Regular Vitamin C Injections can enhance physical wellbeing and prevent the onset of illness, this is because vitamin C is a natural antioxidant that protects the body against the effects of harmful agents.

Why choose Vitamin C injections?

Vitamin C is required for the biosynthesis of collagen which slows down skin ageing. Collagen is an essential component of connective tissue, which plays a vital role in the elasticity of the skin and wound healing. Also, Vitamin C is a physiological antioxidant that also regenerates other antioxidants within the body, including Vitamin E.

Frequently Asked Questions

The incredible vitamin C, also called ascorbic acid and calcium ascorbate, is one of the daily health supplements recommended for everyday use because it is the most straightforward and accessible immune booster. It is remarkable way to help and enhance the immune system and act as an anti-viral and antioxidant. Sadly, our body does not produce vitamin C, which means that we need to source it from our diet. It is found in citrus fruits and vegetables such as peppers, tomatoes, broccoli, and spinach. Vitamin C can stay in your body for weeks, with Vitamin C levels in the blood controlled by the kidneys, through a process known as ”renal absorption’‘, preventing vitamin C from being lost in the urine.

Vitamin C, or ascorbic acid, is a water-soluble vitamin with important functions in the human body. We need vitamin C for collagen biosynthesis, but also the synthesis of l-carnitine and some neurotransmitters. This micronutrient is also necessary for the metabolism of protein. Additionally, vitamin C functions as an antioxidant.

Antioxidants neutralize free radicals and protect us against oxidative stress and damage they would cause. Free radicals speed up the aging process, may contribute to the development of cancer, cardiovascular disease, and other health problems.

Moreover, we need vitamin C for strong immune system defences. What many people don’t know is that vitamin C improves absorption of nonheme iron, the form of iron present in plant-based sources.

Some of the earliest signs of deficiency include fatigue, red gums, easy bruising and bleeding, joint pain and rough, bumpy skin. As the deficiency progresses, bones may become brittle, nail and hair deformities can develop, wounds may take longer to heal and the immune system suffers.

The signs of a Vitamin C deficiency can vary from person to person, but they may include one or more of the following:

  • Rough, dry, damaged, bumpy skin
  • Unexplained weight gain
  • Easy bruising
  • Fatigue, poor mood
  • Bright red hair follicles
  • Chronic stress and inflammation
  • Fingernails spoon shaped with red lines or spots
  • Pain swelling in joints
  • Tooth loss and bleeding gums
  • Slow wound healing
  • Poor immune system
  • Helps resist allergies by improving the immune system
  • Improves specific health conditions and fights disease and flu like symptoms
  • Helps ease any tiredness and fatigue
  • Increases energy levels when feeling “run down”

The dose is primarily dependent on your needs. For example, if you are getting vitamin C shots for general maintenance and overall health, a daily 200mg dose can be administered for up to seven days. If you are taking it to speed up wound healing, the typical dose is one gram each for seven to 21 days. For there to be continual positive effects from the vitamin C shot, it is recommended to take the prescribed amount at least once every three to four weeks.

You can be injected with vitamin C while taking other vitamin supplements like biotin, B complex vitamins including vitamin B12, and vitamin D without complications. It can also be safely used in combination with facial and body treatments.

Vitamin C Injections should never replace conventional medical treatment for serious health concerns. However, many patients maybe undergoing medical treatments that are highly taxing on the nutrient levels of the body and therefore they are keen to address any deficiencies on their road back to health.

Some examples of allergies or conditions that may interact with Vitamin C injections are:

  • Allergy to Ascorbic acid
  • Kidney or Liver disease
  • Iron metabolism disorder 

Also, there might be some commonly prescribed medications that may interact with Vitamin C, such as:

Aspirin and nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs. It can cause Vitamin C to be lost in the urine whilst the vitamin will cause higher levels of the drugs to stay in the body.

Antipsychotic drug Prolixin (fluphenazine), vitamin C can reduce the concentration of this medication in the bloodstream, decreasing its effectiveness.

When used adequately, vitamin C injections are safe.

Some side effects include:

  • Pain, redness or itching in the site of the injection
  • Mild diarrhoea
  • Swelling sensation in the body

Vitamin C is not considered to be toxic, even in high quantities. The full list of side effects is extremely limited; however, doses of over 2000 mg are not supported as this is above the recommended dosage.

High doses of vitamin C have a few side effects, such as pain at the site of injection and nausea. That being said, you should still stick to the dosages recommended by the healthcare professional or manufacturer of vitamin C injections.
