Hypertension can be a killer, especially if untreated. Reduced blood pressure in both healthy, normotensive and hypertensive adults is usually a good thing.
A recent meta-analysis of short-term trials indicated that vitamin C supplementation does just this. It is important for individuals with significantly elevated blood pressure not to rely on vitamin C supplementation alone to treat their hypertension, but to seek or continue therapy with anti-hypertensive medication, as well as through diet and lifestyle changes in consultation with their health care provider.
