9 Artery Cleansing Wonder Foods Post Image

A Doctor may give a wide options, such as enzyme supplements to anyone diagnosed with clogged arteries. In extreme cases, surgery is recommended. There are foods which we can eat in order to help unclog arteries naturally.

1. Garlic:

The greatest wonder food of them all! Try to eat at least 1 to 3 cloves a day, raw or cooked. Studies showed that regular consumption of garlic reduces cholesterol by at least 10 percent, and helps maintain clean arteries. When garlic is crushed or chewed in raw form, it will produce “allicin”. Allicin cannot be formed from cooked garlic.. Allicin is an antibiotic and antifungal compound. It also helps speedy recovery from strep throat…

2. Grape Juice:

Grape skin/seed extract possess fantastic heart-health properties. Made from whole grapes, it is effective in clearing arteries. It contains powerful flavonoids (natural anti oxidants from plants) which prevent cholesterol stickage, reduces inflammation and blood clots and keeps blood vessels clear.

3. Cherries

The tasty fruit contains more than 17 compounds that help unclog clogged arteries. These compounds give cherries their red color.

4. Strawberries:

Similar to cherries, they contain a wide range of compounds which cut cholesterol levels and help clear out arteries. Strawberries are also packed full of antioxidants.

5. Sweet Potatoes:

Jam packed with cholesterol-lowering fiber, beta carotene, and other compounds, a great food to help clear up you arteries.

6. Green Tea

Just one cup a day of quality green tea contains a large number of flavinoids which provides antioxidant protection. In addition, green tea contains ‘procyanidins’, which help prevent the formation of blood clots.

7. Olive Oil:

Omega-3 fatty acids are in abundance in olive oil, which counters the inflammatory effects of omega-6 found in vegetable oils. Particles of LDL, or bad cholesterol which is found in olive oil are much less likely to become oxidized than they are in other oils. Only oxidized cholesterol can stick to your artery walls and clog them up.

8. Salmon:

Another great source of omega- 3 fats. Herring and tuna are also recommended. Wild salmon, is particularly rich in the omega-3 fats, and these help keep your arteries clean. Wild salmon is better than deep water fish such as tuna, as they contain less toxins.

9. Spinach:

Packed with vitamin C and vitamin A. These compounds help prevent cholesterol from becoming oxidized. This helps prevent clogging and helps to release plaque lining the arteries.
