8 foods that reduce the risk of stroke. Czechs unnecessarily avoid most of them

Cerebrovascular accidents (commonly known as strokes) affect 23,500 Czechs every year. What can you do to avoid being among them?

It used to be a tradition that “those in their seventies” are most at risk of stroke. Today, it affects younger generations as well. And really, there’s nothing to be surprised about. In addition to genetic predispositions, stress, smoking, alcohol and, of course, an unhealthy diet are triggers for the disease. This “package of vices” usually results in a stroke, which becomes one of the most feared diseases of civilization. Do you want to avoid it? The first step you have to take is to change your diet. And here are eight “starters” that should not be missed!

The author of the video Loono introduces you to more facts about stroke. More on the channel YouTube.com.

Some say this cereal is for rabbits. But somewhere, it will come in handy too! This cereal contains a large amount of fiber, which binds to cholesterol and literally “drives” it out of the body. Therefore, experts recommend eating 2.5 cups of high-quality oatmeal daily (for example, as porridge, yummy with yogurt and fruit) and you will have a significantly lower risk of stroke.

Quality yogurt

Dairy products contain probiotics that are good for the intestines. You may not know it, but the health of this digestive organ is closely related to the condition of your brain. Therefore, try to give the intestines everything they need. For example, low-fat yogurts for breakfast are a good choice.


In order for the body to absorb a portion of probiotics, it also needs to be supplemented with prebiotics. It is undigested fiber that supports the growth of good bacteria in the intestines. Where can you find her? Like in beans. But be careful, never buy canned beans. They don’t have that much nutritional value and are practically useless to you. Better to do the work and buy legumes in a bag and cook them yourself. You will be rewarded with a good dose of prebiotics.


It is aromatic and pungent. If you can forgive the onion for these minor flaws, you’ve won. Vegetables contain substances called flavonoids, which reduce the risk of stroke by as much as 20%. Therefore, do not hesitate and cook onion for dinner or fry toast with onions.

Flax seeds

The brain is 60% fat. Therefore, it needs essential fatty acids to function well. You can find these substances, for example, in flax seeds, walnuts or chia seeds. In addition, research has shown that omega 3 acids are also effective in stroke prevention. So don’t hesitate and use the nuts or seeds as a sprinkle in soup, on sandwiches or in porridge!

Red wine

Even though it is alcohol, the occasional glass won’t kill you. Especially when you know that a double dose of red can improve your health even more. It contains the antioxidant resveratrol, which significantly reduces the recurrence (i.e. the return) of a stroke.

Sea fish

The truth is that nations that regularly have fish on their plates tend to have a lower risk of disease. There will probably be something about it in the event of a stroke. According to research, fattier fish such as salmon, tuna, trout or mackerel are rich in vitamin D, which strengthens the brain. And a good brain is the greatest prevention against insidious diseases.

Fruits and vegetables

Much has been written about the benefits of fruits and vegetables. Not only is it an endless source of vitamins, minerals and fiber, but it is also a low-calorie diet. If you are going to make a fruit and vegetable menu, do not forget about fruits with a higher proportion of potassium, such as bananas, potatoes, tomatoes, prunes, watermelon or soybeans. Potassium is known to maintain optimal blood pressure and thus prevent stroke. So another good news!

What is taboo

What is taboo: Try to limit the consumption of sugar, white flour, fats, margarine, mineral water (they contain salts that unnecessarily clog the blood vessels), salt, alcohol and any fatty delicacies.
