ANTI-AGING TIP OF THE DAY
Antioxidant supplements (Vitamin A, C, E, and selenium) protect cells by neutralizing free radicals, atomic fragments that cause cellular destruction and produce metabolic waste.
Vitamin C raises "good" cholesterol (HDL), and prevents "bad" cholesterol (LDL) from oxidation, which subsequently prevents the build-up of athlerosclerotic plaques on the blood vessel wall that contribute to cardiovascular disease. In a study by University of California-Los Angeles School of Health, men who took vitamin C daily had a 45% lower risk of heart attack than men whose intake was less than the U.S. RDA. Vitamin C has also been found to lower the risk of stroke. In one study, men who had relatively low blood levels of vitamin C were 2.4-times more likely to have a stroke than men with the highest blood levels of the nutrient. In a separate study, women who took supplemental Vitamin C over a ten-year period were 77% less likely to develop lens opacities, the beginning stage of cataracts (as compared to women who didn't take supplementary vitamin C).
Therapeutic Daily Dose: 1,000-2,000mg depending on your need . Some medical conditions preclude vitamin C supplementation, check with your doctor.
