Vitamin C Deficiency Linked to Pneumonia

Over the past 70 years, physicians have noticed the association between vitamin C deficiency and pneumonia – a serious health condition that claims over 50,000 lives a year. Pneumonia is inflammation of the lung caused by bacterial or viral infection, in which the air sacs fill with puss and may become solid. This infection can affect one lung or both lungs, resulting in double pneumonia.

Pneumonia is generally more serious when it affects older adults, infants and young children, those with chronic medical conditions, or those with weakened immune function.

While antibiotics can treat pneumonia by controlling the bacterial or fungal infection, it’s important to remember preventative actions that can boost your immunity and help fight fatigue naturally. Vitamin C can help defend against sickness and protect your body from infectious disease. It was found that vitamin C significantly reduces your risk to pneumonia by up to 80 percent.

One study has found that a dosage of vitamin C ranging from 500 to 1600 milligrams a day in pneumonia patients cut their hospital duration by a third. This means vitamin C levels decline with illness, making supplementation a must. The fastest and most affective way to increase your vitamin C intake is through our infusions.
