No, but taking 1000mg of vitamin C will reduce the symptoms and 1000 IU of vitamin D will help to kill the virus more quickly.

Re: vitamins and the flu

You can also add some Oil of Oregano and Garlic to the mix. Furthermore, zinc lozenges do wonders for helping to prevent to lessen the flu. And finally .. never forget good old-fashioned homemade chicken soup ... no one knows why, but science has proven that it goes a long way in helping to shorten the length of a cold or flu.
