Can an Antioxidant-Rich Diet Reduce Oxidative Stress and Promote Functional Recovery after Stroke?
Division:Life Sciences
Region:Eastern Newfoundland
City:St. John's, NL
Abstract:This project was designed to investigate reduction of detrimental effects of free oxygen radicals after ischemic stroke using dietary supplementation with 14.3% blueberries and 3.3% spirulina for four weeks prior to induction of stroke in rats. Behavioral, biochemical and histological indices were analyzed. Evidence gathered supported the hypothesis that antioxidant rich diet ameliorated the deleterious effects of stroke with statistical significance at two weeks.
