Vitamin C is most commonly associated with recovering from a cold, and a high dose intravenous administration of this vitamin can help with a wide range of conditions and health goals. Vitamin C IV drips in Vit&Drip Center provide you with the benefits of this antioxidant in Puerto Banus, Marbella.
What is Vitamin C and Why do We Need It?
L-ascorbic acid, known as Vitamin C, is an antioxidant vitamin that your body does not naturally produced. This means you need to get Vitamin C from food, drink, or dietary supplements.
As an antioxidant, Vitamin C helps prevent the damage caused by free radicals that lead to cellular and DNA damage. Vitamin C also plays an important part in the production of collagen, which is a type of connective tissue that assists with wound healing. Vitamin C also has a role in metabolizing proteins to convert food into energy.
Without Vitamin C, your body cannot properly synthesize collagen, metabolize proteins, or perform various other important functions throughout your body.
When you do not get enough Vitamin C, you can develop a deficiency condition called scurvy. Scurvy can lead to anemia, debility, exhaustion, spontaneous bleeding, pain in the limbs, and especially the legs, swelling in some parts of the body, and sometimes ulceration of the gums and loss of teeth. An inadequacy or deficiency of Vitamin C occurs when your intake is below the recommended 10mg/day. A mild Vitamin C deficiency may cause fatigue, weakness, nosebleeds, and swollen or bleeding gums.
Most people can get a sufficient amount of vitamin C through their diet or supplementation. However, individuals with malabsorption issues, smokers, or people who do not eat a variety of fruits and vegetables may have a Vitamin C inadequacy.
What are the Benefits of High Dose Vitamin C IV Therapy?
You’ve probably heard the recommendation to increase your Vitamin C intake to prevent a cold or recover from illness faster. This is because when sick, your body produces excess free radicals – molecules that cause cellular damage. A antioxidant such as Vitamin C can help your body get rid of free radicals faster. Antioxidants pair themselves with free radicals, stopping the damage, and finally helping your body get rid of them.
Why should I choose intravenous treatment instead of oral supplements?
Our absorption of oral supplements is dependent on a number of factors, and oral supplements need to first be processed by the digestive system before they reach the cells. This means that the bioavailability (the amount of nutrients that your body can actually use) of oral supplements is quite low.
IV therapy, on the other hand, is administered directly into your bloodstream. This process allows almost a 100% absorption, and your cells have immediate access to the benefits of Vitamin C.
In addition to these benefits, IV therapy contains a hydrating saline solution that helps flush out the toxins and free radicals that contribute to cellular damage.
Whether regular or high dose, Vitamin C IV therapy is generally well tolerated, meaning there are few, if any, side effects.
Vitamin C Intravenous (IV) Therapy can:
· Help you reduce your risk of getting a cold or the flu
· Help your body produce collagen to improve wound healing
· Improve your body’s ability to absorb iron
· Support cardiovascular health
What is the Difference Between Regular and High Dose Vitamin C?
The upper tolerability level of Vitamin C supplements varies by age but is generally 2000mg/day for adults. High dose Vitamin C is most often used as an adjunctive therapy to help treat cancer, but it has also been studied as a treatment for the common cold. Vit&Drip Center offers high dose vitamin C as part of our IV Therapy treatments, or as a Vitamin C Booster with available doses of 6g, 10g and 20g.
