High Dose Vitamin C (Stage 1, 2 &3)

Vitamin C is a vital nutrient that supports the immune system and has antioxidant properties. It also helps to maintain healthy skin and bones, blood vessels and cartilage. It occurs naturally in foods such as fruits and vegetables, but some people may struggle to include adequate amounts throughout their diet alone.

A high dose IV  drip bypasses the digestive system and infuses vitamin C directly into the bloodstream. Choose from 7.5g up to 22.5g of High Dose Vitamin C for maximum antioxidant and anti-inflammatory effects, alongside major skin benefits.

The Importance of Vitamin C

The high-dose IV drip can be used to support people who are placing extra demands on their body through an intense exercise programme, or who find that they are lacking in energy in their everyday life. The body is unable to store vitamin C because it is water soluble, and therefore we need a daily intake to maintain optimum health levels. 

The best sources include raw, fresh fruit and vegetables such as tomatoes, spinach, oranges, and red and green peppers. However, in reality, it may not always be possible to eat freshly prepared meals every day, and cooked and processed foods can lose a lot of their vitamin content. 

People with a busy lifestyle may choose to take oral supplements, but this is much less effective than a direct vitamin infusion. When we take an oral supplement it is estimated that less than half of the vitamin is successfully absorbed through the digestive system and circulated to the bloodstream where it reaches the body’s cells. 

People who smoke or who are frequently exposed to second-hand smoke may be at increased risk of a vitamin C deficiency, because the chemicals in cigarette smoke place more oxidative stress on the body. Vitamin C supports wound healing and may be beneficial for people who are recovering from surgery or injuries. 

Vitamin C increases the absorption of iron, so it is of a particular benefit to those who are suffering from iron deficiency anaemia. Iron is essential for the healthy function of red blood cells in the body, which supports a robust immune system, consistent energy levels, healthy hair, skin, and nails, and good quality sleep. 

Vitamin C also supports the function of the brain by protecting the neurotransmitters that regulate emotions and aid cognitive function. Therefore it may help to promote a more stable mood, combatting problems such as anxiety and depression, and also reduce the risk of brain fog and cognitive decline.

Vitamin C has powerful antioxidant properties that can neutralise free radicals in the body. These free radicals can cause oxidative stress that leads to cell damage, which can be the first stage in developing cancer or cardiovascular disease. They can also cause the skin to age faster by exacerbating the effects of sun damage. 

Vitamin C also plays a key role in collagen synthesis, which is a protein that is vital for repairing the body’s tissue and maintaining strong and healthy skin, bones, and connective tissues.
