Vitamin C is a powerful oxidant (free radical scavenger). Intravenous vitamin C is given by a drip into a vein in the arm. It is possible to give much higher doses of Vitamin C intravenously than it is by mouth, thus achieving very high levels in the bloodstream.
Intravenous vitamin C is an extremely safe form of treatment and very rarely has any side-effects. It is much safer than most drugs made by pharmaceutical companies.
When given intravenously, IV vitamin C is often combined with other important nutrients such as magnesium, B vitamins, glutathione and lipoic acid.
Although considered by the medical community to be an unconventional treatment, Intravenous Vitamin C has been given in high doses to many thousands of people in many countries over the last forty years. Clinical experience has shown that IV vitamin C can be useful in the following situations
- the treatment of chronic fatigue
- the treatment of viral infections such as influenza, the common cold, glandular fever and shingles
- the treatment of bacterial infections such as cellulitis (a common skin infection)
- the treatment of burns and stings
- for people who are feeling “run-down” because they are working long hours or doing a lot of travelling, and who would like an “energy boost”
- to boost the immune system in people who are suffering from frequent infections, particularly viral upper respiratory infections.
When used to treat influenza or a cold, IV vitamin C is most effective if given in the first twenty-four hours, as soon as symptoms first appear.
Some doctors claim that high doses of vitamin C cause kidney stones, but this is not true. Intravenous vitamin Cdoes not cause kidney stones. High doses of vitamin C should not, however, be given to people with poor kidney function.
