Vitamin C reduces time in intensive care

New research from scientists in Norway and Australia has shown that vitamin C reduces the amount of time patients spend in intensive care units.

People who are seriously ill require higher vitamin C intake than healthy people, and the study found that doses of vitamin C reduced the time spent in ICU by more than 8%.

The researchers looked at published research covering more than 2000 patients and found that doses of between 1 and 3 grams of vitamin C cut ICU time by an average of 8.6%. In case where patients required mechanical ventilation, vitamin C reduced the need for this ventilation by 18.2%
