What to eat to clean your arteries?

First, let’s take a look at the foods and substances that can lead to heart disease in the first place. Heart problems begin in the endothelial layer of your arteries—the permeable membrane that lines your vascular system and lymphatic system.

Inflammation is induced when the endothelial layer of your arteries is exposed to the following:

•Stress

•Sugar

•Refined carbohydrates

•Seed oils (canola, soy, corn)

•Chronic alcohol use

•Chronic smoking habits

The Coronary Artery Calcification Test (CAC test) and the Heart Rate Variability test are excellent predictors of mortality by assessing damage in your cardiovascular system. You can also measure the small-dense particle size of LDL, test your homocysteine levels, and test for the MTHFR gene. Fortunately, there are foods that can help clean out your arteries and undo cardiovascular damage.

Here are nine foods that can unclog and support the health of your arteries:

1. Omega-3 from salmon, sardines, other fatty fish, and cod liver

2. Extra virgin olive oil

3. Dark leafy greens

4. Authentic parmesan cheese (Parmigiano)

5. Nutritional yeast (non-fortified)

6. Raw sauerkraut

7. Almonds

8. Liver

9. Grass-fed red meat
