Do NFL teams use Myers IV?

Recommended Posts

The state of the art treatment for dehydration due to GI virus these days seems to include not only IV rehydration, but Myers.

(Myers is a solution of B vitamins, vit. C, magnesium, calcium, and glutathione).  

 

Apparently give a pukey student IV rehydration and some Myers Cocktail and they feel right chipper and trot right off to drill down on the Tensor Calculus and Fluid Mechanics. (the cheap treatment is an anti-emetic drug to stop vomiting and a couple bottles of nasty-tasting oral rehydration salts you tell them to quaff.  My kid has to take the cheap road.)

 

So I was wondering....is this something NFL teams do?  In addition to countering the effects of dehydration due to vomiting/“the runs”, it might help if guys are just starting to feel exhausted and run down.

 

And then of course there’s this for the Party Gang:  Apparently it’s a business enterprise in Las Vegas now!  😂

 “Hangover Heaven: When you’re in Las Vegas, the last thing you need is a hangover ruining your fun!  Hangover Heaven provides the most complete hangover treatment, designed to rid you of your worst hangover symptoms safely and effectively....45 minutes...$199”

 

When these guys are earning a minimum of $32,000/game, seems cost-effect if someone is “under the weather” for any reason

Where I live. So Cal. IV treatments are very common and have been around for several years. Easy hangover cure. Several different cocktails to match your ailments. 
 

There is one of these in every strip mall and supplement shop. 

 

These guys will even come to your house.

Affordable and Effective. I’d recommend. 
 

The NFL definitely uses these techniques for recovery.

Fellow parents and I were joking that someone should start a business near my kid’s school.  Between the flu and the parties, business would be boomin’.  Hella business op.

 

I’m cheap, my kid still has to “make do” with DripDrop (oral rehydration salts) and vitamin pills.

 

Glad to know NFL teams use.

The Bills don't even get what your kid gets.

 

Ralph is cheaper.

I did the Vegas treatment during March Madness, it is well worth the money if you need to keep a vegas bender going, and it helps mitigate the pain of your bracket being busted on day 2 of the tournament.

I wish they had this when in my 20’s.  I’ll have to tell my 21 yr. old son in college.  He’s actually pretty responsible, but sure his fraternity brothers would like this information.

There was a study in either 2011 or 12, where 75% of the league reported they were doing pre-game IVs for players with a B compound/ electrolyte solution.  This, in addition to halftime and post-game.  I think I remember the IV was very similar to what you’re describing.  Not sure if it’s still common practice but most of the league does it to avoid dehydration issues.

I'd never trust some marketing gimmick that used Roman numerals to make it seem legit.  Myers 1,2 and 3 evidently flopped.

IV’s are obviously crucial treatment methods in medicine, but many of the other fads such as how the NFL uses them are unproven. The NFL doesn’t just use them to hydrate, but to “hyper hydrate” guys for better performance. Pro sports are all about pushing humans to the next level, and they’ll give anything a try, regardless of how useless or unsafe something is.

Yeah, the whole IV trend is mostly a scam. There’s little science that actually back the claims. It is a business that’s starting to make some good money though.

More importantly, why don’t more NFL teams use Sills IV?  🤔

I use a product called drip drop. Use it when 1/2 marathon training, post hockey, and It’s been a life saver from some epic hangovers. Good friend is an athletic trainer at a major university in a revenue sport and he turned me onto it. Tastes pretty damn good too!

Surprised the anti-drunk pills haven't taken off more...there are pills that you can take that contain enzymes that break down alcohol in your stomach BEFORE it gets absorbed by the body so you can go out and drink a bunch and not worry about getting a DWI.  Read about these several years ago and thought those would really become popular but they haven't for an unknown reason.

my wife has tried something like this, and claims they've helped.  i'm not sure it would get you around a DWI, but apparently they do work on some level.

 

i personally just take my hangovers like a man.

Wait Wat?  I thought the whole point of drinking was to get the alcohol absorbed INTO your body so your brain feels the effects.

If you don't want so much alcohol absorbed, why not just...Drink Less?

Cray-cray, I know.

Way off topic.  Years ago when dinosaurs roamed the earth and I worked in Big City Pedi ER....we would get 17 year 364-day-olds carted in from rock concerts pukin' passed-out drunk and high.  SOP was to start an IV, draw blood for a toxic screen, and run a couple liters of fluid into them....meaning they would feel pretty good in the am.

 

So we had a problem with repeat offenders....until a clever nurse got the idea to not undress them completely.  Nope, leave the briefs or panties and jeans on.

 

When a kid had to go home in the am in urine-soaked jeans, the incidence of repeats dropped WAY off.

 

Huh. Howboudat.
