Dr. Thomas Levy on high dose vitamin C for viruses, infections and chronic disease

“Vitamin C is an absolute virucide, that means, in a test tube, if you have a virus and you have vitamin C, the virus is dead.” -Thomas Levy, MD

Dr. Thomas Levy is a board-certified cardiologist and attorney. After practicing cardiology for 15 years, he began to research the enormous toxicity associated with dental work, as well as the pronounced ability of properly administered vitamin C to neutralize this toxicity. Dr. Levy has written 13 books, with several addressing the wide-ranging properties of vitamin C in neutralizing all toxins and resolving most infections, and its vital role in the effective treatment of heart disease and cancer.

Dr. Levy was inducted into the Orthomolecular Medicine Hall of Fame in 2016. He continues researching the impact of the orthomolecular application of vitamin C and antioxidants in degenerative diseases, including heart disease, and is now the Medical Advisor to the U.S. Freedom Flyers Group.

Dr. Levy is a legend in the field of vitamin C as well as the oral connection to most chronic diseases. In our conversation, we discuss the incredible benefits of vitamin C, the root cause of most infections, Dr. Levy’s top 4 supplements to take, three toxic nutrients to avoid, and more.

*Dr. Levy advises to never take calcium ascorbate (See 32:47 in the interview)

A 2020 study found that oral ascorbic acid achieved as much as twice the blood concentration in the first 10 minutes of ingestion as sodium ascorbate and maintained roughly 15-30% higher blood levels over the following 50 minutes.

10 grams of ascorbic acid was also found to achieve as much as twice the blood concentration in the first 10 minutes of ingestion as a 10 gram IV drip and stayed at relatively high levels in the blood, roughly 80% of the levels achieved over the following 50 minutes as the IV blood levels.

A 2021 study found that liposomal vitamin C was 1.77 times more bioavailable than non-liposomal C. However, at approximately $1 dollar per gram, liposomal vitamin C is 25 times more expensive than this non-GMO sodium ascorbate powder. We keep multiple forms on hand. The liposomal packets are nice for traveling. Dr. Levy’s personal experience and opinion is that the clinical benefit of liposomal C may be much greater, but there is no study measuring the clinical benefit of different forms of vitamin C to date.
