Can this seaweed nutrient reduce the risk of a stroke?
For vegetarians and vegans, the B vitamins can prove more troublesome and elusive than most other nutrients.These compounds, which play an essential role in heart health and a happy metabolism, are typically derived from animal products. Deficiencies in vitamin B12, in particular, are especially common among individuals who adhere to these dietary restrictions and can lead to anemia, nerve system damage and other serious health concerns.
A recent study from Zhengzhou University in China has shed light on another potential benefit of vitamin B consumption – lowered stroke risk. A ScienceDaily press release states that the researchers intended to clarify a backlog of conflicting data on this connection. Upon reviewing 14 previous investigations, they discovered that the likelihood of this event – which occurs when blood cannot reach a certain part of the brain – dropped by an average of 7 percent among people who took vitamin B supplements in some form. Further research is necessary to confirm this relationship, but it may still be worthwhile to speak to a nutritionist or physician about vitamin B supplements.
