How to keep your arteries clean

January 5, 2009



More and more people are becoming aware of the importance of unclogging their arteries, without a surgical approach. The first thing to be done is to stop doing all such practices, which resulted in atherosclerosis. You need to understand that arteries do not get blocked by chance. One of the major reasons for clogged arteries is your diet. The wrong choice of food materials together with improper exercise regimen is sure to result in the clogging of arteries.

Fat, of course, is a staunch enemy of a healthy heart. But, as we flee from fat based food products, we often fall in the trap of a greater enemy, namely, sugar. It is advisable for people who suffer from coronary ailments to keep away from all forms of harmful fat. Fat from beef lard is not at all beneficial to health. If arteries need to be unclogged, we need to stick to healthier fat versions. Those fats that should be included in diet include omega-3 fatty acids and monounsaturated fats.

Basically, these kinds of beneficial fats are generally found in oily fish, nuts, seeds, and also in fruits such as avocados. You will have to give up all forms of fried foods and oily snacks. They are abundant in trans-fatty acids and are extremely harmful to health. Low-cost vegetable oils should give way to cold-pressed extra virgin olive oil. Hydrogenated oils should also be kept way from one’s diet.

Such oils result in the accumulation of plaque in the arteries and result in the early onset of heart diseases. It should be kept in mind while visiting the food stores that every snack chip, every pastry, every cookie, every cracker, and every baked food, whether sweet or not, contains dietary poison.

The only possible solution is to start reading the cover labels carefully before making purchases. Ensure that hydrogenated oil stuff do not get into our body even in minimal amounts. It is not the name of the oil that is important. If your eyes fall upon the word ‘hydrogenated” on the cover, alarm bells should ring within your mind and ensure that such packets do not find place in your pantry shelves.
