Heart disease has become quite a problem in the US today. Hypertension stretches blood vessels and artery walls. Unfortunately, it increases cholesterol levels as well.
High cholesterol is a major contributor to the occurrence of heart disease, because fats from the food you eat tends to accumulate in the lining of the blood vessels.
Over time, these fatty globules form a deposit, called an atheroma. A layer of cholesterol forms on top of the globules, and the deposit causes inflammation in the blood vessel wall.
The plaque that restricts the heart artery is a ticking time bomb because of the threat of sudden rupture.
If there is a rupture due to the buildup of plaque which constricts the arteries of the heart the body will try to rectify this rupture by creating a blood clot which in itself can lead to fatal consequences as thus blood clot can constrict the arteries in their entirety.
When you consume a diet that is low on fat and high in fiber you will go a long way in lowering the bad cholesterol (LDL) in your body.
You can consume raisins which are rich in antioxidants and fiber as well as being low on fat. They will help to inhibit the buildup of bad cholesterol in your blood vessels and significantly reduce your risk of a heart disease.
