IV Vitamin C

Learn More About IV Vitamin C

Vitamin C (ascorbic acid) is needed to build collagen, cartilage, muscle and blood vessels.  Vitamin C is necessary for our immune system to operate fully and facilitate the healing process.  It is also a very powerful antioxidant and protects your cells against the effects of free radicals.  Free radicals are by products of toxins in the environment, smoking, and poor diet.  They may cause cancer, heart disease, and other diseases.  Vitamin C can prevent damages from free radicals and protect your body against disease.  It can also help your body absorb and store iron.

Because we are unable to produce Vitamin C in our body it is essential to eat foods that are high in Vitamin C such as citrus fruits, berries, potatoes, tomatoes, peppers, cabbage, Brussels sprouts, broccoli and spinach.

At the Health and Vitality Center, Dr. Lalezar will obtain a complete history from you before deciding what is the best dosage of IV vitamin C to support your medical condition.

Before starting high dose Vitamin C therapy, G6 PD level is checked.  G6PD is an enzyme necessary to process Vitamin C.  If it’s abnormal patients won’t be able to receive high dose vitamin C because hemolytic anemia may occur.
