Did you know that despite the brain being 2% of the mass of the body, it uses 25% of the available oxygen supply?
And did you know that if joined up all the arteries in the brain end to end that it is more than 160,000km long?
That’s a lot of distance to look after, and many places where the arteries could either block up or bleed through, resulting in what we know as stroke.
One of the best ways to look after our blood vessels is by looking after our insides. One key part is diet, and the other is aerobic exercise.
