Bananas Could Prevent Stroke

bananaStroke is the threat of a terrible disease because the process can take place quickly. If not quickly helped could risk death, otherwise if it can still be saved will experience a disability. The new study found that eating three bananas a day can help you reduce the risk of stroke.

Researchers from Britain and Italy have found that eating three bananas a day can reduce the risk of stroke.

Researchers say that eating a banana for breakfast, a banana for lunch and a banana for the evening would provide enough potassium, which reduces the chances of people suffering from blood clots in the brain is about 21 percent.

In addition to bananas, these findings also indicate that stroke can be prevented by the consumption of other potassium-rich foods such as spinach, nuts, milk fish and lentils.

In a recent study, the researchers analyzed data from eleven different studies and pooled the results to get the overall result.

Researchers found a daily potassium intake of around 1,600 mg, less than half the UK recommended daily amount for an adult of 3,500 mg, was enough to reduce the risk of stroke more than a fifth.

The average banana contains about 500 milligrams of potassium, which helps lower blood pressure and controls the balance of fluids in the body.

Too little potassium can cause gastrointestinal irritability, nausea, irregular heartbeat, and diarrhea.

“Potassium intake in most countries is well below the recommended daily amount,” said researchers from the University of Warwick and University of Naples, as reported by Indiavision.

And if people eat foods rich in potassium then also reduce salt intake, the annual global death toll from strokes could be cut more than one million people per year.
