1. What are the benefits of Vitamin C?
Vitamin C helps keep the lungs from being damaged when our cells release cytokines—small proteins, which trigger inflammation. Cytokines are the chemical messengers that aid in regulating the body’s immunity and its response to infections.
Acting as an antioxidant, vitamin C neutralizes free radicals, which can damage cells, tissues, even entire organs. Free radicals are naturally produced in the body through normal metabolism, but can also be caused by environmental factors, including air pollution and radiation.
Vitamin C also activates the enzymes that produce hormones and collagen (a tough protein found in skin and connective tissues). These hormones help our cardiovascular system handle infections, while collagen makes our skin more resistant to injuries.
Likewise, vitamin C protects vital organs from pathogens, according to cell culture and preclinical studies. When the body is attacked by pathogens, vitamin C acts like a drill sergeant—marching off our immune cells to the “infection battleground” to bolster defense against free radicals.
2. What is the purpose of Vitamin C Injections?
Generally, people take vitamin C supplements to maintain good health. Our body can’t make vitamin C on its own, so we need to eat foods that are rich in vitamins, like fruits and vegetables, to meet our daily requirements for this particular nutrient.
However, vitamin C is water-soluble and cannot be stored efficiently in our system because it’s expelled by the body when we urinate. This is where foods fortified with vitamin C and vitamin C supplements come in.
Some people have a natural vitamin C deficiency or are unable to properly absorb this nutrient. Others develop such deficiencies due to poor eating habits, smoking, and other environmental factors. They are the people who’ll get the most benefit from vitamin C injections.
The US FDA has also approved vitamin C injections to help trauma or burn patients recover faster. In Australia, vitamin C drips are used to make the body more resistant to common viruses, especially in those who travel frequently or regularly come in contact with many people.
3. Is there such a thing as Vitamin C overdose?
Yes! Exceeding the daily requirement for vitamin C could lead to diarrhea, nausea, and even stomach pain in some people. Others experience pain and swelling from vitamin C injections, mostly in the area where it’s been injected.
It’s not uncommon to experience discomfort in the digestive system when you’ve had too much vitamin C. Some patients report instances where they felt symptoms similar to acid reflux from excessive intakes of this nutrient.
Note too that vitamin C enhances the body’s iron absorption capability. Individuals who suffer from hemochromatosis—a condition where the body overloads with iron—are advised against taking supplemental vitamin C.
People who have kidney stone problems should also consult with their doctors first before taking supplemental doses to avoid complicating their condition. In fact, it’s always smart to check with a medical professional to find out how your body will react to supplemental doses of vitamin C.
4. Where can you get safe Vitamin C injections?
When considering vitamin C injection or high-dose IV vitamin C treatments, go to a clinic or a licensed medical/health facility. We can’t stress this enough: you need to consult with a doctor first and foremost to ensure your safety.
Remember, these are supplemental doses that, if improperly administered, could have side effects. While there’s generally no harm in eating foods that are rich in vitamin C, taking it in supplement form may have unexpected results.
Certified medical practitioners are in a position to address your concerns and help you ask the right questions—whether you need it or not; what’s the right dose for you; how many times should you have the treatment; and, most importantly, how your system will react to it based on your condition.
As a general rule, don’t just take IV vitamin C or supplements if you’re taking other medications or undergoing treatment for other diseases. With the medical and pharmaceutical sectors now scrambling for solutions to the global health crisis, it’s easy to get caught up in the hype, so please make sure you’re getting reliable information from healthcare professionals.
