We all know that arteries carry oxygenated blood from the heart to all parts of the body. Doctors say that the arteries are healthy only when blood flows through them very smoothly and the walls in the arteries remain smooth. But with time and age, and with bad eating habits and unhealthy lifestyles, the arteries accumulate plaque leading to clogging, which obstructs the smooth flow of blood, thereby causing heart diseases and heart attacks. Like we say, it is better to be cautious from the very beginning rather than to be careful once the damage is done. So, detoxifying or unclogging arteries should be a part of our daily routine.
Presenting Three Essential Home Remedies for Unclogging Arteries:
1. Garlic and Lemon Drink
- Method of Preparation: Take around 20-30 garlic cloves, remove the skin and wash them properly. Take 4-5 organic lemons preferably the ones with thin skin, wash them thoroughly. Cut the lemons with their skin in small pieces. Chop the garlic too. Now put the garlic and lemon pieces in a blender to make a puree. Now mix this with a litre of water and boil it. Once done, let it cool. Now, strain and pour the liquid content in a glass bottle. Seal the bottle and keep it in the fridge. Throw away the pulp.
- Method of Consumption: Drink half a cup of this drink one or two hours before or after your main meal. Shake the bottle well before use. Continue with this drink for three consecutive weeks. Take a break for a week. Then again, repeat the drink with a new mix.
- Result: You will notice a youthful regeneration of the whole body. It not only helps in clearing the blockage in arteries and lowering cholesterol but is also helpful in preventing calcification, bad hearing and bad eyesight.
Garlic and Lemon Benefits
The most important medicinal ingredient in garlic is allicin which makes garlic abound with anti-viral, anti-bacterial, anti-fungal and anti-oxidant properties. Lemons have different nourishing elements like vitamin C, vitamin B, proteins, phosphorous, carbohydrates, flavonoids, which make lemon a wonder drug for various ailments. Lemon rinds or peels have rutin, which can strengthen the walls of blood vessels.
2. Pomegranate Juice
Drink a glass of pomegranate juice every day. Don’t drink the readymade juices. Instead make fresh juice at home and drink. One pomegranate a day is sufficient to show its wonderful health benefits.
Medical studies have always pointed out that pomegranate is very beneficial in preventing cardiovascular diseases. It is very rich in vitamin C. One main cause of clogged arteries and cardiovascular disease is the deficiency in vitamin c. It is rich in polyphenols which makes it rich in anti-oxidant and anti-inflammatory properties, good for lowering blood pressure.
3. Green Tea
Doctors have also advised to drink a cup of green tea, twice or thrice a day to reduce the clogging of arteries. The reason being, green tea has protective benefits for arteriosclerosis. It has polyphenols like flavonoids and catechins. These are powerful anti-oxidants. Green tea also has amino acid L-theanine, which makes the blood thinner. It prevents the oxidation of cholesterol. Consuming green tea on a regular basis helps prevent blood clots formation and lead to a healthy “endothelium”, the tissues that line your blood vessels and heart.
