10 Foods That Unclog Arteries Naturally And Protect Against Heart Attack


While there are juices, smoothies and many detox drinks out there to help flush out your system and get things running smoothly, nature has also provided us with foods that have the same powers, naturally. These 10 foods can help unclog your arteries and protect your heart!

1. Avocados

Instead of mayo on your burger or sandwich, switch it out for some avocado. Studies have shown that daily consumption of avocado results in improved blood cholesterol (lower LDL and higher HDL). HDL cholesterol is the cholesterol that helps keep arteries clear of obstructions.
