Why Choose High Dose Vitamin C Treatment?

Immune Support

Whether it’s cold & flu season, the holidays or an important time for work or family, there’s nothing worse than feeling under the weather. Vitamin C boosts immunity in three key ways:

First, Vitamin C helps encourage the production of white blood cells known as lymphocytes and phagocytes, which help protect the body against infection. Second, Vitamin C helps these white blood cells function more effectively while protecting them from damage by potentially harmful molecules, such as free radicals. Third, vitamin C is an essential part of the skin’s defense system.

One of the main reasons people take vitamin C supplements is to boost immunity.

 

Fight Inflammation and Chronic Illness

Vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant that can strengthen your body’s natural defenses and protect cells from harmful molecules called free radicals. When free radicals accumulate, they can promote a state known as oxidative stress, which has been linked to many chronic diseases.

One of the most important medical discoveries of the past two decades has been that the immune system and inflammatory processes are involved in not just a few select disorders, but a wide variety of mental and physical health problems including depression, heart disease, stroke, cancer, diabetes, chronic kidney disease, non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) and autoimmune and neurodegenerative conditions.

High dose vitamin C infusions increase your blood antioxidant levels and can help the body’s natural defenses fight inflammation which can help prevent or manage chronic illness.

Adjunct to Cancer Treatment

In the mid-20th century, a study hypothesized that cancer may be related to changes in connective, which may be a consequence of vitamin C deficiency. A review of evidence published in 1974 suggested that high-dose Vitamin C may be a potential adjunct cancer therapy.

  • Research from the 1970s of cancer patients who received high-dose intravenous vitamin C seemed to indicate a clinical benefit in symptoms, performance status and survival.
  • Intravenous administration of vitamin C produces much higher blood concentrations of ascorbate than oral administration of the same dose.
  • High dose IV vitamin C is well-tolerated.
  • Two studies of high-dose vitamin C in cancer patients reported improved quality of life and decreases in cancer-related toxicities.

Protect Memory and Boost Cognition

Studies suggest that oxidative stress and inflammation near the brain, spine, and nerves can increase the risk of dementia. Low levels of Vitamin C have been linked to an impaired ability to think and remember and several studies have shown that people with dementia may have lower blood levels of vitamin C

The Problem

A healthy body needs Vitamin C to function properly.

Vitamin C, or ascorbic acid, is an antioxidant that helps protect your cells against the effects of free radicals — molecules produced when your body breaks down food or is exposed to environmental stressors like tobacco smoke and radiation from the sun. Vitamin C also helps your body absorb and store iron.

However, your body doesn’t produce vitamin C, so you need to get it from other sources. On a day-to-day basis, stress, poor food choices, and environmental factors can deplete our bodies’ vitamin supplies and make us susceptible to illness. Vitamin C deficiency is more likely in people who:

  • Smoke or are exposed to secondhand smoking
  • Have certain gastrointestinal conditions or certain types of cancer
  • Have a limited diet that doesn’t regularly include fruits and vegetables

Vitamin C is water soluble, and the body does not store it. To maintain adequate levels of vitamin C, people need to get it regularly.

With IV Vitamin C, nutrients are delivered directly into the bloodstream and absorbed within minutes whereas absorption of oral Vitamin C may take hours— if they get absorbed at all. Many things can prevent successful absorption of oral Vitamin C supplements including:

  • Medications
  • Gut flora
  • Enzyme deficiencies
  • Chronic illnesses
  • Aging

The Benefits

The Benefits of Vitamin C May Include:

  • Cancer. High-dose vitamin C is not a substitute for radiation, chemotherapy or surgery, in which malignant cells are physically removed from the body. Some research suggests high dose vitamin C may help as an adjunct cancer treatment.
  • Common cold. Taking oral vitamin C supplements won’t prevent the common cold. Evidence also shows that the benefits of regularly taking vitamin C supplements to reduce the duration or severity of a cold are minimal.
  • Wound healing. Vitamin C helps the body produce collagen and is present in skin, muscle, and other tissues. People with a low intake of vitamin C may experience slower wound healing, as their bodies will be less able to produce collagen.
  • Cardiovascular health. Studies have suggested that Vitamin C may help widen blood vessels, improve nitric oxide production and help reduce plaque instability in atherosclerosis.
  • Diabetes. A 2019 study, which included 31 people aged around 60 years, investigated whether or not taking vitamin C supplements made a difference to their glucose levels after eating. After taking Vitamin C for 4 months, the participants’ glucose levels and blood pressure improved, compared with taking a placebo.
  • Anemia. Vitamin C enhances the absorption of iron.
  • Air pollution. Some research suggests that a combination of vitamin C and vitamin E may have an antioxidant effect that can help reduce symptoms of asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease.
  • Eye diseases. Taking oral vitamin C supplements in combination with other vitamins and minerals seems to prevent age-related macular degeneration (AMD) from worsening. Some studies also suggest that people who have higher levels of vitamin C in their diets have a lower risk of developing cataracts.
