The Alcohol 'Hangover' Recovery infusion may help reverse the symptoms of alcohol intoxication and toxicity through intravenous (IV) replenishment of nutrients. This IV infusion includes a combination of the Myers Cocktail base, Magnesium, Trace Minerals, Zofran, L-Glutathione, L-Glycine, and Methylcobalamin (B12). It is administered in a 1000mL saline bag to improve hydration. Below is a breakdown of the benefits provided by each of these:
Myers Cocktail - A combination of Ascorbic Acid (Vitamin C), Pyridoxine (Vitamin B6), Calcium Gluconate, Magnesium, and Vitamin B-Complex shown to be effective against acute asthma attacks, migraines, fatigue, fibromyalgia, acute muscle spasms, upper respiratory tract infections, chronic sinusitis, seasonal allergic rhinitis, cardiovascular disease, and other disorders.
Magnesium Sulfate - Supplemented in patients who are depleted of minerals; used as a muscle relaxant and can assist with pain relief; provides a calming effect which can help the patient relax/sleep. Maintains normal muscle tissue, regulates heart rhythms, supports immune function, and keeps nerves functioning properly. Helps regulate energy metabolism, maintains blood sugar, and regulates calcium levels.
Trace Minerals - Replenishes depleted minerals (typically Zinc, Copper, Manganese, Chromium, and Selenium). The body requires many different minerals in trace amounts. Most of these can be replaced with oral therapies, but when these minerals become severely depleted it is advisable to use IV administration to replenish them rapidly. Certain therapies call for trace minerals to enhance or address specific deficiencydisease. Some elements like iron, zinc, and selenium are important enough to be considered separately.
Zofran - Helps reduce nausea associated with hangover symptoms.
L-Glutathione - A potent antioxidant which helps repair damaged cells, detoxify the liver, boost the immune system, and assist in the metabolism of toxins. It's primary function is to fight against free radicals and it's benefits mostly pertain to the halting of disease. It can help repair damaged cells caused by stress, radiation, pollution, infection, and ta host of other ailments.
L-Glycine - An amino acid that helps improve mood, energy, and muscle performance. It helps with cognitive function during low carbohydrate diets or in general. It is considered a glucogenic amino acid, which helps regulate blood sugar levels. This may be useful for treating symtpoms characterized by low energy and fatigue, such as hypoglycemia, anemia, and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS). It is essential for a healthy, normall functioning digestive system and helps regulate the synthesis of the bile acid used to digest fats.
Methylcobalamin (Vitamin B12) - Increases red blood cells and appetite; can be used to treat anemia; and improves mood and energy. It has some metabolic and therapeutic applications not shared by other forms of vitamin B12 (i.e. cyanocobalamin).
