Top Health Benefits of Vitamin C:
Vitamin C is an essential component of your health and wellness. Unfortunately, your body can’t produce Vitamin C on its own. Foods like oranges, lemons, and red bell peppers are rich in Vitamin C and should be a part of your everyday diet.
Research shows that Vitamin C, or as a medication of IV Therapy, is highly beneficial for your body if any medical need arises.
Vitamin C IV Therapy allows you to bypass your GI tract and take full advantage of high doses of Vitamin C.
Here are some benefits of vitamin c with or without IV therapy :
- Collagen Production
- Anti-Cancer Properties
- Reducing toxicity levels in your body
- Fighting off cancer cells

Is vitamin C helps in reducing the probability of getting cancer?
The vitamin C myth and cancer have been around for 35 years and was promoted by Linus Pauling at the end of a very remarkable career. Linus Pauling was a two time Nobel Prize-winning scientist.
The Oncology Division attended a seminar at Stanford where Professor Pauling presented on vitamin C and cancer in the mid 80’s. Let’s be realistic. A whole lot of desperate cancer patients have taken high dose vitamin C both intravenously and by mouth. And the only patients that it works on are those who were not correctly diagnosed with cancer. Anyone with a misdiagnosis can be cured by anything, and I see patients, not frequently, but regularly, that are told they have terrible cancer, but they don’t have cancer or some kind that is such a low grade that they can be watched instead of treated.
Let’s use some common sense in evaluating claims like high dose vitamin C.
If high dose vitamin C worked, it would be an incredibly cheap treatment for a disease where treatments can exceed $150,000 a year per individual patient. Wouldn’t Blue Cross, Blue Shield, United Healthcare, Aetna, Kaiser, and others deny those kinds of very expensive treatments and insist that all cancer patients try high dose vitamin C first? For medical insurance companies, it’s a bottom-line issue, and they would save enormous amounts of money directing their patients to go to something that works and costs almost nothing.
But there are also clinical trials of vitamin C and cancer (Mayo Clinic) that have been uniformly negative.
The short answer to the question, from my side is Straight NO.
From my point of view, I view it as supportive, not curative. Eventually, research will provide a firm answer, one way or the other.
Vitamin C alone does not cure cancer. Vitamin C increases immunity, and good immunity can help with the destruction/removal of cancer cells. There are many other things together with Vit C that are necessary if you have cancer.
