Foods To Prevent Stroke

Did you know that every year, more than 795,000 people in the US have a stroke? And nearly 1 in 4 people have had a previous stroke. Stroke is a leading cause of disability and a cause of about 1 in every 20 deaths.

So what can you do to reduce your risk of stroke? One of the things is change your diet.

  • Foods rich in folate

Researchers have found that eating foods like beans can reduce stroke risk by 20 percent.

  • Soy, Almonds and Oats

These foods, along with a diet low in saturated fats, are part of a cholesterol-lowering regimen, which can help lower risk of stroke.

  • Antioxidants

You’ve probably heard a lot about antioxidants, which are found in fruits and vegetables. Antioxidants help reduce inflammation, prevent plaque build-up in the arteries and help improve blood flow.

  • Potassium rich foods

Potassium has been found to significantly reduce stroke risk, if eaten regularly. You can find potassium in bananas, potatoes, prunes and raisins.

  • Low-fat dairy

Low-fat and non-fat dairy products are great sources of potassium, magnesium and calcium, all of which naturally lower blood pressure.

  • Magnesium rich foods

Studies have found that foods rich in magnesium help reduce the risk of stroke, even if you do not have high blood pressure. Some foods rich in magnesium are leafy greens, nuts, seeds, fish, whole grains, yogurt and more.

  • Fatty fish

If you’re already on a heart healthy diet, and already eating these types of fish, you could be helping prevent stroke! Fatty fish are chock full of Omega-3 fatty acids, which are great for heart health, and heart health lowers stroke risk.

Changing your diet is one of the many ways to get and stay healthy. Always remember to talk to your doctor before drastically changing your diet.

What People Are Saying About Us

I’d like to convey to you how wonderful the aide Afia is for my mother’s care. She has been with her since last January and has become more than just a caregiver. She truly “cares” and is skillful in her abilities. My mom has had several health situations and her current health has improved to the best she has been in several years. Both her doctor and my family attribute a large part of that to Afia’s care. She is diligent about her diet and sleep patterns, and her “toileting” issues. All of this has contributed greatly to my mom’s overall improved health and her peace of mind as well as our family’s peace of mind. We cannot say enough about her. We are also very satisfied with Executive Care all the way around, from the billing department and everyone we speak with on the phone, very courteous and professional.

It’s almost five years since we have been receiving caregivers through Executive Care, and I would like to take this transitional period to express our appreciation for the services you have provided thus far. We are particularly appreciative of the special attention and care Lili has given to our case. Lili has been very sensitive to our particular needs and it has been and remains important to us to have consistency in the arrangements by having Lili as our go-to person in light of Dr. E’s special needs. It is apparent that Lili has many other important responsibilities, so we wanted to thank Executive Care and Lili for the efforts she has made on our behalf.
Judge Naomi E
I have had business dealings with Executive Care for some time now and have invariably been very satisfied. The personnel have been considerate, trustworthy, capable and always responsive. They have provided a genuine physical and emotional lift to the patient, in my case an elderly, frail sister. I do not hesitate to recommend the organization for the services rendered.
