About Vitamin C
Vitamin C (ascorbic acid) is a water-soluble nutrient essential for growth and repair of all the tissues in your body.1 Your body can’t make or store vitamin C, so it’s important to get plenty of vitamin C on a daily basis.
Vitamin C is well known for strengthening the immune system and guarding against sickness. Vitamin C is also important for healthy skin and can give you a quick pick-me-up when you’re feeling a little run down.
Our Vitamin C drip also contains magnesium, glutathione and other beneficial nutrients.
What you need to know about vitamin C infusions and cancer
Can high dose vitamin C IV therapy help people with cancer?
Scientists are currently studying whether IV vitamin C treatments can boost the effectiveness of cancer treatments such as radiation or chemotherapy.Researchers have been studying the effects of high-dose vitamin C as a cancer treatment since the 1970s, but even today there have been no conclusive large-scale controlled clinical trials defining the precise role intravenous vitamin C has in cancer treatment or recovery from cancer treatment side effects.
High dose vitamin C treatments have been studied and proven to be safe and well-tolerated with minimal side effects. While vitamin C has not yet been definitively proven to kill cancer cells, we do know it does not harm healthy cells.
Because vitamin C IV infusions can help people struggling with fatigue, fighting infections, dealing with a weakened immune system and healing from surgery, vitamin C IV treatments can help cancer survivors and people recovering from the side effects of cancer treatments improve quality of life.
If you or a loved one has been diagnosed with cancer or are recently in remission, we recommend talking to your doctor before beginning intravenous vitamin infusion treatments.
Can Vitamin C IV therapy prevent cancer?
While it cannot cure cancer directly, studies have shown that higher levels of Vitamin C in the bloodstream are associated with decreased risk of:
- Breast Cancer
- Lung Cancer
- Prostate Cancer
- Colon Cancer
- Liver Cancer
Vitamin C is known to be a powerful antioxidant, reduce cellular inflammation and protect healthy cells from free radical damage. There have not been any definitive clinical trials proving vitamin C helps prevent cancer, however studies have produced evidence of a protective effect of vitamin C, in particular for non-hormone-dependent types of cancer.
Vitamin C and Rheumatoid Arthritis
Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) causes an abnormal immune system reaction leading to destruction of cartilage, joint linings and even bone. Researchers have found patients diagnosed with RA are typically deficient in vitamin C.
Because oxidative stress is higher in people with RA, reducing oxidative stress and inflammation can protect the tissues under attack by the disease. Studies have shown high-dose intravenous vitamin C can reduce pain and inflammation associated with rheumatoid arthritis.
Vitamin C is necessary for collagen production. Collagen isn’t just important for healthy, young-looking skin, it’s the main protein in bone and joint tissue. Rheumatoid arthritis causes inflammation in the lining of joints, leading to damage and deformity. Studies have shown high-dose vitamin C treatments can reduce the risk of developing inflammatory arthritis such as RA.
Vitamin C not only facilitates collagen production, it’s a powerful antioxidant fighting against the molecules triggering inflammation in the joints. Infection is also thought to trigger rheumatoid arthritis flare-ups, and vitamin C plays an important role in fighting off infections.
Vitamin C infusions are safe and beneficial for the vast majority of people.
Vitamin C IV for Colds & Flu
Vitamin C is essential for immune system support. Studies have shown vitamin C levels drop when your body is fighting a cold or flu, making it even more important to keep up vitamin C levels.
All of our IV treatments, including Vitamin C Boost, deliver instant hydration and 100% absorption of essential nutrients, electrolytes and more.
Frequently Asked Questions on Vitamin C
What does Vitamin C do?
Vitamin C benefits more of the body than you’d expect, including your skin, hair, bones, and blood vessels, as well as your energy levels and mood. Vitamin C can help reduce seasonal allergy symptoms by preventing histamine formation.
While some studies show vitamin C is good for a variety of medical uses (such as improving Alzheimer’s, fertility, arthritis, asthma, diabetes, anemia, depression, and more), further research is needed to determine how effective it is.
What happens when you’re low on Vitamin C?
Severe vitamin C deficiency (scurvy) is a serious disorder no longer common in the developed world. Without treatment, scurvy leads to gum disease, hair loss, internal bleeding, decreased red blood cell count and skin problems.Early symptoms of vitamin C deficiency include fatigue, depression, irritability, muscle pain and joint pain.
Why not just take Vitamin C supplements?
When we consume vitamin C in food, drinks or supplements less than 20% of the vitamin C is actually absorbed by our bodies. With IV vitamin infusions, 100% of the vitamin C can be used by the body immediately.
Another reason to choose fast-acting IV therapy for vitamin C treatments is because once inside the body vitamin C has a half-life of only 2 hours.
