Vitamin C IV Therapy - The Benefits

Featured Image

One ingredient in the Myer's Cocktail, a popular vitamin IV therapy, is vitamin C.

Vitamin C, also known as L-ascorbic acid, is a water-soluble vitamin that is an important antioxidant and has been shown to regenerate other antioxidants within the body. Vitamin C is required by your body for the biosynthesis of collagen, an essential component of connective tissue that plays a vital role in wound healing. Vitamin C has been shown to regenerate other antioxidants within the body as well.

Vitamin C is important in preventing and treating a variety of diseases.

Vitamin C:

  • Supports the immune system
  • Is an anti-inflammatory and potent antioxidant
  • Is required to make serotonin and other neurotransmitters
  • Helps certain neurological diseases

Vitamin C IV Therapy is More Effective and
Preferred Than Pills Because:

  • High dose vitamin C taken orally can give you diarrhea, nausea, abdominal cramps and other gastrointestinal problems due to the effect of unabsorbed vitamin C in the gastrointestinal tract.
  • When you take vitamin C orally, only a small percentage is absorbed by the body, the rest is excreted.
  • Taking large doses of vitamin C orally can raise plasma vitamin C concentrations to a maximum of 220 micromol/L, whereas a vitamin C IV can produce plasma concentrations as high as 26,000 micromol/L.

Vitamin C IV Therapy Can Effectively Treat:

  • Colds & Flu – can shorten recovery time and lessen symptoms
  • Fatigue - can help give you an energy boost especially in combination with B Vitamins
  • Wounds - can help you heal faster
  • Allergies - Vitamin C has antihistamine properties
  • Depression - Vitamin C helps raise neurotransmitter levels
  • Certain neurological conditions
