Intravenous (IV) vitamin C therapy has become an increasingly popular way to harness the power of vitamin C for various health goals. But how exactly does it work, and what are the potential benefits?
This comprehensive guide breaks down everything you need to know about vitamin C IV therapy so you can determine if it’s right for you.
Vitamin C IV therapy involves injecting high doses of vitamin C directly into the bloodstream through an intravenous (IV) line.
When given as an IV infusion, vitamin C levels in the blood can be much higher than when taken as a pill or capsule. Oral vitamin C intake is limited by how much our digestive system can absorb.
One study shows IV vitamin C infusions can safely reach 25-30 times higher vitamin C levels in the blood compared to oral doses. This is done by giving doses of 100 grams or more intravenously.
IV vitamin C is used to help reduce inflammation and improve symptoms in cancer patients. It may also shorten recovery time from colds and flu by boosting the immune system. More research is still needed, but high-dose IV vitamin C shows potential as an anti-cancer therapy.

The potential side effects of Vitamin C IV therapy include both common mild side effects and rarer severe side effects.
Common mild side effects reported include:
Rarer severe side effects include hemolysis (breakdown of red blood cells) in patients with glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase deficiency. These side effects are generally minor and resolve quickly when the infusion is complete.
Some emerging research shows intravenous vitamin C therapy may have potential as an anti-cancer agent, but more studies are still needed.
Here’s what we know so far:
While intravenous vitamin C therapy shows promise as a supportive measure for cancer patients, keep in mind it remains an unproven treatment still under investigation. Be sure to talk to a doctor first before considering it.
