Benefits of Vitamin C IV Infusion Therapy
Health Benefits of Vitamin C
Vitamin C promotes healthy mitochondria function, helping the adequate synthesis of ATP energy molecule.
It stimulates the immune system to produce interferon, to increase the number of natural killer cells. It optimizes phagocytosis and leukocyte migration, putting immune system in defensive action.
Reduces oxidative damage to p53, this is a gene called guardian of the cell, which defends the development of cancer.
It has an important influence on the body’s defense system to modulate the activity of cells such as leukocytes and macrophages.
Improves wound healing and reduces the symptoms caused by allergic reactions.
It acts in the body as a carrier of oxygen and hydrogen and has antioxidant action against harmful effects of free radicals associated with the development of tumor, cardiovascular and neurological diseases.
Participates actively in liver detoxification processes facilitating the elimination of toxins.
Vitamin C helps in the conversion of amino acid neurotransmitters; therefore exerts an antidepressant action.
Decreases the production of prostaglandin E2 and, therefore it prevents inflammation.
Participates in the synthesis of steroid hormones essential for healthy aging and responsible for metabolism and fat oxidation (lipid) form.
Recycles oxidized vitamin E, avoiding pro-oxidant effect in this condition.
Involved in maintaining the integrity of gums, bones, teeth and blood vessels.
Increases organic iron absorption in foods.
Effectively combat the flu, allergies, asthma, bronchitis and other respiratory problems.
It helps neutralize and eliminate any toxins accumulated in the body.
It has been used in high doses in patients with AIDS.
It is essential to withstand stress, it is the main nutrient for the adrenal glands.
Helps diabetics to control blood sugar levels and protect arteries from damage caused by elevated blood sugar levels (protein glycosylation)
Benefits of Vitamin C Supplementation
Vitamin C is crucial for the role it plays in forming a protein used in skin, tendons, ligaments, and blood vessels, as well as repairing and maintaining bones, cartilage, and teeth. It also has antioxidant properties, which means it helps block damage from free radicals in the body that may be formed after food/tobacco consumption, and play a role in regressing the aging process, as well as building up and contributing to the treatment of cancer, heart disease, and other health conditions. It has been shown that taking vitamin C supplements regularly may shorten the duration of the common cold and allow for milder symptoms. Achieving higher blood levels of vitamin C can provide a wide range of health benefits by protecting against immune system deficiencies, eye health, cardiovascular disease, and cancer.
Vitamin C is one of the first nutrients depleted under stress, smoking, and obesity, so increasing vitamin C levels will help strengthen the weakened immune system in these conditions. Those with higher blood concentrations of vitamin C show a significant 42% lower risk of stroke than those with lower concentrations, and they also show better skin-aging appearance with less wrinkling and dryness. Higher blood vitamin C concentrations also reduce the risk of cancer and cardiovascular disease. It does this by reducing cell proliferation in different types of cell lines such as pancreatic, prostate, colon, mesothelioma, hepatocellular, and neuroblastoma lines. Many lab studies have found that vitamin C causes the death of cancer cells due to a chemical reaction it causes which produces hydrogen peroxide, resulting in cancer cell death. In cancer patients, high-dose vitamin C has also been shown to increase quality of life and reduce cancer-related side effects.
