Add Ultra Protection to Your Health Management
In an increasingly interconnected world where viruses and bacteria, pollution and other outside factors can compromise our immune systems and invade our bodies, it is smart to have a protective force at work for you. Vitamin C, also known as ascorbic acid, is an antioxidant that augments the body’s ability to dispose of toxic free radicals, highly unstable molecules that can be harmful to human cells. This versatile vitamin not only can retard oxidative cell damage with its anti-viral and antibacterial properties, but it also interacts with oxygen and iron to help build high concentrations of peroxide (H2O2) that kills cancer cells and other foreign invaders. The doctors and professional support staff at Concierge IV Nutrition will work with you to arrive at the proper dose and frequency of your vitamin C treatment so that you receive maximum benefit.
How Does Vitamin C Work?
One of the most well-known nutrients, water-soluble vitamin C is found in a variety of foods, from broccoli and Brussels sprouts to lemons and papayas, strawberries, oranges, tomatoes, winter squash and more. This powerful antioxidant depletes the energy-driver adenosine triphosphate (ATP) in cancer cells and helps to safeguard the body’s cells from harmful free radicals. Vitamin C is one of the body’s necessary components for making collagen, a protein that plays a valuable role in helping wounds to heal.
Why You May Need Extra Vitamin C
The stresses of everyday life take a significant toll on our bodies and immune systems. Many individuals seeking to operate at peak level, without the common “up and down” body swings, utilize high dose vitamin C not only as a protective measure against disease but also as a way to maintain energy and vitality. Those suffering from chronic conditions such as high blood pressure, heart disease, and arthritis may also find great advantages from raising their Vitamin C intake. High dose IV vitamin C can even be used safely in conjunction with chemotherapy (except methotrexate) and radiation, in certain situations in which the patient’s oncology team has agreed to incorporate it as a treatment modality.
Vitamin C has known positive benefits of immune modulation, including anti-viral and antibacterial properties. IV vitamin C becomes an oxidant at high doses as opposed to its antioxidant function at lower doses, providing double-pronged strength in fighting disease and promoting good health. Among the benefits of High Dose IV (HDIVC) Vitamin C:
- Acts as a powerful antiviral agent
- Helps lower high blood pressure
- Combats heart disease
- Could reduce blood uric acid, related to gout and arthritis
- Boosts immune system
- Helps prevent iron deficiencies
- Aids in your skin’s natural regeneration process
- Helps create collagen, a protein vital for strong hair growth
- Relieves inflammation around the brain, to promote better memory
- Could reduce side effects of conventional cancer treatments
Possible Side Effects
Extra or even excessive, amounts of Vitamin C are unlikely to be harmful, though some individuals could experience redness and skin that feels warm or flushed, headaches or mild nausea. Our experienced Concierge IV nutritional team carefully monitors all dosages and works to ensure a pleasant, positive experience on every office visit.
