3 Ways Vitamin C Supports Your Immune System

The Flu season can be a great reminder of how large of a role your immune system plays in fighting against bacterial and viral infections. This is why it is important to ensure that your immune system has all the energy and vitamins it needs in order to properly function. Vitamin C is a vital nutrient that the body needs in order to combat pathogens that may be threatening your system. Vitamin C deficiencies can lead to a poor immune system, reduced ability to heal wounds, and can develop into much more serious conditions like scurvy. At Infuze MD we provide an intravenous vitamin C therapy that gives your body the nutrients it needs, that may be lost in food due to farming and pollution. Here are three ways that vitamin C can help support your immune system:

1. Vitamin C Acts As an Antioxidant

An antioxidant is a substance that removes potentially damaging oxidizing agents in your body. Vitamin C acts as an antioxidant by protecting cells from harmful oxidants that could damage them. In turn, this helps aid in the immune response and reduces the risk of contracting infectious diseases.1

2. Vitamin C Helps Your Skin Block Pathogens

Skin acts as your first defensive barrier against external pathogens. While most people seek treatments that improve the appearance of the skin, it is important to ensure the health of your skin so it can better protect against pathogens. Vitamin C helps your skin protect against infection by helping enhance your skins ability to seek out oxidants and therefore relieves oxidative stress.2 Vitamin C also helps with the production of collagen, which promotes wound healing.

3. Vitamin C Helps Combat Disease

Did you ever wonder growing up why your mom’s cure all for the common cold was orange juice? Studies have shown that vitamin C plays a key role in supporting immune cell function. One example of this is neutrophil cells, which are a type of white blood cell. Neutrophils serve as temporary responders to combat inflammation, and have been shown to depend on vitamin C for survival and function.3

For example, in one study conducted in China on potential treatments for COVID-19, patients suffering from severe coronary pneumonia have recovered after a high dose vitamin C therapy: “In a further development, the Shanghai Medical Association (SMA) in China has published a consensus on the comprehensive treatment of coronavirus disease. Based on the study of more than 300 clinical patients and developed by 30 experts in the treatment of new coronavirus pneumonia, it recommends high-dose vitamin C for even light infection with the virus.”4
