High Cholesterol Stack

General Health 732 SupplementDoctor
Having high levels of cholesterol may predispose you in developing fatty acids in your blood vessels. This in turn, makes it difficult for enough blood to flow through your arteries, giving your heart and body inadequate oxygen, and putting you at risk of having a heart attack. High cholesterol, or hypercholesterolenemia, may be inherited, but can also be a result of unhealthy lifestyle choices, thus making it preventable and treatable. Take control of your cholesterol to lower your heart disease risk. According to research or other evidence, the following self-care steps may be helpful.

High Cholesterol Stack

Potential Interactions
Intake of large amounts of vitamin C can deplete the body of copper—an essential nutrient. People should be sure to maintain adequate copper intake at higher intakes of vitamin C. Copper is found in many multivitamin-mineral supplements.
  • Sandstead HH. Copper bioavailability and requirements. Am J Clin Nutr 1982;35:809-14 [review].
  • Finley EB, Cerklewski FL. Influence of ascorbic acid supplementation on copper status in young adult men. Am J Clin Nutr 1983;37:553-6.
There is some evidence that magnesium may enhance calcium absorption.
  • Briscoe AM, Ragan C. Effect of magnesium on calcium metabolism in man. Am J Clin Nutr 1966;19:296-306.

Ingesting plant sterols interferes with beta-carotene and vitamin E absorption, resulting in lower blood levels of these nutrients.

  • Richelle M, Enslen M, Hager C, et al. Both free and esterified plant sterols reduce cholesterol absorption and the bioavailability of beta-carotene and alpha-tocopherol in normocholesterolemic humans. Am J Clin Nutr 2004;80:171-7.
Studies in animals and humans suggest that supplementation with large amounts of either vitamin C or vitamin E increases the requirement for the other nutrient.
  • Chen LH. An increase in vitamin E requirement induced by high supplementation of vitamin C in rats. The American journal of clinical nutrition. 1981 Jun;34(6):1036-41
  • Brown KM,Morrice PC,Duthie GG. Erythrocyte vitamin E and plasma ascorbate concentrations in relation to erythrocyte peroxidation in smokers and nonsmokers: dose response to vitamin E supplementation. The American journal of clinical nutrition. 1997 Feb;65(2):496-502
Vitamin C appears to convert sodium selenite (a form of selenium used for supplementation) to elemental selenium, making it unavailable for absorption. This interaction occurred when 1 g of vitamin C was taken with sodium selenite on an empty stomach, but not when these nutrients were taken together with a meal. Vitamin C does not appear to interact with selenomethionine, another commonly used form of supplemental selenium.
  • Robinson MF,Thomson CD,Huemmer PK. Effect of a megadose of ascorbic acid, a meal and orange juice on the absorption of selenium as sodium selenite. The New Zealand medical journal. 1985 Aug;98(784):627-9
