IV Therapy

High Dose Vitamin C Therapy

High Dose Vitamin C Therapy

Vitamin C has a reputation in the supportive care of cancer patients. When the dose is high, vitamin C functions as a pro-oxidant. When it enters cells, it forms hydrogen peroxide. Hydrogen peroxide is highly reactive and creates oxidative stress on cells. But normal cells in your body are rich in antioxidant enzymes and will not be affected by this hydrogen peroxide. But, for tumor cells, this is not the case. These cells lack antioxidant enzymes and hydrogen peroxide will damage or kill these harmful cells.

The high dose vitamin C intravenous therapy is also different from the oral administration of ascorbic acid. Because this IV treatment is directly administered to your bloodstream, the absorption rate is high. In addition to vitamin C, other vitamins, minerals, and amino acid IV infusions can also be used to promote recovery and revitalize your immune system before and after surgery.

If you choose to opt for this high dose vitamin C therapy, you need to take a special blood test before the treatment. The doses of vitamin C and the frequency of treatments will be adjusted according to the results of the blood tests to suit your individual requirements. You can request this blood test from your family doctor or at our clinic.
