High Dose C May Lower CRP Levels

Very interesting blog… I am very excited to get my CRP retaken (a pro-inflammatory marker) next week and compare now that i have done nearly two months of high dose IVC. 

“The Riordan Clinic has long been interested in the use of ascorbic acid (vitamin C) at millimolar concentrations (attainable via intravenous infusions) to treat illnesses associated with inflammation, including cancer, atherosclerosis, and viral infections.  At high doses, vitamin C has been shown to reduce the production of pro-inflammatory cytokines.”

“The effect of intravenous vitamin C (IVC) treatment on subjects with RA demonstrated that IVC therapy with dosages of 7.5 g-50g can reduce inflammation and the pain levels. The inflammation as measured by C-reactive protein levels was decreased on average by 44 %.”


Here is a link to the study.
