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.

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).

A vitamin C infusion can be administered for the following:

  • Colds
  • Acute and chronic infections, e.g. herpes infections
  • Low immunity
  • Rheumatoid arthritis
  • Chronic bowel diseases
  • Cancer
  • Allergies, asthma, hay fever
  • Cardiovascular diseases
  • Vascular diseases
  • Diabetes
  • Stress (physical, psychological)
  • Neurodegenerative diseases
  • Musculoskeletal pain
  • Smokers and alcohol consumption
  • Taking of medicines and liver diseases
  • Regeneration after an illness and operations
  • Wound healing disorders, injuries

The high-dose vitamin C therapy generally begins with a dose of 7.5 g per infusion, and can then be increased gradually from the 2nd infusion onwards. 

Vitamin C infusions are generally taken well by patients; undesirable side effects are extremely rare.
