About our IV Therapy Clinics and treatment: Intravenous Vitamin C – Safe, Evidence-Based, Effective
Ascorbic acid is an essential nutrient and a powerful antioxidant. A number of major studies suggest that I.V. Vitamin C can provide significant benefit in a number of cancers, including those that often have a poor prognosis, such as liver cancer, melanoma, and pancreatic cancer.
Working with CA with IV vitamin C is not new. High-dose vitamin C has proven to be extremely toxic to a wide variety of cancer cell lines, while leaving normal, healthy cells undamaged. I.V. Vitamin C also boosts the effectiveness of several common chemotherapy drugs. In human trials, IV Vitamin C has been shown to significantly improve quality of life for breast cancer patients and for patients with other cancers.
A recent study showed that IV vitamin C significantly reduced inflammation markers in 76 percent of cancer patients. (Low inflammation markers can predict a better prognosis.) Just as impressively, the same trial showed that IV vitamin C decreased tumor markers in 77 percent of prostate cancer patients and 73 percent of breast cancer patients.
Studies clearly indicate that cancer patients who begin IV vitamin C therapy early in their illness tend to respond better, as do patients who undergo a greater number of vitamin C infusions.
