When We Need Extra Vitamin C
Humans are one of the few animals unable to convert glucose into Vitamin C in our bodies. A healthy diet and lifestyle may be enough to maintain general wellbeing.
However, most animals can also significantly increase their levels of Vitamin C production when exposed to extra stresses such as infection, illness or injury. We cannot.
The human digestive system limits how much Vitamin C we can absorb orally. However, putting higher doses directly into the bloodstream will reach the body’s cells in greater amounts.
Administered with a standard clinical IV drip, each infusion takes an hour or two depending on your dosage. We may monitor the levels of Vitamin C in your blood and adjust the dosage accordingly as your treatment programme progresses.
