Recent reports from China have indicated that Vitamin C can help combat the Corona Virus that is plaguing the world right now. They are actually treating patients with IV fluids of Vitamin C and suggesting people that don't have the virus take Vitamin C as a preventative. I'm not a doctor or scientist, so do I know without a shadow of a doubt that this works? Nope, I sure don't. But, worst case scenario you've taken something to help boost your immune system. Or more likely: You take Vitamin C, still get sick, and hopefully your immune system is in a better position to help combat that virus and you won't be as sick as you potentially could have been. And best case scenario, you don't get sick! Did I miss a downside? Vitamin C has been used for years and years to boost the immune system. COVID-19 is an attack on the immune system, ie take Vitamin C.
Now, I'm not a doctor or a medical professional. At the end of the day you are the only one that can decide what you're going to do or not do. I've read so many articles and watched so many videos, podcasts, and talks about Vitamin C and it's effectiveness to combat the Corona Virus. There is so much information out there that is constantly getting removed or taken down. So if you have the opportunity, do your research.
"A hospital has reportedly turned to vitamin C as a treatment for the coronavirus, after reports emerged from China that does well in excess of daily Dietary Reference Values (DRV) showed promise." -Will Chu
