4 Benefits Of The Myers’ Cocktail Vitamin Drip

The Myers’ Cocktail Is A Supplement & Vitamin Drip Rediscovered To Battle Anti Aging, Chronic Disease Therapy & More

Once, it was fiction: a magical, anti aging potion that extends life, increases vitality, and fights disease. From ancient times onward, humankind has sought it. But myth became reality when Dr. John Myers of Johns Hopkins Hospital developed a potent vitamin drip that can be customized to patient needs.


But here’s the real shocker. The “Myers’ cocktail” has been with us since the 1960’s. So why has it taken so long to rediscover the disease fighting, anti aging advantages of this remarkable medical development? The National Stem Cell Institute (NSI) has been watching the emerging popularity of the vitamin drip. As a leading U.S.-based regenerative medicine clinic, NSI considers educating the public about medical trends an important part of its healthcare mission.

Sorting out fact from fiction about the Myers’ cocktail.

So let’s sort out fact from fiction about the Myers’ cocktail. Just how effective is it in boosting anti-aging and as an aid in the fight against some of today’s most challenging medical conditions, like Lyme disease and even Parkinson’s disease? Here are 4 things to know about the Myers’ cocktail.

4 Ways The Myer’s Cocktail Drip Can Help Fight Anti Aging & Chronic Disease

#1: What Exactly is the Myers’ Cocktail?

The Myers’ cocktail is a specially formulated vitamin drip. A “drip” is popular slang in both the public and medical worlds for intravenous (IV) therapy. IV therapy delivers liquid substances such as medication, hydration fluids, or –in the case of the Myers’ cocktail- vitamins directly into a vein. IV drips have been with us since the mid 19th century. But it wasn’t until the 20th century that IV drips became widely known for their potential as preventative medicine directed at anti aging and an aid in managing ongoing, chronic diseases.

The Myers’ Cocktail is comprised of a mix of medical-grade nutrients that are customized according to the medical condition being treated. Once a rising star in the early days of the preventative health movement, the Myers’ cocktail eventually faded from public consciousness. But since the increase of health-compromising, pre-packaged, and processed foods in the American home, the anti aging and disease-fighting benefits of the Myers’ cocktail have been re-discovered by doctors and patients alike.

According to Dr. Michael Janson,“Two-thirds of all meals are eaten outside the home, and nearly half of them are in fast food joints. You can’t expect this to provide all the necessary nutrients, and many studies show that it does not. A large number of people admitted to hospitals are found to have deficiencies, and the problems worsen in the hospital.”

Our appetite for fast food & sugar has risen over the decades, forcing the immune system to struggle.

Digestive troubles have increased over the decades as the nation’s appetite for fast food and sugar has risen. As intestinal and stomach disorders increase, the body’s ability to fully absorb nutrients has declined. This makes the immune system weaken more quickly as it struggles to fight off infection, bacteria, viruses, and cell mutations like cancer. Vitamin drips like the Myers’ cocktail aim to restore the body’s healthy, disease-fighting balance and natural anti aging qualities.

A vitamin drip directly infuses the bloodstream with a rich mélange of nutrients, ensuring that they are full absorbed at the cellular level. IV drips like the Myers’ cocktail are advocated by numerous medical experts. According to Dr. Mark Sircus:

“Nutrition and nutrient therapies are safer, cheaper and more effective than most other medical treatment. … Patients need adequate nutrition, not drugs, to recover from any illness, and sometimes they need that really fast.”

#2: The Ingredients in the Myers’ Cocktail

The types of nutrients that go into a Myers’ cocktail vary according to patient needs. The nutritional needs of someone interested in anti-aging therapy and someone who needs a disease-fighting vitamin drip can be vastly different. But some of the most frequently used vitamins and supplements include:

  • Magnesium Chloride. This supplement helps in the prevention of inflammation. It is also important in supporting a robust immune system. Magnesium chloride is also beneficial in the treatment of asthma, migraines, and high blood pressure.
  • Calcium Gluconate. This supplement helps to boost blood calcium, an essential element in building strong bones.
  • B Complex. The eight B vitamins in B complex are crucial for promoting healthy hair and skin, preventing memory loss, and managing stress.
  • Vitamin C. This vitamin has long been prized for its cancer-fighting qualities and acting as an antioxidant.

#3: The History Behind the Myers’ Cocktail

The 1960’s were tumultuous years, with traditional culture in the United States clashing with an emerging paradigm that would set the American stage for the remainder of the 20th century and into the 21st. But out of the turbulence came tremendous discoveries, particularly in the medical fields. It was against the backdrop of these times when internist Dr. John Myers began feeling the restraints of traditional reactive medicine.

Odd as it may seem today, the full impact that diet and nutrition for anti aging and the prevention of disease was only just beginning to be realized. Studies in nutrition as a serious player in the prevention of disease were just beginning to get underway. When the first community health centers in impoverished U.S. neighborhoods were opened, the results gave the medical community much to consider. The concept of disease prevention began to take root and win out over the old paradigm of addressing illness only after it has arisen.

Dr. Myers’ own studies centered on the importance of nutritional absorption.

Dr. Myers’ own studies centered on the importance of nutritional absorption into the body’s circulatory system. It became clear to him that only minimal amounts of nutrients were finding their way from the digestive tract into the bloodstream. Inspiration struck. Dr. Myers mixed key vitamins and minerals and turned them into an intravenous fluid. After conducting medical tests on animals, then himself, he tested his “cocktail” on human participants. The results were nothing less than remarkable.


The term “Myers’ cocktail” didn’t come into being until after Dr. John Myers’ death in 1984. At that time, the precise recipe for the doctor’s mixture was lost to the medical community. And so it remained a mystery until Dr. Alan Gaby meticulously experimented –vitamin by vitamin- until he came up with a formula that replicated Dr. Myers’ wonder blend.

Dr. Gaby named his development the “Myers’ cocktail” in homage to the man who started it all. In the decade following the development, Dr. Gaby oversaw more than 15,000 treatments. The doctor presented his findings at medical conferences across the U.S. In 2002, he published his medical review of the Myers’ cocktail in the Alternative Medicine Review. His review has been quoted often ever since.

Since the 1960’s the American diet has become more and more dependent on pre-packaged, fast foods.

MYERS DIET-JUNK FOODHis timing could not have been better. Since the early days of Dr. Myers original vitamin drip, the consumption of chemically laden, processed foods has risen exponentially. And it continues to do so. Since the 1960’s the American diet has become more and more dependent on pre-packaged grocery items and fast foods that are poor in nutrients and –in some cases- even interfere with the absorption of nutrients.

The Myer’s cocktail has come into its own. Because of their customizable nature, vitamin drips like the Myers’ cocktail have not only been used in the treatment and prevention of chronic medical conditions. The anti aging qualities of vitamin drips and injections have become enormously popular with celebrities and regular Americans alike.

#4: Medical Conditions that are Helped by Vitamin Drips

What Happens During Vitamin Drip Therapy?

Whether for anti-aging, recovering from a hangover, or treating serious illnesses, vitamin drips like the Myers’ cocktail are legitimate medical procedures. This means they must be performed by a qualified medical professional. Be sure to seek out licensed professionals when considering vitamin drip therapy. Regenerative medicine facilities like the National Stem Cell Institute make sure experts are on staff who are experienced in intravenous therapies like the Myers’ cocktail.

Legitimate clinics begin the therapy experience by having a staff member take the patient through a brief medical evaluation. Vitamin drips are customized right in the clinic, according to patient needs. The “cocktail” of nutrients will be administered as an intravenous drip, which is generally done via the patient’s forearm. The therapy time ranges between five and thirty minutes, depending on the condition being treated. While therapy is being administered, patients can relax and catch up on reading, close their eyes and rest, watch a video on a mobile device, or any other calm activity that can be performed in a quiet, stationary manner.

Before receiving vitamin drip therapy, it is recommended that you drink plenty of water and eat beforehand. This will help prevent feeling faint or dizzy during and after treatment.


Certain sensations during vitamin drip therapy are quite normal.

It is common for patients to experience a “flush” that begins in the chest area and travels through the body. Some patients say they feel a warming sensation in the pelvic area, while others report a metallic tang in the mouth. Still other patients say they experience heightened visual activity.

In any of these cases, the sensations are normal regardless if the drip is being administered for anti aging therapy or acute/chronic medical conditions. If at any time you’re unsure about what you’re feeling during the treatment, the medical professional who is administering the drip will be happy to address your concerns.

Vacation in a Bag!

Recipients of the Myers’ cocktail report feelings of energy, perkiness, and pain relief. Even when the therapy isn’t anti aging specific, many patients notice firmer facial tissue and a healthy glow to the skin. Patients who come away from vitamin drip therapy report feeling rested and a positive boost in mood, much like one feels after a vacation. It’s why the Myers’ Cocktail is sometimes called the “vacation-in-a-bag.”

Generally speaking, patients undergo Myers’ Cocktail treatments once weekly for a period of four weeks. Once this initial regimen is done, therapy is undergone one or two times monthly, depending on the need of the patient. Frequency varies according to the advice of the medical professional, patient needs, and the symptoms that are present.

Authentic Examples Of Vitamin Drip Results

In 2002, the Alternative Medicine Review published Dr. Alan R. Gaby’s medical review titled “Intravenous Nutrient Therapy: The ‘Myers’ Cocktail’.” In it, Dr. Gaby offered examples of results from actual case studies. Among them were:

  1. Sinusitis. A woman between 30 and 35 years of age battled chronic sinusitis for over a year. She underwent two Myers’ cocktail therapy sessions over the course of two consecutive days. As a result, her sinusitis symptoms should rapid improvement, and didn’t recur for over six months.
  2. Migraines. A middle-aged woman who suffered chronic migraine symptoms chose Myers’ Cocktail therapy after several other treatment types failed. She found the therapy so effective, she underwent seventy separate sessions over the span of six years.
  3. Flu. A collegiate wrestling athlete came down with the flu just prior to when he was slotted for a major competition. After a single Myers’ cocktail therapy session, the flu symptoms diminished. But, even more than this, the student experience a boost of energy. He competed better than in any prior wrestling tournament.

What Is In A Myers’ Cocktail?

Not all vitamin drips are created equal. The abundant blends of the Myers’ cocktail remain the preferred vitamin drips for therapies ranging from anti aging to cancer. Among the supplements and vitamins used in a Myers’ cocktail are:

B12 Complex. This B vitamin provides a rapid energy boost and is excellent for the health of the hair, skin, and nails. It is crucial in anti aging IV therapy.

High Dose Vitamin C. Medically administered high doses of vitamin C via Myers’ vitamin drips are prized for preventing stress and fatigue. This supplement is an essential therapy base for a variety of IV therapies, from anti aging to skin improvement to mega-boosting the immune system for a wide array of infectious and chronic diseases.


Glutathione. This is a prominent anti-oxidant used in the treatment of fatigue, depression, and other chronic illness symptoms.

Multi-Vitamin/Mineral IV. This is comprised of essential vitamins that literally range from A to Z. Its main purpose is to fight vitamin deficiencies.

MSM. MSM stands for methylsulfonylmethane. It is an amino acid administered for pain therapy.

Sodium Bicarbonate. You may already have this in the kitchen pantry in the form of baking soda. As great of a household item as it is, sodium bicarbonate’s true value is in its medically significant qualities for detoxifying, reducing inflammation, and decreasing acid reflux.

Alpha-Lipoic Acid (ALA). ALA is one of the super antioxidant found in vitamins such as C and E. It’s great for anti aging therapy, cancer IV drips, and in treating a variety of illnesses.

Know Before You Go!

Since the mid-20th century, the average U.S. diet has shifted radically from natural and unprocessed foods to high-sodium, high-salt, processed edibles that are chemically laden and nutritionally poor. Lifestyles have become increasingly sedentary. Is it any wonder that our energy stores are depleted, depression is pervasive, and recurring illness continues to plague our society?

Those who have tried vitamin drips like the Myers’ cocktail report significant improvement in energy and the ability to fight off infection. Many doctors prize it as an aid in combating many of the most challenging diseases known to medicine. And its anti aging qualities are sought after by celebrities and average Americans alike.

A vitamin drip like the Myers’ cocktail is a medical procedure that must be performed by a trained medical professional.

As mentioned previously, it’s important to keep in mind that –even as anti aging or hangover therapy- a vitamin drip like the Myers’ cocktail is medical procedure that must be performed by a trained medical professional.

Regenerative medicine facilities like the National Stem Cell Institute (NSI) often incorporate IV drip procedures as crucial auxiliary treatments that compliment stem cell and/or platelet rich plasma therapies. Legitimate regenerative medicine clinics in the U.S. practice these procedures under exacting laws and guidelines.

A legitimate stem cell clinic in the U.S. is properly licensed, FDA guidelines-compliant.

While regenerative medicine clinics take a holistic approach to healthcare -such as incorporating cornerstone health care departments like nutritional counseling and functional rehabilitation into their practice- they are commonly known as, simply, stem cell clinics. And just as with any medical practice, it is imperative that a stem cell clinic is properly licensed, FDA guidelines-compliant, and staffed with experienced physicians and other medical professionals.

With that in mind, NSI offers tips below to help you ensure you’re working with an FDA guidelines-compliant regenerative medicine facility.

What to Look for in a Stem Cell Medical Clinic

When searching for a qualified stem cell therapy center it’s important to remember that not all of them are created equal. Stem cells, when used properly, are your body’s most powerful means for healing that can repair everything from ligaments, tendons, and cartilage to organs including your liver, pancreas and lungs and even neurological tissue like your brain, nerves and spinal cord.

Unfortunately, the majority of so-called “regenerative medicine clinics” in the world aren’t trained in the latest, most technologically advanced procedures and will, therefore, provide poor results if any.

The good news is the National Stem Cell Institute (NSI) has established the most advanced stem cell and platelet rich plasma procedures on the planet which has drawn patients from all over the world as well as professional athletes and celebrities because they are recognized as the best in the world at stem cell therapy.


What makes NSI Stem Cell the top stem cell clinic in the world is demonstrated in 5 key areas:

1. Highly trained and experienced, board-certified doctors and team members who have performed stem cell procedures on thousands of patients with incredible results.

2. Cutting edge procedures utilizing all that regenerative medicine has to offer for many chronic degenerative conditions.

3. Leading scientific researchers who follow the advanced guidelines to maximize the healing potential of your stem cells and to maintain compliance and ethics

4. Use of only the most potent and viable resource of living, viable stem cells and harvested on the same day. No vial that you can purchase will contain living stem cells. If there is no harvest then there are no stem cells.

5. Post-operative guidance for supporting stem-cell growth including rehabilitation, diet and supplement protocols. NSI is a full-service healthcare center focused on patient outcomes. Stem cell therapy is only one tool used to help improve patients’ lives.
