Clogged arteries occur when plaque builds up on the inner walls of the passages. This blockage can restrict the blood flow and lead to serious health issues such as heart attack or stroke. Luckily, home remedies for clogged arteries can ease symptoms and might even help prevent dangerous repercussions by preventing buildup in the first place.


1. Dark Chocolate

Dark chocolate is a sweet treat high in fiber, magnesium, and iron. These three vitamins are helpful in reducing the amount of plaque buildup in the arteries. If you eat dark chocolate as a remedy for clogged arteries, be sure to stay away from processed options, because they contain high amounts of sugar. If you find this snack too bitter to eat alone, you can also bake with it. Keep in mind chocolate is high in trans fats -- enjoy in moderation!
