High Vitamin C level helps to prevent stroke‏

Investigators noted that high vitamin C levels may reflect healthy lifestyles and possible supplementation. They followed 20,649 men for nearly 10 years. People with the highest levels of vitamin C had a 42% lower risk of stroke when compared to those with the lowest levels of vitamin C. All other factors were accounted for in this study.

This is just another study that shows that the higher your level of antioxidants and in this case vitamin C, the lower your risk of having a cardiovascular even like a stroke. Eating a healthy diet that contains 6 to 8 servings of fruits and vegetables along with supplementation is certainly a good idea.
