According to the National Cancer Institute, “when given by intravenous (IV) infusion, vitamin C can reach higher levels in the blood than when it is taken by mouth.” IV vitamin C therapy allows vitamin C to enter the bloodstream directly through the veins.
These unprecedented times are very challenging to our immune systems for many reasons, one of which is chronic stress. I.V vitamins are an effective way to bypass the gut and malabsorption issues that many people face, and go directly into the bloodstream for utilization of the cells. Oxidative therapies are a great way to build immunity to bacterial and viral infections
Vitamin C is an essential vitamin, meaning your body can’t produce it. Yet, it has many roles and has been linked to impressive health benefits. Vitamin C, is a nutrient found in foods like oranges, grapefruit, papaya, peppers, and kale. Vitamin C exists in other foods we eat, such as strawberries, kiwi fruit bell peppers, and broccoli. While it’s commonly advised to get your vitamin C intake from foods, many people turn to supplements to meet their needs. High-dose vitamin C IV treatments enhance the benefits that the nutrient offers.
