  • Significantly faster availability than with tablets

A clinical vitamin C deficiency can occur due to: 

  • Acute and chronic infections

  • Absorption disorders in the intestines
  • After surgery

Making vitamin C available faster

For a vitamin C deficiency that cannot be remedied through diet, injections or infusions are one way of correcting this deficiency. Vitamin C is absorbed in the small intestine via special transporter molecules and then passed on into the bloodstream. The number of these transporters is limited, which is why only part of the total quantity of vitamin C consumed reaches the bloodstream. Our bodies can absorb much higher levels of vitamin C from an injection or infusion. Such high blood levels cannot be reached through diet and tablets.

The vitamin of life – 3 facts about vitamin C

  • Vitamin C is water soluble which means it cannot be stored.
  • Most animals can use their own metabolism to synthesize large quantities of vitamin C.
  • Humans lost this ability sometime during the course of evolution.

Because your body cannot produce vitamin C itself, it has to be supplied regularly from external sources.
 

Dosage

5 ml ampoule:
Administer 5 ml daily by slow intravenous injection, up to 50 ml solution for injection when added to an infusion.

Vitamin C replacement therapy during parenteral nutrition:
For prophylaxis of vitamin C deficiency during prolonged parenteral nutrition

  • Adults: Administer 100 to 500 mg ascorbic acid per day intravenously. 
  • (corresponds to 0.7 ml to 3.3 ml Pascorbin®).
  • Children: Administer 5 to 7 mg ascorbic acid/kg body weight per day intravenously.

Methaemoglobinaemia in childhood:
A single dose of 500 to 1000 mg ascorbic acid (equivalent to 3.3 ml to 6.6 ml Pascorbin®) should be administered by intravenous injection. If necessary, the same dose can be repeated. A dose of 100 mg/kg body weight per day should not be exceeded.

Do not self-medicate with injections. Injection therapy should be administered by a doctor or an alternative practitioner.

How is a high-dose vitamin C infusion with Pascorbin® 7,5 g administered?
The ascorbic acid in Pascorbin® 7,5 g is highly concentrated. Therefore, the Pascorbin® 7,5 g must be diluted with a suitable carrier solution.
A suitable carrier solution is, for example, 0.9% saline solution. You need at least 100 ml of this saline solution if you want to infuse 50 ml of Pascorbin® 7,5 g. The prepared infusion solution is then administered using an infusion set and a butterfly cannula (or braunule = peripheral venous catheter). 
This type of infusion takes about 20–30 min.

No age limit (dosage restriction for children)
