What is a Myers Cocktail?

Calcium: Most people know that calcium strengthens bones and prevents osteoporosis. In addition, it protects cardiac muscles, controls blood pressure, prevents premenstrual depression, and helps maintain optimal body weight.
Magnesium: Magnesium is an important aid in calcium absorption and so contributes to overall bone health. Additionally, it decreases the risk of developing diabetes, maintains heart health, prevents and relieves migraines, helps relieve PMS symptoms, and reduces anxiety.
