Vitamin C helps chronic heart failure patients

"Vitamin C improves flow-dependent dilation in patients with chronic heart failure as the result of increased availability of nitric oxide. This observation supports the concept that endothelial dysfunction in patients with chronic heart failure is, at least in part, due to accelerated degradation of nitric oxide by radicals."
