A 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 foods rich in potassium such as Bananas, 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%.
