High Dosage Vitamin C treatment has been shown to help some individuals with the influenza virus manage symptoms, shorten the duration of the illness, and decrease inflammation to vital organs such as the lungs, which are at particular high risk for damage. It stimulates the immune system to produce interferon, to increase the number of natural killer cells. It optimizes phagocytosis and leukocyte migration, putting immune system in defensive action.
High-doses of Vitamin C IV therapy helps to prevent and treat cardiovascular disorders and diseases.

AMD and cataracts are two of the leading causes of vision loss in older individuals. Certain groups of people with AMD can benefit from vitamin C IV therapy. High doses of Vitamin C can slow down the progression of AMD. It is thought to be most beneficial in certain groups of people, such as people with either advanced AMD or with vision loss (due to AMD) in one eye. High-dose vitamin C intake has been associated with a lower risk of cataract formation in some studies.
Vitamin C IV infusion therapy also treats Lyme Disease. One major benefit Vitamin C has on the body is to enhance immune function. In times of physical or emotional stress, a weakened immune system predisposes our body to the grips of infection like the flu or Pneumonia. Vitamin C IV therapy treatment contains high doses of ascorbic acid and other vitamins and minerals and effectively stimulates the body’s immune system so that one can more effectively fight off the offending agent such as Lyme Disease. Vitamin C IV treatment is used for both acute and chronic infections.
