Angina sufferers lack vitamins
About the author: 
WDDTY Team

People with angina have significantly lower levels of vitamins C, E and carotene(from vitamin A) than healthy individuals and could benefit from higher levels of these nutrients

People with angina have significantly lower levels of vitamins C, E and carotene(from vitamin A) than healthy individuals and could benefit from higher levels of these nutrients.

This is the finding of a University of Edinburgh study, which studied the blood levels of the three nutrients.Smoking was a "confounding factor"; the increased need for vitamins C and carotene disappeared when smoking was taken into account, although the vitamin E need remained constant.

"These findings suggest that some populations with a high incidence of coronary heart disease may benefit from eating diets rich in natural antioxidants, particularly vitamin E," concluded the study. These would include cereals, vitamin E rich oils, certain vegetables and fruit.
