Natural Defense IV Drip vs. Myers Cocktail: Strengthening Your Immunity the Liquivida® Way

by Jon Stojan on Jan 11, 2024 8:45:00 AM

Winter is coming. And while of course, your overall wellness is important year-round, during this most wonderful time of year, known for increased activity, increased travel, and increased exposure to people, also comes increased stress and increased exposure to germs. Prioritizing your immune health truly needs to be at the top of your list. Boosting your immune system now will save you valuable time and money later. As they say, an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.

Dr. Kendrick Heywood, Medical Director for Liquivida® cautions that “stress, lack of sleep, and weight gain have detrimental effects on many levels, including a patient’s testosterone levels.” In addition to sexual health, testosterone impacts bone health and mood in both women and men.  Even if you’re doing all the right things, with diet and exercise, the benefits of  IV Therapy delivering the vitamins and nutrients the body needs directly into the bloodstream, bypassing the gut for full absorption, can give additional support to your immune system and limit the impacts of stress on your body.

Liquivida’s Natural Defense IV is a great resource for boosting your immune system and separates itself from the original Myers Cocktail by providing higher doses of the crucial nutrients the body needs to fortify your immunity and maintain optimal health.

Comparing Liquivida’s Natural Defense IV Drip to the Myers Cocktail

The table below highlights the significant differences in nutrient content between the two: 


Myers Cocktail

Natural Defense

Magnesium Chloride



Calcium Gluconate



Thiamine HCL (B1)



Riboflavin (B2)



Pyridoxine HCL (B6)



Niacinamide (B3)



Daxpanthenol (B5)



Cyanocobalamin (B12)



Ascorbic Acid



This comparison clearly demonstrates that Liquivida's Natural Defense IV Drip boasts significantly higher levels of these essential nutrients, making it an excellent choice for bolstering your immune system.   

Unlocking the Health Benefits

Now, let's delve into the impressive health benefits of the key nutrients found in the Natural Defense IV Drip,

  • Magnesium Chloride is a mineral that the cells, nerves, muscles, bones, and heart need to be healthy and strong, and also improves metabolism and nutrient absorption.
  • Calcium supports healthy brain function. Calcium deficiencies can lead to anxiety and moodiness.
  • Thiamine (B1) – This vitamin processes and obtains energy from the foods you eat by turning nutrients into usable energy.
  • Riboflavin (B2) is a micronutrient that is easily absorbed by the body to keep you functioning properly.
  • Pyridoxine (B6) is one of the most common nutritional deficiencies; this vitamin supports your heart health. Low levels may predispose people to depression, as well. Chronic stress can deplete B6. Substantial B6 content can help your body better cope with stress.
  • Niacin (B3) assists in the functioning of the digestive system and nerves and transforms food into energy.
  • Daxpanthenol (B5) is necessary for making red blood cells, and along with all B vitamins, helps the body convert the proteins, carbohydrates, and fats you eat into energy, helping you stay sharp and focused throughout the day.
  • Cyanocobalamin (B12) plays a pivotal role in forming red blood cells, supporting the central nervous system, and boosting energy levels, ensuring that the blood transports nutrients efficiently throughout the body. It can help you feel more alert and is a valuable addition to post-dehydration recovery.
  • Ascorbic Acid (C) plays an important role in immune function, helping to combat allergies, colds, and even flu-like symptoms. As the human body does not produce Vitamin C, it is an essential dietary component.


Beyond immune support, the rich blend of essential vitamins and minerals in this Liquivida® IV Drip, offers an array of benefits, from stress reduction to improved mood, energy, and overall vitality.
