Vitamin C

Vitamin C, also known as ascorbic acid, is a water-soluble vitamin. Unlike most mammals and other animals, humans do not have the ability to make their own vitamin C. Therefore, we must obtain vitamin C through our diet. Vitamin C is required for the synthesis of collagen, an important structural component of blood vessels, tendons, ligaments, and bone. Vitamin C also plays an important role in the synthesis of Neurotransmitters, which are critical for brain function. In addition, vitamin C is involved in the process of transporting fat into cellular organelles called mitochondria, where the fat is converted to energy. Vitamin C is also a highly effective antioxidant and in small amounts can effectively protect important cells from free radical damage.

Calcium Gluconate

Calcium is a mineral supplement that plays a role in many of your body’s essential functions. Your body does not produce calcium and depends on your diet intake and supplements to get its supply. Lack of calcium can lead to health problems such as osteoporosis. Your body needs calcium to help circulate blood, move muscles, and release hormones. Calcium also helps carry messages from your brain to other parts of your body.

Magnesium Chloride

Magnesium plays an important role in many of the body’s enzymatic reactions and plays an important role in neurochemical transmission and muscle contraction and relaxation and therefore has been used successfully for seizures and other muscle related problems. Magnesium acts on the vascular system to produce vasodilation – the relaxation of blood vessel walls increasing blood flow, which can help with lowering blood pressure and also preventing and treating migraine headaches.

Precautions

People may experience a feeling of warmth or mild discomfort when receiving an IV. Rare complications that can occur during intravenous therapies include phlebitis (inflammation of the vein) and fluid infiltration (leaking of fluid into the surrounding tissues). Before starting high dose Vitamin C IV’s, your doctor will need to check for anemia as well as kidney function by ordering some necessary lab tests. These IV’s are given 2-3 days apart. Vitamin C may decrease the levels of calcium, chloride, and potassium and as a consequence, some patients may experience shakiness or aches. This is often reduced or eliminated by adding these ingredients to the IV. Vitamin C IV’s may be dehydrating and can cause a temporary lowering of blood sugar, so proper hydration and nourishment are essential.
