USES AND BENEFITS OF REDOXON EFF 15 TAB
- Vitamin C deficiency. Taking vitamin C by mouth or injecting as a shot prevents and treats vitamin C deficiency, including scurvy. Also, taking vitamin C can reverse problems associated with scurvy.
- Low levels of red blood cells in people with a long-term illness ( anemia of chronic disease). Taking vitamin C supplements might help manage anemia in people undergoing dialysis.
- Irregular heartbeat. Taking vitamin C for a few days before and after heart surgery helps prevent irregular heartbeat after heart surgery.
- Emptying the colon before a colonoscopy. Before a person undergoes a colonoscopy, the person must make sure that their colon is empty. This emptying is called bowel preparation. Some bowel preparation involves drinking 4 liters of medicated fluid. If vitamin C is included in the medicated fluid, the person only needs to drink 2 liters.
- Common cold. There is some controversy about the effectiveness of vitamin C for treating the common cold. However, most research shows that taking 1-3 grams of vitamin C might shorten the course of the cold by 1 to 1.5 days. Taking vitamin C does not appear to prevent colds.
- Limb pain that usually occurs after an injury (complex regional pain syndrome). Taking vitamin C after surgery or injury to the arm or leg seems to prevent complex regional pain syndrome from developing.
- Skin redness caused by injury or irritation (erythema). Using a skin cream containing vitamin C might decrease skin redness following laser resurfacing for scar and wrinkle removal.
- Airway infections caused by exercise. Using vitamin C before heavy physical exercise, such as a marathon or army training, might prevent upper airway infections that can occur after heavy exercise.
- High Cholesterol. Taking vitamin C might reduce low-density lipoprotein (LDL or “bad”) cholesterol in people with high cholesterol.
- High blood pressure. Taking vitamin C along with medicine to lower blood pressure might help lower systolic blood pressure (the top number in a blood pressure reading) by a small amount. But it does not seem to lower diastolic pressure (the bottom number).
- Lead poisoning. Consuming vitamin C in the diet seems to lower blood levels of lead.
- Reduced benefit of nitrate therapy that happens when nitrates are used all day (nitrate tolerance).
- Pain after surgery. Taking 2 grams of vitamin C by mouth one hour before surgery might reduce pain and the use of pain medication after surgery. Receiving 3 grams of vitamin C by IV during the first 30 minutes of surgery might also help reduce pain.
- Wrinkled skin. Skin creams containing vitamin C seem to improve the appearance of wrinkled skin. A vitamin C patch also seems to help reduce wrinkles.

Vitamin C (ascorbic acid) is a water-soluble vitamin that is thought to have beneficial effects in patients with severe and critical illnesses. It is an antioxidant and free radical scavenger that has anti-inflammatory properties, influences cellular immunity and vascular integrity, and serves as a cofactor in the generation of endogenous catecholamines. Because humans may require more vitamin C in states of oxidative stress, vitamin C supplementation has been evaluated in numerous disease states, including serious infections and sepsis. Because serious COVID-19 may cause sepsis and acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS), the potential role of high doses of vitamin C in ameliorating inflammation and vascular injury in patients with COVID-19 is being studied.
