was found to be as effective as oral anti-hypertensive medication in one study
can inhibit blood clot formation by about 35%
dilates blood vessels in the brain and is currently being researched as a treatment after a stroke
is one of the few safe treatments for hypertension in pregnancy
is used as a treatment for some types of arrhythmias (irregular heartbeat)
is likely to be even more effective than oral magnesium in its ability to improve heart cell function, cardiac output and vascular tone!
Intravenous vitamin C:
reduces inflammation inside the blood vessels by reducing oxidative stress
protects the inner lining (endothelial layer) of the blood vessels
may help prevent damage to the heart muscle after a heart attack
shown to help prevent oxidative damage caused by being on oxygen therapy
helps improve blood vessel functioning in untreated sleep apnea
increases nitric oxide availability and helps dilate blood vessels
helps “re-set” the baroreceptors that are responsible for blood pressure control
confers many benefits not seen with oral vitamin C!
