Injection Of Vitamin C In Adolescence?
good afternoon, I would like to ask whether vit c inj is safe for adolescents?
Hello Angel, thank you for asking.
Vitamin C injections are generally done in the hope that people can whiten the skin. In fact, there is no scientific research that clearly found a correlation between high doses of vitamin C injection and a decrease in the amount of melanin (a pigment that gives color to the skin, hair, and eyes). Even if there is a decrease in melanin levels in the study subjects, the decrease is not significant and not permanent.
You need to know that the daily dose of vitamin C for adults or young adults, ranges around 100 mg. So when someone injects a high dose of vitamin C into his body, the excess of vitamin C will be removed through the kidneys. No matter how large the dose is injected into the body, the body still will not be able to use vitamin C beyond its daily needs. Also note that although rare, side effects can occur with excess vitamin doses. In water-soluble vitamins such as vitamin C, you should be aware of kidney function, because the kidneys are tasked with filtering excess vitamin C to be excreted in the urine. Thus a brief explanation from us, hopefully useful. Regards.
