High Dose Vitamin C

Back to IV Treatments
Vitamin C is a nutrient that is not naturally occurring in the body; thus, it must be derived from food or dietary supplements. Vitamin C prevent oxidative stress and plays a key role in making collagen in the body. A lack of vitamin C can cause scurvy disease. And it has been shown to benefit patients with cancer and heart disease. Some general benefits include:
  • Prevents oxidative stress
  • Helps improve immunity
  • Increases iron absorption
  • Boosts mood and energy

The Full Nitty Gritty

Higher levels of vitamin C can reach your body through slow intravenous infusion rather than oral and food supplements. Vitamin C is important to improve your immunity and iron absorption in the body, especially if you are suffering from chronic or heart diseases.

Research has also shown that high-dose vitamin C administered intravenously helps cancer patients lead a better quality of life, as it is toxic to cancer cells. Overall, this IV therapy serves as a powerful antioxidant and helps you manage your disease.

Ascorbic Acid (Vitamin C)

Ascorbic acid, also known as Vitamin C, is a water-soluble nutrient (that is not produced by the body) and an antioxodant that has several health benefits. It’s known to boost immunity, improve iron absorption in the body, and combat high blood pressure. It also reduces the risk for heart and chronic diseases.


B-complex is a group of nutrients that are water-soluble – that is, the body does not store it. Therefore, it’s important to introduce B complex in the body through external means such as food/supplements or intravenously. It gives you a boost and helps keep stress at bay.


Dexpanthenol is an alcohol derivative of pantothenic acid, or vitamin B5, which is useful in the wound healing process and aids lipid and carbohydrate metabolism.

Magnesium Sulfate

Magnesium is a mineral that plays an important role in structural bone development, calcium absorption in the body, and the synthesis of protein and the antioxidant glutathione. Magnesium sulphate is a mineral supplement that treats magnesium deficiency in the body.

Sodium Bicarbonate

Sodium bicarbonate is known to reduce acid in the stomahc and thus treat heartburn. It also has health benefits for the kidney and digestive system.
