Can Myer’s Cocktail Help Treat Insomnia And Anxiety?

Myer’s Cocktail is a complementary therapy for insomnia and anxiety, which are often the result of stress and nutrient deficiencies. While the exact cause of these conditions is not fully understood, magnesium and B vitamin deficiencies may affect their development and severity. Today, we look at how the ingredients in Myer’s Cocktail can help improve symptoms of insomnia and anxiety.

The role of nutritional deficiencies in insomnia and anxiety

Magnesium is a mineral that has a calming effect on the brain. A magnesium deficiency can leave individuals feeling fatigued, panicked, and stressed.

Magnesium deficiency can have a snowball effect and can make you more susceptible to high anxiety and stress levels. Elevated stress levels can increase magnesium loss through urination, and alcohol and caffeine compound this effect. The more magnesium you lose, the more stress and anxiety you may feel.

A deficiency in vitamin B6 (pyridoxine) typically manifests itself in confusion, disturbed sleep, emotional disturbances, and irritability, among other adverse effects. Furthermore, vitamin B6 is essential for the synthesis of dopamine and tryptophan.

Tryptophan is an essential amino acid that regulates sleep and mood. Not getting enough vitamin B6 from your diet can disturb your body’s metabolism of tryptophan, limiting the amount of serotonin in your body and potentially causing sleep disturbances and insomnia.

Because vitamin B12 is responsible for manufacturing dopamine, melatonin, and serotonin, vitamin B12 deficiency may affect your motivation and feelings of enjoyment, sleep regulation, and mood.

What is the Myer’s Cocktail?

The Myer’s Cocktail is an IV infusion that contains a combination of nutrients with potential benefits for anxiety and insomnia. Magnesium supports healthy nerve and muscle function and helps promote relaxation and reduce anxiety. Vitamins B6 and B12 are essential for producing neurotransmitters, such as serotonin and dopamine, positively affecting sleep and mood regulation.

The Myer’s Cocktail IV treatment consists of the following ingredients:

  • Antioxidants
  • B-complex vitamins
  • Electrolytes
  • IV fluids

Since Myer’s Cocktail is an intravenous delivery, it goes directly into your bloodstream and begins to take effect immediately. You can also absorb larger doses of these supplements through IV treatment instead of oral supplements.

Oral magnesium and vitamin B supplements require digestion before they take effect, and digestion can take hours. Further, some components of oral supplements are typically lost during the digestive process.

Research on Myer’s Cocktail for insomnia and anxiety

While there is limited research on using Myer’s Cocktail specifically for insomnia and anxiety, magnesium and B vitamin supplementation may help reduce symptoms and improve sleep quality in individuals with these conditions.

In one study on older people with insomnia, taking 500 milligrams (mg) of magnesium daily for eight weeks improved both subjective measures of insomnia (such as early morning awakening, ISI score, sleep efficiency, sleep onset latency, and sleep time) and objective measures of insomnia (such as concentration of melatonin, serum cortisol, and serum renin).1

A systematic review of several studies found magnesium supplementation can be beneficial in reducing mild anxiety and premenstrual symptoms.

In a study of 478 young adults, vitamin B6 supplementation reduced self-reported anxiety and depression, and vitamin B12 supplementation caused changes in stress.

Myer’s Cocktail IV treatments are a form of complementary medicine, which refers to treatments performed alongside conventional medicine, such as medications and surgery. Complementary medicines and therapy can provide benefits such as relieving anxiety and stress, improving mood, increasing relaxation, and encouraging well-being, pleasure, positivity, and inner peace.

Who should consider Myer’s Cocktail therapy?

You should consider Myer’s Cocktail therapy if you have insomnia or anxiety and also have or may have nutrient deficiencies or absorption problems. Myer’s Cocktail therapy is also a good idea if you are interested in complementary therapies to support conventional treatments.

How can you get a Myer’s Cocktail infusion?

A Myer’s Cocktail infusion treatment typically takes less than an hour to complete, making it easy to fit into even the busiest routine. You can have Myer’s Cocktail IV therapy at an IV clinic or at home with a licensed professional.

For an in-home appointment, you can schedule an appointment online, and a medical professional will arrive at your home to administer the treatment. This convenient approach means you can rest assured that the treatment is being administered correctly, and you will have someone with you to address any concerns you have or discomfort you may feel during the infusion.

Getting a Myer’s Cocktail at home gives you increased privacy and comfort and saves you time because you do not need to wait for treatment at a doctor’s office or hospital.

You can also save money on transportation because you do not need to commute anywhere. If you have social anxiety, it may not interfere as much with your treatment if you are receiving treatment at home.

Last Words

Myer’s Cocktail is an intravenous therapy that can be used alongside conventional treatments to treat symptoms of insomnia and anxiety. The Myer’s Cocktail comprises antioxidants, B complex vitamins, electrolytes, IV fluids, magnesium, vitamin B12, and vitamin C. Because it is delivered intravenously, it takes effect immediately. Oral supplements must go through your digestive system first, and it can take hours to start having an impact.

Your body can absorb higher doses of supplements intravenously than it can orally, making intravenous supplementation more efficient than oral supplementation, and it is favorable if you have a severe nutrient deficiency or problems with nutrient absorption.

You can get a Myer’s Cocktail IV treatment without a prescription, but it is vital that you only participate in IV therapy under medical supervision. Talk to your doctor if you are interested in using Myer’s Cocktail IV therapy in addition to conventional medicine, and they will be able to give you more information about it and determine if treatment is right for you.
