Stroke occurs when the blood supply to the brain is interrupted, therefore depriving oxygen and nutrients. A patient may experience sudden weakness in muscle strength, dizziness, difficulty in speaking and seeing, headache and numbness.
The blood supply is very important for the normal functioning of the brain cell. Without it, the brain cells will die and unfortunately they cannot regrow like cells in other parts of the human body.
Palm-derived Vitamin E tocotrienols are powerful antioxidants that have long shown potential to help prevent stroke, demonstrating neuroprotective benefits for the human brain.
In the event of a stroke attack, tocotrienols can prevent brain cells from dying and also improve blood flow during the unfortunate event. This ability to protect the brain is crucial as it will substantially affect a stroke patient’s survival and quality of life.
