What is High Dose Vitamin C?
Vitamin C (aka. L-ascorbic acid or ascorbate) is a key nutrient that humans must ingest from food or any other dietary supplements. Vitamin C cannot be made in the body. When the body does not get enough Vitamin C, many of the key processes in the body begin to fail and the development of scurvy, lethargy and blood thinning occur.
High Dose Vitamin C therapy is the infusion of a ‘large load’ of Vitamin C directly into the bloodstream to kick-start the physiological processes that prevent the conditions named above from occurring. Vitamin C is an antioxidant that prevents high levels of oxidative stress, one of the major causes for illness and disease. Free radicals (oxidative stress) jump around the body destroying DNA, thus causing mistakes when our cells replicate. What happens after DNA is damaged inside of a cell and the immune system is unable to detect the cell with damaged DNA?
Oxidative stress occurs as a result of psychological, physical and environmental stress. It is also a natural process that occurs in our body when our mitochondria creates ATP from oxygen and water. The mitochondria is the ‘powerhouse’ of the cell and has shown to be Key to the activation of the immune system in response to foreign pathogens.

Can I drink alcohol the day before and then have a High Dose Vitamin C drip?
If you are undergoing a Vitamin C drip greater than 5 grams we strongly advise against ingesting alcohol the day before or the day of your treatment. Any substance that dehydrates you will put extra stress on your system exacerbating the possible side effects of this treatment and diminishing the treatment effectiveness overall.
In fact, you will receive an email upon booking that strongly advises coming VERY hydrated to your appointment. Along with having eaten a meal at least 1.5 hours before your treatment time.
Is there a difference between natural and synthetic ascorbic acid?
They are exactly the same.
Current science shows that whether you ingest Vitamin C supplements or eat an orange, the body takes in the vitamin the exact same way.
