The Role of Magnesium in the Body and How You Can Get It Via IV Therapy

The body needs magnesium to support over 300 biochemical reactions. Not only does this mineral help to ensure that your nerves and muscles function adequately, but it supports your immune system, heart, and bones. Magnesium also assists with the production of protein and energy. Plus, it keeps blood glucose levels in check. Researchers also believe magnesium may help to prevent and manage diabetes, heart disease, and high blood pressure. You can get magnesium from your food but an additional way to ensure you get enough is through the Myer’s Cocktail, a well-known IV therapy solution. Lack of magnesium most likely occurs in older people, individuals with Type 2 diabetes, those with gastrointestinal disease, and those who abuse alcohol.

If you don’t consume or absorb enough magnesium, in the early stages you may experience, nausea, vomiting, fatigue, weakness, and loss of appetite. Moderate deficiency usually results in numbness, tingling, seizures, abnormal heart rhythms, personality changes, and muscle cramps. Severe deficiencies cause low blood calcium and low blood potassium. Let’s look at how the Myer’s Cocktail IV hydration treatment works.

The Myer’s Cocktail Explained

This cocktail was around for decades. It is made up of a sterile saline solution, vitamin B12, Vitamin C, and magnesium. If you choose to get your magnesium this way, you’ll also get increased hydration and the benefit of these additional vitamins. Vitamin C boosts immunity, improves the absorption of iron, and lowers risk factors for heart disease. Vitamin B12 regulates energy and mood and helps to support the health of the eyes, brain, blood, and bones.

While these vitamins are most often oral supplements, IV hydration therapy ensures they go straight into the bloodstream. Otherwise, they would have to go through the digestive system. Then the full dosage wouldn’t be absorbed. IV therapy is fast, efficient, and effective.
