High Dose Vitamin C IV Drip vs Oral Supplements - What's the Difference?

Vitamin C, an effective antioxidant, has been known to aid with various medical conditions. It may be especially beneficial for those looking to strengthen their immunity, beautify their skin and combat fatigue or chronic illness.

However, high doses of vitamin C that must be administered through intravenous infusion are unsuitable for everyone. They may cause serious side effects in those with G6PD deficiency or haemochromatosis.

Boosts Immune System

Vitamin C is an integral component of the immune system, helping to prevent infection and boost overall well-being. It has many beneficial properties, such as aiding collagen synthesis, combatting free radicals and improving iron absorption. Furthermore, this potent antioxidant works tirelessly to strengthen immunity within the body.

Oral supplements provide high amounts of this nutrient, but IV therapy is the only way to get it directly into the bloodstream. This guarantees that they reach cells and tissues where they are most needed. It's a safe, efficient, and easy way for individuals to boost their vitamin C intake in the body while aiding their immune system in fighting infections and other health conditions.

If you're searching for a natural, drug-free way to strengthen your immune system and improve overall wellbeing, IV Vitamin C therapy is the ideal option. Combining an IV infusion of 10g vitamin C with daily oral supplementation of 2g can provide powerful protection from colds and flu. Discuss with your doctor which type of vitamin drip would be most beneficial to you! Reach out today to book an appointment!

Aids in Iron Absorption

Vitamin C is an essential nutrient that aids the body in the absorption of iron. It also supports blood vessel health, reduces oxidative stress and strengthens the immune system – all found in foods like citrus fruits and red meats.

If you're having difficulty absorbing iron from your diet, high-dose vitamin C IV therapy may be able to help. This is an effective way to ensure that your body gets all of the essential nutrients without causing any digestive upset.

Iron is an essential mineral for the proper functioning of your immune system and oxygen transport throughout your body. Additionally, iron has been known to enhance moods and combat depression.

However, people with gene mutations such as G-6-PD deficiency or hemochromatosis should avoid high doses of vitamin C due to its potential risk for hemolysis - the destruction of red blood cells. A blood test should be taken prior to receiving high-dose vitamin C therapy to confirm your health for the procedure and discuss any health conditions which could be affected by it.

Improves Mood

Maintaining a healthy lifestyle through food, exercise, and adequate sleep is the foundation for happiness. But taking certain supplements can also help, such as vitamin C. A high dose can provide an immense boost to your immune system by increasing production of white blood cells (WBCs) and shielding against free radical damage.

This nutrient plays a significant role in brain function and can improve your mood by stimulating serotonin production, the feel-good neurotransmitter. Furthermore, studies have noted that vitamin C helps reduce stress and anxiety - all of which may contribute to an overall happier you. For instance, research from UCLA revealed people who took more of this essential antioxidant had lower rates of depression, anxiety and stress than those who took the least amount.

Helps Fight Cancer

Vitamin C is an incredibly potent immune booster, helping to strengthen your body's natural defences. Additionally, it reduces oxidative stress and speeds up wound healing.

Research suggests vitamin C can effectively combat cancer by strengthening your body's immune system and aiding it in killing tumor cells. Studies have even shown that high doses of Vitamin C given intravenously are more efficient than oral supplements.

IV vitamin C therapy bypasses the regulated intestinal uptake of this essential nutrient, producing significantly higher peak plasma concentrations. Furthermore, high doses can boost hydrogen peroxide deep within the tissue where cancer cells reside as peroxide is one of the white blood cell's key mechanisms for fighting infection and cancer by reacting with molecular oxygen within tumour cells.

Intravenous Vitamin C is a safer way to get this vital nutrient into your bloodstream than through oral administration, and can safely be combined with chemotherapy or radiation treatments. However, always consult your doctor before using high doses of Vitamin C as a cancer treatment.

Vitamin C not only kills cancer cells but it's a powerful antioxidant that shields DNA and other important cell structures from free radical damage. Furthermore, this nutrient plays an essential role in the production of collagen--a type of protein essential for muscle repair and tissue growth--which plays an essential role in collagen synthesis.

Recent research published in Science Translational Medicine suggests that high doses of Vitamin C intravenous treatments can be effective at killing cancer cells. The researchers discovered that vitamin C killed more cancer cells than radiation therapy alone did.

Through IV drip, high doses of Vitamin C are delivered to cancer cells at high concentrations and react with their molecular oxygen, creating large amounts of hydrogen peroxide - an effective anti-cancer agent. This reaction can eliminate cancer cells in their early stages before they have a chance to spread throughout the body.
