Coronary Heart Disease.

Clinical Study Title:
Vitamin C and risk of coronary heart disease in women.

Plain English Summary:
This study looked at the consumption of vitamin C and its relation to contracting coronary heart disease for women. Previous research in this area has not been able to clarify the role of vitamin C. A total of over 85,000 women were interviewed about their dietary intake, and then a follow up was done years later to track the rate of the disease among these women. Analysis of the women who contracted coronary heart disease suggested that there is a relation between the intake of vitamin C and the risk of coronary heart disease. This was especially true for women who obtained vitamin C through supplements. This suggests that a dietary supplement including vitamin C does help to reduce the risk of coronary heart disease.
