High-Dose Vitamin C (HDVC)
Vitamin C, also known as ascorbic acid, is a key nutrient that cannot be made in the body. Our supply of Vitamin C must come from diet or dietary supplements. When the body does not get enough Vitamin C many of the key processes in the body begin to fail and the body becomes unable to handle pro-oxidants and daily stress.
Vitamin C directly boosts the immune system as well is a potent antioxidant that can be absorbed through an IV unlike oral doses.
High dose vitamin C IVs are use in collaborative cancer care, anti-aging, and to help restore and balance the immune system.
There is evidence to suggest that when high dose vitamin C is combined with therapies, such as chemotherapy and radiation therapies, it can boost the effectiveness of these treatments. In addition, high doses of Vitamin C therapy also significantly reduce fatigue, nausea, pain, and appetite loss associated with chemotherapy and radiation.
High dosages of vitamin C can also benefit the immune system by fight off bacterial and fungal infections, such as colds, the flu and other illnesses.
