Vitamin C Q&A

What is vitamin C?

Like many of the vitamins your body needs, vitamin C is an essential nutrient that plays a critical role in several vital functions, such as:

  • Creation of collagen
  • Improving skin health
  • Strengthening your immune system
  • Metabolizing proteins
  • Supporting eye health
  • Fighting infections
  • Mitigating the effects of sun damage and cigarette smoke


Vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant that keeps your heart healthy and increases the absorption of other vitamins in your body.

What foods contain vitamin C?

Vitamin C is readily available in many everyday foods, such as:

  • Citrus
  • Brussels sprouts
  • Strawberries
  • Peppers
  • Broccoli


Vitamin C is a water-soluble vitamin that can be easily destroyed through cooking or washing. Additionally, your body isn’t able to store vitamin C for later use, which means you need a daily dose in order to maintain the vital body functions it plays a role in.

To get the most out of the food you consume, you’d need to eat large quantities of vitamin C-rich foods and hope that you’re getting the amount you expect. Thankfully, intravenous vitamin C therapy at Elevate U Hydration and Wellness quickly ramps up your vitamin C levels.

Who is a candidate for vitamin C IV therapy?

Your nurse at Elevate U Hydration and Wellness can determine if you’re a good candidate for vitamin C IV therapy during a consultation. But as a water-soluble vitamin that supports many important body functions, anyone would benefit from vitamin C IV therapy.

What are the side effects of vitamin C IV therapy?

Fortunately, there are no known side effects of vitamin C IV therapy, even at high doses. You may be sore and have some mild swelling at the injection site, but it’s temporary and goes away on its own in a day or two.

The diligent team of nurses at Elevate U Hydration and Wellness have administered thousands of intravenous doses of vitamin C without any problems or serious side effects.
