High-Dosage Intravenous Vitamin C is one of the most frequently requested IV treatments all over the world! Independent of its use to treat the disease scurvy which is caused by a Vitamin C deficiency, this IV has been widely used by the public to prevent infections and treat the common cold. Complementary and Alternative Medicine (CAM) practitioners have also used this antioxidant treatment to treat autoimmune diseases, cancer and other illnesses.
Many people believe consuming vitamin C through foods like oranges and lemons provide a sufficient amount in order to combat many of the above conditions. However, research has shown that only a small percentage of Vitamin C is absorbed through food and oral supplements alone. However, when delivered by IV, 100% of this vitamin is bioavailable, meaning it is completely absorbed by our bodies.
This treatment is particularly beneficial when an individual is experiencing extreme fatigue, when their immune system needs a boost, for collagen synthesis in aging, and to help battle side effects of cancer treatments like nausea and vomiting.
