About this IV Therapy
Vitamin C, also known as ascorbic acid is a water-soluble vitamin. Unlike most mammals and other animals, humans do not have the ability to make their own Vitamin C. Therefore, we must obtain Vitamin C through our diet. Vitamin C is required for the synthesis of collagen, an important structural component of blood vessels, tendons, ligaments, and bone. Vitamin C also plays an important role in the synthesis of Neurotransmitters, which are critical for brain function.
In addition, Vitamin C is involved in the process of transporting fat into cellular organelle called mitochondria, where the fat is converted to energy. Vitamin C is also a highly effective antioxidant and in small amounts can effectively protect important cells from free radical damage.
The National Cancer Institute states that high-dose Vitamin C IV therapy has been studies as a treatment for patients with cancer since the 1970s and that laboratory sturdies have shown that high doses of Vitamin C may slow the growth and spread of prostate, pancreatic, liver, colon, and other types of cancer cells. Some human studies of high dose IV Vitamin C in patients with cancer have shown improved quality of life, as well as improvements in physical, mental, and emotional functions, symptoms of fatigue, nausea and vomiting, pain, and appetite loss.”—My Practice Connect®
High dose Vitamin C given intravenously in successive daily dosing has also been shown to help speed up recovery from mononucleosis and to treat the extreme fatigue and malaise that can occur for months following the acute infection with the Epstein Barr virus.
