Experience Vitamin C Benefits with IV Therapy in Asheville
High-dose vitamin C therapy is an oxidative therapy used as an antimicrobial and supportive cancer treatment. It also decreases inflammation in the vasculature and flush the lymphatic system.
IV administration is the only way to get the concentration of vitamin C (ascorbic acid) needed to have a therapeutic effect or attack cancer cells.
Benefits of Vitamin C IV Therapy
High-dose vitamin C can also be an effective antimicrobial. It has antibacterial, antiviral, antiparasitic, and antifungal properties. It can also reduce inflammation and help promote natural regeneration.
Research continues on high-dose vitamin C as a cancer treatment, but patients have reported significant improvements in a range of symptoms:
- Loss of appetite
IV Vitamin C and Cancer Treatment
Cancer cells are fragile. They can be damaged or by changes in acidity or oxidative stress, achieved by exposure to high doses of vitamin C. No matter how high the concentration, vitamin C does not harm healthy cells.
At high doses, vitamin C interacts with iron and other metals to create hydrogen peroxide. High concentrations of hydrogen peroxide can damage the DNA of cancer cells, shutting down their energy supply.

How Does High-Dose Vitamin C Therapy Work?
High doses of Vitamin C are considered to be at least 25 grams. At Forum Health Asheville, we start your IV therapy with 25 grams, then increase each treatment to a total of 100 grams per treatment, as your body tolerates it.
Generally, we recommend our patients begin with 12 sessions of High Dose Vitamin C. The optimal schedule is one treatment twice a week for six consecutive weeks. In that time, we’ll track improvements in your health and wellness.
At the end of your recommended treatment schedule, we’ll evaluate whether you have experienced improved quality of life or disease stabilization. From there, we’ll develop a plan for continued treatments.
