I.V. Vitamin C can be helpful in supporting the body’s management of many acute and chronic conditions, as well as maintaining general health and well being. While oral supplementation of Vitamin C is useful, high doses can cause gastrointestinal upset. Therefore, I.V. Vitamin C can be tolerated in much higher doses without this effect as the Digestive System is bypassed entirely.
Furthermore, research now supports the ideology that Vitamin C can reduce chemotherapy/radiotherapy induced side effects, such as fatigue, weight loss and can improve the general quality of life through its antioxidants and anti-inflammatory activities.
There is also evidence that suggests Vitamin C has beneficial effects for many aspects of health and wellbeing, including:
- Wound healing including trauma and post operative wounds
- Injury including fractures and muscle injury
- Immune support
- Chronic conditions including cancer and cardiovascular disease
- Acute diseases
- Viral infections including mononucleosis (glandular fever)
- Bacterial infections
- Disease prevention
Before having a Vitamin C infusion you will undergo a Registered Nurse Health Assessment. After your first treatment and before your second you will be required to have a simple blood test to check that your kidneys are functioning normally.
