China is using high doses of vitamin C to treat people

You'll have to translate the page:

If you scroll down to "Treatment plan" you can see in part two they are using high doses of vitamin C for those who have been infected as well as those who are showing any symptoms and the treatment is working well. This doesn't surprise me. Vitamin C is one of those vitamins that gives a huge instant boost to the immune system. My brother was VERY sick a few years back, they had him on a few different drugs that weren't working. His wife said screw it, started giving him 5,000 mg of vitamin C and within a few days, he felt 80% better.

So yeah, while you are doing your social distancing, take some vitamin C as a precaution. If you start to show any signs of a cold or flu, up the dosage. I believe in this kind of healthcare. Waiting for something to happen before you help the body is not a good idea. Ensure it is healthy now.

I don't know where the study is but I know there is one out there for those who have asthma. Vitamin C is great for those who do during every flu season.

No one is going to listen to this because no one trusts the Chinese right now. I don't mean the people but the actual Chinese government. Did you know they have two reporters who are missing and two dead doctors who tried warning people about this virus back in October? Something is not adding up.

While I don't trust what is happening myself, I do know vitamin C is proven to not only speed up recover from flus and colds but it can act as a preventative if you keep your levels stable. Trouble is, most of us don't eat healthy enough to have the right levels and synthetic C is not as good as the real thing.

It's true, people are wary of the Chinese (probably needlessly). But I guess the effectiveness of vitamin C is a long-standing remedy when it comes to viruses. That's not to say it's foolproof, but it boosts immune function and gives people a better shot at fighting off the flu and quite possibly corona too.

Agreed. I mean why not try it? It can't hurt. If I'm not mistaken, it's near impossible to overdose on Vitamin C.

Water-soluble vitamins are safe even at high doses. My friend was quite sick and was taking mega doses for a few days of it, no ill effects. Since the body doesn't store it beyond your needs, it gets rid of the excess so you will know you are taking in too much when you find yourself having bowel issues.

I have heard that high amounts of vitamin C help with many ailments. I know that some people are against it, but I do not think that it is harmful since like you stated they are water-soluble.

Certainly can't hurt to take vitamin c, but I doubt it really helps much with the virus. I mean, I doubt it would stop it in it's tracks or anything like that. The best bet is to stay indoors, keep to social distancing, and go out only when you need to.

Yeah. I remember learning in school about water- and fat-soluble vitamins. The only thing I heard you can get from taking too much is like you said, minor bowel issues which is pretty rare.

I believe in Vitamin C. For the last 20 years I have been using it daily, about 4.000 mg and I cannot remember having the flu.
when I get a bit sniffly sometimes, I double or treble my normal dose and it's usually gone within 24 hours.

I have a mother who will be 92 this year if she makes it. For years she went for the flu shot, got the flu anyhow every season and since the last seven years she uses vitamin C as well in the same dose as I do, stopped taking the flu shot and has not had the flu for the past seven years (touch wood).

So yes, I don't need any scientific evidence, for me it works, period.

Good call man. You know, if we just ate healthier and used supplements like we should, a lot of people would be healthier and happier. I am no saint when it comes to my diet, I can eat some pretty bad stuff but I am working on cleaning it up now.

Vitamin C has been curing people of illness since pirate days. Most people know what it can do and how powerful it is but seldom is it recommended by doctors these days and I think that is because it comes down to money. The pharmaceutical companies need to make their money so they string people along. Sure, some drugs do legit help people stay alive but almost all of them come with side effects that will eventually require another pill... It is a cycle. They don't want us healthy, they want themselves wealthy. They aren't looking to kill us but keep us dependent.

But the issue isn't all on them. It is mostly on us. If we ate healthy diets, exercises, managed stress and got our vitamin levels checked yearly we would not need to be on 5 different pills or struggling with being overweight. There would be no market to monopolize or take advantage of.
