IV Vitamin C After Surgery

IV Vitamin C Used After Surgery

Vitamins are essential body nutrients that can be obtained from the diet and as supplement manufactured by approved labs. We required an adequate amount of vitamin for our daily day to day activities as they are necessary for different body functions. Similarly, in case of any surgery or wound healing recovery stage, the need for vitamins becomes crucial and important. So the vitamin should be given through such a route that they can easily, readily and fully reach the systemic circulation for proper action. The intravenous administration of vitamins is required in the postoperative period after surgery or anesthesia, to supply and maintain an adequate nutritional state to get faster recovery, preventing malnutrition and able to get back to a healthy lifestyle.


Vitamin C: Vitamin C is also known as ascorbic acid, an essential nutrient that occurs naturally in fruits and vegetables. Vit C is a water-soluble vitamin and due to this fact, it can’t be stored in the human body. A proper amount of Vit C is necessary for the healthy state of bones, blood vessels and skin.
