A good eating regime is the first natural way to keep your arteries working properly and avoid plaque build-up. What is an appropriate diet for healthy arteries? Eating plenty of fresh, minimally processed food is essential. These are packed with nutrients and low in dangerous trans-fats. According to Dr. Stengler, in his book, The Natural Physician's Healing Therapies eating right means eating plenty of fresh fruits and vegetables, fiber-rich foods, and fish such as salmon, mackerel, herring, and sardines
Among vegetables, cauliflower, cabbage, broccoli, brussel sprouts (cruciferous plants in general) have plenty of antioxidants, which are known to combat different type of diseases. Regarding fruits, colorful fruits, especially those reds, yellow, blue and or purple, should be ingested. Again, they are densely packed with antioxidants. Strawberries, blueberries, cranberries and many other colorful fruits are powerfully high in antioxidant foods.
Deep-water fish is essential to keep your arteries healthy because they contain high levels of omega-3 fatty acids, which have anti-inflammatory properties and help to keep your blood thin enough to avoid clots and deposits. Flaxseed and walnuts also have important amounts of omega-3 fatty acids.
