The Myers’ Cocktail (sometimes spelled Meyer’s) isn’t exactly a cure, but it’s known to help with hangovers for a few reasons:

  • Rehydration: Alcohol is a diuretic, meaning it increases urination and can lead to dehydration. The Myers’ Cocktail is delivered intravenously, replenishing fluids much faster than drinking water.

  • Electrolytes: Dehydration from alcohol also means losing electrolytes. The cocktail includes electrolytes to help counter this imbalance.

  • Vitamins and Antioxidants: The Myers’ Cocktail contains B vitamins, which can help with fatigue, and antioxidants like glutathione, which may aid the body in processing toxins from alcohol.

While it addresses some hangover symptoms, it’s important to note that Myers’ Cocktails have uses beyond hangovers and aren’t a guaranteed hangover fix. They are best administered by a healthcare professional.
