Can’t Decide What to Eat? Try One of These Salad Kits.

Magnesium-Rich Foods to Prevent a Stroke

More magnesium may mean a lower risk of stroke.

Researchers looked at seven studies that followed a total of roughly 240,000 people for eight to 15 years.

This may seem like a low number, but simple changes or additions in diet may offer complementary benefits. Preparing foods to prevent a stroke will often coincide with eating foods that are good for your overall health.
