Eat More Fibre to Lower your Stroke Risk

Every 7g of fibre cuts your stroke risk by 7%



That’s according to a British analysis of 20-plus years of research reports. It’s easy to get there: a bowl of wholegrain cereal for breakfast and two servings of fruit or vegetables, and you’re at 7g. While the majority of women get only about half the recommended 25g per day, small bump-ups especially benefit those whose initial intake is low, say the researchers.

If you’ve skipped or skimped on your daily fibre intake, try new Boabab Powder, a superfruit with super-health benefits. Made from the pulp of the baobab fruit, it is 100% natural and serves as a wonderful supplement to your diet. It is packed with essential vitamins, minerals and calcium, with each serving containing 16 times more dietry fibre than pears. Simply add a spoon or two to your smoothies, sprinkle on your yoghurt or even add it to stews. Boabab Powder is available at www.ecoproducts.co.za.
