Vitamin C Improves Endothelium-Dependent Vasodilation by Restoring Nitric Oxide Activit... - 0 views

  •  
    IV Vitamin C improves endothelial vasodilation in essential hypertension.  The Vitamin C reduces the oxygen free radicals which allowed eNOS to increase NO production.  Two take homes: oxygen free radicals may be responsible for the endothelial dysfunction that leads to essential hypertension and vitamin C, particularly IV, can be used to counter this process.  Other studies have shown IV vitamin C to be anti-hypertensive in its action.

The acute effect of high-dose intravenous vitamin C and other nutrients on blood pressu... - 0 views

  • the reduction in BP within the first 10–20 min may be primarily attributed to a direct vasodilatory physiological effect, described as venodilation
  • BP reduction observed after 70–90 min is likely attributable to pharmacokinetically plausible vitamin C absorption and vasodilation because of nitric oxide release
  • Pharmacokinetic studies of IVC administration observed peak plasma levels within the first 90 min, with plasma levels reaching 13350 μmol/l for 50 g of IVC

  • Essential hypertension, associated with endothelial dysfunction because of an impaired nitric oxide/l-arginine pathway and impaired vasodilation can be restored by vitamin C
  • marked increase in BP response when IVB12 is administered
  • The mean BP increased significantly up to 12–16 mmHg systolic and diastolic independent of the dosage of vitamin B12
  • The production of norepinephrine, which can stimulate angiotensin-II production, which in turn influences BP, has been suggested as a possible mechanism for the increase in BP with IVB12
  • excess norephinephrine levels stimulate the sympathetic nervous system, leading to increased cortisol production, which has also been linked to increases in BP
  • Animal studies have found higher serum levels of norepinephrine (noradrenaline) in the adrenal medulla of rats receiving methylcobalamin (methyl-vitamin B12)
  •  
    IV vitamin C in mostly normotensive patients (> 30 grams) reduced blood pressure.  Some of the patients were pre-hypertensive. Vitamin B12 increase the blood pressure.

Blood Pressure Effects of Vitamin C | Hypertension - 0 views

  •  
    review article of studies on vitamin C and blood pressure finds mixed results.  I think it all comes down to dosing.  The authors highlight 2 studies to make their point. One find a significant reduction and another found a slight increase.  The dosing of the vitamin C was only 500 mg/day.  A woefully inadequate therapeutic dosing of vitamin C, especially when dealing with the significant deficiencies that can be found in disease states.

  •  
    animal study finds vitamin C improves hypertension via renovascular source and oxidative stress.  The dosage was 150 mg/kg/day.  This would be equivalent to 10,800 grams daily for a 72 human.  But what about a 200 lb male or female?  That would be 13,650 grams of vitamin C daily.
