Stroke and Broccoli

Broccoli effective in preventing heart attacks and strokes. According to the researchers, the chemicals contained sulforaphane in broccoli, works to strengthen the immune system to prevent clogged arteries. Several other plant species that also contain chemicals other than broccoli are cauliflower, Brussels sprouts, cabbage, and pak choi.

According to the researchers, who shaped curved arteries greater risk of developing the disease because of lack of protein known as Nrf2. While a straight artery, advanced researchers, protected by the protein. This protection will prevent the cells become inflamed, early indication of heart disease progression. Nrf2 in the arteries that crooked or arterial branching area, according to researchers, will be disturbed by a protein from the area. This will make the protection of Nrf2 function does not work. However, bright researchers, sulforaphane could prove to re-activate Nrf2 in areas at risk of artery and restore the ability of arteries to protect themselves.

Substances produced, according to researchers, could protect these problem areas free from disease for a longer period of time. Researchers found that the inner layer cells on a curved arteries branching and lack of an active Nrf2. This could explain why the area is more at risk of inflammation and disease. Treatment with sulforaphane natural components, shown to reduce the trade in a way to re-activate Nrf2 in the area that is very risky.
