Vitamin C Supplementation and Common Cold Symptoms: Problem with Inaccurate Reviews

Vitamin C has been shown to reduce common cold symptoms for years after being out-and-coming, indicating that the vitamin has physiologic effects on colds. Vitamin C is ineffective against colds, according to the most recent edition of the RDA nutritional guidelines. Vitamin C could have cold-related effects on colds, according to the second purpose. The second purpose is to provide potential scientific explanations for the persistent resistance to the belief that vitamin C might have cold-fighting abilities. Although placebo-controlled studies have shown that vitamin C does alleviate common cold symptoms, many important questions remain.

Vitamin C and the common cold: a retrospective analysis of Chalmers' review

1858181 PMID Abstract in 1975 Thomas Chalmers investigated the possible effect of vitamin C on the common cold by calculating the average difference in the duration of cold episodes in vitamin C and control groups in seven placebo-controlled studies. In the vitamin C groups, episodes were 0. 11 +/- 0. 24 days shorter, and he concluded that there were no valid studies to show that vitamin C is helpful in the treatment of the common cold. For example, Chalmers did not consider the amount of vitamin C used in the studies, but included in his meta-analysis was a study in which only 0. 025-0. 05 g/day of vitamin C was administered to the test subjects. Vitamin C decreased the duration of the cold episodes by 0. 93 +/- 0. 22 days in the study, according to the relative decrease in the episode duration was 21%.

Use Of Vitamin C, Vitamin D and Zinc Supplements To Avoid COVID-19 Infection

COVID-19 directly impacts the immune system because it causes a systemic inflammation response or cytokine release syndrome in many patients. People have added vitamins and minerals with well-structured immunomodulatory properties to their daily diets to shield the immune system's response in the case of COVID-19. The effects of vitamins and minerals as nutritional supplements on COVID-19 therapy are limited, and clinical trials are ongoing. In this research, the effects of vitamins D, C, and Zinc on human health and daily in take limits are discussed.

The clinical effects of vitamin C supplementation in elderly hospitalised patients with acute respiratory infections

Abstract: A randomised double-blind trial involving vitamin C/placebo supplementation was conducted on 57 elderly patients admitted to hospital with acute respiratory infections. Patients were screened clinically and biochemically on admission and again at 2 and 4 weeks after admission, with either 200 mg vitamin C per day or placebo. Even in the presence of acute respiratory disease, this modest oral dose resulted in a significant rise in plasma and white cell vitamin C levels. Those starting the trial were particularly sick, with several of whom had extremely low plasma and white cell vitamin C concentrations on admission, as shown by the above. Vitamin C may have a variety of ways that may help this type of patient. Vitamin C supplementation in elderly hospitalized patients with acute respiratory infections is a chronic respiratory disease epidemic.

Vitamin C Supplementation and the Common Cold: Was Linus Pauling Right or Wrong?

Vitamin C, Linus Pauling's 1970 Linus Pauling, said that vitamin C helps prevents and alleviates the common cold's episodes. Pauling was correct in concluding from trials published up to date that vitamin C does have biological effects on the common cold in general, but he was cautious about the amount of benefit. His quantitative findings were based on a single placebo-controlled trial of schoolchildren in a skiing camp in the Swiss Alps, which saw a significant decrease in common cold prevalence and duration in the group administered 1 g/day of vitamin C. Nevertheless, Pauling's finding that vitamin C has physiological effects on the common cold is of utmost importance, considering that the only physiological action of vitamin C on human beings is to prevent scurvy.
