The root cause for a wide range of age-related problems, from tremors, forgetfulness, a stooped posture, trouble walking, depression and anxiety to an increased risk of stroke and heart attack is a very simple one – clogged arteries. There is one simple, natural way you can keep your arteries clear: Watch what you eat
Vegetables are the essential tool. Most important are cruciferous vegetables such as cabbage and leafy greens like spinach, because these are abundant sources of nitric oxide. This vital substance encourages blood vessels to open (or dilate) … to grow more elastic … and to remain plaque-free. You don’t have to eat your veggies plain, of course – mix two servings a day into a filling salad or a tasty smoothie.
