Higher Circulating Vitamin C Linked to Better Metabolic Health

Metabolic syndrome is a cluster of conditions that occur together, increasing the risk of heart disease, stroke, and type 2 diabetes. These conditions include increased blood pressure, high blood sugar, excess body fat around the waist, and abnormal cholesterol or triglyceride levels. According to a recent study, higher dietary and circulating levels of vitamin C may be associated with a lower risk of metabolic syndrome.

For their study, researchers from Central South University evaluated the results of 28 human observational studies that included 110,000 participants. The studies looked at the association between dietary and circulating levels of vitamin C and metabolic syndrome.

The researchers found that participants with higher dietary or circulating levels of vitamin C were less likely to have metabolic syndrome. They believe that vitamin C’s antioxidant properties help reduce inflammation and oxidative stress, high levels of which are associated with a higher risk of metabolic syndrome.

The study was published online ahead of print on October 8, 2021 in the journal Frontiers in Nutrition.
