    Dont worry about cholesterol level, just take enough vitamin c.
    your body needs some cholesterol and vitamin C is the natural
    way to reduce cholesterol.

    Have you got any references to back your claim that vitamin C reduces
    cholesterol? As far as I know, vitamin C does not lower cholesterol. But it
    is important to get antioxidant protection from various antioxidants and
    phytochemicals in plant foods.

    Just eat plenty of vegetables, fruits, berries and almonds and some other
    nuts, dark chocolate and green tea and you have a good antioxidant
    protection.

    50mg per kiloogram body weight.

    getting enough vitamin C.

    A Brittish researcher named Spittle claimed this, but multiple attempts
    to confirm it have failed. Vitamin C has little or no effect on blood
    cholesterol.

    That is what I think also. But it does lower blood pressure.

    Bile is produced in the liver from cholesterol.This takes up most
    cholesterol in the body. Vitamin C is needed for this process to work.
    Without enough vitamin C, the cholesterol hangs around and forms
    'liver-stones' , some of these end up in the gall bladder and enlarge
    until docs are called in to cut them out. With enough vitamin C in your
    diet, (only achieved through supplementation), you use up the
    cholesterol so the stones don't form.
