And even if it were, they could neutralize that acidity by reacting it with a base, like sodium, potassium, calcium, or magnesium, and take it in pill form. Much simpler than an IV drip.

As you know I have read a lot on the subject of Vit C. The oral intravenous ratio is approximately a factor of 8. To get the same effect of 1 gram of intravenous you need to take 8 grams orally. It has also been tested that taking C intravenously is the same as taking it in the muscle. It has also been tested at doses intravenously of up to 300 grams in a 24 hour period without any toxic effect. It has also been observed that doses up to 300 grams act as an anti oxidant but over 300 grams it becomes oxidising.
To ensure oral intake is not excessively acidic I add about 5% baking soda (aluminium free) to the C capsules I make. Each 00 capsule I make has approximately 800 mg of vitamin C. I also add about 5% lysine as an anti viral.
I have the greatest confidence that none of my family will suffer the ill effects of any virus given our C regime.
(I've also heard magnesium ascorbate/ magnesium carbonate if your sodium (salt) levels are too high...)
