This is not new since vitamin C has been known to behave as an antiviral for decades. Yesterday a functional doctor explained how it works but this came to me today from the Zielinski's who have contributed to summits because of their expertise in essential oils.
"We just read in the news that China is currently treating Coronavirus COVID-19 with Intravenous Vitamin C and it appears to be working...
According to Johns Hopkins University, nearly 60% of all people infected with COVID-19 have fully recovered & this number is climbing rapidly. In China, where the virus was first detected a few months ago, the number of new infections continued to dwindle. That's great news!
Also, several studies are currently under way in China to see if high doses of vitamin C can help fight off coronavirus. Scientists at Wuhan University are testing its effects on 120 patients who have the virus, giving them daily doses of 24g of vitamin C for seven days.
According to Dr Thomas Levy, a U.S. cardiologist and author of Primal Panacea, a new book about the uses of vitamin C, research has proven that vitamin C has worked against every virus — if given in sufficient concentration." And this is exactly what China is trying to determine."
In the meantime...

"While we wait for research to confirm the proper dose, our family is loading up on lyposomal vitamin C as a precaution - just like we do every flu season.
There's definitely no way we can consume the amount of vitamin C that we need to ward off viruses, which is why so many people are racing to their local grocery and online stores to stock up on supplements.
(They promote Purathrive brand)"
I am not so sure about that.
Yesterday listening to a functional doctor discuss taking vitamin C to fight disease he also began saying intravenous is the best way for intake. He said that he would use high doses of liposomal C which also may not be practical for us but this is the way I first learned it........... with plain ascorbic acid crystals. One teaspoon is about one gram which you take every hour with lots of water throughout the day. Once you get enough in the bloodstream it will be attracted to cells where it will act. He explained it more scientifically and warned you will have loose stools by the end of it so flush that virus down the toilet!
