We’ve all been told to eat our fruits and vegetables to fight off sickness and maintain a healthy diet, but now we’re hearing that high intake of vitamin C can reduce your risk of getting cancer. By high intake, we mean an intravenous dose of vitamin C on a regular basis.
Recent studies have shown that a six-month regimen of high-dose intravenous vitamin C slows progression of leukemia by not allowing the cells to multiply. The study also reports a growing list of evidence that supports the anti-cancer properties of vitamin C.
What makes vitamin C have cancer-fighting potential?
Researchers began to focus on leukemia cells, specifically an enzyme called Tet methylcytosine dioxygenase 2 (TET2). This enzyme signals stem cells to mature into differentiated blood cells – and also contributes to an overabundance of immature blood stem cells and not enough healthy white blood cells. This study showed that intravenous injections of high-dose vitamin C seemed to rescue TET2 functions and engage in a process that signals cancer cells to mature and die.
Upping your dosage in vitamin C is never a bad idea. Not only does vitamin C enhance your immune system, it also lowers hypertension, treats vasodilation and cataracts, combats stroke, and improves your mood and repairs wounds. These important benefits can be sourced from eating citrus fruits or leafy vegetables, but the fastest and highest dose comes from intravenous injections that can be provided at IV Liquid Assets in Fairhope.
