Experts have concluded that the risk of stroke decreases by 9 percent with every 25 grams of white fruits and vegetables consumed per day.
According to scientists, fruits and vegetables with white flesh can reduce the likelihood of stroke due to their unique antioxidants. After all, a stroke occurs when blood flow to the brain is impeded.
According to scientists, pears are the most effective among such fruits and vegetables. In particular, they are able to normalize blood pressure and cholesterol thanks to natural fiber known as pectin. As you know, this is an undigested dietary fiber that forms a gelatinous mass that collects toxic substances from the intestinal walls.
“Pears are a good source of fiber and several useful plant compounds including catechins (antioxidants). Also found in apples and cocoa, it can help lower blood pressure, improve blood vessel health and prevent blood clots,” say researchers at the University of Rochester (USA).
In 2011, a group of researchers suggested that pears could protect the brain from stroke. Therefore, the researchers studied the medical records of more than 20,000 people aged 40, and no one had cardiovascular disease at the time.
In ten years, 233 strokes occurred among the subjects. It is noted that those who regularly ate pears, apples, and vegetables with white flesh were 52% less likely to have a stroke.
