The functional medicine providers at Meeting Point Health treat a wide variety of chronic or complex health conditions with several cutting-edge holistic treatment modalities that are offered in-office. One of the most powerful and efficient forms of treatment at Meeting Point Health is intravenous therapy, commonly called IV therapy, which delivers a customized blend of key nutrients, antioxidants, and hydration, directly into your body.
High-dose vitamin C IV treatment is associated with several health benefits, due to the various roles vitamin C plays in maintaining cellular health. Some potential benefits include boosting the immune system, reducing inflammation, anemia, and helping aid in the treatment of cancer.
High-dose Vitamin C IV hydration therapy is an excellent form of therapy to strengthen your immune system’s ability to fight infections and protect against disease.
High-Dose vitamin C infusion therapy delivers a potent dose of vitamin C (25-100g) directly into the bloodstream through an IV drip. Vitamin C is an essential nutrient and is important for several bodily functions.
Vitamin C is also known as ascorbic acid and is a vital component for the growth, development, and repair of all tissues found within the body. Vitamin C is essential in that it is acquired from different fruits and vegetables in our diet and oral supplements, and not naturally produced in the human body. When vitamin C is ingested as a supplement, the body may only absorb as little as 10-20% of the oral dose consumed.
High-dose vitamin C IV therapy delivers a large amount of vitamin C directly into the body through the circulatory system. This method of treatment provides 100% bioavailable vitamin C that is easily absorbed and utilized for vital functions throughout the body.
Receiving high doses of vitamin C can help strengthen the immune system and improve the ability to fight infection and disease. At doses above 25 grams, Vitamin C is oxidative, meaning that it can upregulate your immune system with a controlled amount of inflammation that induces the body’s own self-healing cascade and help fight off infection.
Vitamin C, at doses up to 25 grams has antioxidant properties and protects cells from free radical damage. Free radicals are molecules that are produced from the breakdown of food, environmental toxins, tobacco smoke, and various forms of radiation, including ultraviolet rays from sunlight and those found in X-ray diagnostic testing.
As an antioxidant, Vitamin C helps reduce inflammatory processes within the body. IV therapies are recommended before and after undergoing surgery or an invasive medical procedure, improving recovery.
Treatment with high dose Vitamin C IV therapy has shown to be beneficial in the treatment of anemia, by improving the efficacy of oral iron supplementation.
Vitamin C also plays an important role in the production of energy in the body and high-dose IV fluids can help improve energy levels and mental clarity in those who experience chronic fatigue symptoms.
Some research studies have suggested that high dose Vitamin C therapy may be beneficial for cancer patients when added to a traditional treatment regimen. Simultaneous use of high dose Vitamin C therapy may improve the effectiveness of chemotherapy and radiation treatment, as well as improve the side effects caused by the cancer treatment.
When used in combination with other standard treatment modalities, high-dose vitamin C IV treatments may be beneficial when used in the treatment of inflammatory illnesses, such as
