Especially in winter, when it is cold and many people are very stressed, our immune system suffers. It’s easy to forget to eat a balanced diet rich in vitamins and catch a cold. Only then do most people remember to eat plenty of fruits and vegetables to get enough vitamins. One of the best known and most important vitamins is vitamin C (ascorbic acid) – the all-rounder among vitamins.
WHY IS ASCORBIC ACID SO GOOD?
Vitamin C, or ascorbic acid, is involved in many processes in the body and is therefore enormously important. It has a proven antioxidant effect and therefore protects the body from free radicals, it promotes iron absorption and contributes significantly in the formation of connective tissue, teeth and bones.
Ascorbic acid can still:
It supports the immune system → protects against infections.
It is anti-inflammatory → supports wound healing after operations.
It leads to an anti-aging effect → supports the skin
It promotes stress reduction → lifts the mood
It supports the connective tissue
It supports fat metabolism
It detoxifies → supports the breakdown of harmful substances in the liver
✓ GOOD SKIN CARE ALSO COMES FROM WITHIN!
The combination of dry heating air and ice-cold wind can quickly dry out the skin, especially in winter. In order to regain the fresh glow, it is very important to support the skin with vitamins from the inside in addition to sufficient moisturizing care.
The antioxidant vitamin stimulates collagen formation, improves skin elasticity and protects the skin against environmental influences. It therefore has an important anti-aging effect on the skin.
✓ PREVENTING ILLNESS WITH ASCORBIC ACID
Those who recognize the first flu symptoms in time can prevent an outbreak of illness with an increased dose of scorbic acid. Ascorbic acid is antioxidant and therefore essential for the defense against bacteria and viruses. The vitamin protects our immune system. Even if the disease has already broken out, an increased ascorbic acid dose has a supporting effect on the body.
✓ STRENGTHENING AFTER THE OPERATION
It has now been found that ascorbic acid intake after surgery can have a positive effect on wound healing. Surgeries weaken the immune system and vitamin C deficiency occurs. A high-dose supply via the blood by means of vitamin C infusion therapy can rapidly boost the wound healing process. In addition, collagen formation is strengthened and oxidative stress is reduced.
Ascorbic acid therefore has a supportive effect when the body is weakened after surgery.
HOW DO YOU SUPPLY THE BODY WITH SUFFICIENT ASCORBIC ACID?
Ascorbic acid cannot be produced by the body itself, nor can it be stored. It is therefore very important to add ascorbic acid to the body regularly and from the outside.
Heavy smokers or those who take certain medications (e.g. often the “pill”) suffer from vitamin C deficiency. Diabetes sufferers can also absorb less of the important nutrient and should therefore take proportionately more ascorbic acid.
A severe deficiency of ascorbic acid that leads to disease, on the other hand, is rare. In the past, the disease “scurvy” was common among sailors because they ate far too little fruit and vegetables on their long sea voyages.
Today, this disease is very rare. Today, the lack of ascorbic acid shows itself much more in the form of weakness, fatigue, immune deficiency, muscle pain or minor bleeding.
Vitamin C through food
Classically, ascorbic acid can be taken in through food.
However, the body can only absorb a certain dose through vitamins taken orally, the rest is excreted. Vitamin C is water-soluble, sensitive to heat and light. Therefore, food containing vitamin C should not be overcooked or stored away from light.
Tip: Frozen vegetables can therefore often contain more ascorbic acid than fresh vegetables, as they have survived the long transport route frozen and protected from light.
VITAMIN C VIA INFUSIONS
Another way of taking this important nutrient is via high-dose vitamin C infusion therapy. In contrast to oral intake, a much higher dose of vitamin C can be administered via infusion and the body can also absorb the vitamin much better via the blood. A vitamin C bomb, so to speak. The vitamin enters the bloodstream directly and is immediately absorbed by the body’s cells.
Especially after surgery, the immune system can be weakened, which is why a vitamin C high-dose infusion supports the body and boosts wound healing. But also in the case of herpes viruses, infectious diseases, burn-out, rheumatism, tumor therapies or histamine tolerance, the vitamin C high-dose infusion can supportive.
Tip: In just 30 minutes you are fully fueled with the high-quality vitamin and are thus fit again to survive the stressful everyday life.
WHAT IS PARTICULARLY HIGH IN VITAMIN C?
“Drink lots of freshly squeezed orange juice and tea with lemon!” – who doesn’t know this home remedy from mothers? Indeed, fruits and vegetables contain a lot of the important vitamin. But citrus fruits like oranges and lemons actually contain relatively little ascorbic acid.
Red peppers have the highest vitamin C content in vegetables, but broccoli, horseradish and Brussels sprouts are also high in vitamin C. In fruits, the exotic fruits acerola and camu-camu are top performers in terms of vitamin C content. Domestic vitamin C carriers are the rosehip, the sea buckthorn berry or the black currant.
As you can see, ascorbic acid is really an all-rounder, as it is responsible for so many different processes in the body. Those who regularly eat enough fruits and vegetables ensure a balanced vitamin household.
However, if you are under a lot of stress, have had surgery, or suffer from any of the other diseases listed above, you can help strengthen your body with a vitamin boost through the Vitamin C High Dose Infusion!
