Do you manage to eat healthy on a daily basis? 

Two ounces of vegetables and two pieces of fruit? Those who can say a resounding yes to this, are unfortunately among the exception. But even if you can, the question is whether you are getting enough vitamins.

Due to the method of cultivation and as a result of genetic modifications, today's fruits and vegetables contain far fewer vitamins, minerals, amino acids and antioxidants than they used to. The result: a deficiency and a negative effect on your health and resistance. 

Time to give yourself a boost with an (extended) Myers Cocktail infusion. You can do this at the Better Clinic.

What is a Myers Cocktail or Intravenous Vitamin Therapy?

In the 1960s, Dr. John Myers, an internist at Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore, first combined a number of vitamins and minerals into a "cocktail."

Intravenous vitamin therapy is the intravenous administration (directly into the bloodstream through a thin IV needle) of vitamins, minerals, amino acids and antioxidants to the patient.

The purpose of this treatment is to deliver these substances in a high concentration to the body's cells in a way that skips the stomach and intestines.

All vitamins and minerals that enter the body through the mouth via food must first be absorbed in the small intestine after which they are filtered in the liver. This process is called the "first-pass effect" and can make vitamins and minerals less effective or even ineffective.

It is impossible to achieve the same concentrations in the blood with dietary supplements than can be achieved through vitamin infusion. Moreover, large amounts of vitamins and minerals taken orally (by mouth) can result in stomach upset and diarrhea. It is believed that only 10-25% of what is ingested eventually reaches its destination. 

With intravenous treatment, the intestines and liver are bypassed. Thus, problems with poor absorption are avoided and a high dose can be given safely and effectively.

Vitamins and minerals are the foundation the body needs to function optimally. 

Why a vitamin infusion?

A vitamin or mineral deficiency can aggravate or even cause many chronic conditions. That vitamin infusions can improve chronic conditions is the experience of doctors worldwide who have devoted themselves to this type of treatment.

We see a great need for this type of supplementation in patients who heal poorly, have a poor diet, are under a lot of stress, sleep poorly, smoke, have little exercise or are just physically exhausted from too much exercise.

For patients who have difficulty digesting food (have poor pH in the stomach, "leaky gut" syndrome or have had gastrointestinal surgery) there is almost always poor absorption of micronutrients. This can lead to a variety of symptoms, such as lethargy, energy deficiencies, anemia, muscle cramps, etc.

Patients with gastric bypass are individuals who benefit greatly from intravenous administration of vitamins and minerals. With gastric bypass surgery, an important part of the gastrointestinal system that absorbs vitamins is bypassed. B vitamins, iron and mineral deficiencies are one of the most common symptoms after gastric bypass surgery. Lifelong intravenous supplementation is often necessary.
The Myers Cocktail:
The Myers Cocktail, as we also offer it consists of:
  1. Magnesium

 The Extended Myers Cocktail:
The difference from the "regular" Myers Cocktail is that there are higher doses of:
  1. Vitamin C
  2. Vitamin B complex
  3. Vitamin B6
  4. Vitamin B12
And in addition the addition of:
  1. Folic acid
  2. Selenium
  3. Arginine
  4. Zinc
  5. Glutathione - our body's strong antioxidant
Price of intravenous administration of the Comprehensive Myers Cocktail is € 150.
Glutathion: het “Master Anti-Oxidant” is een zeer belangrijk molecuul wat in elke menselijke cel te vinden is. Het werkt als de belangrijkste intracellulaire beschermer tegen oxidatieve stress. Glutathion is een aminozuur dat beschermend werkt  tegen vrije radicalen, peroxiden en zware metalen.

Glutathione has poor oral absorption and is rapidly degraded by enzymes in the digestive tract. Intravenous administration of glutathione is therefore superior.
Indications Comprehensive Myers Coctail:
Fatigue, migraines, fibromyalgia, depression, muscle spasms or spontaneous muscle cramps, poor sleep, STRESS! We often see in practice an improvement in energy and mood after an extended Myers infusion.
Furthermore, it improves recovery capacity and enhances performance and endurance. When athletes become overtrained, a series of the Myers Cocktails can help the body regain fitness in a short period of time.
Acute viral conditions such as the common cold, as well as chronic infections, recover faster.
People who recover poorly or slowly from symptoms that would take a much shorter time for a healthy person also qualify for the Myers Cocktail.
