Common Vitamin TARGETS Killer Sepsis
Modern medicine has come a long way when it comes to fighting infections.
But sepsis is a different story.
Sepsis occurs when your body has an extreme inflammatory response to an infection. This overreaction can lead to tissue damage, organ failure, and death.
It’s a serious condition that kills about 170,000 people a year and accounts for up to 50 percent of all hospital deaths.
And while doctors can try to control the damage with various drugs, there’s NO APPROVED MEDICINE that specifically targets sepsis.
Now, researchers finally identified something that’s having REMARKABLE results in fighting this killer—and a form of it could be sitting in your medicine cabinet right now.
Lots of folks take a vitamin C supplement. You may even be one of them.
A pH-balanced form of the nutrient, called sodium ascorbate, lowers the vitamin’s acidity. This ultimately helps your body absorb it more efficiently while also allowing it to stay in your body longer.
It turns out that these qualities could transform plain old vitamin C into sepsis’s kryptonite.
For this first trial, 30 patients receiving intensive care treatment for sepsis were given either a placebo or sodium ascorbate by IV.
Those receiving this form of vitamin C had…
- improved kidney function,
- required less noradrenaline treatment to restore blood pressure levels, and
- showed signs of better organ function.
This trial followed a preclinical study showing that high doses of sodium ascorbate safely led to RECOVERY in just 3 hours!
The next step is a nationwide trial of hospital patients.
It’s not the first time we’ve seen vitamin C be successfully used against sepsis either.
In an earlier trial, researchers administered the vitamin by IV to intensive care patients for four days. There was an 80 percent plunge in mortality as a result.
I’m hopeful that this simple, safe treatment could be the answer to sepsis we’ve been looking (and praying) for.

Scientists have been searching in vain for a CURE for Alzheimer’s disease. While some drugs may help lessen symptoms in the short term, scientists aren’t even close to a cure.

Just because something is common, it DOESN’T make it safe. And neither does “being natural” mean it’s okay for everyone. This is true of anything—including supplements.
