Take This Immediately After a Stroke

Mini Strokes: A Serious Warning Sign

Mini strokes, while temporary, are a major red flag for a potentially severe stroke. If you experience any of these warning signs, act immediately:

  • Loss of balance

  • Blurry vision

  • Facial drooping on one side

  • Arm or leg weakness

  • Difficulty speaking

Call 911 or your local emergency number without delay. Time is critical for treatment that can minimize the damage from a stroke.

The Potential of Alpha-Tocotrienol

Alpha-tocotrienol, a form of vitamin E, may help protect your brain during a stroke and support recovery afterward. Consult your doctor about taking this if you experience stroke symptoms. Note: Tocotrienols offer multiple health benefits.

Preventing a Stroke

Your daily choices can significantly reduce your stroke risk:

  • Include garlic in your diet.

  • Consider a ketogenic diet.

  • Cut out sugar.

  • Boost omega-3 fatty acids, limit omega-6.

  • Exercise regularly.

Understanding Vitamin E

Vitamin E is crucial for brain health but can be hard to get enough of through diet alone. A diet high in refined grains can deplete your vitamin E. Talk to your doctor about supplementation if you are concerned.

*Please keep in mind that the above is not a medical advice. You should see your doctor about any possible medical conditions.
