Cancer Fighting Effect of Intravenous Vitamin C

High doses of Intravenous Vitamin C were shown to help fight cancer in multiple studies. The researchers took a look at the vitamin after previous studies during the 70’s suggested that high doses of Ascorbate or Vitamin C could help fight cancer. After these investigations, additional studies that used the same high doses were observed to have no advantage while some of them utilized only Vitamin C orally and not doses of Intravenous Vitamin C.

After those initial trails, there were failures with the studies using oral vitamin C. Doctor Mark Levine, the director of the division on molecular and clinical nutrition of the National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases,  concluded that this method of administration was not effective. But Levine and his team chose to re-observe the therapy after working with the federal government who recently recommended levels for daily intake of vitamin C.

A part of these studies was to examine the body’s absorption of the nutrient and found out that while oral consumption reached a shorter saturation point, intravenous administration had a longer time for saturation. According to Levine, a dose of 10 grams of Intravenous Vitamin C produces 25 times higher concentrations in the bloodstream which was achieved by the same dose of oral vitamin C.

Some antibiotics are poorly absorbed when administered orally, but fight infections effectively when administered intravenously. So this made Levine and his team believe that might be the case with vitamin C and cancer.

Working with cell lines in the laboratory, they used high doses of vitamin C which could be achieved only by intravenous administration. Levine noticed that with the highest concentration of Intravenous Vitamin C, does not alter normal cells but instead attacks cancer cells. Until now, there had still been no explanation for this phenomenon. According to the study during a proceeding of the National Academy of Sciences, ascorbic acid or vitamin C directed to the development of hydrogen peroxide, an element that can inhibit the growth of cells. This finding advocates an impending mechanism for cancer therapy according to Dr. Levine.

The latest study will produce another round of research on the cancer-fighting ability of Intravenous vitamin C as mentioned by Dr. Len Lichtenfeld, deputy chief medical officer of the American Cancer Society. According to him, the scientific investigation was remarkable and quoted that it was conducted by respected scientists.

The American Cancer Society highlights the value of dietary vitamin C in lowering the risk of having the deadly disease of cancer. Vitamin C may comprise a defensive role in reducing the risk of many types of cancer when consumed as part of a cancer fighting diet.

The AIM Center for Alternative Integrative Medicine is under direction of Medical Doctors and Naturopath Robert Galarowicz who offer intravenous Vitamin C for many illnesses, disease and for fighting cancer. Generally, each treatment is in the area of $150 and since this therapy is not approved by the FDA insurance will not cover the fee.  If you are interested please speak call Robert Galarowicz at 201.618.3534, so he can speak to you to see if you are a good candidate and to move forward.

AIM Center is located in New Jersey and right outside of New York State and NYC.
