High Dose Vitamin C a New Research

High Dose Vitamin C A New Research


For many decades, the use of the High Dose Intravenous Vitamin C was highly debated between Naturopathic Medicine Doctors and other Health Care professionals, especially when used in contentious areas such as Cancer Care. The value of using the High Dose Intravenous Vitamin C for patients with cancer has been unclear for decades (even until now), and the aim of the current article (High Dose Vitamin C a New Research) is to explore the real benefit /or not) of using the High Dose Vitamin C in Naturopathic Medicine, especially in patients with cancer.

In summary, basic research was done on colon cancer KRAS-positive cells in the lab and concluded that High Doses of Vitamin C can target many cancers-related metabolic pathways such as reducing the synthesis of the ATP needed by the cancer cells for energy and growth.

The safety of administration of the High Dose Intravenous Vitamin C was proved by many researchers even at relatively high doses (3 GM/KG body weight), with a very low incidence of some metabolic changes (such as mildly elevated sodium levels and this may cause a slight elevation of the blood pressure and low potassium).

The role of the High Dose of Intravenous Vitamin C in improving the quality of life and pain in patients with advanced disease and palliative care was demonstrated and it showed marked improvements in some symptoms with the use of the High Dose of Intravenous Vitamin C such as loss of appetite, fatigue, and the lack of sleep.

The Prooxidant properties of the High Dose of Intravenous Vitamin C add to the other benefits of this form of treatment because higher doses of Vitamin C can fight against Oxidative Radicles (ORs) as compared to lower doses of Vitamin C which act as an antioxidant, not a Prooxidant.


The article is full of information about the benefits of High Dose Intravenous Vitamin C and was published recently in the Journal of the Experimental and Clinical Cancer Research in 2021 (under Bottiger et al)  you can check this link for detailed information https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC8557029/
