Vitamin C

Type II Diabetes.

Clinical Study Title:
Ascorbic acid reduces blood pressure and arterial stiffness in type 2 diabetes.

Plain English Summary:
This study looked at the role of vitamin C supplementation on type II diabetes. A total of 30 participants with type II diabetes were given either a daily supplement of vitamin C or a placebo. Heart functioning was measured in all participants before treatment, and 4 weeks later. The vitamin C group had lowered their diastolic and systolic blood pressure at the conclusion of the study. These participants also had improved stiffness in their arteries. Since high blood pressure is a big risk for people with type II diabetes, the use of vitamin C supplementation is a cost effective way to help control blood pressure.
