We have more and more people are affected by a stroke at a young age. But there are easy ways to reduce the risk of stroke that is out to get sunlight and the consumption of foods rich in vitamin D such as fish.
Scientists from the U.S. to find people who are deficient in vitamin D is naturally produced by the skin when exposed to sunlight and of diet including nuts and fish oilscan increase the risk of stroke by more than a fifth.
The results of the study a quarter of people with low vitamin D levels had 22 percent higher risk of stroke compared to the levels of vitamin D is high. This suggests thatadequate levels of vitamin D from sunlight as the morning and fish can reduce the chances of a stroke.
Low vitamin D levels increase the likelihood of a person exposed to a common type ofstroke is ischemic stroke in which clotting occurs that clog blood vessels in the brain.
But not only the type of stroke, because low levels can lead to haemorrhagic stroke caused by rupture of blood vessels in the brain.
“Our study confirms that eating foods rich in vitamin D would be beneficial for stroke prevention,” said Dr Gotaro Kojima, one of the researchers, as quoted by the Telegraph.
Dr. Kojima said that getting enough vitamin D from food or supplements may become important for parents because the synthesis of vitamin D from sunlight so it is moredifficult at that age.
These results are based on the conclusion of a 34-year study involving 7,500 peoplemiddle-aged and elderly Japanese-Americans living in one place. Researchers measured vitamin D levels of the participants obtained either from food or sunlight.
Dr. Kojima in the journal Stroke from the American Heart Association recommend that a person should get enough sunlight and vitamin D intake from nuts and fish.
