Benefits Of Fruits and Veggies
Overweight and at risk for stroke? Fruit and vegetables may be what you need say researchers. In a recent study researchers say they found antioxidants in fruits and vegetables which may reduce the risk of ischemic strokes, the most common type of stroke caused when blood clots cut off oxygen supply to the brain. Carotenoids are the antioxidants found in fruits and vegetables.

For the study researchers measured the levels in blood samples of nearly 22,000 men. The results showed patients who had higher carotenoid levels were at a 40-percent lower risk of having a stroke.Based on these findings, researchers suggest a diet high in fruits and vegetables which may reduce stroke risk.
