Vitamin C does not cause kidney stones, as once believed, or other significant side effects. There is no long-term toxicity for either vitamin. Vitamin E can have a slight blood thinning effect; check with your doctor if you are taking other heart medications, especially anticoagulants. Generally authorities do not advise taking more than 1,000 IU of vitamin E daily, except on the advice of a doctor.

Studies in animals and humans consistently show that a daily dose of 400 to 500 IU of vitamin E drastically inhibits the propensity of LDL to become toxic and damage arteries. Studies show that vitamin E also can slow down the proliferation of smooth muscle cells that pile up on artery walls, contributing to artery-clogging plaque.

New research shows vitamin C can quickly correct abnormalities in the vascular functioning of diseased arteries that lead to heart attacks and angina.
Mark Ong
Mark Onghas quoted2 years ago
Exciting new studies find that vitamin C has a fascinating, newly discovered role in keeping arteries open. In the last few years scientists have established that artery clogging due to cholesterol and buildup of plaque, which vitamin E superbly discourages, is but one factor in triggering heart attacks and heart failure. Critically important also is so-called vascular function—how the cells lining the walls of arteries relax and contract.

The researchers pronounced vitamin E more powerful in controlling heart attacks than aspirin or cholesterol-lowering drugs. Indeed, they found that vitamin E reduced the risk of nonfatal heart attack to normal—that expected in healthy individuals with no signs of heart disease. Further, the benefits of the vitamin-drug were evident within six and a half months after subjects started to take it.
