Eat Bananas And Help Prevent A Stroke

Stroke is the 3rd leading cause of death in the United States.

Research has indicated that potassium rich food such as bananas potatoes, spinach, beans, peas, tomatoes, raisins and plums reduce the risk of stroke by lowering blood pressure and protecting against hardening of the arteries.Research has also concluded that the mineral potassium also helps regulate heartbeat, nerve impulses and muscle contractions

What exactly is Potassium?  Well Potassium is a mineral that helps keep the body in equilibrium.  It works with Sodium to help keep the body in electrolyte balance. A recent study in the Journal of Hypertension showed that men and women who consumed the most potassium had a 20 percent lower risk of stroke than those who consumed the least amount.    

Another research study at Harvard University concluded that individual who consumed more than four grams of potassium in a single day either from supplements or food, were less likely to have a stroke than those who only got half as much. The study also found that people with high blood pressure who took potassium supplements, in addition to their food consumption, cut their chances of a stroke by 60% percent
