Vitamin C infusions

Vitamin C ( also called L-ascorbic acid or ascorbate ) is a nutrient that humans must get from food or dietary supplements since it cannot be made in the body. Vitamin C is an antioxidant and helps prevent oxidative stress. It also works with enzymes to play a key role in making collagen, the scaffold for bone and gums.

When taken by intravenous (IV) infusion, vitamin C can reach much higher levels in the blood than when it is taken by mouth. 

A severe deficiency (lack) of vitamin C in the diet causes scurvy, a disease with symptoms of extreme weakness, lethargy, easy bruising, and bleeding. The lack of vitamin C in patients with scurvy makes collagen thinner in texture; when vitamin C is given, collagen becomes thicker again.

Glutathione

Glutathione is a powerful antioxidant produced in cells. 

Glutathione reduces free radicals, oxidative stress and help detox from toxins and heavy metals.

Its levels in the body may be reduced by a number of factors, including poor nutrition, environmental toxins, and stress and decline with age. In addition to being produced naturally by the body, glutathione can be given intravenously, topically, or as an inhalant. It’s also available as an oral supplement in capsule and liquid form. However, oral ingestion of glutathione may not be as effective trusted source as intravenous delivery for some conditions.
