A prevailing fear in men and women when they hit 30 is untimely death. Take a look around. There are many reported cases of emergency calls and responses that involve people experiencing a sudden stroke and untimely death, embolisms and many other such ailments. The number of these cases is rising in spite of the growing number of knowledge and research on health and wellness.
Now the simple question is; how can we avoid this? Is there a truly effective way? Right here, right now, with full confidence, you can say to yourself—“yes, I do not need to look any further”. And these elements are just all around you. The right diet and supplements, supported with a healthy, active lifestyle is the key; the key to leading healthier, fitter and ultimately, happier lives.
Significant research results point at some amazing and natural choices. These choices are eating more fruits and vegetables and supporting it with healthy doses of Vitamin E.
Past claims has said that the current unhealthy state that most people are in is genetically determined. This cannot be farther from the truth. Epigenetics—the 21st century field of genetic studies has pointed out the fact that genetically predetermined factors such as risks to stroke or obesity can be altered by sound nutrition, healthy exercise and a stress free environment. The food choices you make determine who you are. Eat more junk food and you become physically altered. Eat more fruits and leafy greens so your body and mind develop increased vitality to tackle the day to day stress of life.
The prestigious journal of the American Heart Association “Stroke” has recently released meta-analysis findings on an increase in vegetable consumption. A significant increase on individuals eating of leafy greens and other veggies has indicated that the chances for cardiovascular illness will amazingly lessen and decrease. The study pointed out the fact that in more affluent nations where access to farm fresh produce is high, the incidence of sudden stroke has fallen for the past 40 years. On the other hand, in less affluent nations where access to this healthy repast is poor—stroke and cardiovascular illness is still a killer. The study further pointed out that vegetables will develop the body’s metabolic aspects to be proof against stroke.
– The consumption of 200grams of fruits daily (approximately 3-4 ½ cups) will result in a significant 32% stroke risk decrease.
– For vegetables 200g (essentially 5 servings) of this healthy green stuff will decrease risk of stroke by as much as 11%.
Still yet more eye-opening results of the study have endorsed the potent mix of healthy lifestyle options, exercise and an increase in fruit and vegetable consumption. You get all the benefits of higher fiber, higher macro and micronutrients. This will result in lower blood cholesterol, lower blood pressure, lower body inflammation and better body mass index.
Consider the findings of still yet another study. The study independently done from the previous meta-analysis searched for a secret substance. A substance that is found in fruits and vegetables that helped in post stroke situational recovery and in avoiding sudden vascular attacks. The research team of Dr. Cameron Rink may have found the key. The Vitamin E isomer tocotrienol –previously known to decrease mental decline in Alzheimer’s sufferers –has the ability to block unnatural cholesterol production in the body and alter cholesterol body ratios for the better.
Dr. Rink’s team utilized animal models to determine this miracle breakthrough. For ten weeks they used Vitamin E tocotrienol supplements on the models. The natural stimulation has made the arteries increase in diameter due to greater demand for oxygen. A phenomenon called arteriogenesis. It aids in the prevention of brain damage and supports secondary blood supplies. In effect, a perfect aid to prevent strokes or sudden cardiovascular events.
Natural and healthy are more reasons for all of us to load up on fruits and veggies and get more of the Amazing Vitamin E.
When it comes to Vitamin E, Dr. Patrick Kingsley recommends to:
‘start off with 10,000 IU D3 (yes ten thousand IU) daily for at least two to three weeks and then drop the dose to 5,000IU every day or 10,000IU Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays. You should also take at least 150mcg vitamin K2 at the same time so that all your calcium is directed to where it should go. Without K2, calcium will be deposited in your arteries and around any inflammation. Incidentally, vitamin D has now been established as anti-inflammatory, so good levels are essential’.
Considering that most people do not get the right amount of sun allowing them to produce enough vitamin D, it is highly recommended to supplement on a daily basis.
