Vitamin C and diabetes – what you need to know

Exciting new research from Deakin University in Victoria has found that vitamin C could help people with type 2 diabetes.



Not only does the right dose of vitamin C reduce sugar spikes, it could also reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease and help to lower blood pressure.


The Deakin researchers found that two 500mg doses of vitamin C each day can lower blood sugar levels and reduce post-meal sugar spikes by 36% – a significant effect.


This means the patients spent three hours less per day in a state of hyperglycaemia. This is good news, as hyperglycaemia is a risk factor for cardiovascular disease for people with type 2 diabetes.


Participants of the study who had hypertension also found their blood pressure was reduced while taking the vitamin.
