Covid19: Supplements – Vitamin C
The compilations of comments to Chris Martenson’s videos has been updated to include those from 1/23/2020 to 3/9/2020 and have been moved to this dedicated site:
You can find all three of the megathreads as we are calling them, there on the first page.
In addition, we are beginning to go through those earlier compilations and collect them into subject specific mini-threads. You can see these by clicking on the Blog link at the top of the page.
In addition, you can receive these files as a download by sending me a PM (click the small link in the top right of this post). Please include your email.
Feel free to ask questions about these subjects either here on Peak Prosperity, or in the comments on the other site.
Based on what I’ve read here, I am currently taking these supplements daily:
– Centrum Silver Multivitamin – 1 tablet
– Vitamin C (500mg) – 2x daily (morning and evening)
– Vitamin D3 (125 mcg – 5000 IU) – 1x daily (morning)
– Calcium (1000mg), Magnesium (400mg), Zinc (15mg), as one tablet – 1x daily (daily) (morning)
– N-Acetyl-L-Cyseteine (NAC) (600 mg) – 1x daily (morning)
I’m fairly healthy for being 62, though I’m about 20 lbs over weight. No pre-existing conditions.
Leaving aside the discussion of the non-Vitamin C supplements (for other threads), I split the Vitamin C because I read here:
Fridolin: Vitamin C
Two thoughts regarding vitamin C: especially for high dosages it is recommended to use buffered vitamin C. The regular stuff is really acid and hard on your stomach. Your body is able to metabolize not more than 150mg/hour. if you take 1000mg at once, most of it will be flushed out without use after the first hour. thus time-released capsules are recommended.
I was planning on doubling that to 2000 mgs (four tablets of 500mg) probably next week.
Thoughts and opinions?
Thanks for your amazing work. My approach is very similar.
For my family I prepared the following while the #of official infected in the neighbourhood < 10:
- vitamin D3, 75mg, once a day
- vitamin C, a complex including bioflavonoids, potassium, zinc and magnesium, twice a day
- selenium with zinc, once a day
- elderberry sirup one spoon, once a day
Unfortunately they refuse to take it because they are “not afraid”.
When we have more infections in the neighborhood, the dose will be increased. In the case of symptoms, the dose will be upped, and NAC will be included, vitamin C will be partly replaced by vitamin c powder and glutathione will be added to negate the depletion of glutathione due to some specific pain killers (see link below). I know that NAC is a precursor of glutathione, but the combination of NAC and glutathione seems to work “Moreover, when NAC is given along with vitamin C and glutathione, the results have been more striking than when any of these substances is given alone. “, see 2nd link. We are relatively young and healthy, so I hope that this will suffice to fight it the infection.
Liposomal vitamin C is much more absorbable !!! look it up . You can make it with buffered ascorbic powder and sunflower lecithin I mix it with distilled water and mix it in a ultrasonic jewelry cleaner .
Here is a good place to get info : https://qualityliposomalc.com/
here is a simple way and how i make mine :
go to you tube and search for : How to Make Excellent Homemade Liposomal Vitamin C (UPDATED)
Thanks for the link and info!
My list is pretty much the same as DaveDD. Some comments :
Vitamine C is available as time released pills. They release slowly. If not infected 3 times 1000 milligrams. If trouble starts i already used 8 times a day. You know pretty much you’ll have enough if you getting diarree.
Do not forget Iodine and fish oil and mushrooms.
Vitamine D 250 micrograms (10000 IU) per day. If infected up to 3750 micrograms (150.000 IU) per day for three days. I know, that is a lot.
Our approach is very similar for preventative — daily C, D, Zinc, Magnesium, Omega 3s, Turmeric, and NAC. Recently added Monolaurin and drinking green tea before bed.
Rotating other natural antivirals M/W/F (Elderberry, Garlic), T/TH (Olive Leaf Extract), SAT/SUN (1-2 drops of oregano in the green tea).
If we do get sick, will mega dose vitamin C (liposomal for at least the first 24hrs), increase vitamin D, and increase the natural antivirals to max daily recommended dosages. Will drop the elderberry due to concern over cytokine storm.
There has been no study or evidence supporting that vitamin C supplements help to prevent COVID-19. But taking in additional nutrients through health supplements apart from a balanced diet may help boost our immune systems. Vitamin C is rich in antioxidant activity, which decreases inflammation reflecting to improve our immune function system. I have been taking vitamin supplements ever since the pandemic because I have comparatively low immunity.
