Vitamin C Injection

Vitamin C is a water-soluble vitamin that acts as an antioxidant in the body. It increases collagen production and is essential for boosting the immune system. It also plays a crucial role in preventing cell damage caused by free radicals. Free radicals are unstable atoms that can damage cells, causing illness and aging. High levels of vitamin C have been associated with a lowered risk of heart disease, hypertension, and stroke. Humans, unlike some animals, cannot synthesize vitamin C by themselves, so it must be ingested in another manner. Luckily it is easy enough to find in dietary supplements, IV infusions, and is readily available in many foods. Vitamin C is abundant in fruits and vegetables such as citrus, guavas, strawberries, bell peppers, kale, etc.
