitamins and minerals, the cells absorb them into their mitochondria, increasing the cell's energy production. This natural approach allows the body to rejuvenate its healing response at the cellular level to overcome many troubling health conditions.
