- The Facts: A study published last month in “frontiers in numerology” strongly suggest the combined administration of Vitamin C & Quercetin for Covid-19 patients.
- Reflect On: Why are other drugs and therapies that have shown great promise constantly ignored, and in some cases ridiculed? Why are we being made to believe that the only solution here is a vaccine?
What Happened: A study published last month in Frontiers in Numerology titled “Quercetin and Vitamin C: An Experimental, Synergistic Therapy for the Prevention and Treatment of SARS-CoV-2 Related Disease (COVID-19)” concluded the following:
Quercetin displays a broad range of antiviral properties which can interfere at multiple steps of pathogen virulence -virus entry, virus replication, protein assembly- and that these therapeutic effects can be augmented by the co-administration of vitamin C. Furthermore, due to their lack of severe side effects and low-costs, we strongly suggest the combined administration of these two compounds for both the prophylaxis and the early treatment of respiratory tract infections, especially including COVID-19 patients.
Quercetin is a plant pigment (flavonoid). It is found in many plants and foods, like onions, green tea, apples, berries, American elder, and many others others. Buckwheat tea also has a large amount of quercetin. The study explains:
Quercetin (also known as 3,3′,4′5,7-pentahydroxyflavone) is a widely distributed plant flavonoid, found in several vegetables, leaves, seeds, and grains, where it is conjugated with residual sugars to form quercetin glycosides (8). Studies suggest that quercetin supplementation may promote antioxidant (9), anti-inflammatory, antiviral (10), and immunoprotective effects (11). Quercetin has been studied in various types and models of viral infection due to its promising antiviral effects in inhibiting polymerases (12), proteases (13), reverse transcriptase (14), suppressing DNA gyrase, and binding viral capsid proteins (15, 16).
As far as vitamin C goes, this is not the only study or article to recommend its use when it comes to treating COVID-19. For example, Medicine in Drug Discovery, of Elsevier, a major scientific publishing house, recently published an article on early and high-dose IVC in the treatment and prevention of Covid-19. The article was written by Dr. Richard Cheng, MD, PhD, a US board-certified anti-aging specialist, from Shanghai, China. Dr. Cheng served in the United States Army as a commissioned officer (Major) and an Army physician.
In his article, he states the following:
High-dose intravenous VC has also been successfully used in the treatment of 50 moderate to severe COVID-19 patients in China. The doses used varied between 2 g and 10 g per day, given over a period of 8–10 h. Additional VC bolus may be required among patients in critical conditions. The oxygenation index was improving in real time and all the patients eventually cured and were discharged. In fact, high-dose VC has been clinically used for several decades and a recent NIH expert panel document states clearly that this regimen (1.5 g/kg body weight) is safe and without major adverse events.
According to the new study:
Vitamin C exerts its antiviral properties by supporting lymphocyte activity, increasing interferon-α production, modulating cytokines, reducing inflammation, improving endothelial dysfunction, and restoring mitochondrial function (4–6). There are also suggestions that vitamin C may be directly viricidal (7). These in vitro effects, as we previously discussed (2), constitute a reflection of both the supra-physiological concentrations of ascorbate and the interaction between vitamin C and metal-containing culture media—both of which are pro-oxidant, generating reactive oxygen species.
Obviously the study goes into more details, and potential limitations etc. So be sure to read it for more detail if you’re interested.
The New York post also reported that multiple hospitals in the state were using it and seeing great results. You can read more about that here.
With all of this information emerging, and its continual emergence, mainstream media and fact-checkers began early on claiming that vitamin C can’t really do anything for COVID-19, and that it’s false to suggest it could or that it does. For example, an article published by LiveScience, a mainstream science website claimed that “Vitamin C is extremely unlikely to help people fight off the new coronavirus.”
We are starting to see that this narrative may not be true. So who is fact checking the fact checkers? Why is there an authoritarian fact checker going around patrolling the internet? Is it really to combat misinformation, or to target those sharing information that opposes the given narrative? Edward Snowden, among others, have expressed that governments are using the pandemic to impose more authoritarian measures upon the population without our consent that will remain in place long after the pandemic, similar to the measures that were put in place after 9/11.
Do you think this is true? Why do governments mandate, and not recommend? Is their reasoning sound?
Why This Is Important
In an ideal world during such a pandemic any substance showing promise for treating or curing a disease would be explored by all countries, governments and health organizations around the world, together, openly, and transparently. We have created a world that prevents this from happening, and instead of doing what’s right, our health authorities choose what will be the most profitable and as a result, we don’t end up doing what’s right. Instead, what we see is a massive ridicule campaign about anything showing promise, while simultaneously continue to get hammered with the idea that things can’t be how they were before until we get a vaccine. That being said, do we want to go back to how things were before, or do we want something better?
Are rouge interests taking control of what’s going on here, similar to when a number of CDC scientists told the world that these interests dominate these organizations?
Why do we keep listening to the advice of government health authorities when a large and growing number of people don’t trust their information and medical mandates? With so many examples of fraud and corruption, and shutting down the idea that substances other than a vaccine can actually work, what is really going on here? If there’s one great thing this pandemic has done, it’s been to serve as another catalyst for the mass awakening of humanity.
