Immune Booster Infusion

What is the Immune Booster Infusion?

The Immune Booster infusion contains a megadose of 15 grams of Vitamin C, which is a potent antioxidant that has the power to boost immune function, increase resistance to infection, and protect against a wide range of diseases. It is essential for healing and plays a profound role in heart and brain functions and our immune system. Our daily requirements for optimal function when in good health, has been estimated to be between 2-4 grams. During illness or disease, we need more Vitamin C to speed up the healing process.

Why would I need an Infusion?

While you can increase your vitamin intake by eating more of certain foods e.g. citrus fruits and vegetables, or by taking oral supplements, there is a limit to how much you can consume before experiencing digestive disturbances. Often the amount of nutrients absorbed through the gut is less than ideal, due to various digestive problems. One way to ensure we get a large dose of Vitamin C is to have it injected straight into our system through the veins. This is referred to as intravenous (IV) therapy. For example, 10 g of IV vitamin C raises blood levels 25 times higher than the same dose taken orally, and this increases up to 70-fold as doses get larger. Our Vitamin C infusion contains 15 g.

What can megadose Vitamin C infusions help with?
