Arteries are blood-carrying vessels that transport nutrients and oxygen to the rest of the body. In light of weight gain, inactive lifestyles, and obesity, the spike in cholesterol levels might deposit a layer on the inner lining of the arteries, which is commonly known as plaque. This build-up causes blood clots, coronary artery disease or Arteriosclerosis, and chronic conditions caused by a blockage in the carotid which can cause heart attacks, cardiac arrests, hemorrhage strokes, and other cardiovascular conditions.
Here are some drinks that can help detoxify blocked arteries: –
Ginger, Garlic, and Lemon
Boil mashed garlic and ginger. Strain the boiled water and add a squeeze of lemon juice to it. This is an excellent drink to clean your arteries. Have it anytime in the evening. Garlic reduces blood pressure and reduces the hardening associated with arteriosclerosis. It removes the soft plaque deposit from the vessels. The antioxidants in Ginger help in the prevention of plaque formation. Again, the citrus flavonoids in lemon prevent the clogging of arteries.
