NEW YORK (Reuters Health) – Vitamin C tablets can help lower blood sugar levels, according to a recent study by Duke University in Australia.
The study, published in the Diabetes and Obesity Journal and published in The Herald on Monday (February 11, 2019), found that taking two doses of 500 mg per day could reduce high blood sugar levels and reduce postpartum diabetes in diabetics. Type II.
Professor Glenn Wadley, co-author of the study, said: “We found that participants’ high blood sugar was reduced by 36 percent after meals.”
“This is very positive news, as hyperglycemia is a serious risk factor for cardiovascular disease in people with type 2 diabetes.”
Australia alone has more than 1.2 million people with type 2 diabetes, a common diabetes in a different country across the world.
Wadeley explained that the antioxidant properties of vitamin C can face high blood sugar levels in diabetics (Type II).
He pointed out that “the benefits of vitamin C tablets can also alleviate common diseases associated with diabetes, such as high blood pressure.”
Wadley said that participants in the study, who suffer from high blood pressure, also decreased their blood pressure levels while taking vitamin C tablets.
