Heart Health & Vitamin C: Foods that Reduce Arterial Inflammation
Vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant that reduces arterial inflammation. The more vitamin C in your diet the lower your blood pressure and heart rate. By consuming foods rich in vitamin C, you’ll reduce your risk of heart disease and stroke.
Good sources of vitamin C include:
Oranges, broccoli, red peppers, green peppers, cauliflower, papayas, and asparagus
Supplemental vitamin C is also an option. Aim for 500-1000 mg/day. Discuss all supplements with your MD.
