Lemon and garlic are commonly used as a seasoning for salads or meat. Nevertheless, people are not aware of the positive effects that these two ingredients offer to their health and body when combined together.
Lemon and garlic combined together are used for lowering the level of cholesterol in the blood, for cleaning clogged arteries and for improving circulation.
High level of cholesterol means that LDL cholesterol has been accumulated in the main arteries which leads to possible heart attack or other heart diseases.
The pharmaceutical industries offer a wide range of products which can help in the fight against these diseases, but why would one struggle for artificial remedies when there are natural and very efficient solutions. Namely, if you add garlic and lemon into your everyday diet, you will provide better circulation and healthier cardiovascular system to your body.
Here’s an effective natural remedy that you can take to keep your arteries healthy.
-1 cup lemon juice
-1 cup grated ginger
-1 cup garlic
-1 cup apple cider vinegar
You should mix all ingredients in a pot and leave this mixture to boil for half an hour. Then, leave it to cool down, and add 3 cups of organic honey. Stir well, and pour the mixture into a glass jar, and keep it in the fridge.
You should take a tablespoon of this remedy before breakfast on a daily basis.
Ginger contains very potent anti-inflammatory compounds called gingerols. Less inflammation, better circulation.
Lemons are rich in vitamin C which can help slow down the progression of atherosclerosis (hardening of the arteries). It helps prevent damage to LDL (“bad”) cholesterol, which then builds up as plaque in the arteries.
You probably don’t know this, but allicin found in garlic react with red blood cells and produce hydrogen sulphide which relaxes the blood vessels, and keeps blood flowing easily. This, in turn, reduces blood pressure, allowing the blood to carry more oxygen to essential organs, and reducing pressure on the heart.
