The Big Picture of IV Vitamin C

The Big Picture of IV Vitamin C
The Power of IV Vitamin C Infusion Therapies

In recent years, the health and wellness industry has seen a surge in the popularity of Intravenous (IV) Vitamin C infusion therapies. These therapies, once a secret of the elite and health aficionados, have become more mainstream, offering a range of health benefits impossible with typical oral vitamins. Let's delve into the different types of IV Vitamin C infusion therapies and uncover the unique benefits each brings.

Traditional IV Vitamin C Therapy

Traditional IV Vitamin C therapy involves the direct infusion of high doses of Vitamin C into the bloodstream. It's widely recognized for its unsurpassed antioxidant properties, strengthening the immune system, and its role in collagen production, which aids in skin rejuvenation and wound healing. This therapy is often sought for its general wellness benefits, including fighting off everything from debilitating pathogens to common colds and reducing fatigue. This approach is particularly popular during flu seasons or in times of pandemic outbreaks. The high dosage can neutralize oxidative stress (which accompanies every disease state), reduce inflammation and eliminate viral and bacterial infections in extremely short order.

IV Vitamin C with Glutathione for Detoxification

This therapy combines Vitamin C with Glutathione, a potent antioxidant known for its detoxifying properties. As Glutathione is often referred to as the "master antioxidant," this cocktail is prescribed to individuals exposed to high levels of toxins or those looking to cleanse their body from the inside out. This combination works synergistically to support liver function and eliminate toxins, promoting overall health and vitality. The addition of B vitamins plays an additional and crucial role, helping to recycle and prolong the effects of Glutathione.

Cancer-Specific IV Vitamin C Therapy

Some protocols include high-dose Vitamin C therapy as a treatment for cancer patients. The theory is that Vitamin C, at very high levels, can produce hydrogen peroxide in body tissues, selectively killing cancer cells while leaving healthy cells unharmed. At the tip of the spear in this approach is vitamin C, vitamin K3, and alpha lipoic acid. This IV combination has been shown to kill cancer 10 times more efficiently, while leaving normal cells completely unharmed. Additionally, this therapy combination has been shown to help the immune system "see" cancer cells, thus allowing the natural immune system to seek out and destroy cancer with greatly improved efficiency.

The Revolutionary Oral Alternative

While IV therapies offer significant benefits, they are not without their drawbacks, including the need for clinical administration and potential discomfort. This is where our IVtoGo’s oral therapies come into play, offering a sophisticated and convenient alternative that covers most - if not all - of the needs addressed by the common IV Vitamin C therapies.

IVtoGo: Vitamin C, Glutathione, and B Vitamins

IVtoGo ingeniously combines Vitamin C with Glutathione and a spectrum of B vitamins, encapsulated in proprietary liposomes for absorption far greater than IV drips. This carefully curated blend, combined with efficient absorption, mirrors the benefits of IV Vitamin C with Glutathione therapy, supporting detoxification, immune function, and energy production. It is ideal for those seeking super-powerful wellness support without the inconvenience of IV infusions.

C-Max: Cancer-Specific Therapy with Vitamin C, Vitamin K3, and Alpha Lipoic Acid

Designed with cancer patients in mind, our second therapy combines high-dose Vitamin C with oxidative Vitamin K3 and Alpha Lipoic Acid, leveraging their synergistic effects to target cancer cells while supporting healthy tissues. This unique formulation offers a novel approach to traditional cancer treatments and IV therapy, facilitating powerful anticancer prodrug effects that are extremely difficult to replicate by anything else.


The landscape of health and wellness continues to evolve, with IV Vitamin C infusion therapies playing a significant role in this transformation. However, our revolutionary oral therapies offer a compelling, convenient, and sophisticated alternative, covering a broad spectrum of health needs with the added advantage of proprietary liposomal technology for superior absorption. When you are ready to experience the future of vitamin therapy, IVtoGo stands ready.

Which Product is Right for Me?

Which Product is Right for Me?
As a relates to intravenous vitamin C therapy, many people want to know what type of vitamin C therapy in general, and which formulation of IVtoGo is the better option for their case. This is a short exposition on the two products and the advantages of each, in the context of what you may be dealing with.

Firstly, the original IVtoGo therapy is a very versatile therapy closely modeled off of a 25 g IV vitamin C cocktail. Essentially, it is designed for everything except cancer. (For cancer, see "C-Max", below.) As with most quality 25 g IVs, it contains glutathione and several B vitamins in addition to the vitamin C for reasons of their synergy with vitamin C and their ability to help it work better. The IVtoGo therapy is extremely effective for detoxification, battling acute infections such as pneumonia coronavirus etc., and is an excellent immune system normalizer and strengthener. As liposomes of this type achieve excellent uptake into the lungs, it has shown outstanding anecdotal effect in upper respiratory infections. Therefore it’s a very versatile therapy - just as IV infusions at the 25 g level are. The IV therapy upon which IVtoGo is modeled is given in naturopathic clinics worldwide, due to this extreme versatility.

C-Max max therapy works quite differently to IVtoGo, in spite of the fact that it also contains high-dose vitamin C.  This difference hinges on vitamin K3. Vitamin K3, also known as menadione, works oxidatively. This is extremely important for cancer.  Typical IV vitamin C infusions given for cancer must contain 50 g of vitamin C or more precisely because the goal is to achieve oxidative effect.  (Vitamin C can act oxidatively through the formation of hydrogen peroxide, but only at extremely high doses.) One of the many advantages of C-Max is that a more modest, gentler dose of vitamin C can achieve oxidative therapy because of the presence of vitamin K3. The other additional compound in C-Max besides vitamin K3 is alpha lipoic acid.  Lipoic acid, together with vitamin K3, have been shown to greatly enhance vitamin C‘s cancer killing capabilities, and, as a very important secondary benefit, the three compounds make cancer cells far more visible to the immune system. In summary, C-Max is a cancer specific therapy that works very differently from IVtoGo.

Whatever your particular health challenge, there’s a strong likelihood that it can be effectively addressed, to at least a significant degree, by the inclusion of either IVtoGo or C-Max in your ongoing strategy. While they both contain vitamin C, it’s crucial to understand the differences between the two; but it’s quite simple: for all cancer types, C max is a bespoke therapy, highly potent, and unique in the oral supplement market. For most other health challenges IVtoGo is the preferred option, thanks to its antioxidant, detoxifying, and infection-attacking profile.
