Vitamin C in Autoimmune Disease

Effect of high dose intravenous ascorbic acid on the level of inflammation in patients with rheumatoid arthritis Mikirova NA, Rogers AM, Casciari JJ, Taylor PR Modern Research in Inflammation, 2012, 1(2):26-32 (Nov 2012)

• CRP levels in arthritis patients correlate with weight and fat content: obesity was associated with inflammation in these subjects.
• CRP reductions with IVC therapy were more dramatic when the treatments were given more frequently.
