How can you improve your heart 's health and unlock your arteries. 

 Many people suffer from clogged arteries which are also known as arteriosclerosis. 

Sugar, refined foods, high blood pressure, obesity, tobacco, stress, alcohol, and other lifestyle factors cause inflammation in the arteries. Cholesterol goes into the arteries to try and heal and patch up damaged tissue.

 However, this starts to form plaque along with calcium and fibrin, which clogs up the arteries and blocks blood flow around the body. This is the leading cause of death in the world as clogged arteries can cause heart attacks, strokes, and pulmonary embolism. Changing your lifestyle immediately is the best way to unclog your arteries and protect your long term health.

 In today's article, we will share with you the steps that you need to take in order to reverse clogged arteries and promote better blood flow to and from the heart.

1. Vitamin K2

When the artery walls become inflamed they become stiff and coated with a plaque made of cholesterol, calcium, and fibrin. Vitamin K2
is one of the most important nutrients to help pull calcium out of the soft tissues in the arteries and put it into the bones where it belongs.
This improves elasticity in the arteries so that the blood can flow more freely, helping to improve blood pressure and lower the risk
of heart attacks.

2. Nattokinase

There is a daily supplement that you can take called Nattokinase, an enzyme extracted from a Japanese food called natto. This enzyme
has some wonderful properties for protecting the heart by helping to prevent blood clots and thin the blood. This is an alternative to aspirin and helps to lower blood pressure and reduce fibrous tissue in the arteries.

3. Antioxidants

The true underlying cause of clogged arteries is inflammation in the artery walls. This is caused by stress, eating junk foods, sugars, alcohol, and a poor lifestyle. Consuming foods rich in antioxidants regularly can help to prevent inflammation in the arteries, which also helps them to heal from oxidation. Some of the best foods rich in antioxidants are leafy green cruciferous vegetables, wheatgrass juice, and CoQ10.

4. Omega 3 Fats

Not all fats and oils are created equally. Most people consume too many low-quality fats like vegetable oil, margarine, trans fats, and fast food which causes inflammation in the arteries over time. Switch these out for high-quality fats rich in omega 3-s like virgin cod liver oil, wild-caught salmon, sardines, chia seeds, flax seeds, extra virgin olive oil, and avocados. These healthy fat sources will lower inflammation in the arteries and help to reduce stiffness and plaquing.

5. Grains

We highly recommend cutting grains out of the diet entirely as these are one of the leading causes of clogged arteries and arterial plaque. Foods with grains include cereals, bread, pasta, pancakes, and also corn-based foods. Switch these out for non-starchy vegetables to up your fiber intake and eat more low sugar berries like strawberries, blackberries, and raspberries.

6. Reduce Cortisol

A large percentage of people have high-stress levels from anger, poor sleep, anxiety, and overeating. This raises the risk of clogging
arteries because it causes an imbalance in hormones like cortisol. Cortisol is known as the stress hormone and can cause damage to the arteries in large amounts. It is very important for every adult to learn how to relax and manage stress. We recommend long slow walks in nature at least 45-minute per day, and a natural herb called Rhodiola.

7. Sleep

People who sleep less than six hours per night were 27% more likely to have a plaque in the arteries of the neck and leg, compared to
those who got 8 hours of sleep. Sleep helps to reduce inflammation in the arteries and restore the body and its hormones. We recommend turning off all devices an hour early before you go to bed and performing gentle stretches to help you sleep.

8. MCT OIL

MCT oil is a unique oil that has some health benefits for the heart and brain. If you have any form of existing heart damage then taking
a little MCT oil daily can help to feed the heart with ketones. These are an alternative fuel source to glucose, which feed the heart tissues directly and help to keep it strong and healthy.

9. Minerals

Getting more bioavailable minerals in the diet is essential when it comes to reversing clogged arteries and strengthening the blood.
Sea vegetables are extremely high in minerals like sea kelp, Irish sea moss, and bladderwrack. You need potassium and magnesium, in particular, to help regulate the heartbeat and protect the muscles in the arteries. This is found in foods like Kale, Brussels Sprouts, Collard greens, and Beet Tops.

10. Daily Drink

Last but not least, we offer a recipe for a powerful daily drink to help strip away plaque from the arteries and strengthen your entire body.

Recipe:

You Will Need: 500ml Water

1 Tablespoon Apple Cider Vinegar

1 Tablespoon Freshly Squeezed Lemon Juice

1/2 Teaspoon Turmeric Powder

1/4 Teaspoon Black Pepper

Method:

Mix these ingredients in a glass and stir well. Drink this once a day to reduce plaque in the arteries and protect them from inflammation.
Feel free to add a little natural sweetener like stevia or erythritol to make this more palatable. 

As you can see there are many improvements you can make to your lifestyle to improve blood flow around the body and unclog the arteries naturally. Remember that the true cause of clogged arteries is not the cholesterol, but actually the inflammation and damage in the first place. Keeping the body full of nutrients from healthy foods and cutting out sugar and alcohol is key to improving this problem.

 Also if you are overweight around the belly area, then you are far more likely to suffer from fatty liver disease and clogged arteries. Always consult your doctor or cardiologist before using any of the above methods, especially if you are taking any daily medications.
