Vitamin C

Vitamin C

Deprived of vitamin C, your body falls apart at the very root. In extreme cases you end up with a condition called scurvy that involves bleeding, hair and tooth loss, joint pain and swelling, and eventually death. Fortunately, even small amounts of vitamin C from foods like oranges and lemons prevents this condition. Unfortunately, food and oral supplements usually aren’t enough to achieve optimal health. You see, only about 18% of the vitamin C we consume is absorbed by our bodies. However, when it’s delivered by IV, vitamin C is 100% bioavailable. That means you can support your adrenal glands, maintain energy levels, improve and protect your skin, strengthen tendons and bones, boost you immune system and fight chemotherapy / radiation side effects with the power of high dose vitamin C. High dose vitamin C is especially useful any time you are under greater than usual amounts of stress, feeling excessive fatigue, when your immune system needs bolstering to fight acute or chronic viral and bacterial infections, when your skin needs to be restored to glowing conditions such as after sun damage or surgery and to help improve the side effects of chemotherapy and radiation therapy like fatigue, nausea and vomiting. If you live in Tarpon Springs and thinking about Vitamin C, Dr Nyree Abdool is here for you.

Benefits of
Vitamin C

Many people take vitamin C for general health or to boost their immune system. It’s also taken to treat vitamin C deficiency. Vitamin C deficiency can lead to scurvy. Characteristic symptoms of vitamin C deficiency include: swollen and bleeding gums, fatigue, poor wound healing, joint pain, loose teeth, colored spots on the skin

In some cases, signs of scurvy can occur within a month of consuming less than 10 milligrams (mg) per day of vitamin C. Today, scurvy is rare in developed countries. It’s most likely to occur in people who: smoke, consume a limited variety of food, have nutrient absorption problems

Vitamin C injections are approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for treating vitamin C deficiency. They’re also approved for helping to treat serious wounds from trauma or burns. However, vitamin C injections are typically only used when vitamin C levels need to be increased quickly or when oral supplements can’t be taken due to poor absorption or other reasons. Ready to Try Botox or have a question?
