What Antioxidant Vitamins Reduce Cardiovascular Disease?

Learn if antioxidant vitamins can reduce cardiovascular disease in this Howcast video with expert Molly Lee.

Transcript

Some studies have shown that the antioxidant vitamins A, C, and E can reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease, but studies are still being done, and it hasn't been completely proven yet. On the flip side, studies have shown that eating a diet rich in antioxidant foods such as fruits, vegetables and nuts has been linked to a reduced risk of cardiovascular disease. The best sources of antioxidants are from foods such as the ones you see here: dark leafy greens, broccoli, carrots, tomatoes, and also a variety of nuts, like sunflower seeds, almonds, and hazelnuts. If for some reason you're unable to get most of your antioxidants from food, you may want to consider taking a supplement, just be careful not to take too many because too many can be harmful to the body.
