What is Oxidative Stress?
This can be caused by a number of factors, such as long-term stress, mental and physical exhaustion, air pollution, but also the undesirable effects of many drugs, including chemotherapy. This is a situation where a large amount of free oxygen radicals are created in the body, which can cause very serious illnesses.
Treatment and prevention of vitamin C
Vitamin C helps the body get rid of these substances and also has other positive effects on the body. In particular, it improves the detoxification of foreign substances in the liver including carcinogens, supports cells of the immune system, works anti-inflammatory, improves brain function and also contributes to the formation of collagen necessary for the healthy functioning of the joints and vessels.
The curative effect of vitamin C has been studied since the 1950s, and studies have been carried out to confirm these positive effects.
Body and Vitamin C
Vitamin C can not create the body itself and it is necessary to supply it regularly. The most common source is food where the recommended daily intake is 100-200 mg of vitamin C. If the body is loaded with increased oxidative stress, vitamin C is much higher.
These increased demands on vitamin C intake are no longer possible due to limited transport in the intestine, but intravenous administration is appropriate. In this case, it is recommended to administer 7.5 g intravenously (intravenously).
Vitamin C and oncological diseases
In most patients with oncological disease, low levels of vitamin C have been demonstrated in the blood. Currently, high-dose vitamin C therapy in oncology is used in the Czech Republic in particular in the prevention and therapy of the adverse effects of chemotherapy and radiotherapy (irradiation), to strengthen the immune system in terms of improving the immune response and to reduce the risk of infection of the weakened organism. Here, a dosage of 7.5 g intravenously is usually used 2-3 times a week for 4-5 weeks.
Vitamin C is safe
Generally speaking, vitamin C administration is safe because it is the body’s own substance. Caution should be exercised only in patients with impaired renal function or with a tendency to develop kidney stones.
Preparation of vitamin C for intravenous administration is technically challenging, the solution must be completely cleaned from the side-effects to avoid allergic reactions. Therefore, it is always necessary to choose a preparation made in a reputable company and, if possible, to avoid preparations from unverified plants.
