VITAMIN C CAN LOWER BLOOD PRESSURE
Lawrenceville, NJ (Dr Simone) – Vitamin C can lower both systolic and diastolic blood pressure as found in a review of 29 studies published between 1966 to 2011. The median dose was 500 mg per day, the median duration was 8 weeks, and trial sizes ranged from 10 to 120 participants. Although the reductions were modest, ranging from 2-4 mm Hg, vitamin C should be considered as part of the treatment for patients with hypertension.
