IV Hydration Therapy

What is IV hydration therapy?

What is the Myer’s cocktail?

Optimal Performance Medicine uses the Myer’s cocktail for IV hydration therapy. The Myer’s cocktail contains a mix of vital nutrients that support good health, including:

Vitamin C

Vitamin C assists in the production of your body’s immune fighting cells, and as an antioxidant helps reduce inflammation to support overall health and wellness.

B complex

The B vitamins play a number of essential roles in maintaining good health, including regulating your appetite, improving skin and eye health, and metabolizing food into energy.

Vitamin B12

Vitamin B12 is the B vitamin that helps your body produce more red blood cells and may provide an additional boost in energy.


The magnesium in your Myer’s cocktail supports muscle and nerve function, bone health, and your immune system. It’s also an important component of more than 300 enzymatic reactions that occur in your body.


In addition to bone health, calcium assists in the proper functioning of your muscles and nerves and cell signaling.

The Myer’s cocktail has been used for hydration therapy for more than 60 years.

Am I a good candidate for IV hydration therapy?

The team at Optimal Performance Medicine determines if you’re a good candidate for IV hydration therapy after a comprehensive evaluation. The treatment is safe, effective, and well-tolerated.

If you’re not feeling quite like yourself or feel that your body needs a boost to provide extra protection during flu season, then you may want to contact the office today and set up a consultation.

What can I expect during IV hydration therapy?

IV hydration therapy at Optimal Performance Medicine is a relaxing experience. The length of treatment varies depending on your needs, but it shouldn’t take more than an hour for your body to get the infused fluid and nutrients.

Because IV hydration therapy bypasses your digestive system, the nutrients get delivered directly to the organs and tissues that need them for an immediate effect.
