Vitamin C reduces Inflammation markers (C-Reactive Protein)

The study led by Block, currently online and scheduled to appear in the Jan. 1 issue of the journal Free Radical Biology and Medicine, shows that for healthy, non-smoking adults with an elevated level of CRP, a daily dose of vitamin C lowered levels of the inflammation biomarker after two months compared with those who took a placebo. However, participants who did not start out with elevated CRP levels saw no benefit from vitamin C supplementation.

    This is not a perfect study since it is a short study but it is a start on seeing how certain nutrients can be quite protective. Most nutrients have been found to be more effective and less harmful if consumed in whole foods. Animal foods lack vitamin C.

    Possibly more evidence that needs to be examined but lower stroke risk. My 92 year old grandmother takes 500 mlg or vitamin C daily.
