Avoid the Winter colds and flu with a Vitamin C boost
The seasonal change to Winter makes our immune system vulnerable to those nasty viruses, coughs, colds and flu.
That's why its important in your preventative healthcare to make sure you give your immune system the boost in needs.
Vitamin C is probably one of the most widely used and highly valued vitamins in the world today for strengthening the immune system.
Vitamin C helps the Immune system battle against cancer, infections, degenerative diseases such as arthritis, diabetes, heart disease, cataracts, Alzheimer’s disease, and many other diseases and illnesses.
Not only can Vitamin C help us to feel better and live longer, it has been proven to support numerous functions that can help us prevent disease and attain optimal health.
Vitamin C, also called ascorbic acid, is a powerful water-soluble antioxidant that is vital for the growth nd maintenance of all body tissues. As humans do not manufacture their own Vitamin C it is necessary for us rely on external sources. It can be found in different food sources, taken as a supplement or when large doses are required, taken through intravenous infusion.
The benefits of maintaining healthy levels of Vitamin C are many:
This excellent antioxidant nutrient protects us from the ravages of free radicals that, if left to destroy cell membranes and damage DNA, can lead to the development of degenerative diseases and accelerated ageing.
Vitamin C helps manufacture collegan, the basic cellular ‘cement’ that keeps muscles, tendons, bones, teeth and skin healthy and strong. It also aids in the repair of blood vessels and broken bones.
Vitamin C benefits heart conditions of all kinds, helps to normalise blood pressure, reduces cholesterol levels and aids in the removal of cholesterol deposits from arterial walls.
Vitamin C helps the body absorb and use other vital nutrients such as folic acid and iron.
At Desana we provide clients with high quality Vitamin C both through oral supplementation and intravenous infusion. Some people, for various reasons, have difficulty in absorbing the required doses orally or, due to the laxative action of Vitamin C, may experience diarrhea. In such cases, intravenous infusion is used to ensure direct absorption into the blood stream. This method of administering Vitamin C is also particularly effective in treating people who are very sick.
Intravenous Vitamin C is the most effective way to absorb the maximum amount of Vitamin C when you need it the most.
