According to a recent study published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, consuming large doses of vitamin C may be able to lower blood pressure. Researchers at Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine found that taking an average of 500 milligrams of vitamin C daily could reduce blood pressure by 3.84 millimeters of mercury. This is about five times the recommended daily requirement.
“Our research suggests a modest blood pressure lowering effect with vitamin C supplementation, but before we can recommend supplements as a treatment for high blood pressure, we really need more research to understand the implications of taking them,” explained lead study author, Edgar “Pete” R. Miller III, M.D., Ph.D.
Although researchers are not yet able to provide clear evidence that taking a vitamin may play a significant role in lowering blood pressure, it certainly wouldn’t hurt to take an all-natural supplement from Dr. Newton’s Naturals that offers a wide array of health benefits. Super C22 can help and is also packed with essential vitamins to boost immunity.
