Quality assessment

The author concluded that vitamin C supplementation has a modest effect on reducing systolic and diastolic blood pressure in patients with hypertension. Given the limitations of the literature search, the uncertain quality of the included studies and the failure to appropriately synthesise the results, the author?s conclusions should be interpreted with caution.

CRD has determined that this article meets the DARE scientific quality criteria for a systematic review.
