This is called a Myer’s Cocktail IV.
We hiked all day in Sedona and with the intense heat, we were feeling dehydrated and our skin looked parched. This was a great way to get some hydration “fuel” back into the body.
- Hydrate your body
- Give your body necessary vitamins and nutrients
- Boost your energy

It consists of the following ingredients.
Saline: aka saltwater, is what delivers the nutrients in the Myers’ cocktail to your system. The saline also replenishes your electrolytes, which can help keep you hydrated and energized.
Vitamin B Complex: Includes vitamins B6, riboflavin, folic acid and niacin. The B vitamin mixture can give you a nutrient boost.
Glutathione: Made from amino acids, the antioxidant can help detoxify your body. The substance may also help your immune system if it is weakened due to old age or illness.
Vitamin B12: Often used to maintain nerve and blood cell health. It can help reduce feelings of fatigue.
Vitamin C: Known for its potential immune system boost, but the nutrient has other purposes. Vitamin C is an antioxidant that the body uses to maintain bones, muscle and blood vessels. The vitamin is also useful for collagen production and iron absorption.
Zinc: Helps the body resist infection. It also aids in tissue repair. Your body needs zinc, but it does not store it, meaning you need to get it from food or supplements to maintain your health.
Magnesium: Helps your circulatory system, keeping your blood pressure normal and your heart rhythm healthy. It also helps keeps your bones strong. A lack of magnesium can cause inflammation, which is associated with other diseases, such as heart disease.
