Heart Health & Vitamin C: Foods that Reduce Arterial Inflammation

Lisa Nelson Health Pro
  • 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.
