The ten Supplements for Natural Stroke Recovery are D-Ribose, Coenzyme Q-10, Vitamin B6, Vitamin B12, Fish Oil, Ginkgo Biloba, Taurine, Rutin, Folic Acid, Vinpocetine.
Cells don’t immediately die from a stroke, as was once thought, rather they are heavily compromised due to lack of oxygen. “Neurons within the penumbra are functionally impaired but not yet dead.” (Eng H. Lo, PhD; Michael A. Moskowitz, MD; Thomas P. Jacobs, PhD, 2004).
The Diet-Heart Myth: Statins Don’t Save Lives in People Without Heart Disease
1. CoQ10 aid recovery in stroke patients
it’s a product naturally produced by the body,
is used by the body’s cells to produce the energy
CoQ10 is also known as co-enzyme Q 10, Q10, vitamin Q10, ubiquinone and ubidecarenone.
CoQ10 have antioxidant property, protecting the cells from harmful free radicals.
Natural CoQ10 sources:
CoQ10 is found in all of the body’s tissues but is more concentrated in the heart, liver, kidneys, pancreas and lungs.
CoQ10 is also found in: anchovies, broccoli, beef, salmon, sardines, mackerel, soy oil and peanuts
As we get older, the amount of CoQ10 tends to decrease because the Vitamin B6 also decline in production levels or because a deficiency of vitamin B6. Vitamin B6 can be obtained from chickpeas, avocado, roast beef, fish, chicken breast, tomato and sunflower seeds.
Supplementing with high dosages of coenzyme Q10 energetically invigorates all cells in the human body, particularly the brain and the heart. In a recent study, CoQ10 ubiquinol produced a 56% increase in cellular energy production in the brain. (Pharmacologyonline. 2009;1:817-25).
2. Ginkgo Biloba
3. Vitamins B: B3, B6, B12
Vitamin B3, or niacin – a common water-soluble vitamin – restored a brain’s neurological function after a stroke.
Vitamin B6 assists in the synthesis of four key neurotransmitters: epinephrine, norepinephrine, serotonin, and gamma-aminobutyric acid. As a result, it has long been linked to increased mental energy, clarity, and function
Vitamin B12 It’s involved in the metabolic function of every cell in the body, which makes it critical for those whose body’s systems have been weakened by stroke and related traumas and diseases.
