Myers cocktail is a nutritional cocktail that is made of vitamin B, vitamin C, magnesium and calcium. The cocktail is normally administered intravenously to treat a range of illnesses and disorders. The cocktail contains vitamins that are necessary for boosting the body’s immunity. This therapy can be given to patients who have a deficiency of the above nutrients and are unable to obtain them orally. One of the major benefits of the therapy is treating chronic fatigue. The magnesium in the cocktail promotes muscle and blood vessel relaxation and also reduces muscle spasm. Vitamin B on the other hand is very helpful in the formation of new cells. This means, that if one has an illness, the intake of vitamin B will help in the formation of new healthy cells which is helpful in eliminating a disease. In this way, this therapy is similar to platelet rich plasma.
