If you’re health conscious, you have probably heard that proper diet and exercise are ways to reduce the risk of heart attack and stroke. Strokes are the number one cause of serious long-term disability in our country. Statistics show that each year, around 750,000 people in the US suffer strokes, and more than 15 percent of the time, the stroke is fatal. Those who survive a stroke are at a greater risk for a second stroke. Hybrid Nutraceuticals, makers of MiracleMulti™ multivitamins, wants you to be aware of the benefits of Vitamin B-1 (thiamine) to help reduce the risk of strokes and heart attacks.
Research shows that elevated levels of the amino acid homo-cysteine increases the risk of stroke. So how can you reduce the homo-cysteine levels to lower the risk of stroke?
During a study that analyzed more than 55,000 people over a three-year period, people who took Vitamin B-1 supplements had 7 percent fewer strokes compared with people who took placebos. The researchers credited the reduced number of strokes to lower levels of homo-cysteine, and the reduction of homo-cysteine was attributed to Vitamin B-1 supplements. The clinical evidence supports supplementing your diet with a sufficient amount of Vitamin B-1 to reduce the risk of stroke.
Vitamin B-1 has also been shown to boost immune function, helping your body to fight off colds and flu. The minimum recommended daily allowance of Vitamin B-1 is 1.1 to 1.4 milligrams per day, as reported by the National Academy of Science. Vitamin B-1 also improves the health of your eyes, nervous system and cardiovascular system. There are many natural ways to add thiamine-rich foods to an everyday diet. Food sources of thiamine include beef, liver, dried milk, nuts, oats, oranges, pork, eggs, seeds, legumes, peas and yeast.
The numerous health benefits of Vitamin B-1 and its ability to reduce the risk of stroke is compelling. MiracleMulti™ multivitamins are specially formulated for optimal health, and contain well over the recommended daily allowance of Vitamin B-1.
