28. Defend Against Atomic Pickpockets: Vitamin C
Antioxidant supplements (Vitamin A, C, E, and selenium) protect cells by neutralizing free radicals, atomic fragments that cause cellular destruction and produce metabolic waste.
Vitamin C raises "good" cholesterol (HDL), and prevents "bad" cholesterol (LDL) from oxidation, which subsequently prevents the build-up of athlerosclerotic plaques on the blood vessel wall that contribute to cardiovascular disease. In a study by University of California-Los Angeles School of Health, men who took vitamin C daily had a 45% lower risk of heart attack than men whose intake was less than the U.S. RDA.
