Vitamin C may be used to treat potentially deadly blood infection

Researchers at The University of Western Ontario and Lawson Health Research Institute have conducted a study which suggests that vitamin C treatments may be effective in preventing sepsis.

Sepsis can begin as an infection anywhere in the body and affect the immune system, causing many small blood clots to stop blood flow to vital organs. It mostly affects young children and the elderly, but can lead to death even in healthy individuals.

Dr. Karel Tyml, lead study author, said that concentrated doses of vitamin C were able to stop the plugging of capillaries in mice. Furthermore, Tyml said that both early and late treatments of vitamin C were effective, and that benefits lasted for more than 24 hours.

While the study relied on intravenous injections of vitamin C, it suggests that adequate daily intake of the antioxidant may prevent sepsis in individuals.

Taking nutritional supplements – like those offered by Dr. Newton’s Naturals – may be effective in helping people avoid certain types of infection.

CalMax from Dr. Newton’s Naturals contains more than 800 percent of the daily recommended value (RDV) of vitamin C, as well as calcium and magnesium to promote overall health.

Additionally, Super C22 from Dr. Newton’s Naturals contains 2,500 percent RDV of the antioxidant, which may help support the immune system.
