You don't want to experience a stroke: you may not survive it, or it may leave you disabled. There are several things you can implement to help prevent strokes, but the research reviewed here investigated one very simple prevention technique.
The investigators used published research to assess stroke events and the association between vitamin B supplementation in 54,913 participants (Ji Y, et.al., 2013). They found that B vitamin supplementation significantly reduced stroke events because it reduced homocysteine, which is a toxic amino acid. Interestingly, no significant benefit was found using vitamin B12 alone.
It can't be much simpler, just take a good quality vitamin B-complex every day!
Be aware that not all vitamin B-complex formulas are equal. There is more than one form of the B vitamins, and some forms provide more benefits than others. Providing the metabolites of the B vitamins is also an additional way of ensuring that you receive all the benefits you can from your B vitamin formula.
