Before you can understand how to unclog arteries it helps to understand how they became clogged in the first place. Arteries become clogged when plaque builds up along the artery walls. Plaque is made up of cholesterol, fat, calcium, inflammatory cells, waste material, protein, and fibrin that are floating around the body.

Unclogging arteries can take as long as it has taken to clog them. You may not even know that you are suffering from clogged arteries as there are no visible symptoms during the entire process. That is why it is usually found in older adults. You can be perfectly healthy and not even know that plaque build-up is occurring throughout the body, including the brain, lungs, arms, and legs.

Before you start on any unclogging arteries regimen you should consult your cardiologist. You may not be healthy enough to do this without a doctor’s supervision.

Another method of how to unclog arteries includes supplementing your diet with vitamins, minerals and other supplements that can help break up the plaque and reduce any inflammation the plague has caused. Omega-3 oils that are found in fish and plants are one type of supplement that can be added to the diet to help work plaque free from artery walls. If you are on a low cholesterol diet, you can supplement your cooking oil with pumpkin seed oil which is low in carbohydrates and contains no trans fatty acids, gluten, or dairy. Additionally, the magnesium and potassium in the oil helps regulate blood pressure.

One glass of pomegranate juice every day has also been found to help increase the blood flow in patients, lower cholesterol, and reduce the risk of blood clots.
