High-Dose Vitamin C Therapy In Greater Austin, TX
Vitamin C is a very powerful antioxidant that is essential for the health of our bodies. It’s anti-inflammatory and plays a vital role in growth, development and repair of all body tissues.
Daily stress, poor nutrition and unhealthy habits can wreak havoc in our bodies, robbing them of important nutrients and making it harder to stave off infections and diseases.
Eating healthy foods, lowering the amount of stress and adding regular physical activity plays an important role in our health – both mental and physical. Since it’s quite hard to eat the proper amounts of healthy foods daily, taking supplements may help us get the proper amounts of nutrients to our bodies.
Why Do I Need High-Dose Vitamin C Therapy?
So what’s the catch?
Why do I need a high-dose Vitamin C therapy if I can just take oral supplements?
Research shows that, no matter which dose of Vitamin C you take, your body can only absorb 30% of it. Considering that high dosages, when taken orally, always cause irritated stomach and diarrhea, it’s easy to see why we recommend a high-dose Vitamin C therapy to our patients.
If you’re suffering from a virus, an infection, a blood-borne disease, or cancer, high-dose Vitamin C Therapy can help. At Forum Health, we take pride in being integrative medical practitioners.
For that reason, we rarely use only one treatment; we take time to get to know you, listen to your concerns and use that information to find the right treatments for you.

Benefits Of High-Dose Vitamin C Therapy
Vitamin C has many great benefits. It’s one of the safest and most effective nutrients, whose benefits include:
- Building a stronger immune system;
- Lowering the risk of cardiovascular diseases;
- Reducing overall stress levels;
- Helping to fight cancer;
- Lowering the side effects of cancer treatments;
- Improving energy levels;
- And more.
High-dose Vitamin C therapy gets the vitamin intravenously to your body, and that helps it reach much higher levels in the blood than could ever be achieved when taken by mouth.
Can I Have Too Much Vitamin C?
While there are so many benefits to Vitamin C, it is possible to have too much of it. High doses of Vitamin C can be toxic and cause kidney stones, and patients can feel very ill.
This is yet another reason why it’s extremely important to have your high-dose Vitamin C therapy administered by reputable medical practitioners with knowledge and experience.
