Mega C – Vitamin C Infusion
For decades vitamin C has been the go to vitamin for immune boosting and skin health, and there is good reason behind this. It is also the most well studied micro nutrient! Studies have shown that receiving vitamin C intravenously may produce levels in the blood many times higher than if taken orally. This method therefor provides a unique advantage over oral supplements, which struggle to be absorbed from the gut.
Vitamin C is an essential vitamin for humans as our bodies are unable to produce it like other animals do so rely on external sources to supply us with the much needed vitamin.
Vitamin C in immune function.
As an antioxidant, vitamin C is a free radical scavenger. It helps protect our cells and tissues by preventing oxidative stress which can lead to chronic degenerative diseases if left untreated. It is well known that vitamin c is critical to proper immune function by helping minimise and fight off stress, inflammation and infections.
Vitamin C in wound healing.
Vitamin c is essential in forming collagen and is needed for growth and repair of tissues in all parts of the body. Collagen is vital for wound healing, repair and maintenance of cartilage, bones and teeth.
A deficiency in vitamin C can lead to dry and splitting hair, inflammation, various skin conditions, anaemia, increased infections and poor wellbeing.
