5 doctors agree

In brief: No

Large doses of anti oxidants vitamin a c and e have all failed to show cardivascular benefits.
Consuming large doses of vitamins can be harmful as well . Most of the time the body excretes excess vitamins and doesnt utilize it.

In brief: Not that we know

Supplemental vitamin c has not been shown to decrease the risk of coronary artery disease.
On the other hand, eating right which would include plenty of fruits and vegetables (usually rich in vitamins including c) is the cornerstone of prevention.
