Your body requires an adequate supply of vitamins in order to function normally. Vitamins can only be obtained through diet or supplementation as the body does not produce these essential nutrients. Vitamin C is a water soluble vitamin that is essential for many of the body’s processes.
Also known as L-ascorbic acid, this vitamin supports various functions in the body:

Boosts the immune system

Vitamin C is essential for fighting off disease. It boosts the immune system and can be of benefit in lowering the risks of acute respiratory infection and other infections.

Supports cell repair and collagen production

Vitamin C is a cofactor for the enzymes that promote the production of collagen. It is also believed to play a role in the repair of cell DNA and thus the repair of damaged cells. These functions of Vitamin C help to boost skin health and reverse some of the effects of aging and exposure to harsh environmental factors. Vitamin C also promotes faster healing of wounds and can improve your physical condition by boosting collagen production throughout the body.

Antioxidant activity

Vitamin C is a strong antioxidant. It protects the body’s cells from the damage of free radicals that may occur in the body as a result of exposure to cigarette smoke, ultraviolet rays from the sun, or even air pollution. Oxidative stress from the accumulation of free radicals in the body has been linked to the development of cancer, heart disease, problems with the immune system, and many other health conditions.

Enhances absorption of iron

Iron is essential for the transportation of oxygen in the body. Vegans and vegetarians are prone to iron deficiencies because of their diet. Vitamin C can help boost heme-iron absorption. Heme-iron is the type of iron that occurs in plant-based foods.

Why Vitamin C Therapy is Preferred 

Many people are deficient in vitamin C because of poor diets. Many foods today are also lacking in essential nutrients, making it harder to obtain the nutrients our bodies need through diet. Vitamin C therapy is proving to be the preferred choice for supplementation over taking vitamin C pills for various reasons. 

  • A high oral dose of Vitamin C can result in side effects such as abdominal cramps, diarrhea, and nausea 
  • Only a small percentage of vitamin C is absorbed when taken orally 
  • The maximum oral dose for vitamin C is 220 micromol/L while that of Vitamin C IV therapy Is 26,000 micromol/L
