Daily dose of vitamin C can slash your risk of heart attacks
Poor blood circulation is associated with heart attacks, strokes and blindness.
Dr James May, from Vanderbilt University School of Medicine in Nashville, Tennessee, says the research team believes vitamin C could also be a valuable tool in the fight against diabetes which is caused by insulin problems.
Dr May said his data highlighted how vitamin C helped blood flow so it is distributed to meet the demands of different tissues.
The study, published in the Journal of Biological Chemistry, focused on the endothelium, a thin layer of simple cells that line the interior surface of our circulatory system which is weakened by inflammation.
