SARS-CoV-2 causes acute respiratory distress syndrome. As any other newly emerged viral disease, there are no definite and curative treatments available for the COVID-19 till now, so almost all of the available therapies are designed to support the body against the virus. A healthy and complete nutrition provides the resources to the body’s defense mechanisms. Vitamin C supplementation has shown promising results in the activation of the innate immune system and may protect against respiratory viral diseases. Here, we briefly discuss about its role in critically ill patients, respiratory distress, sepsis and possible role in COVID-19.
