Why is the Myers Cocktail So Great?

For an Added Boost… Glutathione!
Known as the “Mother of All Antioxidants,” Glutathione is one of the most essential antioxidants in our body. It is made naturally by the liver and is also found in meats, fruits, and vegetables. Low glutathione levels may be caused by advancing age, stress, environmental toxins, and poor nutrition.
Glutathione is known to improve metabolism, encourage detoxification, assist with tissue building, and strengthen our immune system. This antioxidant also rejuvenates your skin cells to slow the aging process. Oral supplements and food sources of glutathione are broken down in the body before they can be properly absorbed by our gut, so the ideal way to absorb it is by IV infusion.
The antioxidants found in glutathione are particularly great for the following:
- Anti-aging properties
- Brightens skin by reducing melanin production
- Detox from free radicals
- Promotes energy
- Improves immune function
- Reduces inflammation
- Helps fight and prevent disease
If you are acutely ill, it is best to first see your primary care physician or seek urgent care. Some people may not be candidates so it is important to discuss your health history with your provider prior to receiving treatment. If you are pregnant, nursing, have cancer or an autoimmune disorder, check with your managing healthcare provider to see if the Myers Cocktail is safe for you.
If you are generally feeling physically sub-par, or have known chronic conditions that can be aided by the Myers Cocktail, this simple and minimally invasive treatment can have you feeling better after your first infusion!
