I wonder do you know that if we have three bananas a day, we can significantly reduce your risk of stroke or a heart attack? British and Italian researchers, concluded that consuming one banana for breakfast, one for lunch, one in the evening, provide enough potassium to reduce risk of a blood clot in the brain. All that reduced by 21%.
Report in Journal of the American College of Cardiology, is suggesting that stroke cases could be prevented or reduced by the potassium levels that certain foods have, such as bananas, fish, spinach, and lentils. Daily potassium intake of around 1,600 mg lowers stroke risk. Average-sized banana contains near 500 mg of potassium—so three a day lower blood pressure also help with proper brain and nerve function.
