Vitamin C has many benefits. Intravenous vitamin C is an immune system booster and has anti-viral, anti-bacterial and antihistamine properties.  It supports your adrenal glands, delivers sustained energy levels, and enhances and protects your skin. It also strengthens your bones, boosts your immune system, and even helps fight the adverse effects of chemotherapy and radiation. Very high doses of vitamin C are thought to be toxic (lethal) to cancer cells. High-dose vitamin C IV infusion therapy may be used as an adjuvant therapy for many health conditions including cancer treatment.

Vitamin C exists in the foods we eat, but only in a small amount. High-dose vitamin C IV infusion therapy enhances the benefits that the nutrient offers.

INFORMATION:

Ascorbic Acid

Ascorbic acid, also known as Vitamin C, is an antioxidant that plays an important role in the body. It not only protects the body’s cells from damage, but it is also needed to maintain the health of skin, teeth, bone, cartilage, and blood vessels. Some studies have shown that it also helps improve brain function in people with cognitive impairments such as Alzheimer’s and dementia. Most people gain the essential amount of ascorbic acid needed from their diet. Others may require supplementation. Without the proper amount of vitamin C, people are at risk for cardiovascular illness, compromised immune systems, premature aging, increased stress response, and poor energy production. Extreme vitamin C deficiency can lead to a condition called scurvy. Symptoms of scurvy include rash or brown spots on the skin, muscle weakness, pale skin, joint pain, tiredness, depression, or tooth loss.

About Intravenous Vitamin C and Oral Vitamin C

The high doses of High C IV Infusion may only be given by an intravenous route. Oral administration of a dose this high would not be tolerated or absorbed by the gastrointestinal tract. Many intolerable side effects would occur with oral doses anywhere near these levels. IV infusions of high doses of vitamin C along with various other antioxidants and nutrients may be given to assist in treating various cancers. High doses of vitamin C given intravenously have very few side effects.

Possible Side Effects

Side effects of IV vitamin C treatments are infrequent and usually very minimal. The most common side effect is irritation at the site of intravenous insertion. Rare accounts of tumor necrosis (death) with hemorrhage have been reported in the literature. Because of this rare concern, we begin with lower doses of vitamin C and increase the dose based upon the patient’s tolerance to each previous dose.

Indications:

Ascorbic acid is indicated for the prevention and treatment of scurvy. Other indications include hemovascular disorders, burns, aging, delayed fracture and wound healing, prevention of cardiovascular issues, cognitive impairments such as dementia, and in shortening the length of common colds.

Side Effects:

– Heartburn

– Diarrhea

– Nausea

– Stomach cramps

– Stomachache

– If hives, difficulty breathing, swelling of the face, lips, tongue, or throat occur, this is an allergic reaction and requires emergency medical attention

Contraindications:

Patients who are diabetic, prone to kidney stones, undergoing stool occult blood tests, those on sodium-restricted diets, and those on anticoagulant therapy should not take excessive amounts of ascorbic acid over an extended period of time. Ascorbic acid is not recommended in those who are pregnant or nursing due to the uncertainty of fetal or infant harm.

Dosage:

Ascorbic acid (vitamin C) is normally administered orally with food except for those who suffer from malabsorption. This requires another route of administration. Ascorbic acid can also be given intramuscularly or intravenously. Patient dosages depend on their individual needs. Talk with your doctor or pharmacist for any questions related to the dosage, route of administration, or for any questions or concerns.

Interactions:

There are many medications and supplements that can interact with ascorbic acid. It is very important to bring a list of the products and medications you are taking to prevent any future issues.
