Vitamin C Boost sm. $99 / lg. $175 – Orange County, CA
Super Boost for the Immune System and Beautiful Skin.
Vitamin C is well known for strengthening the immune system and guarding against sickness. Did you know that Vitamin C is also important for healthy skin and can give you a quick pick-me-up when you’re feeling a little run down?
Our high-dose Vitamin C IV therapy is formulated to make your skin glow and give your immune system the super boost it needs to fight colds, flu, and low energy and help get you through the week.
Some smoothies, juices and drinks that claim similar benefits just don’t stack up. Our IV Vitamin C treatment provides immediate benefit by allowing your body to completely absorb the nutrients through your bloodstream.
Improves Energy, Mood, Immune System, and More
Vitamin C benefits your immune system, contributes to wound healing, helps your body absorb iron, and assists with forming collagen. It is an antioxidant and protects against toxins like pollution. Research shows that vitamin C may also protect against:
- Heart disease
- Eye disease
- Skin wrinkling
- Prenatal health problems
- Complications from cold and flu, such as pneumonia and lung infections
A quick and easy IV hydration therapy with high-dose vitamin C offers relief from mood changes, stress, and sickness.
Intravenous Vitamin C Treatment in a Private Room
All our IV hydration therapies are administered in a private room in our soothing spa environment. When you take oral vitamin C supplements to stay healthy, your body only absorbs half of the nutrients – and half of the benefit. By sending the vitamin C directly into your bloodstream, we ensure maximum absorption and the best results. You’ll instantly feel healthier, happier, and more energized. Our relaxed spa setting makes the treatment fly by, and you’ll be back to your day in no time.
Frequently Asked Questions on Vitamin C
What does vitamin C do?
Vitamin C benefits more of the body than you’d expect, including your skin, hair, bones, and blood vessels, as well as your energy levels and mood.
While some studies show vitamin C is good for a variety of medical uses (such as improving Alzheimer’s, fertility, arthritis, asthma, diabetes, anemia, depression, and more), further research is needed to determine how effective it is.
How much vitamin C is too much?
Determining how much vitamin C to take can be difficult because different brands of supplements include different amounts and ingredients. Be sure to carefully read product labels and talk to your doctor.
Although vitamin C is water-soluble and your body doesn’t store extra, taking more than the recommended dose may result in diarrhea, nausea and vomiting, heartburn, bloating, headache, insomnia, or kidney stones.

What foods are high in vitamin C?
Vitamin C is found in many fruits and vegetables. Foods rich in vitamin C include:
- Red bell peppers
When your body digests food and vitamin C supplements, only about half of the nutrients are absorbed. For a more complete boost of vitamin C, contact us for an IV treatment.
When is the best time to take vitamin C?
Choosing when to take vitamin C is entirely up to you. Vitamins and supplements affect each person differently, so find the time that works best for you. Many find that taking supplements on an empty stomach can cause nausea, heartburn, or gas. Taking vitamin C with a meal also makes it part of your routine so you’re less likely to forget.
You may find vitamin C to increase your energy levels, so taking your supplement with breakfast or lunch may be better than with supper.
