IV Vitamin C
Intravenous Ascorbic Acid (also known as vitamin C or L-ascorbic acid), is a type of therapy that delivers soluble ascorbic acid directly into the bloodstream, either administered via injection or infusion.
Vitamin C is an essential component of your health and wellness. Unfortunately, your body can’t produce Vitamin C on its own. Foods like oranges, lemons, berries, and red bell peppers are rich in Vitamin C and should be a part of your diet.
Unfortunately, only a small percentage of consumed Vitamin C can be absorbed by our bodies. High doses of Vitamin C can cause gastrointestinal (GI) discomfort. The best way to combat this issue and maximize the benefits of Vitamin C is through Vitamin C IV Therapy.
Research shows that Vitamin C IV Therapy is highly beneficial for your body. Vitamin C IV Therapy allows you to bypass your GI tract and take full advantage of high doses of Vitamin C.
IV Vitamin C can support
- Collagen production
- Anti-Cancer properties (in conjunction with traditional chemotherapy treatment)
- Reducing toxicity levels in your body
- Fighting off cancer cells
- Antihistamine effects
- Immune support
What is Glutathione?
Glutathione is a peptide that is naturally produced and found in every cell of the human body, including immune cells. Made up of three essential amino acids (cysteine, glutamate, and glycine), it is often referred to as the master detoxifier for its incredible ability to promote skin health, body function, overall mood, and well-being.
Glutathione is an extremely powerful antioxidant that is key to almost all body functions, including:
- Improving immune function and helping to fight disease
- Lightening and brightening skin by erasing hyperpigmentation and inhibiting melanin production in cells
- Reducing inflammation
- Helping your body break down and purge fat
- Keeping your body from becoming resistant to drugs
- Promoting high energy and mental clarity
- Providing anti-aging properties
- Improving the quality of sleep and combating stress from sleep apnea
- Detoxifying and fighting oxidative stress
What is most exciting is the link between Parkinson’s Disease and Glutathione treatment?
Many diseases are linked to glutathione deficiencies, including neurodegenerative conditions such as Parkinson’s disease. Parkinson’s is characterised by loss of dopamine in a specific part of the brain called the substantia nigra. Glutathione is significantly depleted in the substantia nigra in the preclinical stages of Parkinson’s disease as the earliest biochemical change. This deficiency causes increased free radicals that further the disease process. Medical trials have shown that intravenous (IV) glutathione supplementation resulted in improvements in rigidity, posture, gait, speech, and hypokinesia (decreased body movement). The dosing range depends on the individual patient, but usually is 2-3 grams of glutathione per infusion for the adjunctive treatment of Parkinson’s disease.
Myers’ Cocktail is a formula of intravenous vitamins and minerals that was pioneered by the late Dr. John Myers, MD. Many of his patients who found relief with these infusions sought continued treatments from Alan R. Gaby, MD a renowned nutritional medicine expert who became one of the major proponents of this treatment.
For certain patients, this treatment can be viewed as a multi-vitamin that is given directly into the bloodstream. If a person has difficulty digesting food or for another reason doesn’t receive full benefit from taking vitamin pills, they may respond well to an IV nutritional regimen.
So, what’s in a Myers Cocktail IV?
