  • Absorption disorders in the intestines
  • After operations

Making vitamin C available quicker

In case of a vitamin C deficiency that cannot be remedied through nutrition, infusions are the optimal way to counter the deficiency. Vitamin C is absorbed in the small intestine through special transport molecules and channelled into the blood. The number of these transporters is limited, however, which is why only part of the vitamin C quantity reaches the blood. Through an infusion, much more vitamin C is absorbed by our body. Such high levels in the blood cannot be achieved through nutrition and tablets.

Vitamin of life – 3 facts about vitamin C

  • Vitamin C is water-soluble and can therefore not be stored.
  • Most animals can produce large quantities of vitamin C themselves through the metabolism.
  • Human beings have lost this ability over the course of evolution.

As the body cannot produce vitamin C endogenously it must be supplied from the outside.
