Association between Dietary Vitamin C Intake and Non-Alcoholic Fatty Liver Disease: A Cross-Sectional Study among Middle-Aged and Older Adults

Regular dietary exposure to vitamin C may be beneficial for the prevention of non-alcoholic fatty liver disease in middle-aged and older adults.

This study was carried out to confirm the protective effect of regular intake of vitamin C from food sources against the occurrence of non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) in middle-aged and older adults. A total of 3,471 Chinese men and women enrolled for this study and volunteered dietary and medical information. 

Researchers identified that increased consumption of foods high in vitamin C was associated with diminished risk of non-alcoholic fatty liver disease. This study demonstrated that eating foods packed with vitamin C may help halt the onset of non-alcoholic fatty liver disease in middle-aged and older adults.
