Ascorbic Acid (Vitamin C)

Ascorbic acid is necessary for collagen formation (e.g., connective tissue, cartilage, tooth dentin, skin, and bone matrix) and tissue repair. Vitamin C may promote resistance to infection by the activation of leukocytes, production of interferon, and regulation of the inflammatory process. 

Vitamin C may have a role in the regeneration of other biological antioxidants, such as glutathione. Humans cannot synthesize ascorbic acid endogenously, and a lack of dietary intake can lead to scurvy. Vitamin C is most frequently used as a nutritional supplement, although there is typically impaired absorption and gastric disturbance when larger doses are taken orally.

Ascorbic acid has been used for a variety of ailments, including the common cold, gum infections, acne, depression, fertility, and cancer; however, these claims have not been substantiated, and Vitamin C is not considered a treatment for these purposes. Ascorbic acid was approved by the FDA in 1939. New studies are being generated regularly to help guide our recommendations toward your needs.

Common Questions

Vitamin C IV therapy involves administering high doses of vitamin C directly into your bloodstream, bypassing the digestive system for optimal absorption. This method can achieve much higher levels of vitamin C in the blood than oral supplements.

IV vitamin therapy has been extremely popular recently. We offer Vitamin C IV infusion services at our Nashville, Hendersonville, and Franklin/Cool Springs locations. Our experienced medical team can provide the treatment in a comfortable setting tailored to your individual health needs.

Many people can benefit from Vitamin C IV therapy, particularly those needing an immune boost, individuals with poor nutrient absorption, and those seeking to improve skin health and energy levels. It’s also used in support of conventional cancer treatments.

Some clinical trials have suggested that high-dose vitamin C infusion, when used in conjunction with conventional cancer treatments, may improve patient outcomes. Vitamin C is thought to build up in cancer cells, potentially killing them or slowing their growth.

The National Cancer Institute recognizes the use of high-dose vitamin C in cancer treatment. While it is certainly not a standalone cure, it’s often used to help manage symptoms and improve the quality of life for terminal cancer patients. However, individual patient needs, and conditions must always be evaluated by a healthcare professional.

Vitamin C therapy is generally well-tolerated, but as with any treatment, there can be potential side effects. These might include mild discomfort at the IV site, feeling warm during the infusion, and very high doses may affect kidney function. It’s important to discuss potential risks with your healthcare provider.
