13 Foods that help keep arteries clean and protect against heart attacks

Nov 14, 2019 | Blog

Over the years, plaque can accumulate inside of artery walls, increasing the risk of heart disease and stroke. Fortunately, the human body has the ability to heal itself, and clogged arteries might be cleared by adhering to a healthful diet. Eating plenty of fruit (including kiwi, red grapes, pomegranates) and vegetables (spinach and tomatoes) can play a big role in reversing clogged arteries. Foods as varied as garlic, walnuts and green tea provide similar benefits. Improving one’s diet, in combination with exercise and stress reduction, is a key to living a healthier, longer life.

Key Takeaways:

    • Cantaloupes and kiwi fruit can both help reduce fatty buildup in arteries and help the body to use fat for energy instead of retaining it in arteries.
    • The flavonoids in red grapes and berries can help reduce plaque accumulation and harmful oxidative stress.
    • Whether chopped up raw or roasted in the oven, garlic may help control cholesterol and blood pressure.

“When arteries clog, it can lead to a problem for the whole body. Unlike a house whose plumbing has become blocked, unfortunately, we cannot call a plumber to deal with our arteries.”

Here is a list of foods to help with the heart:

Fish oil

Red grapes and berries


Apples and grapefruit


Olive oil


Green Tea
