In this video, we’re going to talk about what to eat to support the health of your arteries. First, let’s take a look at the foods and substances that can lead to heart disease in the first place.

Heart problems begin in the endothelial layer of your arteries—the permeable membrane that lines your vascular system and lymphatic system.

Inflammation is induced when the endothelial layer of your arteries is exposed to the following:
•Refined carbohydrates
•Seed oils (canola, soy, corn)
•Chronic alcohol use
•Chronic smoking habits

The Coronary Artery Calcification Test (CAC test) and the Heart Rate Variability test are excellent predictors of mortality by assessing damage in your cardiovascular system.

You can also measure the small-dense particle size of LDL, test your homocysteine levels, and test for the MTHFR gene.

Fortunately, there are foods that can help clean out your arteries and undo cardiovascular damage.

Here are nine foods that can unclog and support the health of your arteries:
1. Omega-3 from salmon, sardines, other fatty fish, and cod liver
2. Extra virgin olive oil
3. Dark leafy greens
4. Authentic parmesan cheese (Parmigiano)
5. Nutritional yeast (non-fortified)
6. Raw sauerkraut
7. Almonds
8. Liver
9. Grass-fed red meat

    I took your advice and haven’t been overtraining as much as I used to, but I have recently added ¼ tsp of real salt before bed, and my sleep has improved ALOT! I might kick off tomorrow with a teaspoon or so of cold-pressed Currant Seed Oil on my broccoli Sprouts 🙂 Thanks a bunch, Dr. Berg!

    • @Barbara_Banks_1 says:

      Awesome! I was just thinking about electrolyte balance. And of course depending on our personal health conditions it can be like a maze, figuring out what’s best for us personally. Like you, I’m thankful for Dr. Berg who sheds light, and helps the public with some direction. Thank you for sharing this. I still have a lot to figure out because of my own conditions. God bless, and I wish you well on your health journey.

    Happy 2024 dr. Berg, hope your able to hit a goal or 2 this year, and thanks for all the helpful content

  • @garystotler3149 says:

    Just some thoughts:
    All wild game is organic unless they are eating gmo crops from a field.

    In winter there is no pasture grass, so cattle are fed hay. Almost all hay fields are sprayed with weed killer, which gets in the hay, which gets into the animal, which gets into you.

    It takes most large meat animals longer than one season to mature so most will go through a winter and have to eat hay.

    Still, you might find truly organic meat, but we can barely afford supermarket meat these days, and organic is even more expensive.

    • @jamieszuba1758 says:

      Ww need to tell our local leaders how important cattle/meat is to us. They are trying to regulate and price us out.

    • @AwesomeK285 says:

      Why do they spray the hay with weed killer, are cow can eat weed and healthier for them as well? I’ve been getting my grassfed beef locally but forgot to ask them if they spay anything on their hay or grass🤦‍♀️.

    • @drewr9580 says:

      Cows are able to detoxify much of these potentially dangerous chemicals

  • @1TruckerGreg says:

    Thanks Dr. Eric my mom just had triple bypass at 65 and I’ve doubled down on my heart health and my heath in general. Been watching you for couple years and really love this channel keep doing what you do we all Love you and the information you share!

  • @MarshaMacPhee says:

    Happy New Year, Dr. Berg and everyone! Thank you for another very informative video! 🙏🏼🤍✨ Grateful for truthful knowledge. All the BEST in 2024 🎉🥳🥑🍋🫐

  • @HeleneNutrientsRich says:

    Glad to hear you say that grass fed meat is leaner and healthier. I had a big question on this because meats from healthy animals, not diabetic is very different than meats from animals that are sick, fat and medicated.

    • @jimrutherford2773 says:

      Remember, grass finished is better than just grass fed only because the cattle are finished off with a ton of grain to fatten them up for sale.

  • @kt6332 says:

    I can’t afford anymore testing seeing the medical field depleted my savings account with negative and no positive results. But!! I will continue to improve my healthy eating and be happy with feeling better! Thanks for sharing your knowledge!!

  • @AwesomeK285 says:

    My brother recently had a bypass surgery just at 49 years old. He was lucky it was caught on time. He’s smoking and has bad eating habits. Even after the surgery I shared many information that you provided, he still can’t make a change. I’m fear that it will come back later 🤦‍♀️

    • @dragosxtc1901 says:

      There’s little chance you can change him, I tried the same with my father who has heart issues and no success, and with other people in other areas of life, in general it’s hard to convince people to take healthy steps or improve their life if they don’t want it or don’t care about it, the rate is usually 2%, that shouldn’t stop you though, it’s your brother

  • @Rygo-wk3jm says:

    Your videos are awesome. Keep up the great work!

  • @dougm2250 says:

    Thank you Doc for all you do! And Happy new year!

  • @MrCoo0ooL says:

    Thank you Dr Berg for such informative video… My 65 years old father is having high bp oftenly and I am going to add these things in his diet plan(veg items) . Happy new year.

  • @AphoticGloom says:

    I started my journey almost 4 weeks ago by taking your advice with fresh food and 18:6 intermittent fasting. The results have been physically and mentally extremely positive due to having that knowledge, thanks to you! I have lost 15lbs so far and I will continue this life-long journey. I tried eating healthy earlier this year, but it was the intermittent fasting that my body needed as well. Quite a bit of the foods on this list is what I consume, so that’s a great sign. Let’s all hope for a successful New Year in 2024 and I hope to share my results when the time comes!
