Nobody wants a stroke. Strokes destroy parts of the brain and the functions that go with it. They can also happen at an early age.
The thought of the possibility of a stroke is actually quite terrifying. Strokes damage your brain. In addition, the Journal of the American Medical Association reported that one or two small strokes in strategic parts of the brain increase your chances of Alzheimer’s-type dementia 20 times over!
One anti-stroke secret is simple: eat fruits, vegetables, and drink tea.
However, there is a lot more you can do. Here are 19 brain foods that help your brain escape strokes:
> Tomato juice
> Orange juice
> Acorn squash
> Dried apricots
> Sweet potato
> Lima beans
> Skimmed milk
> Soy beans
> Baked potato
> Baked beans
As a family, we try to eat lots of these foods every week. Keeping your brain healthy is one of the best investments you can make in yourself and the people you love.
