Vitamin C Injection

Vitamin C is an essential source of our diet. It has many important roles in the immune function of our body, including wound healing, preventing damage to cells, building collagen, producing chemical messengers called neurotransmitters. Vitamin C is found naturally in many fresh foods, especially citrus fruits and fruit juice, red and green peppers, broccoli, strawberries, Brussels sprouts. However, vitamin C taken from food does not meet the amount of what body needs. In this case, vitamin C can also be taken from their supplements.

Vitamin C supplements can also be taken through oral tablets, chewable pills, slow-absorption tablets, or slow-absorption tablets capsules. Vitamin C is also available by prescription as an injection. Vitamin C is also available by prescription. Vitamin C injection can be given intravenously (i.e. by adding it into the serum), in between or subcutaneously.

Vitamin C deficiency can lead to serious health problems

Vitamin C deficiency can cause various diseases and scurvy disease, which are related to the weakness of the immune system. Symptoms of vitamin C deficiency include gum swelling and bleeding, fatigue, difficulty healing wounds, joint pain, loose teeth, skin spots. In some cases, symptoms of scurvy may appear within a month if less than 10 milligrams (mg) of vitamin C is consumed per day. Vitamin C deficiency is most commonly seen in the people who smoke, consume a limited variety of foods, and have food absorption problems.

Vitamin C injection protects the overall health of the body

Vitamin C injection helps in the treatment of serious wounds caused by immune system weakness, cancer, trauma or burns. In addition, it is used when vitamin C levels need to be increased quickly or when oral supplements cannot be taken due to poor absorption or other reasons.

The typical dose of vitamin C injection to treat vitamin C deficiency is 200 mg once a day for up to a week. The typical injection dose of vitamin C for wound healing is 1 gram once a day for 5 to 21 days. Vitamin C contributes to the strengthening of the body’s immune system and increasing its resistance to diseases by increasing the absorption of iron in food.
