A group of American specialists have managed to figure out that to prevent a heart attack or stroke has meaning every day to eat only one fruit of the avocado or more.
This fact is explained by the presence in these products a large amount of potassium, beneficial effects on the degree of elasticity of blood vessels, gradual loss which significantly increases the risk of heart attack and stroke.
Similar conclusions were reached in a series of experiments on rodents demonstrated a tendency to cardiovascular diseases due to the rich fats of the daily diet.
The animals were divided into three groups, the first of which received the potassium in a small, second – sufficient and the third is an excess amount.
Mice fed a lot of potassium, loss of vessel elasticity was not as pronounced. The same applies to the aorta.
