China is conducting a clinical trial of 24,000 mg/day of intravenous vitamin C to treat patients with coronavirus and severe respiratory complications. Participants will receive IV vitamin C for 7 days straight at Zhongnan Hospital of Wuhan University. Fifty tons of vitamin C has already been delivered to Wuhan, China.
An official statement from Xi’an Jiaotong University Second Hospital reads:
“On the afternoon of February 20, 2020, another 4 patients with severe new coronaviral pneumonia recovered from the C10 West Ward of Tongji Hospital. In the past 8 patients have been discharged from hospital. . . [H]igh-dose vitamin C achieved good results in clinical applications. We believe that for patients with severe neonatal pneumonia and critically ill patients, vitamin C treatment should be initiated as soon as possible after admission. . .[E]arly application of large doses of vitamin C can have a strong antioxidant effect, reduce inflammatory responses, and improve endothelial function. . . Numerous studies have shown that the dose of vitamin C has a lot to do with the effect of treatment. . . [H]gh-dose vitamin C can not only improve antiviral levels, but more importantly, can prevent and treat acute lung injury (ALI) and acute respiratory distress (ARDS).”
Richard Z. Cheng, MD, PhD, a Chinese-American specialist physician, has been working closely with medical and governmental authorities throughout China. Here’s what he has to say about Vitamin C.
“We need to broadcast a message worldwide very quickly: Vitamin C (small or large dose) does no harm to people and is the one of the few, if not the only, agent that has a chance to prevent us from getting, and can treat, COVID-19 infection. When can we, medical doctors and scientists, put patients’ lives first?” (Richard Z. Cheng, MD, PhD, International Vitamin C China Epidemic Medical Support Team Leader)
When it comes to viruses as well as disease in general, Vitamin C is essential. A lack of Vitamin C has been long known to increases susceptibility to viruses. Unfortunately, we just don’t get enough in our daily diets and the absorption rate of most Vitamin C supplements is pretty low, meaning, you’re basically paying for expensive urine. One way to get nearly 100% absorption rate is to deliver the vitamin directly to your bloodstream through an IV.
In one study, a mere 200 mg of vitamin C/day resulted in an 80% decrease in deaths among severely ill, hospitalized respiratory disease patients.*
Vitamin C plays a large part in supporting adrenal glands, maintaining energy levels, strengthening tendons and bones, along with boosting you immune system. Many studies have found it to be very beneficial for cancer patients as well. Learn more about Denali’s Vitamin C IVs as well as a high-dose Vitamin C powder supplement that we recommend.
Orthomolecular Medicine News suggests that the coronavirus pandemic can be dramatically slowed, or stopped, with the immediate widespread use of high doses of vitamin C.
