BENARKAH VIT C DAPAT GANTIKAN OLAH RAGA?COULD VITAMIN C REPLACE EXERCISE?

Vitamin C besar khasiatnya bagi tubuh. Tapi tahukah Anda kalau vitamin C sangat baik hingga dapat menggantikan fungsi olahraga.

Berdasarkan studi, dikutip dari Fastcoexist, mereka yang mengalami kelebihan berat badan masih bisa menikmati duduk-duduk di depan televisi. Selama mereka rajin minum vitamin setiap hari, mereka dapat menghindari penyumbatan pembuluh darah.

“Memasukkan olah raga ke rutinitas sehari-hari memang menantang,” kata abstrak laporan itu. Seolah-olah olahraga tidak penting untuk kesehatan sama seperti makan yang baik.

Tapi, tunggu dulu. Anda belum bisa menikmati bermalas-malasan. Studi melihat pada dampak dari vitamin C dalam pembuluh darah yang mengandung protein endothelin-1. Kelihatan kalau ada peningkatan aktivitas di pembuluh darah mereka yang kegemukan atau obesitas.

Untuk sehat, resepnya adalah rajin berolahraga. Tapi studi ini menemukan suplemen vitamin C secara rutin sebesar 500 mg sama baiknya dengan efek jalah sehat yang bisa mengurangi risiko penyempitan pembuluh darah.

Penelitian tidak menunjukkan bahwa vitamin C dapat menggantikan olah raga. “Saya dan penulis lain ingin menunjukkan bahwa vitamin C, pada kenyataannya, vitamin c bukan pengganti olahraga, tetapi pilihan yang baik untuk orang dewasa dengan kelebihan berat badan dan obesitas yang tidak bisa berolahraga,” ucap Caitlin Dow penulis utama studi tersebut.

We all know that vitamin C is good for us. But can it be so good that it can replace exercise?

That’s what it seems like, according to the headlines describing a new study—at least when it comes to some aspects of heart health. Overweight people can continue to sit around and watch TV, and as long as they pop some vitamin pills every day, they can avoid pesky constricted blood vessels.

“Incorporating an exercise regimen into a daily routine can be challenging,” says the report’s abstract, as if exercise weren’t as essential to our health as eating well.

But we can’t become a nation of couch-dwellers just yet. The study looked at the narrow effects of vitamin C on the vessel-constricting protein endothelin-1 (aka ET-1), which shows “elevated activity in the blood vessels of overweight and obese adults.” The usual prescription is exercise, but this study found that vitamin C supplements in daily 500 mg doses were just as good as a good walk in reducing vessel-constriction in a small sample of 35 overweight and obese subjects.

What the study doesn’t show is that vitamin C can replace exercise, something we know intuitively, because we’re not all skinny and fit despite the supplements we swallow. “I and the other authors want to point out that vitamin C is, in fact, not an exercise replacement, but a good option for adults with overweight [sic] and obesity who can’t exercise,” the study’s lead author, Caitlin Dow, told the Washington Post.

Which is a shame, because although I love exercise, I love food even more. And if eating an extra six oranges a day (an orange contains around 78 mg of vitamin C) could help keep the weight off, wouldn’t that be sweet?
