An IV of Vitamin C can raise the blood levels 50 – 100 times higher than what a person can do taking it orally. Because of this, a person doesn’t develop diarrhea, and at these higher blood levels, IV vitamin C can exert effects similar to pharmaceutical drugs such as antivirals (e.g., influenza drugs), antihistamines (e.g., Benadryl or Claritin), or smooth muscle relaxants (e.g., asthma and angina drugs).
The body does not make Vitamin C and what you ingest from foods such as oranges and lemons is not enough. Only 18% of Vitamin C is absorbed by our bodies, but when delivered by IV, Vitamin C is 100% bioavailable (National Institutes of Health, 2016).
High Dose Vitamin C is needed for:
- Collagen production (skin, blood vessels, ligaments, and bones)
- Energy production (adrenalin and carnitine synthesis)
- Immune System Support
- Antioxidant Properties
