HIGH DOSE VITAMIN C INFUSION
(15g infusion may be combined with UPGRADED infusion bundle)
Vitamin C is an antioxidant that assists in building collagen. It’s necessary for growing, developing, and repairing tissues; vitamin C is included in many body functions, supports the immune system, detoxifies the body, and helps fight off viruses. High dose Vitamin C can help relieve the signs/symptoms of a variety of chronic diseases, such as Lyme Disease, Arthritis, bacterial and viral infections, heart disease and many more. It can lessen pain after injury, improve energy/fatigue, and help the body to heal faster. May be considered as adjunctive support in cancer therapy.
This IV drip may also support patients who are immunocompromised (or lack the ability to respond to infections normally due to a weakened immune system). Research has shown that when given to cancer patients there has been a reduction in their chemotherapy/radiation symptoms and pain levels, making treatments more tolerable!
NOTE: We offer a standard dose 15g infusion for $155 unless we have a normal G6PD result on file. If you are interested in higher doses, this quick lab test can be ordered by your treating Physician. Please contact us for more details!
More About High Dose Vitamin C
Vitamin C is one of the best-known nutrients. This water-soluble vitamin is found in a wide variety of foods, including broccoli, Brussels sprouts, citrus fruits, papayas, potatoes, strawberries, and winter squash.
It acts as a powerful antioxidant, depleting the energy-driver adenosine triphosphate (ATP) in cancer cells and helping to rid the body’s cells of harmful free radicals. It’s a necessary component for making collagen, a structural protein in bones and skin that also plays an important role in helping wounds heal.
Because your body doesn’t produce its own vitamin C — meaning it’s an essential nutrient — you need to get it from your diet or from supplements. Most people get enough of the vitamin from their diet, so a deficiency is usually seen only in people who:
Smoke or are exposed to secondhand smoke
Have a limited diet without enough fruits and vegetables
Have certain GI conditions or certain types of cancer
Severe vitamin C deficiency leads to scurvy, a disease that causes anemia, bruising, bleeding gums, and poor wound healing. Fun fact: British sailors got the nickname “limeys” because, after they discovered the importance of vitamin C, they would carry limes onboard their ships to prevent scurvy.
The recommended daily allowance for vitamin C is 90 mg for adult men and 75 mg for adult women. Because it’s water-soluble, your body doesn’t store any excess, but rather excretes it in the urine. That means you constantly need to refresh the supply.
