Vitamin C tablets can help in decreasing hyperglycemia, a high blood glucose level. Revealed a recent study by Deakin University in Australia as “The Herald” newspaper reported.
The study, which was published in the a diabetes and obesity journal, found that taking two doses of 500 mg per day, can lower high blood glucose levels. Taking doses can prevent raise of glucose after meals suffered by type II diabetes patients.
“We found that participants’ hyperglycemia decreased after meals by 36 percent,” stated a co-author of the study, Professor Glenn Wadley.
“This is very positive news, as hyperglycemia is a serious risk factor for cardiovascular disease suffered by type II diabetes patients,” he added.
Australia alone has more than 1.2 million people with type II diabetes, a common diabetes in a different country across the world.
Wadley explained that the antioxidant properties of vitamin C can face high blood glucose levels in diabetic patients (type II).
“Benefits of vitamin C tablets can also alleviate common diseases associated with diabetes, such as high blood pressure,” he pointed out that “Participants in the study, who suffer from high blood pressure, also had their blood pressure levels decreased after taking vitamin C tablets,” he concluded.
