Pomegranate is a sweet red fruit that can prevent coronary artery disease, with numerous studies that prove it. The fruit can reverse the progressive thickening of the coronary arteries which leads to accumulation of fat and is the main culprit for atherosclerosis.
According to scientists, pomegranate extracts can lower the oxidative stress levels, lower the lipid accumulation in the heart, lower the infiltration of macrophages in the heart muscle and prevent inflammatory diseases.
A study from 2004 found out that pomegranate extract can unclog arteries easily. The study involved a 3-year research conducted in Israel which showed interesting results – according to the scientists, only a glass of pomegranate juice can reverse the stenosis of carotid arteries by 29% in a year, which is pretty amazing.
Include more of this delicious fruit in your diet to prevent arterial plaque, get more vitamin C, treat your bad (LDL) cholesterol and reinforce your cardiovascular system.
