Myers’ Cocktail is a formula of intravenous vitamins and minerals that was pioneered by the late Dr. John Myers, MD. Many of his patients who found relief with these infusions sought continued treatments who became one of the major proponents of this treatment. 

 

The “Cocktail” includes magnesium, calcium, B-vitamins (including B12), and Vitamin C and is given by a slow IV push or slow infusion to achieve concentrations of nutrients that are not obtainable with oral administration.

For certain patients, this treatment can be seen as a multivitamin administered directly into the bloodstream. If patients have difficulty digesting food or for another reason do not receive full benefit from taking vitamin pills, they may respond well to an IV nutritional regimen. For other patients, this therapy provides targeted treatment for a variety of medical conditions.

Myers’ Cocktail has suggested that it can be clinically effective against acute asthma attacks, migraines, fatigue (including chronic fatigue syndrome), fibromyalgia, acute muscle spasms, colds, chronic sinusitis, seasonal allergies, chronic depression/anxiety, and other disorders.

A recent randomized controlled study conducted by Yale investigators evaluated the effect of the Myers’ Cocktail on patients with fibromyalgia.2. They found that weekly infusions led to clinically significant improvement in tender points, pain, depression, and quality of life directly following treatment, with sustained improvement even after four weeks from the last infusion, but the results did not achieve statistical significance in this study.

What is Glutathione?

Glutathione is a naturally-occurring peptide produced by every cell in the human body, including immune cells. This powerhouse molecule is made up of three essential amino acids: cysteine, glutamate, and glycine.

Glutathione is an extremely powerful antioxidant and the key to almost all body functions. When glutathione is depleted it results in cell death. When glutathione levels are sufficiently high it protects your cells from damage by free radicals, among other benefits.3

What are the benefits of glutathione injection?

Our Boost shots are convenient & customizable, so you can add extra glutathione or even build your own.

Glutathione injections are perfect for anyone who wants all the benefits of glutathione but may not have time for an IV treatment.

Injecting glutathione directly into the bloodstream as a shot or IV treatment is the best way to supplement your glutathione levels. Glutathione injections only take five minutes and can give you a quick boost you'll benefit from all week.

Glutathione helps you detox by supporting your liver. Even if you eat a perfect diet, your liver can still become overburdened from air pollution and other environmental toxins. IV hydration with a glutathione IV push can help support healthy liver function and detoxification.

Glutathione for fertility

Can glutathione increase fertility?

Infertility can stem from any number of problems, including oxidative stress. Whenever there’s an imbalance between antioxidants (like glutathione) and free radicals, it has an effect on the reproductive systems of both men and women.4

Free radicals, also called reactive oxygen species (ROS) can interfere at a cellular level, cause diseased cells, and even threaten cell survival. High levels of ROS can contribute to infertility and adverse pregnancy outcomes.

Glutathione is not only an ultra-powerful antioxidant, it helps maintain all other antioxidants. Increasing the body’s level of antioxidants promotes repair of damaged cell structures, helps counteract free radical production, and helps clear out accumulated reactive oxygen species.

Does glutathione help PCOS?

One study5 has shown that in women with PCOS, a high dose of glucose caused:

  • An increase in oxidative stress markers

  • A decrease in glutathione levels

  • An increase in testosterone levels associated with the lowered glutathione

A different study assessed oxidative stress and GSH levels in women with the polycystic ovarian syndrome. They found women with PCOS had lower glutathione levels and more oxidative stress compared to women without the condition6. Increasing glutathione may be helpful for women with PCOS to mitigate the enhanced oxidative stress markers associated with the syndrome.

Glutathione & the thyroid

Is glutathione good for thyroid problems?

Glutathione plays an important role in thyroid hormone regulation, and glutathione is an essential factor in maintaining your health – including the health of your thyroid.

Oxidative stress in thyroid cells can interfere with hormone production. To combat oxidative stress, the thyroid produces glutathione peroxidase, an enzyme.7

The thyroid uses large quantities of the mineral selenium to produce both glutathione and hormones. Too much oxidative stress leaves the thyroid without enough selenium to function properly.

Glutathione IV treatments can support optimal thyroid function by reducing oxidative stress and leaving more selenium available for hormone production.

AMINO ACID INFUSION

$175.00 OR 2 FOR $325.00

Amino acids are the building blocks of life. Our body uses 23 amino acids, connected in different patterns to build protein molecules. Why is this important? Because your whole body is made of protein. It is used in the synthesis of muscle (actin, myosin), skin and connective tissues (collagen), enzymes (digestion of food) and hormones (insulin, growth hormone, thyroid hormone).

Amino acids are even used to make neurotransmitters like serotonin, dopamine, adrenaline and GABA, which influence our moods, carvings and behaviors.

It goes without saying that we need a constant supply of amino acids to maintain optimal health. The problem is many people don’t get enough amino acids despite eating abundant amounts.

When this happens your body doesn’t have the raw materials required to synthesize compounds that build your body and keep you healthy. This IV is designed to begin to solve that problem. It is the fastest and most effective way to deliver amino acids directly into your circulation, boosting your reserves and sending them to your cells in high concentration.
