According to experts, vitamin C is one of the most effective and safest nutrients for the human body. Commonly known as an immune system booster, vitamin C may also contribute to a healthy heart, healthy eyes, and healthy skin. It is also recommended for pregnant women who may be suffering from certain prenatal health conditions. Vitamin C, known also as ascorbic acid, is an antioxidant and is a necessary component for the growth and repair of all tissues in the human body. It is involved with many bodily processes, including but not limited to, the absorption of iron, the creation of collagen, wound repair and healing, and even the maintenance of bones, cartilage, and the teeth.

Studies of vitamin C and its effects on the human body have revealed exciting information for anyone who wants to live a more healthy lifestyle. From strengthening an immune system weakened by stress and reducing the risk of future complications, like pneumonia and lung infections, from the cold and flu, one study has even shown that vitamin C may reduce the risk of stroke by over 40%. In the latter study, which was published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, found that individuals with a higher concentration of vitamin C in the body were 42% less likely to suffer from a stroke than individuals with lower concentrations of vitamin C in the body.
The body typically receives vitamin C from the food and fruits that you eat, but many medical professionals admit that most people don’t consume enough healthy foods high in vitamin C to receive the most benefits from the nutrient. Fortunately, IV Vitamin Therapy Los Angeles offers the perfect solution for people who can’t get enough vitamin C from food alone, and that solution comes in the form of intravenously injected vitamin C.
Using a basic IV drip, vitamin C is injected directly into the bloodstream, bypassing the body’s digestive system. Through direct injection into the bloodstream, the vitamins can remain more potent and undiluted, and the positive effects of the vitamin can be experienced much faster than if consumed orally.
Perhaps the most exciting thing about high dose intravenous vitamin C is its potential therapeutic effects against cancer. While more research is needed, there does exist the very real possibility that vitamin C therapy will be widely used in the treatment of cancer with the addition of conventional treatments. In 2014, it was reported that a high dose vitamin C infusion may help boost the ability of chemotherapy to kill cancer cells. What is even more amazing is the apparent ability of high doses of vitamin C to shield healthy cells from the rigors of chemotherapy and play an important anti-oxidant role.
For those who don’t know, chemotherapy typically kills both healthy and cancerous cells during treatment, but researchers from the University of Kansas have reported that when vitamin C was introduced in combination to chemotherapy, less damage was done on healthy cells and organs while chemotherapy killed cancerous ovarian cells.
In follow up trials, researchers found that patients suffering from ovarian cancer reported fewer incidences of toxic side effects from chemotherapy treatments when higher dosages of vitamin C were intravenously introduced into their bodies while they were undergoing chemotherapy treatments.
IV vitamin C therapy isn’t just recommended for patients suffering from serious medical ailments, it can also help people who are currently healthy from head to toe. As an antioxidant and immune system booster, IV vitamin C therapy can be recommended for just about anybody.
