Considering Injectable Vitamins? Here’s What You Should Know

For some people, ingesting vitamins to boost a healthy body is just an everyday maintenance. But, how do you know you’re absorbing the same amount of vitamins you’re paying for? It is difficult to analyze. When it comes down to measuring vitamins and minerals, there’s one thing that is constant: their interactions and absorption rate are really complicated to measure. Everything is dependent on the person’s health conditions, life stage, and other situational variables that play a role in trying to measure the rate of absorption in the body. This makes oral vitamin supplements a complete mystery, and injectable vitamins a great alternative!

When it comes to injectable vitamins, there’s far less guessing. The vitamins get absorbed directly into the bloodstream for a full boost! There are a lot of available injectable vitamins to choose from. Here we’ll touch on some of the most popular vitamins and the benefits they can offer.

Vitamin C Injections

Vitamin C is well known as a booster of many things, namely our immune system! Vitamin C is found in fruits and vegetables like oranges, lemons, and sweet peppers. You’ll also find that they are available in higher concentrations: vitamin pills and injectable vitamins.

Unfortunately, as mentioned before, vitamin C oral supplements have to go through an entire absorption process during digestion. This is where injections skip that step entirely and come into play as the quicker and more effective alternative. Your body will absorb the entirety of the vitamin C injection through the bloodstream as opposed to delivering a smaller dose through vitamin pills or Emergen-C.

For example, injections can deliver up to 25 grams of vitamin C in a dose. In order to come close to the equivalent of that, you would have to take about 5 vitamin pills to hit the same concentration.

With injections, you don’t have to remember to take the necessary pills every day to maintain a long-term health result. Injections are scheduled regularly and ensure consistency.

Vitamin C injections can help benefit:

  • Weight Loss. Vitamin C has the ability to help with weight loss when coupled with a moderate activity level.
  • Immune System. The most commonly known benefit is the help that vitamin C gives when it comes to fighting bacteria, diseases, and illnesses.
  • Energy.  Vitamin C helps the average person feel less fatigued and more energized.
  • Blood Pressure. Vitamin C helps flush the kidneys by lowering the amount of water and sodium in the body. When reducing the fluids in the body by natural excretion, it puts the arterial valve walls in a more relaxed state. This helps reduce the risk of high blood pressure and other heart conditions.
  • Inflammation. Vitamin C helps get rid of free radicals, which aids in the fight against inflammation.
  • Hair and Skin. Vitamin C helps skin and hair with increased collagen production and increased iron absorption.

B12 Injectable Vitamins

Vitamin B12 is one of the most popular vitamin injections to date. Vitamin B12 is used throughout the world to help people who are on certain medications, needing help with weight loss, or just looking for a boost in energy! Vitamin B12 is also used for people who have restrictive diets and don’t regularly consume animal by-products. B12 injectable vitamins are a great way to maintain optimal levels of B12 while still abiding by a specific diet regime.

Vitamin B12 injections have also been known to help with:

  • osteoporosis prevention
  • eye health / macular degeneration prevention
  • cardiovascular health
  • improved cognition
  • and a better mood.

It’s most commonly known to help regulate skin, hair, and nails. Imagine getting 10x the concentration of B12 with one injection!

Maybe you would prefer more than one kind of vitamin B injection. Some might consider a vitamin B complex injection. This could be used similarly to vitamin B12 to help boost the metabolism, burn fat, have healthy energy and immunity. These injections can be used regularly, even daily.

D3 Injectable Vitamins

There are two forms of vitamin D: vitamin D2 and vitamin D3. Vitamin D3 comes from a synthesis of sunlight through the skin. This can also be in a vitamin pill form or as an injectable vitamin.

Many people deal with vitamin D deficiencies. Sometimes the body requires more than what we synthesize throughout the day. Studies show that people who are of Western European descent are naturally deficient in vitamin D and commonly suffer from the symptoms of a vitamin D deficiency. Otherwise, vitamin D deficiencies have also been known to stem from malnutrition and issues with absorption in the intestines, or lack thereof.

Some of the benefits of vitamin D include:

  • Improving the immune system which helps to fight infections in the body
  • Helps to reduce the risk of high blood pressure.
  • Helps to reduce increased risk of obesity.
  • Helps patients who are in the pre-diabetes phase.
  • Helps the body absorb calcium to continue to develop strong bone density.
  • Helps to reduce the risk of certain diseases like cancer, heart disease, Parkinson’s Disease, Multiple Sclerosis, and helps protect against age-related macular degeneration.
  • Improves mood and cognitive function.
  • Helps to reduce risk of Influenza A.
  • Improves the symptoms of restless leg syndrome.
  • Decreases the risk of incontinence and pelvic floor disorder.
  • Helps in treatment of psoriasis and vitiligo patients

Vitamin D3 is one of the most important groups of micronutrients in the body, and it is one of our more popular injectable vitamins. It has the capability to turn our genes on or off because of its potency as a steroid hormone, similar to other steroid-like hormones such as cortisol and testosterone. This is what makes it a very important vitamin to replenish. In certain areas of the world, like the Mediterranean, where a lack of exposure to UVB ultraviolet-B rays or sources of foods that don’t help to replenish deficiencies is common, vitamin D3 injections can be extremely beneficial. If you’re dealing with hypertension and blood pressure issues, obesity, and/or chronic inflammation, talk to your doctor about vitamin D3 injections for treatment.

Glutathione Vitamins

This is an antioxidant that you don’t hear about as often. Glutathione, which is made up of essential amino acids, gives our body the capability to protect itself from certain parts of the aging process. It’s also referred to as the master antioxidant. It helps to increase body function, increase the health of your skin and boost your overall well-being. Why isn’t this right up there with vitamins C and D, right? Aging, that’s something everyone will experience.

Glutathione has also been known to decrease the chemicals that cause darkening of the skin like hyperpigmentation.

Glutathione can provide a wide array of benefits, including:

  • It improves Insulin sensitivity.
  • It can help you have healthier skin.
  • It helps to get rid of hyperpigmentation.
  • It lowers the risk of cancer and cancer progressing by reducing oxidative stress.
  • It helps your body break down fat.
  • It aids in your anti-aging efforts.
  • It improves the quality of your sleep.
  • It reduces inflammation.
  • It provides your body with higher levels of energy.
  • It reduces the symptoms of diseases like Parkinson’s and ulcerative colitis.

Injectable Vitamins Side Effects

With treatments like injectable vitamins, there is always a risk for side effects. Fortunately, many of these side effects are considered very low risk. First and foremost, it’s always important to talk to your doctor about any allergies you may have to certain ingredients, and if you’re taking medications that could negatively impact your IV treatment.

It’s extremely important to ensure your treatments are coming from qualified professionals who are trained to properly monitor your body throughout the process.

Some of the side effects that may occur could be:

Headaches: There’s a small percentage of a slight headache. Although the chances are extremely slim, the detoxifying of harmful toxins in the body does increase the chance. Nothing a light painkiller couldn’t remedy.

Skin reactions: Because the needle does pierce the skin, it’s only natural that your skin may react. It could develop a rash, seem more red, feel a little sore or look a little swollen. This, like with all needlework, is a very common issue if you have sensitive skin. This can also happen if the needle was inserted incorrectly.

Vein bruising or inflammation: Have you ever gotten bloodwork done and the nurse just couldn’t find your vein? You wake up the next day with a little bruising from the needle. Although very rare, this could be a side effect.

Skin infections: If the area wasn’t cleaned properly, inserting a needle makes you susceptible to infections at the injection spot.

Allergic reaction: If you have any allergies it’s important to discuss this with your doctor. If you are allergic to a specific ingredient in the IV, this could leave you susceptible to an allergic reaction. Depending on the severity of your allergy. This could also include any medications or supplements you may be taking that could interact with the injectable vitamins negatively.

If you’re prone to bad reactions based on previous treatments, consult with your doctor about it so your medical team can help monitor and prevent you from any future reactions.

Anxiety: Although injectable vitamins don’t cause anxiety by themselves, there is an anxiety many people have over the injection of the needle. Talk to the physician who will be administering your treatment and the ways to help you reduce your anxiety.

It’s important to note that these side effects are only low risk when the provider is fully qualified. This way fewer risks are likely to occur. However, on the contrary, more severe side effects are more common with relaxed protocols and unqualified physicians.

Receiving personalized injectable vitamins

Injectable vitamins leave little to wonder when it comes to the rate your body absorbs each vitamin and can ensure great results. Even though you may take vitamin pills or eat fruits, dairy, poultry, and/or meat, receiving the right amount of vitamins, your body needs can become hard to understand and measure. This is why it’s always best to check ourselves with the help of certified professionals.

Before and during treatment, you will have blood tests scheduled. These routine blood tests help your doctor monitor the necessary levels for your body and the dosage of the injectable vitamins needed. Your doctor will also be watching  your response to the treatment, as well as certain markers like a corrected bone profile to gauge the results of the treatment.

athlete ready to run after iv therapy hydration

Why Athletes Are More Frequently Choosing IV Therapy

There are multiple reasons why athletes are more frequently choosing IV therapy during training and after competitions, including but certainly not limited to:

Maintaining proper hydration during physical activity

IV hydration therapy provides the quick and effective delivery of hydrating fluids to the bloodstream. This method of hydration allows the fluids to bypass the digestive system, so there’s less time spent between intake and results. In a situation where the body is pushed to the limit, such as athletic competition or training, this level of expediency is critical to keeping the body healthy. IV hydration therapy also allows for direct absorption of key nutrients contained within the IV solution or “cocktail”. These cocktails often include elements such as electrolytes, antioxidants, or amino acids. For this reason, both amateur and professional athletes are more frequently choosing IV therapy to rehydrate while also receiving vitamins and minerals tailored to their needs.

Relieving or eliminating joint or muscle pain

There’s a lot that goes into building an athletic and fit body, inside and out. Athletes put their bodies through tremendous physical stress, which will inevitably lead to muscle cramps, joint aches, and even chronic or recurring injuries. IV therapy delivers quick and immediate relief of these effects through direct administration of anti-inflammatory drugs and other types of pain medication.

Athletes may also use IV fluids to reduce the chance of future joint pain and muscle cramps by direct fluid replacement through intravenous injection. While it’s not the sole cause or factor in creating these issues, dehydration and loss of fluid and salt in the body can lead to muscle and joint pains. Proper hydration helps lubricate the joints and muscles to prevent friction that can lead to acute and short-term injury.

Facilitating and expediting recovery from different types of injury

This is of course a big reason why athletes are more frequently choosing IV therapy. IV delivery of medications can offer quicker relief for symptoms of injuries and chronic conditions. Many athletes opt for IV therapy for immediate delivery of glutathione, vitamin C, and other antioxidants thought to promote wound healing and reduce oxidative stress that leads to pain after your exercise. The reality of an athlete’s life is that time is always of the essence, and the need for expedient recovery is always a factor in healing. IV therapy can help speed up the recovery process in a safe and effective way.

It’s important to address the origins of pain rather than mask them with simple symptom relief. Talk to your doctor about coming up with a care plan to address the immediate and long-term physical effects of your condition. These types of therapies provide short-term relief, but they’re not meant to be a substitute for long-term treatment. If you’re going to explore regular hydration therapy, come up with a schedule that adequately addresses your fitness and performance cycle as well as other factors, like age and other associated health issues.

When should athletes receive IV therapy?

The short answer is: “before and after.“ 

The more detailed explanation is that the intervals and time at which athletes should receive IV therapy depends on what you’re getting the therapy for. Many athletes opt forpre-hydration therapy before training or engaging in competitive play. Others may choose IV therapy to replenish fluids that they’ve lost from working out. And yet another group might opt for this therapy to alleviate acute aches and pains. The real schedule of your prospective therapy depends on your individual care needs, workout regimen, and more.

Although there are no high-level research studies exploring efficacy, research suggests that “the use of IV fluid may be beneficial for a subset of fluid-sensitive athletes; this should be reserved for high-level athletes with strong histories of symptoms in well-monitored settings.” IV administration of fluids for hydration is quicker than oral consumption of water and other fluids to provide benefits.

What athletes should look for in an IV therapy provider

If you are an athlete and are considering hydration therapy, it’s important to get help from a trusted, reputable and respected provider. To effectively address your specific concerns, it’s important that you partner with an IV therapy provider who is trained in the alleviation of sports-related injuries and can safely administer the care and symptom relief you need without exposing you to any long-term damage.

It’s also important to figure out whether or not they offer the type of service you’re looking for. Make sure to ask questions, do your research and connect with your prospective facility before committing to a treatment schedule. Find out about their level of experience and any relevant accreditations they may have. There are generally no serious side effects of IV hydration therapy, other than potential redness and irritation at the injection, lightheadedness, and nausea. This is still a complex medical procedure that requires a trained professional’s expertise.

What Can You Expect From Your First NAD Therapy Session?

Nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD) IV therapy is a trusted and established intervention to help boost energy and treat conditions like chronic fatigue syndrome, exhaustion, and even acute temporary energy-depletion scenarios, like jet lag. As with any clinical treatment, it’s perfectly natural to have questions about getting started, and whether or not it’s safe for you to proceed. NAD is a natural coenzyme found in Vitamin B3. It can help to quickly activate carbs, fats, and your body’s other natural fuels to create energy and make you feel vital and refreshed. The process of NAD IV therapy is fairly simple and straightforward. We’re here to answer any questions you have and provide a detailed account of what you can expect from your first NAD therapy session.

What Is NAD?

NAD is a naturally occurring coenzyme that is found in all living organisms that performs two important functions:

  1. turning nutrients into energy to regulate metabolism, and
  2. assisting designated proteins in the regulation of certain cellular functions.

It also helps to control calcium levels, regulate gene expression and serves as a powerful antioxidant. NAD therapy helps the body to feel more rejuvenated and energized to combat symptoms of fatigue-related diseases as well as specific events that render the body tired. NAD therapy consists of a series of injections that begin after you’ve consulted with an experienced and qualified practitioner who can do it right.

How do I know if I really need NAD IV therapy?

Your medical provider may recommend NAD therapy if you’re struggling with persistent tiredness, chronic fatigue syndrome, or exhaustion. Begin by making an appointment with your physician to get their insight on the viability of NAD therapy, and whether or not it may be right for you. NAD therapy is also a viable option for older people as their bodies age and creates less NAD than they used to, inhibiting the ability to repair and heal itself. Make sure to tell them exactly how you’ve been feeling and write down any questions you may have about the process, including its efficacy and risks.

Remember that there’s nothing wrong with asking them to repeat themselves if there’s something you don’t understand. You can, and should, also consult a qualified practitioner for a detailed consultation. Any new medical intervention needs detailed investigation and research, whether it’s elective or necessary. The more you know about the process, the more empowered you will be to make informed decisions.

When should I have a NAD therapy session?

NAD IV therapy is a prime option for the management of a wide variety of conditions, including but not limited to:

  • Substance Use Disorder
  • Depression
  • Low or Depleted Energy
  • Brain Fog
  • Muscular Issues
  • Fatigue and Tiredness

In patients who are aging, NAD IV therapy can slow or delay the process of aging, improve cognitive ability and mental clarity, reduce the look of fine lines and wrinkles in the face, aid or restore muscle function and mobility, and offer many more physical and cognitive health benefits.

What to know about your NAD therapy session

When it’s finally time to have a NAD therapy session, there are some things you should know about duration, after-effects, and what to do before, during, and after each session:

How long are NAD therapy sessions?

NAD therapy sessions occur over the course of two sessions over two days. Sessions are generally eight to ten hours long, during which NAD is injected into the bloodstream. You’ll go into your practitioner’s office and a qualified staff member will prepare the IV equipment and sterilize the surroundings so you feel comfortable, relaxed, and safe. Once your practitioner prepares your treatment, sit back, relax and enjoy! Remember to tell the staff at your facility if you start to experience changes in the way you feel that you don’t expect. Make sure to use the bathroom prior, if possible, so you don’t have to interrupt your session.

Make sure you eat something before your visit so you’re not hungry. It may be a good idea to pack some snacks and drinks in case you get hungry or thirsty during the duration of your session. Make sure you wear comfortable or loose-fitting clothing as you will have to sit in the same spot for a long period of time while you get your treatment. Try to relax as much as possible during your session and let the treatment do its work.

What do I do during my NAD therapy session?

The short answer is, “whatever you’d like”. Perhaps a more appropriate answer would be to say that you can do multiple things during your therapy, like read a book, browse the internet, get some work done or catch up with friends or families over text. You can also catch up on your favorite TV shows, listen to music or just relax and enjoy the time you have to yourself. While the exact length of NAD therapy sessions will vary according to each person’s needs, you can expect to be there for between eight to ten hours. It’s best to have something to fill the time during therapy.

The good news is that IVMeNow can come right to you for your NAD therapy session. You can receive your treatment in the comfort of your home as you endeavor to overcome fatigue, energy depletion, and age-related health issues. 

Can I resume my normal activities right after NAD therapy?

Generally speaking, you should experience little to no negative side effects from your NAD therapy session, with the exception of possible irritation near the injection site. This means that you can resume your routine immediately after receiving your treatment. If you’re experiencing any odd or unexpected side effects, tell your practitioner immediately so they can assess the situation and advise you accordingly on how to proceed. Usually, however, you can maintain normal everyday social activity after you receive your treatment.

How will I feel after my first NAD therapy session?

While each person’s NAD therapy will be different depending on age, pre-existing conditions, and other factors, patients commonly report a variety of positive effects after their NAD therapy session. These include mental clarity, an increase in physical energy, and increased mobility. These positive effects generally last from around five to 14 days depending on your health issues, your level of treatment, therapy goals, and many other factors.

Before getting NAD IV therapy

Like any other medical procedure, you will need to understand how NAD IV therapy may pose risks to your overall physical health and longevity. Before your first treatment, you should undergo a full physical examination and consultation with your doctor. Once it is decided that you’re a candidate for NAD IV therapy, your doctor or practitioner will assess your health goals and needs, and create a customized plan that best suits your objectives and long-term health issues.

Multiple studies point to thesafety and efficacy in NAD IV therapy in isolating NAD molecules and leveraging them to boost energy, but it is important that you get treatment from a trusted and reputable provider.

IVMeNow will give you the best NAD therapy session

No matter what your reason for pursuing NAD IV therapy may be, you need and deserve care and treatment from an experienced and qualified professional. IVMeNow has been helping patients explore the viability of IV NAD therapy for years in South Florida, and we’re ready to do the same for you. We are committed to helping make IV NAD therapy more affordable and accessible to give you the boost of vitality you need to improve your health and quality of life.

5 Reasons You Might Need IV Hydration Therapy

There are multiple reasons why you may need IV hydration therapy. While it may seem like a comparatively extreme or invasive means of staying hydrated, IV hydration allows you to maximize your hydration in a way that traditional interventions, such as drinking water, do not. IV hydration is a safe, common, and minimally invasive means of making sure your body has all of the hydration elements it needs to counteract dehydration brought on by chronic and acute conditions. Some of the symptoms most commonly linked to dehydration include, but are not limited to:

  • Fever and flu
  • Diarrhea and intestinal distress
  • Overexertion
  • Infrequent urination
  • Dark-colored urine
  • Excessive sweating
  • Intense thirst
  • Dizziness
  • Disorientation
  • and more

If you notice these symptoms persist, talk to your doctor to start getting IV hydration. This will require more than just drinking water or Gatorade. It will more than likely require a comprehensive cocktail of hydration vitamins and minerals to reverse the course of the symptoms.

In addition to the more urgent need for IV hydration, many quality-of-life issues can warrant this therapy to help people looking and feeling their best. Some of the main reasons you might need IV hydration treatment include:

1. Emergency hydration or medical concern

Let’s start with the basics, IV hydration is commonly used in emergency medical situations when you need an immediate infusion of vitamins and minerals. As scary as it is to admit, there may be times in our lives when we will be unable to respond to doctors’ or EMTs’ inquiries or be awake to take oral medication or drink water. In these emergency medical situations, you may not only need a quick infusion of medications but also fluids to make sure you don’t succumb to dehydration. Some of these specific examples include heart attack or stroke, acute trauma, excessive bleeding or loss of fluids, drug overdose, alcohol poisoning anaphylaxis, or a severe allergic reaction.

Your body depends on a steady and consistent flow of hydration to deal with function during these extremely high-pressure situations and everyday life. Adequate hydration helps you regulate your body temperature, it lubricates your joints and muscles, protects you against infections, delivers nutrients to cells, and keeps organs functioning properly. It also helps to improve the quality of your sleep, enhance your cognition, and elevate your mood.

There will be times when you’re dehydrated and the only way to regulate your hydration levels is through IV. As a general rule in everyday life, it’s recommended that you drink eight eight-ounce glasses of water per day and eat plenty of fruits and veggies to maintain proper hydration levels. When you find yourself struggling with a condition that causes dehydration, IV therapy may be the right way to go.

2. Malnutrition…Even if you don’t realize it

In some instances, we may be dehydrated and not realize until it’s too late and something urgent happens. We may be going about our day and start to feel faint. We may be lacking essential vitamins and minerals that aid in hydration without knowing it. In these cases, it’s imperative that you immediately replace the fluids in your body to continue proper organ function and restore your body to proper health. Even though you think you may be eating or drinking enough, your body may be missing certain fundamental vitamins and minerals that are needed to survive.

3. You overdid it during exercise

There’s a difference between being a little overheated after an intense workout and suffering from more serious dehydration. There’s a reason why we’re told to consistently drink water and take breaks between reps. Exercising elevates both heart rate and body temperature at intense levels, so it’s important to continue to circulate fluid throughout your body to regulate your temperature. Intense and prolonged exercise without stopping to drink water can lead to dehydration sooner than you think. While you may not feel like you’re dehydrated, it can creep up on you at any moment, leading to possible collapse or unconsciousness.

You can often prevent fitness-related dehydration by drinking enough water and monitoring the color of your urine for darkening or discoloration. There may be other times when IV hydration therapy is a viable option to help you quickly replace the fluids in your body. If you know you’re going to be doing a particularly hard workout one day during the week, consider scheduling an IV hydration appointment for IV hydration the same day. It’s also worth noting that the South Florida weather can routinely lead to overheating and dehydration. So be careful when you exercise outside!

There are specific hydration cocktails for athletes that offer sterile saline fluids, as well as those that restore your electrolytes. When you’re living in South Florida, IV hydration therapy can be a perfect solution to leave you rested, cooled, and refreshed no matter what your activity level may be. You don’t have to be a super athlete to reap the refreshing and rejuvenating benefits of hydration therapy.

4. Hydration to remedy a hangover

It’s understandable! After all, we live in South Florida, where there is a lot to do at night. Of course, one of the first things people do the morning after a fun night out is to start chugging their water or Gatorade. Waking up with a massive headache is something we all dread. Our customers will sometimes receive IV hydration therapy before or after they go out drinking so they can mitigate their hangover symptoms.

Our IV hydration therapy administers fluids, vitamins, and minerals directly into your bloodstream to bypass the absorption and get you feeling back to normal more quickly. We offer B-Complex vitamin therapy, Vitamin C therapy, and general hydration therapy to our customers so they can enjoy all that South Florida has to offer, without worrying about the consequences that come with hangovers!

5. You just need a “boost” of energy

Feeling tired, run-down, or fatigued from everyday life? Does your career or lifestyle leave you feeling depleted at the end of the week? While it’s recommended that we all take proper care of ourselves (diet, exercise, mental health, etc.), the reality for many is that we often neglect ourselves as we move through our daily lives. IV hydration helps us reclaim our health and ensure that our fluids are properly balanced so we can look and feel our best.

Many people also have special diets, whether permanent or temporary, that may leave us deprived of essential vitamins and minerals. IV hydration therapy can replace the vitamins that we lose when abstaining from consuming certain foods or beverages, like fruits or veggies.

Risks and side effects of IV hydration therapy 

We understand that you may have questions about the side effects of hydration therapy, and we can assure you that it’s a safe and minimally invasive intervention. Some of the common mild side effects that people may experience include dizziness, lightheadedness, and pain or irritation at the injection site. Risks of IV hydration therapy may be compounded or magnified in older adults. It’s important to speak with your doctor about the benefits versus the risks of this therapy before making your decision.

8 Important Health Benefits of the Myers Cocktail

The Myers Cocktail is an intravenous (IV) combination or “cocktail” of vitamins and nutrients developed by Dr. John Myers to mitigate severe symptoms of many medical ailments, including but not limited to asthma and other respiratory issues, fibromyalgia, and nerve disease, chronic fatigue syndrome, and migraines. The cocktail works by delivering key vitamins and minerals in a way that oral consumption can’t match. IV vitamin C has been found to reach blood concentrations of amounts more than 50 times greater than oral methods of delivery. The Myers cocktail is a trusted and commonly used IV treatment with minimal side effects that can be administered either in your care provider’s office or via a specialized home care service. For that reason, there are several health benefits of the Myers cocktail that make it a popular choice.

IVMeNow offers convenient, professional, and trusted delivery of the Myers cocktail to eligible patients so they don’t have to leave their homes or be inconvenienced, especially when they’re feeling the effects of certain conditions for which the Myers cocktail may be necessary. The reality is that many of the disease states for which patients take the Myers cocktail can inhibit their mobility and make it difficult for them to leave their homes. IV Me Now takes care of this by bringing the treatment to you or your loved one.

What’s in the Myers Cocktail?

The Myers cocktail contains a combination of vitamins and minerals:

  • Magnesium Chloride – Magnesium chloride helps prevent inflammation, which can cause pain, and is also helpful in strengthening your immune system. This compound has also been found to be remarkably effective in the treatment of asthma, migraines, and high blood pressure.
  • Calcium Gluconate – Calcium Gluconate assists in the elevation of blood calcium, which is an essential element in developing strong and healthy bones.
  • Vitamin B Complex – The eight B vitamins in B complex are important for developing healthy hair and skin, preventing memory loss, and managing stress.
  • Vitamin C – Vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant that can strengthen your immune system. Studies indicate thatincreasing your vitamin C intake can increase your blood antioxidant levels by up to 30 percent.

What Are the Principle Health Benefits of the Myers Cocktail?

You will find that there are a variety of health benefits of the Myers cocktail, some of the specifics of which include:

Strengthened Immune System to Combat Common Cold and Flu Viruses

The concentration of Vitamin C contained in the intravenous Myers cocktail considerably strengthens immune system strength, so you’re better able to avoid seasonal cold and flu and effectively fight symptoms when it does occur.

Improved Nerve function for Better Fibromyalgia Management

The Myers Cocktail also contains ample Vitamin B12, which is crucial in promoting nerve health and function. Low vitamin B levels are routinely linked to nerve damage that could cause fibromyalgia, a disease that impacts the capacity of nerves to “communicate” with muscles. The high levels of Vitamin B12 in the Myers cocktail can help increase nerve function and viability, potentially mitigating the effects of fibromyalgia.

Better Memory Function and Cognition

Low levels of Vitamin B12 and Vitamin C have linked with a decline in memory and recall that many of us take for granted. The brain quickly loses neurons during the aging process, which can lead to subsequent memory loss. High concentrations of Vitamins B12 and Vitamin C can delay or stall the loss of these memory-storing neurons to help improve memory and increase cognitive longevity during the inevitability of the aging process.

Promotion of Better Bone Health

The calcium gluconate in the Myers cocktail can significantly increase blood calcium and subsequently treat associated diseases and conditions caused by calcium deficiencies. Calcium is critically important to the strengthening of teeth and bones (we’ve all seen the milk ads, right?). It plays a key role in nerve health, as well as the stability of cellular, muscular and osteopathic function. Low blood calcium levels force the body to take it from the bones, which can significantly weaken them. Adequate calcium levels in the blood facilitate proper bone health and other health benefits.

Increased Energy Levels

B-complex vitamins play an essential role in your body’s energy production. Vitamin B12, specifically, possesses compounds that can boost energy and make you feel more alert and ready to take on the day.

Prevention of Headaches and Migraines

There is ample data to indicate that migraine sufferers are more prone to magnesium deficiency than the rest of the population. There is also a growing body of research evidence indicating that magnesium can help prevent the onset and severity of headache symptoms. The Myers cocktail’s high levels of magnesium chloride help you combat these often debilitating migraine episodes as they occur.

Facilitation of Better Circulatory System Functions and Blood Health

Your blood depends on high levels of iron and a high volume of red cells. Vitamin B12 is instrumental in the production of these cells and can help promote better long-term blood health. At the same time, Vitamin C helps these cells to take in iron to combat the onset and proliferation of bad cholesterol as you age. Low Vitamin C levels can contribute to substandard absorption of iron, which can, and often does, result in anemia.

Improved Mood and Vitality

Vitamin B-12 is a high producer of Serotonin, which is the neurotransmitter in the brain that’s directly responsible for the regulation of mood on a neurobiological level. When we consider the high levels B-12 found in the Myers Cocktail, it’s easy to connect the dots between higher levels of serotonin, improved mood, and heightened protection from conditions like depression, anxiety, and other mood disorders.

There are multiple health benefits of the Myers Cocktail, but you have to be sure that you’re receiving your treatment from a quality and reputable provider.

What to Look for In Myers Cocktail Treatment

Before receiving a Myers Cocktail, it’s highly recommended that you receive a full medical examination to determine the scope of your health issues and whether or not this treatment is warranted. Your doctor will work with you to guide you in your decision-making and help you come to an informed conclusion. Once it is determined that you’re a prime candidate for the Myers Cocktail, you can start planning your treatment.

The Myers Cocktail may be a prime option for patients who are experiencing fatigue, joint tenderness, muscle aches flare-ups for Fibromyalgia, and a host of other chronic and acute conditions. It’s especially ideal for patients who are having a hard time ingesting food, and can’t fully absorb the vitamins, minerals, and nutrients by eating food or taking different kinds of supplements.

What Are the Side Effects of the Myers Cocktail?

When receiving any IV fluids, it’s perfectly natural to be worried about the side effects or potential long-term health risks. The good news is that generally speaking, there are little to no severe negative short or long-term side effects of the Myers Cocktail. Patients may experience redness or irritation at the injection site and quick rushes of heat due to the high concentrations of magnesium circulating through their bloodstream.

It’s also possible, though not incredibly common, for the patients to experience lightheadedness because magnesium has been known to lower blood pressure. If this happens too quickly, patients may feel slightly faint or lightheaded. Make sure to tell your doctor or practitioner if you feel any odd or unexpected side effects so they can intervene, assess your health and stop treatment while they see what is going on.

How Long Is the Myers Cocktail Treatment?

Your Myers Cocktail treatment will generally last between 30 and 60 minutes, depending on factors like your age, pre-existing health and mobility issues, and others. Many begin their Myers Cocktail routine with eight weekly treatments followed by regular monthly infusions, depending upon progress with the management of your condition and how you continue to feel after you’ve been getting them for a prolonged period of time.
