Should I Consider Vitamin IV Infusion After Surgery

Vitamin C

Should I Consider Vitamin IV infusion after surgery?

It has been understood that Vitamin C is essential for the body’s production of collagen. Collagen in turn is essential for wound healing and provides the skin with much needed support. When the body undergoes surgery or endures a trauma, nearly 100 times more Vitamin C is required for quick healing. This is rapidly drawn from what your body has been storing and can lead to multiple vitamin deficiencies. The period after surgery is also when you are most vulnerable to becoming sick because most of your energy will be put into tissue repair. IV infusion increases the amount of vitamins your body can absorb and allows it to enter the bloodstream quickly. If you attempted to take this much Vitamin C orally, you would suffer additional side effects such as diarrhea or abdominal discomfort. The addition of IV glutathione helps to reduce inflammation and encourage tissue healing.
