One reason for the current high mortality are diseases of the blood vessels, one of the most dangerous of which is stroke. Unfortunately, it affects more and more young people.

Stroke has nothing to do with fate or bad luck, even when you have hereditary predisposition to it. This severe disease is associated with your lifestyle, and it can be changed.

Stroke has a characteristic sharp disruption of the blood supply to the brain in certain areas. Strokes are divided into ischemic and haemorrhagic. Ischemic ones arise because of the thrombus or occlusion of a blood vessel, but also by its contraction.

Certain areas of the brain are deprived of oxygen, it becomes suddenly ill and its cells quickly die. Hemorrhagic stroke occurs due to the rupture of a blood vessel - from the damaged vessel’s bleeding, the brain is disrupted.

The reason for the rupture of a blood vessel is usually high blood pressure. To prevent stroke, you must mostly try to change your diet.

The occurrence of stroke can be prevented by many substances contained in ordinary foods. For example, magnesium reduces the risk of stroke by fifteen percent.

It is found in whole plants, nuts, green vegetables and prunes. Magnesium lowers high blood pressure. The main rule that must be followed to prevent stroke is not to overeat.


In your diet, you need to have products rich in pectin such as nectar, fresh vegetables and fruit, homemade jam. These products, as well as whole-grain breads help the disposing of toxins.

For best operation of the brain and speed of response, you need the hormones adrenaline and noradrenaline - they are formed in the presence of phenylalanine. It is found in eggs, cottage cheese, cream, milk, fish, chicken and meat from farm animals.

The brain needs tryptophan, which, incidentally, slows aging. Bananas, grapes, dried apricots, dried figs, dates, nuts, cottage cheese, fish and turkey are rich in tryptophan.

Lysine is also important for brain functioning and clear thinking. It is found in poultry, oats, legumes, corn and natural chocolate.

Products that protect against sclerotic plaques and even destroy them, are turnips, radishes, horseradish, cabbage, broccoli and cauliflower. It decreases the risk of stroke by one-third.

Citrus fruits reduce this risk by twenty five percent. In Mediterranean countries, people do not often suffer from vascular disease. This is due to the regular use of olive oil, which is responsible for the health of blood vessels.
