Vitamin C (Ascorbic Acid) is a water-soluble antioxidant important for the function of immune cells, increasing the production of extracellular collagen. Vitamin C levels in the body are kept under control by the intestines and kidneys. Due to these systems, vitamin C is not stored in the body and is excreted from the body. Intravenous vitamin C can produce very high levels of this vitamin in the body.
Blood levels of vitamin C do not change even when taken orally in divided doses of up to 18 g. Intravenous vitamin C bypasses the intestinal and kidney barrier in the body, allowing to reach 70 times higher levels of vitamin C with a dose of only 2 g. Vitamin C, which should be taken into the body daily with food, is 75 mg for women and 90 mg for men.
Much higher doses of Vitamin C than can be taken intravenously orally can be given slowly as an infusion into the body. By determining the needs and disease status of the person, high-dose Vitamin C can be applied in the serum.
Low (Anti-Oxidant) Doses: 0.1-10gr
Medium (Pro-Oxidant) Doses: 10-30gr
High (Oxidant) Doses: Over 30gr (0.5-1.5gr/kg doses are meant).
Can vitamin C serum be given intravenously in patients with Covid-19 infection?
Anti-viral effects of vitamin C are seen when blood levels are around 10-15 mg/dL. This level can only be reached through the vein, not the oral route.
