How to Fix Coronary Artery Disease

What Do I Do If I Have Calcium in My Arteries

The following is a list of compounds that one can take to help if they’ve taken a CCA test and scored an unfavorable number. Don’t take this as medical advice, but more so as a roadmap. As always, consult with your physician.

  • The first natural compound is allicin, which is the phytonutrient in garlic. Some interesting research has been done on the association of allicin and decreased artery calcification in animals, so if you have a pet with a calcified coronary artery, start feeding them garlic immediately.
  • Butyrate is a compound that your gut microbes produce when you feed them fiber. Vegetable fiber is a type of fat and feeding your gut microbes this type of fat is associated with a decreased risk of artery disease.
  • Lycopene is a phytonutrient found in tomatoes and other vegetables. Some studies have shown that lycopene can decrease the thickness of the wall of your arteries and also decrease stiffness.

If you’re looking to up your lycopene intake, olive oil is a great way to do it. Lycopene, like other phytonutrients, is fat-soluble, so adding more oil to your diet can help your body absorb it more effectively.

  • There are several benefits to taking omega-3 fatty acids, including reducing inflammation and reducing the risk of clotting. I believe that cod liver oil is the best option when it comes to fish oils.

NOTE: Some examples of omega-6 fatty acids are soy oil, corn oil, canola, and cotton seed. These fatty acids can increase stiffness of the arteries and the clotting factor.

  • There is one type of omega-6 that is very friendly to your arteries, and it doesn’t increase inflammation. This is called GLA or gamma linolenic acid (GLA). This is found in borage oil, black currant seed oil, evening primrose oil. So GLA can help decrease inflammation, thickness in your arteries, and plaque formation.
  • K2, you probably knew this was coming. I would recommend getting the mk-7 version and consuming about 300 micrograms every single day. Now, what does vitamin k2 do? It activates a certain protein that inhibits calcium from forming in the arteries. So, that’s a very, very important one.
  • Tocotrienols are a form of the vitamin E complex, and they’re about 50 times stronger than tocopherols. They can decrease inflammation in your arteries by decreasing c-reactive protein, which is an inflammatory compound.
