Heart Healthy Foods You Should Eat 8
Turmeric can prevent clot formation and reduce plaque buildup. A wide range of heart disorders are the result of plaque buildup which causes blood clots to form in the arteries of the brain or heart. Strokes and heart attacks are usually the outcome of the accumulation of blood clots in the arteries. Turmeric is said to minimize the risk of blood platelets forming clots. It does this by relaxing the blood vessels and preventing heart attack.
The best ways to get Turmeric into your diet is by drinking it as a tea, blend it up in a smoothie or juice it.
For the tea just bring 1 cup of water to a boil and then stir in ¼ teaspoon of ground turmeric or fresh grated turmeric. Allow it to simmer for 10 minutes and strain before drinking. You can stir in honey or fresh lemon juice for added flavor.
