Vitamins – They Do A Body Good
Vitamins. Some of us think of Flintstone Chewable Vitamins while others think more organically. We may purchase daily vitamins at a health food or chain store, and some of us are invested enough in our health that we boost our health, immunity, and well-being through IV vitamin infusions. Our lives are so busy and sometimes stressful that most of us can benefit from vitamin supplements. Vitamin C, one of the most commonly known vitamins and one with a multitude of benefits, can be included in any wellness IV treatment you choose.
Vitamin C As An Antioxidant
Vitamin C, which is also known as ascorbic acid, is a water-soluble vitamin. The water in your body easily absorbs and uses it. As a water-soluble vitamin, your body uses it quickly, which means it has to be consumed frequently. Our bodies don’t naturally produce vitamin C, so we have to eat foods rich in it or get it through supplements.
Vitamin C is an antioxidant, which is important in protecting your cells from damage done by free radicals. If there’s an imbalance between antioxidants (like vitamin C) and free radicals, your body experiences oxidative stress. Oxidative stress contributes heavily to:
- Neurological conditions like Parkinson’s disease
In short, vitamin C is crucial to maintaining health and wellness.

Vitamin C has been proven via numerous studies to benefit the body in other ways. For example, vitamin C can:

Vitamin C is clearly a powerhouse in protecting our overall health and well-being.
Where To Find Vitamin C
Vitamin C can be found in many foods. Some of the foods most commonly found in the American diet and easily accessed in grocery stores are:
- Brussels sprouts
While vitamin C can be obtained through food, it’s also very commonly supplemented. The body processes excess vitamin C through the kidneys, excreting it through urine. If your body can’t use it, it will lose it.
