Vitamin C in a Nutshell

If I get any symptoms of a cold or flu or any viral infection I take:

Either a powder or pill giving me a combination of 1 gram of vitamin C, plus 3mg of zinc, plus 50mg of elderberry extract, and I take this EVERY HOUR until symptoms have gone.
Practically, for example during the night, you can double the dose and take every 2 hours.
In most cases symptoms go within 12 to 24 hours. In 24 hours you will have taken 24 grams of vitamin C, 72mg of zinc and 1200mg of black elderberry extract.
This will give you the levels used in these studies. Please note that 24 grams of vitamin C over 24 hours is the same amount being used in the IV study underway on the coronavirus. This amount of vitamin C may give you looser bowels.

For children under age 12, divide dose by body weight. Eg if the child is half your weight halve the dose. As a rough guideline I’d give 250mg a day to children aged 3 to 8 for general health, and 250mg an hour if under viral attack, or up to bowel tolerance level.

Keep yourself hydrated, drink lots of water, ginger tea, keep warm, have hot baths and rest.
