High Dose Intravenous (IV) Vitamin C For Support of Chronic Fatigue in Office Workers
Fatigue is a common part of most people’s daily lives, especially in office workers. One study shows that 32.5% of adults visiting their doctor report chronic fatigue, and another study shows 27% of weekly assessed adults experience chronic fatigue regularly.
What Is Chronic Fatigue
Have you ever felt tired even after sleeping consistently 7 to 8 hours each night, or felt the sleep just wasn’t refreshing? Not having the energy to get up from bed or feeling dizziness after waking – especially while getting out of bed – are warning signs of chronic fatigue and can be symptoms of illness, such as infections or psychological disorders.
How Vitamin C Helps
Vitamin C is a well-known master antioxidant and taking vitamin C intravenously has been proven to improve the symptoms of oxidative stress, which is an underlying indication of chronic fatigue, leaving the body with more energy and ultimately helping to cope with a busy daily schedule.
Taking Vitamin C Orally vs. Intravenously (IV)
While taking vitamin C orally may help with symptoms of chronic fatigue, the impact is inconsistent and shows little effect due to poor bioavailability. However, randomized controlled studies show that high dose vitamin C taken intravenously is safe and much more effective, with improvement being felt within a few hours.
While vitamin C taken intravenously will not cure chronic fatigue, it will help reduce the symptoms allowing the body rest, improved focus and recovery of the mind. Exact dosage and frequency of IV vitamin C should be decided by your doctor and prescribed based on your medical history and current symptoms, however most people can take regular high dose vitamin C IV therapies and see consistent, ongoing benefits.
