Q. Vitamins requirement in dyslipidemia?

Antioxidants and flavonoids, natural vitamin E, vitamins C and Aare nutrients (vitamins) that scavenge cell-damaging free radicals and act as antioxidants as you may recall studying earlier in Unit 7. It is important to know this in view of the fact that damage through free radicals is quite pronounced among patients with Syndrome X -a risk factor for cardiovascular disease. Vitamin A is present in good amounts in green and yellow fruits and vegetables and lycopene in tomatoes and anthocyanin in grapes and berries. Vitamin E rich foods include buck wheat (7.9 pg), corn (5.8 pg), almonds (24.4 pg), sunflower seeds (52.1 pg), spinach (3.0 pg) and soya bean (93.7 pg). Hence, vitamins (E,C and A) containing foods, bright yellow fruits and vegetables like papaya, orange, mango, strawberry, tomato, carrots and green leafy vegetables like methi and spinach, cabbage, red wines, tea and soya bean are excellent foods because of their antioxidant properties.
