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 bloodstream. This allows for far greater absorption levels when compared to oral supplements.

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

Are vitamin IV drips good for you?

There are numerous reasons for why IV drips may be great for your health and wellbeing. For instance, certain IV drips could help to enhance your immune system. Others are intended to battle exhaustion and stress.

IV drips may be able to improve your health and wellbeing by distributing important vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and amino acids straight into your bloodstream. Consequently, it significantly improves the bioavailability of those nutrients.

This means that your body is far more likely to process nutrients already accessible in your bloodstream than those that have to be absorbed through your digestive system.

Another advantage of vitamin C IV drips is the potential for helping you deal with your hangover! As nutrients are made available for your body to access more quickly, the recovery time can be far superior to merely drinking water and drinks with electrolytes. Let Alive IV Clinics help you feel refreshed and recharged.

Can you take vitamin C intravenously?

Of course! At Alive IV Clinics, we are here to help with your health and wellness. Our 3 main IV drip options all include vitamin C at varying degrees of strength. This may give you and your immune system that boost that it needs.

We understand that it is extremely hard to get all the vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and amino acids that your body needs to stay optimally healthy.

This is why we created our innovative NewCell® IV range. When you are searching for a vitamin C IV drip, look no further than Alive IV Clinics!

How does vitamin C help a cold?

Vitamin C is an important part of keeping a healthy immune system. A study review from 2013 found that taking 200mg of vitamin C per day reduced the length of time that participants felt ill when suffering from the common cold.

However, vitamin C helps with much more than reducing the duration of a cold. This important vitamin keeps your bones healthy, keeps your skin vibrant and reduces inflammation.

It is vital that you absorb enough vitamin C into your body to keep healthy. This is why we make sure to include it in all our IV drips.
