Why Is Vitamin C Crucial to Keeping Us Healthy?

Did you know our bodies don’t naturally produce Vitamin C?

Vitamin C is water-soluble, meaning the body does not hold onto it. Therefore, in order for individuals to maintain adequate levels of Vitamin C, we need to eat fruits and vegetables that contain it. However, it’s nearly impossible for anyone to consume the appropriate amount of Vitamin C to see real results.

As a vital component of hydration, energy and recovery, Vitamin C is extremely important. Luckily, intravenous (IV) hydration containg Vitamin C can help you absorb all the nutrients you need in a quick one-hour session – including hard to absorb vitamins.

What Does Vitamin C Do?

So, what exactly does Vitamin C do for your body?

Vitamin C acts as an antioxidant, helping to protect the cells in your body from damage caused by air pollution, cigarette smoke and much more.

Perhaps one of the most important things that Vitamin C does is help your body make collagen.

Collagen is an important protein that is required to help wounds heal and of course help the immune system work properly to help your body fight against illness and disease.

Vitamin C has various uses. From helping you fight a cold to help prevent or treat cancer! With so many benefits, scientists are still studying all the ways that Vitamin C can help our bodies.

Vitamin C and Hydration

At our Colorado IV clinics, we often get asked “does Vitamin C help with hydration?

in short, yes, Vitamin C plays a vital role in the hydration of your skin. Your skin contains high-levels of Vitamin C, with the nutrient playing a vital role in protecting and hydrating the skin.

Top studies have shown that increasing your intake of Vitamin C through supplements (including IV vitamin drips) improves numerous factors of skin health and hydration.

IV Vitamin C drips can have even greater benefits for hydration than oral supplements, as the vitamins are delivered straight to the bloodstream and immediately available to the skin.

Many of the IV hydration therapy packages we offer at our Colorado Springs and Denver locations contain high levels of Vitamin C, including the HIGH DOSE VITAMIN C, RADIANT YOUTH and IMMUNE TUNE packages.

Vitamin C and COVID-19

COVID-19 has surely thrown everyone for a loop this year and though research is still ongoing there are recent studies showing that adding Vitamin C, Zinc and Vitamin D3 into your system may actually reduce the symptoms associated with COVID-19.

In fact, an analysis of 6 studies found that Vitamin C reduced the length of stays in the ICU by 8.6%!

The great part is the vitamins mentioned above known to help with COVID-19 symptoms are already included in our Immune Tune hydration package. Vitamin C, Vitamin D3, Zinc and Glutathione all infused into one liter of hydration that is easily absorbed by your body in under 60 minutes.
