What is IV Vitamin C ?

Vitamin C is a water-soluble vitamin that acts as an antioxidant in the body. It increases collagen production and is essential for boosting the immune system. It also plays a crucial role in preventing cell damage caused by free radicals. Free radicals are unstable atoms that can damage cells, causing illness and aging. High levels of vitamin C are associated with a lowered risk of heart disease, hypertension, and stroke. Humans, unlike some animals, cannot synthesize vitamin C by themselves, so it must be ingested in another manner. Luckily it is easy enough to find in dietary supplements and IV infusions and is readily available in many foods. Vitamin C is abundant in fruits and vegetables such as citrus, guavas, strawberries, bell peppers, kale, etc.

Vitamin C is an essential nutrient in our diet. It has many important roles in our body’s immune function, including:

– wound healing

– preventing damage to cells

– building collagen

– producing chemical messengers called neurotransmitters


You’ve probably heard taking Vitamin C–whether through a supplement or immune support drink–is a great way to combat a cold. It’s true! Vitamin C is one of the best antiviral agents for your body.

Vitamin C improves our immune system’s ability to neutralize bacterial, viral, and fungal infections.

Remember, your body can only absorb so much Vitamin C orally. Higher doses will likely cause problems in your gastrointestinal tract. IV therapy allows the body to benefit from higher doses of the vitamin without adverse effects.

Benefits of High-Dose Vitamin C IV Therapy

Vitamin C has long been recognized as a potent vitamin and antioxidant that can aid with myriad health problems and promote healing in the body. High-dose vitamin C IV therapy is an ideal way to boost the body’s immune system and have the optimum amount of this powerful antioxidant. Vitamin infusions are a great way to prevent illness and treat infections and acute or chronic health conditions.

– Wound Healing

Vitamin C helps the body form and maintain connective tissue, bones, skin, and blood vessels. In addition, high doses of vitamin C infused intravenously can aid the body in faster healing wounds, cuts, and scrapes on the skin because vitamin C is an antioxidant that helps repair tissue and reduces damage caused by inflammation.

– Better Skin

The high antioxidant properties and its role in collagen production make vitamin C an essential component of skin health. In addition, vitamin C’s free radical fighting powers make it necessary to keep skin from premature aging and wrinkles away. When taken in an IV infusion, it is doubly beneficial because the added fluids in an IV serve to hydrate the skin and improve vitamin C absorption.

– Strong Immune System

People with high levels of vitamin c in their immune system fight off infections such as a cold or the flu better than others. Vitamin C also encourages the production of white blood cells that the body uses to protect against disease. High doses of vitamin C may not be able to “cure” a cold, but it is beneficial in reducing the length and severity of the illness. 

– Improved Iron Absorption

Iron is an essential nutrient for transporting oxygen throughout the body and making red blood cells. Vitamin C aids in transforming Iron that is not absorbed into a form the body can use. As a result, it can help reduce the risk of anemia in people with iron deficiency. Studies show that taking vitamin C with meals increased iron absorption by 67%.

– Improved Mood

People with a vitamin C deficiency can feel tired and depressed, but even those with adequate vitamin C levels can experience these moods. A high dose of IV vitamin C can significantly improve mood by fighting against free radicals that cause oxidative stress. Oxidative stress in the body can cause neuropsychological disorders like depression and anxiety.

– Reduced Lead Toxicity

An increase in lead in the body is sometimes linked to Alzheimer’s disease and lead poisoning, but a megadose of vitamin C is an effective treatment for repairing the damage. In addition, studies on children and adults have shown that a higher vitamin C intake results in lowered blood lead levels.

– High Blood Pressure

One in three people suffers from high blood pressure, which can put the body at risk for heart disease. Hypertension, another name for high blood pressure, can be reduced by taking high-dose vitamin C. Vitamin C has been shown to reduce both systolic and diastolic blood pressure in adults.

– Cancer Therapy Aid

High doses of vitamin C protect the body from oxidative stress that can damage cells. Researchers have found that using vitamin C in conjunction with chemotherapy and other cancer rehabs may improve the effectiveness of these treatments. Further research is still being conducted on this therapy.

As shown by these benefits above, vitamin C is a super vitamin that can help the body in multiple ways. So much modern medicine focuses on reacting to a disease or a sickness but doesn’t focus on prevention- the best way to avoid getting sick – is prevention! Vitamin C aids in the prevention of diseases and aging-related illnesses and is also helpful in repairing the damage that has already occurred to cells.
