Vitamin C Infusion therapy

Vitamin C (ascorbate, ascorbic acid) is a major water-soluble antioxidant.

Vitamin C increases extracellular collagen production and is important for proper immune cell functioning (Hoffman, 1985; Cameron, et al., 1979).

Vitamin C also plays key roles in L-carnitine synthesis, cholesterol metabolism, cytochrome P-450 activity, and neurotransmitter synthesis (Geeraert, 2012). 

High-dose vitamin C  may be given by intravenous (IV) infusion (through a vein into the bloodstream) or orally (taken by mouth).

When taken by intravenous infusion, vitamin C can reach much higher levels in the blood than when the same amount is taken in tablets.

When high-dose vitamin C is given by intravenous infusion, peak concentrations  can be attained (Casciari, et al., 2001; Padayatty, et al., 2004) without significant adverse effects to the recipient.

 Intravenous vitamin C (IVC ) may have a variety of possible applications, such as combating infections (Padayatty, et al., 2010), treating rheumatoid arthritis (Mikirova, et al., 2012), it has generated the most interest for its potential use in adjunctive cancer care.

 Intravenous vitamin C (IVC) protocol involves the slow infusion of vitamin C at doses on the order of 0.1 to 1.0 grams ascorbate per kilogram body mass (as per the doctor  recommendation ).
