High-Dose IV Vitamin C Therapy

Questions about High-Dose IV Vitamin C?

We want to help educate people on the benefits of the high-dose IV vitamin C therapy we offer at Thrive Wellness.
High-dose intravenous (IV) vitamin C therapy involves administering vitamin C at doses much higher than the recommended daily allowance (RDA) through an IV infusion. While the use of high-dose IV vitamin C remains somewhat controversial and is not universally accepted as a standard medical treatment, numerous studies suggest potential benefits in certain conditions.
These benefits are have not been seen with high oral doses of vitamin C. Here are some of the potential benefits of high-dose IV vitamin C:
  • Antioxidant Effects: Vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant that helps neutralize free radicals, which are reactive molecules that can damage cells and contribute to aging and disease. High-dose IV vitamin C may enhance antioxidant activity and protect cells from oxidative stress and may also reduce heavy metal toxicity by reducing free radicals.
  • Immune Support: Vitamin C plays a crucial role in supporting the immune system, including promoting the production of white blood cells and enhancing their function. High-dose IV vitamin C may boost immune function and help the body fight off infections more effectively.
  • Anti-Inflammatory Properties: Vitamin C has anti-inflammatory properties that may help reduce inflammation in the body. High-dose IV vitamin C has been studied as a potential adjunctive treatment for conditions associated with inflammation, such as autoimmune diseases and chronic inflammatory conditions.
  • Cancer Support: Some studies have investigated the use of high-dose IV vitamin C as an adjunctive therapy for cancer treatment. A growing number of preclinical studies are showing how high-dose vitamin C might benefit cancer patients. Some studies suggest that high-dose IV vitamin C may help enhance the effectiveness of certain cancer treatments, reduce side effects, and improve quality of life in cancer patients.
  • Collagen Synthesis and Wound Healing: Vitamin C is essential for collagen synthesis, a process that is crucial for wound healing and tissue repair. High-dose IV vitamin C may promote faster healing of wounds and injuries, particularly in individuals with impaired wound healing.
  • Neuroprotective Effects: Some research suggests that high-dose IV vitamin C may have neuroprotective effects and could potentially help prevent or mitigate neurological disorders such as Alzheimer’s disease and Parkinson’s disease. However, more research is needed to confirm these effects.
  • Cardiovascular Health: Vitamin C has been associated with cardiovascular health benefits, including improving blood vessel function, reducing blood pressure, and lowering the risk of cardiovascular disease. High-dose IV vitamin C may provide additional cardiovascular support, although more research is needed in this area.
It’s essential to note that while high-dose IV vitamin C may offer potential benefits in certain situations, it is not without risks. A blood test needs to be done to test for a G6PD deficiency which is a rare genetic disorder that can be affected by high-dose vitamin C. Kidney stones are also a potential side effect. Additionally, high-dose IV vitamin C should only be administered under the supervision of a qualified healthcare provider.
