It is a scientific fact that all viruses that have been investigated can be blocked by specific micronutrients. In particular, vitamin C is known to decrease or completely block the replication of all viruses it is applied to. Even in cells chronically infected with HIV, vitamin C has been shown to reduce viral replication by more than 99 percent.
As early as March 2020, a Chinese medical team reported the successful treatment of coronavirus patients with high-dose vitamin C. In the United States, hospitals in New York state soon reported that they too were successfully treating coronavirus patients with high doses of the vitamin.
It is now clear that vitamin C is the critical nutrient in the pandemic. A placebo-controlled clinical study published in October 2020 documented that high-dose vitamin C greatly reduces mortality at life-threatening stages of COVID-19, cutting the death rate almost in half. Other research has since indicated that high doses of the vitamin may also treat post-viral fatigue and so-called ‘long Covid’.
To read how scientists at the Dr. Rath Research Institute have shown that combining vitamin C with other natural compounds impedes key mechanisms of coronavirus infection and improves its efficacy, see this article on our website.
