Vitamin C is one of those antioxidants that pushers of drugs love to say does nothing good, despite hundreds of studies to the contrary. Now the naysayers are turning orange and purple with envy. A new study following 20,000 people ages 40-79 from the United Kingdom found that after a decade those with the highest levels of vitamin C in their blood had a 42% decreased risk for stroke.
Immediately, anti-vitamin C propaganda was launched due to the fact that no combination of overly-prescribed cardiovascular medications can make this claim. No matter how much spin is attempted, the facts are the facts. Of course vitamin C works synergistically with other antioxidants. Of course a higher level of vitamin C means the person’s overall antioxidant network is working better. And of course vitamin C levels in the blood can be raised by eating fresh fruit and taking dietary supplements that contain vitamin C and other synergistic antioxidants.
