Can Vitamin C Ward Off Stroke?

Individuals who are vitamin C deficient may be at an increased risk for hemorrhagic stroke. This type of stroke only represents about 15% of strokes, but it is the deadliest. This link is probably related to vitamin C’s role in lowering blood pressure and maintaining the health of blood vessels. However, the study did not show a direct cause-and-effect relationship. The authors recommended getting vitamin C through diet and not through supplementation.
