Mediterranean Diet Components That Reduce Your Stroke Risk

Consume minimally processed, real foods like fresh fruits, vegetables, nuts, seeds, and whole grains.

Because the Mediterranean people stick to foods that are grown locally, they get more of the good stuff such as antioxidants, fiber, and potassium without additives that contain sodium, which facilitates increases in blood pressure.

Potassium is a major mineral in the body that helps regulate muscle contraction and normal heart functioning. Mediterranean favorites containing plenty of potassium include mandarin oranges, avocados, sweet potatoes, white beans, and fish, like salmon.
