stroke is known
as a “brain attack” and can happen to anyone, anywhere at any time. It occurs
when blood flow to an area of the brain is cut off. When this occurs, brain cells
are deprived of oxygen and begin to die.
Studies have shown that eating more
whole grains, fruits, vegetables and fish, can lower the risk of
stroke. Here are four fantastic foods
you should start with:
Beans aren’t just
good for your heart, but for your brain as well. This is because they are rich
in the B vitamin Folate, also known as Folic Acid.
According to a study
conducted on nearly 10,000 adults, eating a diet rich in Folate lowers the risk
of stroke by 20%.
Oats, Almonds and Soy
are three of the foods that formulate a cholesterol-lowering regimen known as
the Portfolio Eating Plan developed by professional researchers in Toronto,
Canada. This combination, when consumed as part of a diet that is low in
saturated fat, reduces the “bad” cholesterol known as LDL by 20%, almost as
much as a statin drug does.
Fruits and Vegetables are good sources of
antioxidants, which help reduce
inflammation and prevent plaque build-up in the arteries. They also help
improve blood flow by helping with the dilation of blood vessels.
Strawberries, Blueberries and Raspberries
should do the job!
Research has shown that
rich in potassium such as
potatoes, prunes and raisins as well as fruits and veggies mentioned above,
lower stroke by 38%. Consuming a diet that is low in potassium can increase
your risk of stroke by 28%.
