HELP PREVENT STROKE BY ADDING THESE FOODS TO YOUR DIET:
Antioxidants, which clean up the detritus left by normal metabolic processes. Dark-coloured foods such as blueberries, dark chocolate, kidney beans and artichokes are brimming with antioxidants.
Vitamins A,B, C, D and E, which between them help clean away rubbish, strengthen arteries and keep brain cells healthy. Find them in wholegrain cereals, eggs, chicken, nuts and leafy greens.
Omega-3 and other non-saturated oils, which strengthen and clean the arteries as well as helping to build brain cell membranes. Good sources of omega-3 include oily fish, walnuts and edible seeds.
Neurotransmitter precursors such as tryptophan and glucosinolates. Find them in milk, nuts, seeds, tofu, cheese, red meat, chicken, turkey, fish, oats, beans, lentils, eggs and broccoli.
