ABSTRACT
The article reports on the findings of the study by the researchers at the University of California, Berkeley. Accordingly, Doctor Gladys Block and her associates randomized 396 non-smokers to receive vitamin C, vitamin E, or a placebo for two months. It is found out that supplementing with vitamin C reduces C-reactive protein (CRP), a marker of inflammation linked with an increased risk of cardiovascular disease.
