Vitamin C: A Life-Saving Treatment for Sepsis

Vitamin C may soon be in wide use as a safe and cost-effective treatment for sepsis, a life-threatening illness. Vitamin C can not only prevent the onset of sepsis, but can reverse the disease.

Sepsis is caused by a bacterial infection. In reaction, your immune system goes into overdrive, overwhelming normal processes in your blood. Small blood clots form, blocking blood flow to vital organs, which can lead to organ failure and death.

Eurekalert reports:

“[Currently] patients with severe sepsis have a high mortality rate, nearly 40 percent, because there is no effective treatment.”
