Either way, when the oxygen and nutrients supply to brain cells stops, they start dying.Symptoms of stroke depend on the area of the brain that is getting damaged as each area of brain controls different part of the body.Common symptoms of stroke are sudden weakness, dizziness, fall, loss of especially in one eye. Severe sudden headache and loss of speech are warning signs of stroke.

Benefits of Turmeric in Stroke Treatment:

Studies show that turmeric is tremendously useful in the prevention of strokes as well as heart attacks.

Curcuminn, the yellow pigment of turmeric, which is an active ingredient of turmeric, is known for its anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties. It lowers cholesterol level in blood, and inhibits the oxidation of cholesterol (LDL). Oxidized cholesterol is responsible for deposits in blood vessel, which may form plaque and damage the blood vessels. Thus turmeric prevents the formation of deposits in blood vessels which are the main cause of stroke. Turmeric also prevent the formation of blood clots in damaged blood vessels and therefore useful in reducing the blockage of arteries. Turmeric also thin blood so it must be used after consultation with your doctor, if you on blood-thinning medication. Studies done on rabbits indicate that turmeric is able to re-generate the damaged cells affected due to stroke.
