Across study subjects, the researchers found that vitamin C supplementation reduced systolic blood pressure by 3.84 mm Hg and diastolic blood pressure by 1.48 mm Hg. Further, when the team looked at hypertensive patients only, vitamin C supplementation exerted and even greater benefit – reducing systolic pressure by 4.85 mm Hg and diastolic pressure by 1.67 mm Hg. cap the study authors conclude that: “In short-term trials, vitamin C supplementation reduced [systolic blood pressure] and [diastolic blood pressure].
