Life after a stroke:
tapping new superpowers
David Kenyatta had a stroke when he was just 38. Hypertension runs in family and strokes killed both his mom and sister. Kenyatta now keeps close tabs on his health and is proud to be a stroke survivor.
Simple steps to prevent a stroke
- Get active: Walking for 15 minutes each day can help promote healthy blood pressure.
- Fiber up: Getting an additional 7g of fiber each day can help keep a healthy weight and reduce buildup in blood vessels.
- Stop smoking: Tobacco usage accelerates clot formation by thickening blood and increasing plaque buildup in arteries.
- Eat smart: A diet rich in brain-healthy snacks like walnuts, avocados and other omega-3 boosting foods can reduce the risk of stroke.
