Royal River Natural Foods publishes results of study that shows folic acid can reduce stroke risk in people with high blood pressure.

Royal River Natural Foods, a locally-owned independent natural health store in Freeport, Maine, reports a new study that found people with high blood pressure who took folic acid along with standard blood pressure medication were 21 percent less likely to have had a stroke after 4.5 years of follow-up compared to those who took blood pressure medication alone.

The report is part of the July 2015, issue of Natural Insights for Well Being®, which Royal River Natural Foods publishes free each month for those in the Freeport community interested in new nutrition science. Also in the July issue, pre-diabetic women who took vitamin K had lower insulin and blood sugar levels compared to those who did not take vitamin K; and female students who took ginger root capsules had as much relief from menstrual pain as with standard pain medication, among other important findings.

“New evidence continues to show that everyday nutrients help not only improve the quality of daily life, but also extend healthy living as we age,” said Becky Foster, supplement manager. “New findings this month include well respected, peer-reviewed scientific journals such as the ‘Journal of the American Medical Association,’ the ‘Journal of Diabetes and Metabolic Disorders,’ the ‘Archives of Gynecology & Obstetrics,’ among others,” Foster said.

Natural Insights for Well Being® is free, and Royal River Natural Foods invites all those who wish to gain more valuable nutrition knowledge to stop in and pick up the July issue and meet the friendly, knowledgeable staff.
