Imbiri vine, bull’s eye, micunã, mico powder and mucunã assú. These are the names given to the same plant rich in human health benefits, the stock. Scientifically called Dioclea violacea, the herb belongs to the Papilionaceae family and in addition to being considered ornamental, it also has important medicinal properties for the body.

Stock to fight stroke

Cerebral Vascular Accident (CVA) or simply stroke is the main cause of death in Brazil, so it is necessary that people are aware of this problem and seek methods to prevent it from occurring.

This event can occur when an artery, which carries blood to the brain along with the oxygen and nutrients that this organ needs, is clogged causing brain tissue to die. In this sense, it is called the ischemia process. However, there is another type of stroke, hemorrhagic. In this case, for example, there is a bleeding artery that covers all the brain tissue.

In an ischemia stroke, the patient has difficulty speaking, may not be able to move his arms or legs and feel dizzy. When hemorrhagic effusion occurs, the individual has a sudden headache, vomiting and even fainting. As it puts people’s lives at risk, these problems need to be avoided and one of the appropriate ways is to use a stock, considering that it is tonic and nervous, preventing stroke and its sequelae.

Other uses

In addition to fighting strokes strongly, the stock is a plant that also has other functions in human health, but which are also related to the proper functioning of the brain, especially the nervous system. Thus, it is possible to say that this plant is also an ally of patients who have epilepsy, preventing individuals from having seizures.
