5 Incredible Myers’ Cocktail Benefits
September 16, 2023
There’s certainly a lot of positive buzz in the world of IV hydration therapy. If your chosen medspa offers recreational IV treatments as a service, it’s likely that you’ve noticed plenty of different IV options with various benefits. So what is a Myers’ cocktail?
Who Was John Myer?
John Myer, MD practiced medicine in Boston, Massachusetts before his passing in 1984. He was ahead of his time, trailblazing the way for future generations to use IV infusions for nutritional purposes. The “Myer’s cocktail” he pioneered (and variations on it) remains one of the most popular IV cocktail options available to this day.
What is a Myers’ Cocktail?
This intravenous cocktail recipe is a popular way to quickly administer key vitamins and minerals. A traditional Myers’ cocktail may include vitamin C, various B vitamins, magnesium, zinc, and a saline solution. That said, many modern iterations of this recipe alter the formula in different ways to accentuate different benefits.

“Banana Bag” vs Myers’ IV Cocktail
We’ve been discussing what is probably the most famous IV therapy cocktail. But there’s another buzzword getting a lot of hype in this industry: banana bag IVs. Frequently marketed as a speedy hangover cure, these IVs are all the rage after big nights out. So what’s the difference between these two concoctions…? NOTHING.
That’s right! John Myer’s original IV is actually the same basic thing as a banana bag. The “banana branding” here refers to the yellow hue of the fluid inside these IV bags, but a banana bag offers basically the same jam-packed recipe of essential vitamins and nutrients.
