How Vitamin C IV Therapy Can Support Your Immune System

Also known as ascorbic acid, Vitamin C is an important micronutrient that can help strengthen immunity and support other systems of the body. Although it’s found in many foods and supplements, your body may only absorb a small percentage of the vitamin C you consume. At Balance of Life Clinic in Medina, Ohio, we offer safe, effective  vitamin C IV therapy that helps your body better absorb Vitamin C and other vital antioxidants.

Vitamin C IV Therapy Gives Your Immune System A Power Boost

The immune system includes a complex network of cells, organs, tissues, and proteins that protects you from pathogens such as viruses, bacteria, parasites, fungi, and cancer cells. Decades of research have shown vitamin C to be a critical element in numerous aspects of the immune system, especially immune cell function. It can also fight free radicals, which can decrease inflammation, enhance the health and appearance of your skin, and provide protection from environmental toxins. 

It supports the production of antibodies and has been shown to make bacterial membranes more permeable to certain types of antibiotics. It enhances white blood cell production, which helps protect the body against infection. High doses of vitamin C may also decrease the length of cold symptoms.

The COVID-19 pandemic has led many people to pay more attention to strengthening their immunity and taking steps to protect themselves from illness or infection. A recent research study found that high doses of vitamin C given intravenously may be effective for mitigating cellular injuries due to COVID-19, as its antioxidant properties help de-stress immune systems overwhelmed by respiratory distress.

High Doses Of Vitamin Are Beneficial If Absorbed Effectively

Although eating foods rich in vitamin C and taking supplements are helpful, your body can only absorb so much Vitamin C when taken orally – it’s a water-soluble vitamin that is delivered to the body’s tissues but is not well stored.

When more than 1000 mg of vitamin C are taken orally, studies have shown that absorption decreases to less than 50%. High doses taken orally can also lead to stomach upset and other issues. Vitamin C IV therapy delivers it right to your bloodstream and bypasses the digestive and metabolic system, resulting in a 100% absorption rate. Most IV therapy infusions also include other antioxidants that work to increase vitamin C’s absorption rate and effectiveness.

Other Benefits Of IV Vitamin C Therapy

Although it’s well known that Vitamin C helps strengthen the immune system, it may also provide benefits such as:

  • Hydration
  • Improved energy and mood
  • Enhanced healing
  • Better iron absorption
  • Protection against toxins
  • Seasonal allergy symptom relief
  • Supporting collagen formation and reduces the signs of aging
  • Reducing the physical and mental effects of stress
  • Preventing cataracts and age-related macular degeneration
  • Improving digestive issues

Vitamin C IV therapy can enrich your overall health and help you feel your best. Before starting any new treatment, make sure to talk to your physician and integrative health care practitioner about whether it’s right for you.
