 Recovery of Stroke Victims can Be Boosted by Soy-rich Diet

The study has shown that isoflavone, which is found in various beans and peanuts, makes stroke patients' arteries work better.

"A balanced diet is still the top priority in promoting health," the Daily Express quoted professor Hung-Fat Tse, from the University of Hong Kong, who worked on the study, as saying.

The research was published online in the European Heart Journal.

Isoflavone must be a rich source antioxidant and hence may help the stroke patients. We should be doing more research on natural food products that can have medicinal effects.
