Vitamin C and Hypercholesterolemia
Hipercholesterolemia prevention can be achieved by lifestyle changes, a diet rich in vitamins and low in saturated fat and nutraceutical compounds.
Hypercholesterolemic people require a higher amount of antioxidants to reduce the oxidation level. Today, more than 40 orthomolecular substances have been tested and proven to aid peoples suffering from hypercholesterolemia.
One of these substances is vitamin C.
In most of hypercholesterolemic persons with a low vitamin C status, the administration of ascorbic acid in doses 500-1000 mg per day lowers total cholesterol concentration in blood plasma.
