Ascorbic acid, like many of the infusion treatments offered at Longevity Centres of America, can be derived from foods and nutritional supplements. However, these methods, while effective, can’t attain the same transformative benefits of intravenous therapy. Through infusion therapy, our anti-aging doctors are able to supply high doses of ascorbic acid and other essential nutrients directly into the bloodstream, so they can start doing good the moment they enter your system.

What are the health benefits of ascorbic acid?

Ascorbic acid, more commonly known as vitamin C, has long been known to bolster the immune system against countless sources of infection and disease. Many people stock up on orange juice and other natural sources of this compound at the slightest sign of a cold, but this vitamin can do much more than fend off a frustrating case of sniffles.

While an influx of vitamin C can always give the immune system a much-needed boost, at Longevity Centres of America, we also provide ascorbic acid infusion therapy to treat everything from acute illnesses to various forms of cancer.

Why should I choose ascorbic acid infusion therapy?

Based on decades of research regarding the health benefits of vitamin C, our anti-aging doctors have determined that this nutrient has truly boundless medical capabilities. However, a recurring limitation of past treatment methods is that they simply cannot provide enough of this compound for it to achieve its medical potential. Medical researchers and nutritionists have certainly made a lot of progress in this field in recent years – take, for example, the growing prevalence of vitamin C supplement powders among mainstream consumers.

These higher concentrations are certainly beneficial, but studies have shown that the greater the amount of vitamin C in the system, the more effective it is in treating disease – particularly viral conditions.

Studies conducted in 1995 and 2001 have revealed that vitamin C is most effective in combatting the growth of cancer cells, for instance, when a high dose of the vitamin can accumulate at the site of a tumor. When taken orally – even in a concentrated supplement form – this compound still has to be processed through the liver and disseminated, making it exceedingly difficult to target its effects. Through infusion therapy, however, ascorbic acid is administered intravenously so a high, safe amount of the compound reaches the areas where it is most needed.

This ability to target the source of specific health concerns is why our anti-aging doctors advocate so strongly for intravenous ascorbic acid infusion therapy.

How does ascorbic acid infusion therapy work?

The goal of our ascorbic acid infusion therapy is to increase acute levels of vitamin C in the blood. To reach peak levels, we utilize a rapid infusion method, administering 25gm to 100gm of ascorbic acid into a patient’s system in a 30-minute period. Doing so has been shown to safely double, and even triple vitamin C levels in the bloodstream for a short period of time, allowing greater concentrations of the nutrient to reach targeted areas of the body. This method was first employed by Dr Kenner in 1971, and immediately began to counteract a toxicity-based condition without negative side effects.

Whether you are fighting off a serious viral infection or simply feel a bit run down, a round of ascorbic acid infusion therapy can boost your levels and vitamin C and help your body combat what may be ailing it. At Longevity Centres of America, we offer this and other intravenous treatments that promote aging longevity, and can help you determine the best natural methods to help you look and feel your best.
