Drinking two cups of this drink daily can reduce the risk of stroke

Published on

One study concluded that drinking cherry juice can significantly reduce the risk of stroke or heart attack. To do this, you need to drink the drink daily.

This is because the drink is rich in healthy plant compounds, namely polyphenols, which work to lower blood pressure and cholesterol, thus protecting against cardiovascular diseases.

The study was published in the journal Nutrients It was also found that those who consumed the drink were less susceptible to inflammation and oxidative stress that cause serious diseases.

Study details

As part of the study, a team led by the University of Delaware in the US investigated the effects of cherry juice on 34 men and women between the ages of 65 and 80.

They consumed 480 ml of juice per day or a control drink over the course of 12 weeks.

Cherry juice is the drink that can prevent stroke, according to the study

The team noted that cherry juice reduced “bad cholesterol” or LDL (low-density lipoprotein) by 11%.

Ultimately, participants in the cherry group had lower systolic blood pressure and LDL cholesterol. In addition, there were also lower levels of certain substances in the blood, indicating inflammation and oxidative stress.

High blood pressure and cholesterol levels are major factors that contribute to problems such as heart attacks, strokes, and cardiovascular disease.

What is a stroke?

Stroke is short for cerebrovascular accident, also known as “stroke.”

A stroke occurs when there is an interruption in blood flow to part of the brain or when a blood vessel in the brain ruptures.

These conditions can lead to a lack of oxygen and nutrients in brain cells, causing irreversible damage within minutes.

There are two main types of strokes:

  • Ischemic stroke: Occurs due to a blockage or blockage in a blood vessel that prevents blood flow to the brain.
  • Hemorrhagic stroke: A blood vessel in the brain ruptures, causing bleeding within brain tissue or on the surface of the brain. This can be caused by arterial hypertension (high blood pressure), brain aneurysms, head trauma, or arteriovenous malformations.
