Vitamin C Could Be Just As Good As Exercise

March 8, 2020


STEAD AND ALL PREGNANT WOMEN ARE URGED TO GET THE SHOTS IN THE LAST THREE MONTHS OF THEIR PREGNANCY TO PASS PARTIAL IMMUNITY. RESEARCHERS IN COLORADO LOOKED 35 SEDENTARY AND OVERWEIGHT ADULT AND COMPARED THE EFFECTS OF VITAMIN C AND EXERCISE ON BLOOD VESSEL TONE. THEY FOUND THAT TAKING 500 MG OF VITAMIN C A DAY HAD THE SAME POSITIVE EFFECT ON BLOOD VESSELS AS BRISK WALKING FIVE TO SEVEN TIMES A WEEK. HOWEVER, THIS WAS A SMALL STUDY AND DON’T THINK VITAMIN C IS A REGULAR SUBSTITUTE FOR EXERCISE. SOUNDS LIKE A MAGIC PILL. Reporter: THEY SAY IT’S NOT AN EXERCISE PILL BECAUSE YOU GET SO MANY OTHER GOOD THINGS. IF I TAKE A PILL, IS THAT AS GOOD AS EATS AN ORANGE? Reporter: NUTRITIONISTS WILL SAY, NO, MUCH BETTER TO GET IT FROM YOUR DIET BUT IT’S HARD TO GET ALL YOU NEED. 500 MG — LOW MANY IN PAN ORANGE? 35 MG TO 45 MG? YOU NEED A LOT. THANK YOU VERY MUCH.
