Antioxidants are put to the test for heart health...and come away champions!

Overall, in the antioxidant group, blood pressure was reduced, large and small artery elasticity increased significantly. HDL cholesterol increased significantly. HbA1C (a measure of high blood sugar) declined significantly. And triglycerides declined…a little.

But I saved the best for last: At the outset of the study, each of the 70 subjects had at least TWO of these cardiovascular risk factors: cigarette smoking, type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure, low HDL cholesterol, or high triglycerides.
