    Protect your arteries by cutting meat, dairy fats, and foods containing trans fats out of your diet

  • Get to know tocotrienols

    Take 200 mg a day of these potent antioxidants to slow down the build-up of plaque in your arteries

  • Take extra garlic

    900 mg a day of standardized garlic powder can help slow down the process of hardening of the arteries
