Hello , The weakness following a paralytic stroke is cental ( brain related ) so adding a supplement wouldn't make dramatic difference.
However adding a supplement does no harm and revital is a good combination another such combination is Tab A to Z.
Physiotherapy has a very important here is getting back the strength. Let the physiotherapist teach him exercise which he should do 6- 8 times daily.
Improvement in overall nutrition by adding fruits and nuts in his diet would help too .
