Published Research and Articles on Vitamin C as a Consideration for Pneumonia, Lung Infections, and the Novel Coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2/COVID-19)
by Graham Player, PhD, Andrew W. Saul, Damien Downing, MBBS, MRSB and Gert Schuitemaker, PhD
(OMNS Mar 22, 2020) In 1936 Gander and Niederberger found that vitamin C lowered fever and reduced pain in pneumonia patients. Also in 1936, Hochwald independently reported similar results. In 1946 Slotkin further reported that “Vitamin C has been used routinely by the general surgeons in the Millard Fillmore Hospital, Buffalo, as a prophylactic against pneumonia, with complete disappearance of this complication.”
It is one thing to be sick from a virus and another thing entirely to die from a viral-instigated disease. A 1994 randomised double-blind trial involving vitamin C/placebo supplementation was conducted on 57 elderly patients admitted to hospital with acute respiratory infections (bronchitis and bronchopneumonia).
Using a clinical scoring system based on major symptoms of the respiratory condition, patients supplemented with the vitamin fared significantly better than those on placebo. This was particularly the case for those commencing the trial most severely ill, many of whom had very low plasma and white cell vitamin C concentrations on admission.
Vitamin C supports your immune system. Vitamin C helps to kill viruses and reduces the symptoms of infection. It’s not a COVID-19 “cure,” but nothing is. It might just save your life, though, and will definitely reduce the severity of the infection. If someone tells you it’s not proven, consider two things:
  • Nothing is proven to work against COVID-19, because it is a new virus
  • Vitamin C has worked against every single virus including influenzas, pneumonia, and even poliomyelitis
In the medical literature, there are more than 64,000 published articles and studies on Vitamin C available at The U.S. National Library of Medicine National Center for Biotechnology Information. Vitamin C is arguably one of the most researched substances in existence. Much of the research is very positive. Ignorance of the research, benefits and use of Vitamin C is not a valid excuse for it not to be used as a therapy, particularly when there are no other known medications available, and it is not likely to cause damage, and the published research is readily accessible for everybody.
Following is a brief selection of articles and research from the medical literature that are educational and helpful in considering the use of Vitamin C.

Strengthening Your Immune System with Natural herbs


According to the book Herbal Antivirals by Stephen Harrod Buhner, the following have either been proven or potentially have benefit against coronavirus type viruses. Covid19 is a new entity and so studies will take some time to complete.

Oil of oregano has been shown in in vitro studies to destroy the coronavirus responsible for SARS, a cousin of Covid 19. Within 20 minutes, 5 million particles per mL were reduced to undetectable levels. The 2003 SARS epidemic had an estimated mortality rate of around 10%. The current death rate of Covid 19 is 1.3% at worst and likely less due to undocumented asymptomatic cases. It is also been shown to inhibit H1N1, herpes simplex virus and other human viral pathogens

Similar to SARS, Covid 19 binds to angiotensin-converting enzyme 2 on the surface of lung, lymph and spleen epithelium. A number of herbs including licorice, Chinese skullcap, horse chestnut, Polygonium (Japanese Knotweed), Elder and interestingly cinnamon, contain compounds that block coronavirus attachment to ACE-2. 

Kudzu (a weed found in abundance in Florida), skullcap, Angelica, Astragalus and Cordyceps mushroom can down regulate TGF-beta, IL-1B and other inflammatory cytokines (cytokine storm) that are responsible for the horrific respiratory deaths with Covid 19.

Ginger is anti-inflammatory. You can juice 1-2 pounds of fresh ginger root (dried ginger powder is not effective), and pour 3-4 ounces of the juice in the mug, refrigerating the rest. Add the juice of one quarter of a lime, a large tablespoon of honey, 1/8 teaspoon of cayenne pepper and 6 ounces of hot water to drink. Can drink 4-6 cups per day.
