11 Foods That Unclog Arteries, Fight Heart Disease, And Help You Live Longer by: Robin Marri Miller – Off the Grid News

Do you exercise regularly, eat healthy foods, do not smoke nor drink alcohol excessively? If that is you, then congratulations, you are in the 2.7 percent of Americans who live a healthy lifestyle. However, the other 97.3 percent live dangerously, even deadly, lifestyles.

It’s not too late to turn your health around, however, with exercise and the right diet. Eating certain foods can help to literally unclog your arteries, resulting in a major reduction in the risk of heart disease.

To help, here is a list of foods that you should be eating regularly:

1. Asparagus

Asparagus comes in at the top of the list because it’s full of minerals, fiber and vitamins, such as B1, B2, C, E and K which can lower blood pressure and prevent clots from forming. For maximum vitamin potential, try steaming raw asparagus.

2. Broccoli

Broccoli is loaded with vitamin K, which helps prevent calcification and the hardening of arteries. It is also full of antioxidants and fiber, which averts oxidation of LDL cholesterol, normalizes blood pressure, and reduces stress that may cause tears and plaque build-up in arterial walls ─ all leading to severe heart conditions.

3. Avocados

Studies show that a daily consumption of avocados literally results in improved cholesterol levels with a decrease of the bad cholesterol by 22 percent and an increase of good cholesterol by 11 percent.

Additionally, avocados are full of fiber, antioxidants, vitamins and minerals.

4. Cinnamon

According to studies, adding one teaspoon of ground cinnamon to your food daily will help reduce your high cholesterol levels.

A simple way to get a daily dose of cinnamon is to add a teaspoon to your tea or coffee.
