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.

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.
