Effect of Vitamin E, Vitamin C, and β-Carotene on stroke risk


Suter, Paolo M (2009). Effect of Vitamin E, Vitamin C, and β-Carotene on stroke risk. Nutrition Reviews, 58(6):184-187.

Abstract

In a recent prospective observational study, vitamins C and E and β-carotene did not elicit protective effects on stroke risk. Lutein, however, may elicit such protection. Nevertheless, these nutrients may be important modulators of the outcome after the occurrence of a stroke. At present, optimal control of the classic stroke risk factors in combination with increased consumption of fruits, vegetables, and antioxidant nutrients may represent the safest and most efficient strategy to control stroke risk
