Vitamins E and C have no heart benefit
Vitamin E and C supplements have no significant effect on cardiovascular risk in men, concludes one of the largest studies to date.
Physicians Health Study findings in over 14,000 male doctors showed supplements of vitamin E 400IU every other day and vitamin C 500mg daily over eight years did not reduce major cardiovascular events compared with placebo.
Vitamin E appeared to increase the haemorrhagic stroke, by 74%.
