The oxidative stress with specific antioxidants and the inflammatory reaction with the purely plant-based Omega-3 – fatty acid ALA. So, researcher of the prestigious British University of Cambridge in two independent studies have investigated the influence of antioxidant vitamins on the risk of coronary heart disease and stroke. In a literature study, a group of researchers found that taking extra vitamin C and can reduce the risk for coronary heart disease. The other group evaluated the results of a mega study with over 20,000 participants over a period of 10 years. From this study, it is clear that a high vitamin C blood levels reduces the risk of stroke and a lower increase it. Thus, both studies confirm findings from previous sometimes very extensive research.
After that is the combination of vitamins C and in correct dosage in able to combat risk factors for heart attack and stroke. This applies in particular to the preservation of elasticity of the arterial walls to high Blood pressure to prevent and to stop arresting the progression of hardening of the arteries clogging of the vessels. It followed the present scientific literature on the cardioprotective (protected heart) effects of plant-based Omega-3 fatty acid alpha-linolenic acid (ALA), so you will find that there are a variety of studies, stress the importance of ALA for heart and circulatory system. In the studies, the effect was investigated by ALA on the prevention of coronary heart disease and sudden cardiac death. Collectively, the studies show a clear result: regular consumption of vegetable oils with a high proportion of ALA (alpha-linolenic acid) has a positive effect on heart health and has heart protective effects in healthy as well as those who are suffering from coronary heart disease. In addition has also positive effects on blood pressure, how determined researchers from Greece. In their study, they found that among men, about 12 weeks linseed oil with much ALA consumed, increased blood pressure significantly decreased.
