Antioxidants help arteries stay healthy

A recent study uncovered that long-term dietary supplementation with antioxidants has a positive effect on blood sugar levels, as well as blood pressure and artery flexibility. A team of researchers from Wolfson Medical Center in Israel conducted the study with 70 subjects pulled from the center’s hypertension clinic.

“Antioxidant supplementation significantly increased…artery elasticity in patients with multiple cardiovascular risk factors,” researched Reuven Zimilichan said. “This beneficial vascular effect was associated with an improvement in glucose and lipid metabolism as well as significant decrease in blood pressure.”

Subjects were given either an antioxidant supplement or a placebo. By the end of six months, those who received the antioxidants showed more elastic arteries and better blood sugar and cholesterol profiles.

Those looking to increase their intake of antioxidants should consider taking dietary supplements like those offered by Dr. Newton’s Naturals.
