Scientific Support

  • As an antioxidant, vitamin C is superb at fighting free radicals—one of the main contributors to endothelial dysfunction and LDL cholesterol oxidation. Supplemental vitamin C has been found to support endothelium-dependent activities.[1]
  • A controlled trial found that Vitamin C helps reduce lipid peroxide levels and oxidative stress.[2]
  • Vitamin C supplementation supports the recycling of Vitamin E. A placebo-controlled trial found that vitamin C supplementation increased blood levels of vitamin E. The reverse was also found in that Vitamin E supplementation increased vitamin C levels in the blood.[3]
  • It appears that vitamin C stimulates collagen production at the genetic expression level.[4],[5]
