Vitamin C Infusion
Vitamin C has a preventative, activational, stabilising, and regenerative effect in the body. In order to achieve a therapeutic or preventative effect, in many situations it is necessary to have a significantly higher dose of vitamin C than the body is able to absorb via the gastrointestinal tract. With a vitamin C infusion, vitamin C concentrations can be achieved in the tissue and in cells which would not be possible via oral administration.Schedule an appointment
The effects of Vitamin C
Vitamin C has a preventative effect as a powerful radical “scavenger” for a wide range of diseases such as arteriosclerosis, rheumatism, cancer, Alzheimer’s, and Parkinson’s.
Vitamin C activates the body’s own immune defences (chemotaxis and phagocytosis) and stimulates the immune system (immunoglobulin synthesis, complement system, interferon production).
Vitamin C stabilises the interior milieu, promotes internal balance and a balanced psyche, a good night’s sleep, and the formation and functional maintenance of connective tissue and bones (e.g. collagen formation).
Vitamin C regenerates other antioxidants in the body (vitamin E, glutathione), accelerates wound healing, and supports detoxification reactions (CYP 450).
