With the outbreak of the Corona virus (COVID-19) there is a scramble to find ways to prevent, treat and remediate this virus. Vitamin C has been in limelight, though with mixed press. We wish to dispel the myth that Vitamin C is harmful.
There was a recent news release by Orthomolecular Medicine News entitled News Media Attacks Vitamin C Treatment of COVID-19 Coronavirus – Yet Ascorbate is a Proven, Powerful Antiviral. See link to full article.
In summation the news media attacks on vitamin C are centered on false allegations of dangers with mega doses of Vitamin C (aka Ascorbate) delivered via intervenous therapy. When following protocol, high-dose IV Vitamin C is very safe and effective, delivering anti-viral support and treating symptoms. This therapy is being utilized in China and South Korea with great promise. What is being ignored in these media claims, is the that LOW doses of Vitamin C taken orally can reduce symptoms and death rates. There is evidence in taking 1000mg of vitamin C per day can be effective.
Our recommendation for adults for cold and flu season is 6,000-8,000mg in divided doses per day – 2,000mg, 3 times per day. For kids, 1000mg up to 3 times per day.
We also advise considering IV Vitamin C therapy. At Natura Health and Wellness, we have physicians with extensive training and experience with intravenous nutrient therapy. IV Vitamin C has been a therapy we have been effective utilizing for decades. Please feel free to contact us to schedule an immune supportive IV treatment and/or a consult to develop your personal plan.
