The Benefits of Vitamin C Therapy
Vitamin C (L-ascorbic acid) is a micronutrient present in foods like oranges, papaya, peppers, grapefruit, and kale. It acts as an antioxidant that lessens oxidative stress and protects the body from free radical-induced cell damage. You must get vitamin C from supplemental sources as humans cannot produce vitamin C of their own.
Why is the IV Route Preferable?
Vitamin C is present in small amounts in the foods we eat. High dose vitamin therapy can enhance the benefits of this nutrient. IV vitamin C therapy makes vitamin C enter the blood directly through the veins, producing higher levels of vitamin in the body at a faster rate than oral intake.
Benefits of High-Dose Vitamin C IV Therapy
High-dose IV vitamin C therapy can provide many health benefits. The most potent include:
1. Immune Boost
Vitamin C helps the body to defend against infectious agents(such as viruses, bacteria). High-dose vitamin C generates high peroxide levels that protect against these pathogens. Vitamin C also enhances the production of white blood cells. Therefore, high-dose IV vitamin C therapy can significantly impact the treatment and prevention of infections.
- Role in Influenza(flu): The high-dose of IV vitamin C therapy can lessen the severity of
symptoms of the H1N1 influenza virus. It can be used as add-on therapy in combating the
- Role in coronavirus infection: High dose vitamin C may be useful in coronavirus
infection as it plays a role in cytoprotection, supporting host immune defense, and
immunoregulation. It reduces the mortality in these patients.5
2. Lowering the risk of heart disease
Vitamin C can reduce the risk of heart disease by decreasing free radicals’ build-up in the body.
Free radicals produce oxidative stress, and it is associated with heart disease and other chronic
conditions. The intake of 500 mg of Vitamin C daily can prevent the risk of heart disease.
3. Lessening of Stress
Vitamin C reduces the stress hormones level in your blood. It also lessens physical and
4. Collagen Production
Collagen(structural protein) is required to maintain the structure of a tissue. Lack of collagen causes thinning of skin and weakening of bones, blood vessels, tendons, and ligaments. High-dose IV vitamin C therapy promotes skin health and reduces the risk of these severe tissue-related complications.
5. Energy Production
Vitamin C is required for the breakdown of fat for energy utilization. It plays a role in the synthesis of carnitine( the vehicle for transporting fats into the mitochondria). A high-dose vitamin can impact our energy levels. High-dose IV vitamin C therapy can decrease fatigue and
produces energizing effects that last up to 24 hours.
6. Antioxidant Properties
Vitamin C acts as a potent antioxidant that reduces the free radicals generated by metabolism and toxins and chemicals exposure. These antioxidant properties fortify cell structures (like collagen, proteins, and DNA). Vitamin C reduces the damage caused by environmental pollutants(such as ultraviolet UV rays).
7. Cancer, Radiation, and Chemotherapy
Vitamin C may also be beneficial in the treatment of cancer. High-dose IV vitamin C increases the energy and mood levels in patients receiving cancer treatment. IV vitamin C therapy also protects the genome integrity and regulates DNA functions, reducing cancer risk.
Vitamin C has a significant impact on the overall health of a person. At higher doses, it can boost your immune responses( prevent the body from illnesses) and increase your energy levels and lessen oxidative stress. It delays the signs of aging. It supports your adrenal glands, sustains energy levels, and protects your skin. The vitamin C effects can be achieved immediately if used in IV therapy form since it bypasses the gut metabolism and is readily available to the body’s
tissues for use.
IV vitamin C therapy has many benefits in various situations( sickness, fatigue, and injury). It would be best to harness the benefits of high dose Vitamin C by choosing IV therapy treatment. So, schedule a time to drip, and our team will be there to help you!
