Health Nugget - Higher Vitamin C Associated with Lower Blood Pressure

Posted by Edna & Roger Boisjoli on September 13, 2011 at 1:10 AM

There were 242 participants in a clinical trial that looked at blood pressure and vitamin C blood levels. They were divided into four groups from the lowest to the highest levels of vitamin C in their blood. Blood pressure declined significantly the higher the vitamin C blood levels were. There have been other studies that have shown that blood pressure improves the higher the blood vitamin C is. However, this study gives more evidence for the supplementation with vitamin C even from early adulthood. Block G, et al. Vitamin C in plasma is inversely related to blood pressure. Nutr J. 2008 Dec 17;7-35.
