Writes about this The Express.

Doctors call ischemic stroke one of the most common strokes in patients. The disease is very dangerous. One of the reasons for its occurrence is a detached blood clot. It disrupts normal blood circulation.

There are 4 main factors that affect the state of blood vessels in our body – scientists say. And if you adhere to basic rules, then the risk of stroke will be negligible. First, I recommend revising your diet. The fact is that not only the UK suffers from obesity.

The percentage of overweight people is growing inexorably. Everything is connected due to excessive consumption of junk food. Replace chips with vegetables and fruits, sweet drinks for herbal tea. Skip store-bought sauces. Start cooking with fresh ingredients. You will notice dramatic changes:

  • improve your mood;
  • the skin will look younger;
  • lose weight;
  • you will feel lightness in the body.

Second, never exclude sports from your life. Swimming, jogging, tennis, walking in the fresh air. Cardio will keep your cardiovascular system healthy. It is necessary to devote at least 1 hour a day to active physical activity.

Thirdly, you need to give up nicotine and alcohol. Vapes, hookahs and e-cigarettes are just as harmful as regular cigarettes. Limit your consumption of alcoholic beverages. The weekly norm, which will not harm the body, is 350 mg.

The fourth factor is chronic illness. Diabetes mellitus, blood pressure, kidney failure, etc. Treat your body with trepidation and care, consult your doctor. Don’t miss your medication. And you yourself will feel how qualitatively your life will change.
