Patients have reported an improvement in migraine headaches, hypertension and fibromyalgia.

The benefit of give  nutrients intravenously?
It is easier to achieve higher levels of nutrients when they are given intravenously. This method of administration bypasses the intestinal tract. For people who have GI disorders or trouble with digestion,  this can be of benefit. Some nutrients such as Vitamin C can cause diarrhea if taken in high dosages orally. This is not a concern when the nutrient is provided via and IV.

The power of magnesium: Magnesium is a key ingredient in the Myer’s cocktail and promotes relaxation of both blood vessels and skeletal muscle and reduces muscle spasm. In addition to having direct pharmacological effects, IV nutrient therapy is more effective for correcting intracellular nutrient deficits because some nutrients are present at much higher concentrations in the cells than in the serum and the high blood levels achieved with IV drive the nutrients into the cell.
