High-dose Vitamin C IV infusion can help boost the immune system, reduce inflammation, and improve overall health. Vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant known for scavenging free radicals and fortifying the immune system by helping the body’s natural defenses fight inflammation. It aids in the absorption of iron and has been shown to improve the quality of life of those with chronic illnesses. High-dose Vitamin C has also been shown to benefit cancer patients.
Vitamin C acts as an antioxidant when administered in low doses (below 15 grams) and provides protection against oxidative stress-induced cellular damage. In high doses (15 grams and higher), Vitamin C becomes a pro-oxidant and can be used as an adjunctive
measure to minimize the effects of cancer treatment.
*Infusion of Vitamin C in high doses (15 grams and higher) is patient-specific and requires additional screening. Patients must present a negative G6PD blood test to rule out G6PD (glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase) deficiency prior to administration. Please call us at 757-974-5828 if you have questions.
