10 Foods that You Should Eat Daily for Clean Arteries

Asparagus is a natural artery-clearing food. It can lower blood pressure and prevent blood clots.

The B vitamins, especially B6, in asparagus help lower H0mocysteine (an amino acid linked to heart disease) and C-reactive protein (a marker of inflammation) levels.

A 2005 study published in Circulation reports that elevated H0mocysteine levels indicate an increased risk of CAD and blood clots in the arteries and veins. To lower the elevated levels, vegetables like asparagus are helpful due to the high folic acid and vitamins B6 and B12 content.

It also stimulates the body’s production of glutathione, an antioxidant that helps fight inflammation and prevent damaging oxidation that can lead to clogged or blocked arteries. Plus, the vitamin K in asparagus prevents hardening of the arteries and keeps calcium out of the arterial linings.

Eat this tasty vegetable on a regular basis as much as possible. You can eat it as an appetizer or side dish.
