Did you know that the better your blood flow is, the healthier your body and the younger you’ll look and feel?
This is because your blood contains oxygen, proteins, enzymes, youthful hormones and other nutrients that will help heal and repair your body.
Unfortunately, plaque buildup or “thicker blood,” decrease circulation and can increase your blood pressure, cholesterol levels, and of course, lead to a heart attack or stroke.
And the older we get, the worse your circulation becomes.
However, if you want to look and feel younger, improve your skin, hair, memory, muscle size, and even your performance in bed, you must improve your circulation.
And today I’m going to reveal the best fats that are clinically proven to help cleanse your arteries and improve blood flow.
Monounsaturated fats, more specifically extra virgin macadamia nut and olive oil, are great for your health. They improve blood flow and reduce the formation of varicose veins.
They also help improve cholesterol levels, while improving HDL/LDL ratios.
They contain powerful antioxidants and olive oil also contains polyphenols — all of this helps improve blood flow and arterial health.
They also help dilate the veins and arteries, which helps reduce blood pressure.
The one thing to remember is that you should NOT cook with olive oil, it shouldn’t be heated because it changes the structure of the fat. So, use it on top of salad or vegetables.
However, you can cook with macadamia nut oil because it has higher heat and smoke tolerance.
Personally, I don’t suggest you cook with either – raw is best.
But you can cook with the next fat and that’s:
One main benefit with extra virgin coconut oil is that you can cook with it because it’s saturated fat. But don’t worry, it’s not bad for your cholesterol. I’ll get to that in a minute.
Coconut oil is very beneficial for improving blood circulation. It has healthy fats and contains medium-chain triglycerides (MCT oil) that help relieve inflammation of the arteries. This, in turn, improves blood flow throughout the body.
Coconut oil has many additional health benefits – it improves your metabolism, it’s good for your brain and memory, boosts your immune system, reduces candida and yeast, good for gut health, and great for your skin and hair.
Now, some people are afraid to eat this fat because it’s primarily “saturated” fat, even though it has no cholesterol. The truth is that it increases your “good” HDL cholesterol.
And yes, it does increase the “bad” LDL, but it increases the SIZE of them which is a good thing. Smaller, LDL particles are the real problem. So, never look at just “LDL” levels because there are different sizes and forms.
Nuts have lots of health benefits, especially almonds and walnuts. They consist of healthy polyunsaturated and monounsaturated fats which help improve your cholesterol levels.
Almonds have magnesium, which helps relax your arteries.
Walnuts are high in omega 3 fats, which reduce inflammation and help thin the blood.
Nuts also have carnitine, which plays an important role in brain and heart function.
Do NOT roast your nuts because it changes the structure of the fat. Eat them raw.
Improving blood flow is extremely important for your health, fitness, and, longevity. You need to reduce or eliminate unhealthy “vegetable oils” such as canola or corn or the usual stuff on the supermarket shelves.
They are fake fats that have a very long shelf life and worst of all, high in inflammatory omega 6 fats.
Instead, have extra virgin macadamia nut, olive and coconut oils. And throw in some raw almonds and walnuts as well.
