Vitamin C and Your Skin
Vitamin C is necessary for collagen production and neutralizing free radicals in your skin. Free radicals damage skin, causing wrinkles, discoloration and other signs of aging.
Vitamin C IV therapy has immediate beneficial effects for your skin. It limits UV damage caused by sun exposure and increases collagen protein synthesis so damaged skin is repaired more quickly.
Worried about dry skin? Studies have shown vitamin C supplements can help repair and prevent both dry skin and dull complexions.

Can Vitamin C Help Acne?
Vitamin C can help acne sufferers by toning down redness and promoting healing.
Vitamin C reduces redness by calming the immune system which releases inflammatory chemicals as a response to acne bacteria. Vitamin C also strengthens capillaries delivering oxygen and nutrients to the basal layer of skin, so less redness shows through.
Vitamin C promotes the production of collagen and elastin, necessary for healing existing acne scars and generating new skin.
Vitamin C and Rheumatoid Arthritis
Vitamin C is necessary for collagen production. Collagen isn’t just important for healthy, young-looking skin, it’s the main protein in bone and joint tissue.
Rheumatoid arthritis causes inflammation in the lining of joints, leading to damage and deformity. Studies have shown high-dose vitamin C treatments can reduce the risk of developing inflammatory arthritis such as RA.
Vitamin C not only facilitates collagen production, it’s a powerful antioxidant fighting against the molecules triggering inflammation in the joints. Infection is also thought to trigger rheumatoid arthritis flare-ups, and vitamin C plays an important role in fighting off infections.
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.
What happens when you’re low on vitamin C?
Early symptoms of vitamin C deficiency include fatigue, depression, irritability, muscle pain and joint pain.
Severe vitamin C deficiency (scurvy) is a serious disorder no longer common in the developed world. Without treatment, scurvy leads to gum disease, hair loss, internal bleeding, decreased red blood cell count and skin problems.
Why not just take vitamin C supplements?
When we consume vitamin C in food, drinks or supplements less than 20% of the vitamin C is actually absorbed by our bodies. With IV vitamin infusions, 100% of the vitamin C can be used by the body immediately.
Another reason to choose fast-acting IV therapy for vitamin C treatments is because once inside the body vitamin C has a half-life of only 2 hours.
Can high dose vitamin C IV therapy help people with cancer?
Vitamin C IV therapy for cancer is a very popular yet controversial topic. Researchers have been studying the effects of high-dose vitamin C as a cancer treatment since the 1970s, but even today there have been no conclusive large-scale controlled clinical trials defining the precise role intravenous vitamin C has in cancer treatment or recovery from cancer treatment side effects.
Scientists are currently studying whether IV vitamin C treatments can boost the effectiveness of cancer treatments such as radiation or chemotherapy.
High dose vitamin C treatments have been studied and proven to be safe and well-tolerated with minimal side effects. While vitamin C has not yet been definitively proven to kill cancer cells, we do know it does not harm healthy cells.
Because vitamin C IV infusions can help people struggling with fatigue, fighting infections, dealing with a weakened immune system and healing from surgery, vitamin C IV treatments can help cancer survivors and people recovering from the side effects of cancer treatments improve quality of life.
If you or a loved one has been diagnosed with cancer or are recently in remission, we recommend talking to your doctor before beginning intravenous vitamin infusion treatments.
Can Vitamin C IV therapy prevent cancer?
While it cannot cure cancer directly, studies have shown that higher levels of Vitamin C in the bloodstream is associated with decreased risk of:
- Breast Cancer
- Lung Cancer
- Prostate Cancer
- Colon Cancer
- Liver Cancer
Vitamin C is known to be a powerful antioxidant, reduce cellular inflammation and protect healthy cells from free radical damage. There have not been any definitive clinical trials proving vitamin C helps prevent cancer, however studies have produced evidence of a protective effect of vitamin C, in particular for non-hormone-dependent types of cancer.
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.
Recommended dietary allowance (RDA) of vitamin C from both food and supplements:
|Who||Recommended daily intake||Upper limit of intake|
|Infants 0-6 months||40 mg (Adequate Intake)||---|
|Infants 7-12 months||50 mg (Adequate Intake)||---|
|Children 1-3 years||15 mg||400 mg|
|Children 4-8 years||25 mg||650 mg|
|Children 9-13 years||45 mg||1,200 mg|
|Girls 14-18 years||65 mg||1,800 mg|
|Boys 14-18 years||75 mg||1,800 mg|
|Men over 18||90 mg||2,000 mg|
|Women over 18||75 mg||2,000 mg|
|Pregnant women over 18||85 mg||2,000 mg|
|Breastfeeding women over 18||120 mg||2,000 mg|

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, less than half of the nutrients are absorbed. The way food is grown in the western hemisphere makes it hard to find natural fruit and vegetables with high enough levels of any vitamin to make a significant difference. IV supplementation is often the only option to get high doses of vitamin C directly into the bloodstream. 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.
