    Default Discover An Anti-Aging Vitamin (Vitamin C)

    The Anti-Aging Vitamin?

    Vitamin C, we know, does some pretty cool stuff, apart from just preventing scurvy. A new study finds a link between low vitamin C in the blood and increased risk for intracerebral hemorrhage (stroke).

    That’s not surprising, because we know that scurvy is characterized by spontaneous bleeding, especially from the gums (if you get blood on your toothbrush, up your intake of vitamin C and don’t forget the brushing with coconut oil from this issue…). Vitamin C is vital in the manufacture of collagen, which is turn helps support blood vessels and tissues.

    In fact, this effect may be the real reason that fruits and veggies protect against stroke, rather than the antioxidant content (or perhaps both). But there is an extra layer to this: vitamin C helps reduce blood pressure significantly.

    Lots of vitamin C, yes; but recommending the widespread use of vaccines, not so much!

    The vaccine recommendations made me cringe a bit — but reading his stuff he really keeps vaccination limited to rabies, tetanus, etc.
