Ascorbic Acid (Vitamin C) Injection

What is Ascorbic Acid or Vitamin C Injection?

Ascorbic Acid, also known as Vitamin C, is found naturally in foods such as citrus fruit, berries, tomatoes, potatoes, and leafy vegetables. Vitamin C injection and IV Vitamin C therapy allows higher concentrations to be provided and absorbed by the body. Our Beverly Hills office provides Vitamin C shots and intravenous treatment for those who desire to receive higher amounts of vitamin c than is possible by ingestion only.
