A new study suggests that even at high doses Zinc and vitamin C don’t help patients fight off Covid-19. The first random trial, where in patients were given supplements under medical supervision, found that unlike other common illness these long-trusted aids do nothing to alleviate Covid-19.
The findings of the study were so stunningly unimpressive the study was stopped early. Researchers said that the two popular immunity supplement “didn’t live up to their hype.”
The study gave high doses of each supplement and in combination to three groups of 200 some adults in recovery at home. A fourth control group were given standard care without supplements.
The study was published in JAMA Network Open.
