Vitamin C & Blood Pressure
A study published in January’s Nutrition Journal discovered that vitamin C plays a significant role in lowering and regulating blood pressure. This is especially important because elevated blood pressure affects nearly 60% of American adults and is
precursor for top killers, such as heart disease and stroke.
The 10-year study involved 242 women between the ages of 18 and 21 years old. Researchers discovered that blood pressure, both the systolic and diastolic (top and bottom reading), was inversely associated with vitamin C levels. Women with the highest levels of vitamin C ate diets rich in fruits and vegetables and/or took vitamin supplements.
Lowering blood pressure in healthy young adults may lead to lower blood pressure in older adults, reducing the risk of age-associated vascular problems. Some of the richest sources of vitamin C include brussels sprouts, sweet peppers, black currants, broccoli, kale, and turnip greens.
