A review of studies that focus on strokes shows that you may be able to lower your risk by taking a simple vitamin pill.
The researchers at Zhengzhou University in Zhengzhou, China looked at experiments that involved more than 54,000 people. They discovered that taking B vitamins, particularly folic acid, can lower the overall stroke risk by 7 percent.
“Based on our results, the ability of vitamin B to reduce stroke risk may be influenced by a number of other factors such as the body’s absorption rate, the amount of folic acid or vitamin B12 concentration in the blood, and whether a person has kidney disease or high blood pressure,” says researcher Xu Yuming.
Yuming believes that: “Before you begin taking any supplements, you should always talk to your doctor.”
Of course, most conventional doctors don’t seem to have much of a grasp on even the most basic principles of nutrition.
