A new study shows that people who were deficient in Vitamin C were potentially at higher risk for hemorrhagic stroke.  According to the American Stroke Association, hemorrhagic strokes make up only 13 percent of strokes, but are typically deadlier than ischemic strokes.

A hemorrhagic stroke results when a weakened blood vessel ruptures and bleeds into the surrounding brain.  The two types of weakened blood vessels are aneurysms and arteriovenous malformations.

“This study suggests that a low level of vitamin C is a risk for spontaneous brain hemorrhages,” states lead researcher Dr. Stepane Vannier.  According to Dr. Vannier, the link may be due to Vitamin C potentially lowering overall blood pressure and aiding in maintaining blood vessel health.

A total of 65 people who had suffered strokes were compared with 65 healthy people in this study.  Blood samples taken showed that on average, depleted levels of Vitamin C correlated with those who had suffered strokes, whereas those who did not averaged normal levels of Vitamin C.

The depleted levels of Vitamin C did not link with higher instances of death, however did correlate with longer hospitalization.

“Vitamin C levels were significantly lower in people who had brain bleeds, compared with healthy people, but we have not yet calculated an odds risk,” states Dr. Vannier.

Although the study did find a potential correlation, it did not find a direct relationship.  Further studies will be needed to confirm the findings.

The findings are considered preliminary, and are due to be presented at the annual meeting of the American Academy of Neurology.

“Vitamin C does have a relationship to the integrity of tissue.  One can speculate that it might have something to do with brain bleeding,” states Dr. Ken Uchino, stroke specialist.

Dr. Vannier states that the best way to get Vitamin C is by diet rather than supplements, “We actually don’t recommend using vitamin C supplementation when there is no deficiency.”
