IV Vitamin Therapy

High-Dose Vitamin C IV Drip

High-Dose Vitamin C Drip Therapy
At Harpal Clinic we provide high-dose vitamin C IV drips using the best quality vitamins available.

Mixed freshly in the clinic to suit your needs, we can administer various doses of vitamin C with higher doses requiring a G6PD blood test. We will advise you on this during your consultation.

Vitamin C, also known as ascorbic acid, is a powerful antioxidant that plays a crucial role in overall health. Beyond a certain dose, it acts as a pro-oxidant and this brings about a different set of properties which are beneficial. We may suggest a high-dose vitamin C IV drip if:

  • You spend a lot of time in the city, travel a lot, and are frequently exposed to pollution
  • You suddenly feel run down
  • You have gastrointestinal issues
  • You have a chronic infection
  • You have a vitamin deficiency
  • You have issues with malabsorption
  • You have recently undergone chemotherapy

“It’s important to consider the bigger picture and your long-term health. Whilst you may not necessarily feel an instant ‘boost’ from high-dose vitamin C, it does important work behind the scenes to refresh and revive the cells in your body so they function better, leading to better overall health. High-dose vitamin C is particularly useful for those who have a lot of demands on them, which makes for a heavy burden on the body."

What is a high-dose vitamin C IV drip?

We get vitamin C through consuming food and supplements, but as the body breaks it down, around half the nutrients are lost. Our high-dose vitamin C IV drip delivers pure vitamin C in a saline solution straight into the bloodstream, bypassing the digestive process (also called bacterial symbiosis). With a drip, almost all of the vitamins that your body can absorb actually get utilised! High-dose vitamin C is particularly useful for those who have a lot of demands on them, which makes for a heavy burden on the body.

 

In the UK the RDA for vitamin c is currently 40mg per day for adults aged 19-64, which is the equivalent of one and a half oranges.
