Banana in diet – prevention from Stroke
|Taking Banana regularly may be a preventive measure for stroke.According to a study carried out by Dr. Deborah M. Green, M D of Neuroscience Institute at the Queen’s Medical Center in Honolulu, Hawaii, USA, – People with low amount of Potassium in thier diet have increased risk of stroke .People whose potassium intake is low are 1.5 times more prone to have a stroke than those with high intake of potassium. Low intake of potassium means taking less than 2.4 gm of potassium in a day and high intake is more than 4.0 gm per day.
Other studies have also shown that low intake may be associated with increased risk for stroke.
Bananas are rich in potassium. Thus those taking it regularly should not be deficient in potassium.
