Broccoli can prevent the blockage of arteries due to its richness in vitamin K. Vitamin K in broccoli helps prevent calcium from destroying the arteries. Broccoli is full in fiber and also prevents cholesterol oxidation, which minimizes stress and lowers blood pressure. Stress can cause plaque accumulation and tear of the arterial walls. Broccoli also has sulforaphane which assists the body to use protein. This helps in preventing the buildup of plaque in the arteries. For maximum benefits, the recommended consumption quantity of broccoli is two or three servings per week. This is another versatile vegetable that can be steamed, roasted, or grilled and can still make a great side dish.
Making these modifications to your diet can boost your health and prevent arterial blockages. Fortunately, these alternatives are nutritious and offer endless opportunities for creativity and new recipes.
