In this video, Dr. Berg talks about Vitamin C in relationship to Cardiovascular Health. Heart attacks are the number one cause of deaths worldwide. Atherosclerosis is hardening of the artery – it is not caused by cholesterol. Cholesterol is made by the body in large amounts. The cause is the structural weakness within the blood vessel itself. Vitamins C is a co-factor to help support the production of collagen in vascular smooth muscle. He also talks about the classic vitamin C deficiency, scurvy and on how you become deficient in vitamin C.

• Poor eating habits or not consuming enough vegetables

Hey guys, today we are gonna talk about vitamin C in relationship to cardiovascular health. Since heart attacks are the number 1 single cause of death worldwide, it’s a good idea just to understand all the different pieces of this puzzle so you can then minimize the damage that happen to your body and prevent the problem. We have this thing called atherosclerosis, hardening of the arteries. Sometimes people think it is caused by consuming too much cholesterol, it is not. It has been proven that it’s not caused by cholesterol, cholesterol is made by your body in large amounts, it’s gonna come in there to heal something but it is not the actual cause. The cause is the structural weakness within the blood vessel itself. The very most inner lining of the artery has something called endothelial cells and these are kind of collagen cells and you need vitamin c to keep this really really strong. Vitamin C is a co-factor to help support the production of collagen in vascular smooth muscle. You actually have muscles around the arteries that make it contract and relax. The elasticity is very important. You don’t want it to be stiff and rigid. I already done videos on how insulin could make your arteries very rigid and thick but just realize that too much insulin which causes insulin resistance can be one of the key factors of causing a vitamin c deficiency in the first place. There has been over 478 clinical trials involving supplementing with vitamin C that shows significant improvement in endothelial function. It is definitely one of the key factors involved in the cardiovascular disease because if that inner wall becomes damage, there comes the cholesterol, calcium, protein to form the clot. And vitamin C is also necessary to prevent the clot from breaking off and causing a stroke of even a heart attack so it is really important.
