What Ingredients Are Used In the Myers Cocktail IV Therapy?

Traditionally, the Myers cocktail is administered with a 1000mg bag of saline. However, other forms of administering the Myers cocktail can be through IM shot, or half size saline bags with 500mg. Here is what you will find in most Myers cocktails:



Vitamin C


At Drp IV, we also include Zinc and Glutathione in our variation of the Myers Cocktail ingredients.

Where does the name come from?

Dr John Myers coined the term Myers Cocktail in the 20th century when he began using a combination of nutrients in an IV to treat chronic conditions. May patients sought out this treatment for conditions such as asthma, migraines, inflammation, fatigue, fibromyalgia, and more. Today, just about any IV therapy establishment will carry a variation of the Myers cocktail. 

At Drp IV, we offer the Myers Plus drip, which is our spin on the classic Myers cocktail. Ours includes Zinc and Glutathione. We also offer double dosages of the feel good vitamins in our Mega Myers drip. Now you know, this treatment has been developing and working for years, only gaining in popularity.

What Do Myers Cocktail Ingredients Do?

The real reason the Myers Cocktail is in such high demand is the many amazing results that come from it. Let’s break down each of the Myers cocktail ingredients, one by one:

B12: Energy production, nerve health, red blood cell formation, DNA synthesis

B-Complex: Stress management, metabolism support, brain function, skin health

Vitamin C: Immune support, collagen production, antioxidant protection, wound healing

Magnesium: Muscle and nerve function, bone health, blood glucose control, heart rhythm regulation

Zinc: Immune system function, wound healing, skin health, DNA synthesis

Glutathione: Antioxidant defense, detoxification, immune system support, skin health


Did you see any benefits you could do with a little extra? The Myers cocktail is a powerful combination that is used for many ailments – more on that later.

Each of these ingredients is delivered through an IV so they go right to the bloodstream for maximum absorption. You may know individuals who take a handful of supplements everyday. Even then, oral supplements are not absorbed by the body anywhere near as efficiently as when they are administered through IV.

Because the Myers cocktail ingredients technically include saline, we’ll dive into some of the benefits that come from that boost of hydration as well. Here are just a few: 

Enhanced cognitive function

Improved physical performance

Healthy skin complexion

These are the benefits that come from being hydrated effectively. For your body to perform optimally, you need to have a base level of hydration. Many people are severely dehydrated or have a hard time staying hydrated. For those individuals, this drip will have an even greater impact.

At any point the Myers cocktail ingredients can give a huge wellness boost. Many people get this drip recreationally, or as part of their weekly routine. However, there are many conditions where this drip can make a major difference. Here are just a few instances where the Myers cocktail ingredients save the day: 

Cold: A viral infection causing a runny or stuffy nose, sneezing, and sore throat. The ingredients in the Myers Cocktail can give your body the extra immunity boost to cut your recovery time in half. 

Flu: A contagious respiratory illness with symptoms like fever, body aches, and fatigue. Each of these symptoms can be aided with extra hydration and support from the Myers cocktail ingredients.

Headache: A pain in the head or neck area, often due to tension, stress, or illness. Oftentimes when experiencing a headache, getting fluids throughout the body can be a game changer. Not only that, B vitamins have an important healing role in the body that can help with this condition.

Fatigue: Extreme tiredness or exhaustion often resulting from physical or mental exertion. This condition calls for a dose of B12, one of the key ingredients in the Myers cocktail.
