How can Myer’s Cocktail Help Manage Irritable Bowel Disease?

Woman Suffering from a Stomach Pain from irritable bowel syndrome - IBS.

The digestive system is responsible for extracting energy and nutrients from what we eat, so having a disease that affects the digestive system can drastically affect the body. Irritable Bowel Disease is the name for several conditions affecting the digestive system. Many of these conditions have similar symptoms, but some can be quite debilitating. 

While there are numerous treatments for the different forms of irritable bowel disease, Myer’s Cocktail is an IV treatment that contains a range of specific minerals and nutrients that may help support immune health, improve digestive health, and, more importantly, aid in treating irritable bowel disease. 

Nutrients Found in Myer’s Cocktail and the Potential Benefits for IBD Patients 

IV therapy has several benefits, and a specialized formula like Myer’s Cocktail can help improve how your body deals with irritable bowel disease. Here we will discuss some of the cocktail’s ingredients and how they may benefit those with IBD.

Vitamin C 

Vitamin C is one of the critical components of the cocktail that may play a key role in helping treat IBD. One of the main symptoms of IBD is inflammation in the digestive tract, caused by bacteria, viruses, or free-floating atoms known as free radicals. Free radicals are responsible for most of the inflammation felt throughout the body, besides those related to immune response.

Vitamin C helps with this problem by acting as an antioxidant. Antioxidants help eradicate free radicals and promote overall health and wellness; vitamin C helps boost the immune system and our overall health. These processes can help the body fight off bacteria and viruses that may contribute to IBD or may actively be causing symptoms.

Much like how vitamin C helps to boost the immune system and fight free radicals, glutathione does something similar in that it is a potent antioxidant, meaning that it also helps to get rid of free radicals. However, glutathione does much more than that.

Glutathione is responsible for assisting with many different bodily processes. Its primary duty is to prevent cell damage by promoting healthy cell growth, destroying free radicals, and helping improve overall cellular performance by detoxing the body’s cells of foreign or natural substances such as heavy metals, peroxides, and other harmful or poisonous substances. This process helps the body flush out these toxic substances.

Another reason glutathione may be effective in helping treat people with irritable bowel disease is because it lowers inflammation throughout the body.1 Regardless of the particular cause of the inflammation, it is best to have as little of it as possible throughout the body, as chronic inflammation can impact both your health and the development of IBD symptoms.

Research on Myer’s Cocktail 

Up to this point, there have been only a few studies on whether or not the components in a Myer’s cocktail can help IBD. Though more research is still necessary, we know that vitamin C and Glutathione help reduce inflammation, which is the cause behind many of the symptoms of IBD.

Current glutathione and vitamin C data suggest that both help regulate the immune response. Supplementation prompts the body away from “overreacting” and producing a larger-than-normal inflammatory reaction, which then irritates the digestive tract, the bowel, and the gut, leading to most of the other symptoms of IBD. By reducing the inflammatory response, symptoms may become milder and easier to manage alongside traditional medication options.

Treating IBD with a Myer’s Cocktail

However, a Myer’s Cocktail is not a standalone treatment for IBD, nor should it be used without consulting a doctor about your condition. IBD involves many conditions, including Crohn’s disease and Colitis, and treatments vary depending on the specific condition.

Speak with your doctor if you experience IBD symptoms to obtain a diagnosis and start a treatment regimen that may include IV therapy with Myer’s Cocktail, combined with traditional therapies to manage episodes and individual symptoms.


Irritable Bowel Disease can decrease your quality of life or enjoy the foods you once liked. Depending on the cause behind IBD, the symptoms can be severe enough to interrupt day-to-day life and make it hard to work, go to school, or be with family.

The ingredients in Myer’s Cocktail may help manage the symptoms of IBD. The main components of the cocktail help regulate the immune response and reduce the inflammatory response, the primary culprit behind IBD symptoms. Using Myer’s Cocktail alongside a doctor-recommended treatment plan could make it easier to manage IBD and have fewer episodes with less severe symptoms.

Myer’s Cocktail treatment for IBD still needs more research to determine the full potential and range of benefits. As always, speaking with your doctor about your condition and any concerns they may have before beginning new treatment programs is best.
