(NaturalHealth365) As the coronavirus continues to spread, so does the misinformation surrounding this health crisis. No doubt, if you’ve been watching the mainstream news, it’s difficult to differentiate between what’s real and what’s “fake news.” But, the saddest part of all this is: while people are panicking about the spread of COVID-19, there’s been little coverage of what scientists are studying for the treatment of this virus – especially as it relates to IV vitamin C.
Many people will be surprised to discover that it’s been reported that intravenous (IV) vitamin C is being used throughout China to help combat the COVID-19 coronavirus. Not only is it being used for treatment, but it’s being used for prevention, too!
In fact, three new IV vitamin C research studies have been approved to allow medical professionals and scientists to take a better look at how vitamin C is working in patients affected by the virus.
IV vitamin C studies look promising, but Big Pharma-controlled media outlets BLOCK the news
Currently, three different studies have been approved in China on the use of IV vitamin C to help fight the coronavirus. The first approved study included giving between 12,000 and 24,000 milligrams a day of IV vitamin C, with the doctor involved urging the use of vitamin C to help prevent COVID-19 as well.
On February 13, another clinical trial involving IV vitamin C was announced within China. In this study, the plan is to give 6,000 mg per day for moderate cases and 12,000 mg per day for more severe cases. The heads of this study also noted that they’d like to see studies done on oral vitamin C as well since it can be applied to even more patients and those who are still at home.
Yet another research trial on intravenous vitamin C for the treatment or coronavirus was announced on February 21. Reporting on these new studies, Dr. Richard Cheng noted that vitamin C is also promising for the prevention of COVID-19.
While people have died from the outbreak, there’s been little reporting on the use of large doses of IV vitamin C. Vitamin C is involved in not only killing viruses but the prevention of virus replication, which can reduce the severity of the virus on patients.
Of course, it’s not surprising that the media has labeled vitamin therapy as “false” information. In fact, hospital-based, physician-directed use of IV vitamin C has been discredited, marginalized, or completely suppressed.
Protecting yourself with higher levels of vitamin C
While medical science continues to obsessively search for a drug or vaccine “solution,” vitamin C already exists as a clinically-demonstrated, plausible method for preventing and treating COVID-19. And, although it may be difficult to have access to IV vitamin C, you can protect yourself against the virus by increasing your oral intake of vitamin C – in both powder and liposomal forms.
In addition, go ahead and increase your intake of foods that contain vitamin C, such as organic papayas, asparagus, broccoli, and red peppers. However, keep in mind, you will likely need much higher amounts of vitamin C to reap those antiviral benefits.
And if you think you’re already getting sick, vitamin C gets depleted when the body begins its inflammatory response. A supplement is likely the best option to get the amount of vitamin C you need. So, when feeling sick, aim for an “initial” amount of 3,000 – 6,000 mg to give your body the boost it needs.
And, remember, the sicker you are, the more vitamin C you’ll need – throughout the day – to counter the negative effects of oxidative stress caused by free radicals.

Coronavirus solution: Shanghai government recommends vitamin C for COVID-193
by: Jonathan Landsman | March 4, 2020
NaturalHealth365) Remember the other day, we reported on three clinical trials being done in China to see how vitamin C would affect coronavirus patients? Well, it’s official: the government of Shanghai, China is openly admitting that vitamin C is helping to reduce the symptoms experienced by coronavirus patients.
Naturally, we all know that pharmaceutical interests – here in the United States – will never popularize this “action step” in the face of a growing (viral) health crisis. They would rather focus on the possibility of greater restrictions on personal freedom, quarantines, and (of course) the need for vaccine development. Fear mongering and maintaining a strong support of (toxic) drug usage seems to be the only areas of interest for conventionally-trained sick care “professionals.”
But, today, we release an official announcement from the Orthomolecular Medicine News Service that we hope will be shared far and wide.
Shanghai Government Officially Recommends Vitamin C for COVID-19
Written by Andrew W. Saul
(OMNS Mar 3, 2020) The government of Shanghai, China has announced its official recommendation that COVID-19 should be treated with high amounts of intravenous vitamin C. (1) Dosage recommendations vary with severity of illness, from 50 to 200 milligrams per kilogram body weight per day to as much as 200 mg/kg/day.
These dosages are approximately 4,000 to 16,000 mg for an adult, administered by IV. This specific method of administration is important, says intravenous therapy expert Atsuo Yanagisawa, MD, PhD, because vitamin C’s effect is at least ten times more powerful by IV than if taken orally. Dr. Yanagisawa is president of the Tokyo-based Japanese College of Intravenous Therapy. He says, “Intravenous vitamin C is a safe, effective, and broad-spectrum antiviral.”

Richard Z. Cheng, MD, PhD, a Chinese-American specialist physician, has been working closely with medical and governmental authorities throughout China. He has been instrumental in facilitating at least three Chinese clinical IV vitamin C studies now underway. Dr. Cheng is presently in Shanghai continuing his efforts to encourage still more Chinese hospitals to implement vitamin C therapy incorporating high oral doses as well as C by IV.
Dr. Cheng and Dr. Yanagisawa both recommend oral vitamin C for prevention of COVID-19 infection.
An official statement from Xi’an Jiaotong University Second Hospital (2) 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).”
Why do U.S. media outlets continue to ignore the positive effects of vitamin C?
The answer is obvious. Time and again, whenever a safe and effective (natural) remedy is presented for a particular illness or condition – it’s immediately marginalized or “discredited.” And, we’re always reminded to “follow the (drug) advice” of our doctors. This is all about pharmaceutical industry control over our sick care system.
But, instead of getting angry, we – at NaturalHealth365 – strongly encourage all of our readers to seek out more information that will empower you to make informed decisions about your own health.
By the way, I (personally) do not routinely get IV vitamin C treatments. But, if I were infected with the coronavirus – I would immediately get it done.
My “normal” routine is to mix vitamin C powder with water or my greens drink – every morning and some more C throughout the day, depending on how I feel. In addition, as an added immune system boost, I take 1 – 2 teaspoons of liposomal vitamin C for increased absorption into my cells.
Please note: this is just my personal routine. Everyone has a unique situation and, if you’re not feeling well, you should always seek out the guidance of a well-trained, experienced (integrative) healthcare provider.
Don’t forget, a strong immune system is the ultimate defense against any dis-ease – especially the threat of bacterial or viral infections. Stay well hydrated, get a good amount of rest, keep physically active, eat well (organic fresh food, as much as possible) and be sure to take plenty of vitamin C – every day.
