A balanced Mediterranean diet can reduce arteriosclerosis and thus prevent a stroke.

What you should pay attention to in your diet.

Our physical and mental health not only depends on our makeup, but also to a certain extent on our dietary habits.

Even diseases and chronic inflammations such as diabetes, rheumatism, arthrosis and acne can be positively or negatively influenced by food.

If we eat unhealthily and unbalanced, certain symptoms often worsen.

The risk of cardiovascular diseases such as heart attack and stroke increases with the regular consumption of certain foods such as red meat - at the same time there are foods that can clean the arteries and thus prevent a stroke.

There are two types of stroke: ischemic and hemorrhagic.

An ischemic stroke occurs due to a circulatory disorder or a lack of blood, the hemorrhagic stroke is caused by bleeding in the brain.

In about 80 percent of cases, a lack of blood is the cause of the stroke, according to the

The circulatory disorder is caused by a blocked vessel in the brain, which in many cases is due to hardening of the arteries, so-called arteriosclerosis.

These are fatty deposits that lead to a thickening of the inner wall of larger or smaller arteries and constrictions (stenosis).

You should know five symptoms that announce a stroke.

You can largely influence the risk and extent of arteriosclerosis yourself by treating risk factors such as high blood pressure and diabetes, but also through your diet.

Prevent stroke: Studies show that a Mediterranean diet protects

Various studies such as the study by the Department of Preventive Medicine and Public Health of the Faculty of Medicine at the University of Navarra in Spain and a study by the Italian Society of Nutrition have shown that a so-called "Mediterranean diet" can prevent strokes.

For this reason, internists and cardiologists as well as nutritionists recommend the Mediterranean diet to people who are at increased risk of a stroke.

The basics of the Mediterranean diet are:

  • Daily: vegetables, fruit, whole grains, legumes, olive oil

  • Every few days only: dairy, eggs, wine

  • No more than once or twice a week: fish, poultry

  • Rarely: red meat

It is not only the individual foods that are important, but also the associated nutritional principle: Mediterranean cuisine is considered to be fresh, regional and seasonal as well as varied and healthy.

The Spaniards, Greeks and Italians are leading the Germans and are among the healthiest people in Europe.
