    There is some evidence that under some conditions, vitamin C can boost your immune system.  Theoretically, that could prevent you from catching the virus. 

    At least there's no danger in megadoses of C because it's water-soluble so the excess just flushes out through your kidneys.  So nothing to lose.

    No taking one thousand milligrams will NOT prevent you from catching covid-19. While it MAY help boost the immune system. It will NOT contrary to all of the old wive's tales, and urban myths as well as pseudoscientific claims, that are out there.There's not any solid or validated hard scientific evidence that has been found to support such claims. One thousand milligrams is within the safe range. However taking to much has been known to caused stomach irritation at, and above three thousand milligrams.

    Also as far as Linus Pauling goes, he was NOT the father of vitamin C, since it was discovered when he was about nine years old. Contrary to the claim that was made, that he was the father of Vitamin C. Also vitamin C is not washed out of the system in a mere three hours. Some is actually store in the liver, to be used for things such as helping to absorb iron.

    There is no evidence that any vitamin prevents Covid 19, but there’s no harm in taking it anyway as it is good to take as long as you don’t go over the recommended daily dose.

    Try it, then make sure you come in to contact with everyone possible, and when you get the virus you will know IT DOES NOT WORK!  See you on the other side!

    Vit C is washed out of your system every 3 hours. Once you get a cold it is a hystrogen and makes the cold worse. Take it 3x a day. Once gettig a cold/flu you would need to saturate every cell in your body with a megadose, when you get diarehea you have reached that .colds are gone in an hour. Calcium needs to be taken too so the Vit C is absorbed.Zinc helps protect you from the virus and tonic water.
