High Dose Vitamin C Infusion

High-dose vitamin C may be given by intravenous (IV) infusion (through a vein into the bloodstream) or orally (taken by mouth).
Vitamin C

When infused by intravenous means, Vitamin C can reach much higher levels in the blood than when the same amount is taken by mouth.

What is Vitamin C?

Vitamin C is an essential vitamin for the human body that activates the immune system and performs many basic functions throughout the body. Also known as ascorbic acid, Vitamin C is sought when people feel sick as a way to encourage quick healing as well as in skincare products to help protect skin at the cellular level from environmental stressors.

Vitamin C can be injected directly into the vein, with our high-dose IV Vitamin C treatment, to enhance the amount of this substance in your body nearly instantaneously.

Benefits of Vitamin C Therapy

High-dose vitamin C IV therapy is used to:

  • Improve your skin texture and make it glow

  • Boost your immune system to fight stress, flu, colds, and low energy

  • Protect cell structures – DNA, protein, and collagen – from oxyradicals and reactive oxygen species (ROS) – antioxidant properties.

 Mounting evidence indicates that vitamin C has the potential to be a potent agent when administered intravenously and in high doses (high-dose IVC).  High Dose Vitamin C is especially useful anytime the body is under greater than usual amount of stress, feeling excessive fatigue, when your immune system needs to go into high gear to fight off any viral or bacterial infection, or when your skin needs to be restored to glowing condition after a summer of sun damage.  

 Moreover, high-dose IVC is powerful as an adjuvant alternative treatment option for many patients, acting synergistically with many standard (chemo-) therapies, as well as a method for decreasing the toxic side-effects of chemotherapy or radiation such as fatigue, nausea or vomiting.

At AustinMD, patient safety comes first. In order to receive high-dose Vitamin C infusion, we always check a few key labs prior to your first treatment to assure your safety and wellbeing.  A G6PD lab is required prior to receiving high dose IV Vitamin C.

IV therapy is a straightforward procedure. Regardless of the type of IV therapy you are receiving, you can expect the process to be pretty uniform. The nurse administering the therapy will talk you through the procedure. Generally, you will be seated somewhere comfortable for the duration of the therapy. The nurse will disinfect the injection site and place a needle directly in a vein. The IV will typically be placed in the arm, but it is possible to be placed elsewhere.
The fluids inside an IV bag depend on the type of therapy you are undergoing. Intravenous solutions can contain saline, vitamins, minerals and medication.
So, what is IV therapy used for? Generally, the main types of IV therapy are Hangover relief, Athletic performance recovery, Immune system support, Cold and flu relief, Pregnancy symptom alleviation and Migraine and headache relief
IV therapy drips amino acids, vitamins, minerals and fluids at a controlled rate. Once you are connected to the IV, which is usually a quick and simple process, the duration of the therapy will depend on why you are undergoing IV therapy. This process can take longer, but will typically require 45 minutes to an hour of your time. Some IV therapies can be done relatively quickly, while others will take longer.
How quickly will you feel the effects of the IV drip? Again, the answer depends on why you are undergoing IV therapy. In some cases, you may feel the effects almost immediately. In other cases, it may take more time. The effects can last for up to a few days after completing the procedure, depending on a number of different factors.
