So get started, why would anybody wanna stick a bunch of vitamin C directly into your veins rather than just go get some Emergen-C from the local CVS?
When it comes to vitamin C for immune support, the amount you take orally is quite limited depending on how sick you are, due to a concept called bowel tolerance. When you’re healthy, we don’t need as much vitamin C, so you might take 1-2g and it will give you diarrhea, vitamin C has an osmotic effect, which means it draws water from the digestive tract, resulting in loose stool. However, when you’re sick, your demand for vitamin C grows exponentially.
One packet of Emergen-C contains 1g of vitamin C, while one IV bag contains up to 75g of vitamin C, and if you tried to drink 75 packets of Emergency-C, you’ll likely experience the symptoms mentioned above, as opposed to an IV that is administered intravenously.
