Vitamin C intake and apolipoproteins in a healthy elderly Japanese population

, : Vitamin C intake and apolipoproteins in a healthy elderly Japanese population. Preventive Medicine 34(3): 364-369

Adequate vitamin C (AsA) intake may lower the risk of arteriosclerotic cardiovascular disease, but little is known about its influence on the progression of atherogenic disease in the elderly. We examined whether AsA intake was associated with serum lipids, apolipoprotein A-1 (ApoA1) and apolipoprotein B (ApoB), in 680 Japanese elderly persons. There were no significant gender differences among mean serum lipids and apolipoprotein concentrations and intakes of macronutrients.
