What is Vitamin C?

Found in fruits and vegetables, Vitamin C is essential for good health, body function and overall well-being. Vitamin C helps to form and maintain strong bones, healthy skin and blood vessels. Without vitamin C, there are a range of symptoms that can limit your body’s functionality.

Learn more about Vitamin C

Vitamin C is an important nutrient for normal body function. It is involved in the production of anti-stress hormones, reducing inflammation, activating immune cells, and wound healing. The body does not make its own vitamin C, hence it must be obtained through diet or supplementation.

  • Healthy production of anti-stress hormones
  • Reduces inflammation
  • Improves immune function including wound healing cells

  • Helps to maintain healthy tendons, ligaments, skin, cornea, cartilage, bones, blood vessels and gut health
  • Improves cardiovascular health by potentially widening blood vessels

Why do we add Vitamin C to our IV drips?

Vitamin C is an important nutrient for normal body function. It is involved in the production of anti-stress hormones, reducing inflammation, activating immune cells, and wound healing. The body does not make its own vitamin C, hence it must be obtained through diet or supplementation.

IV drip therapy with vitamin C allows high amounts to be delivered straight into the body. It also functions as an anti-oxidant, and can assist with the absorption of iron.

Alive IV Clinics provide you with the highest quality vitamins to support your needs. Because not all diets and lifestyles are perfect. Because vitamin C is so essential for your body, if you’re noticing any symptoms of a deficiency (see the section below), then you should contact us.

IV drip therapy is far more successful than oral supplements. The effectiveness of oral supplements are limited to your digestive systems ability to absorb all the nutrients. However, IV drip therapy delivers high quality water soluble vitamins directly into your blood stream. This allows for far greater absorption levels when compared to oral supplements.

Vitamin C Deficiency and Symptoms

A deficiency in Vitamin C can lead to a range of symptoms including:

  • Scurvy – characterised by swollen and bleeding gums and skin wounds re-opening
  • Loss of appetite
  • Fatigue and Muscle Weakness
  • Irritability and swelling
  • Anemia – lacking enough healthy red blood cells to carry an adequate amount of oxygen to your body’s tissues causing you to feel tired or weak. Can be mild to severe, temporary or long-term
  • A weaker immune system – leaving you vulnerable to illness
  • Lethargy
