If you find out that you have arterial obstruction, it’s essential to try to improve your lifestyle immediately and heed his doctor’s recommendations. Otherwise, you won’t be able to clear your arteries naturally.

Blocked arteries can unleash serious consequences for cardiovascular health. If not detected, little by little this produces circulatory and cardiac affects that reduce the quality of life.

Eating healthy, exercising and maintaining other good lifestyle habits is essential during treatment (and for the rest of your life), and also maintaining adequate hydration.

Hydration is vital to cardiovascular health

According to experts from the Spanish Heart Foundation, it’s essential to hydrate adequately on a daily basis. Not only when doing physical activity, but regularly throughout the day. They add that:

“With dehydration of 2% in our organism, physical performance is reduced by 20%, while if dehydration reaches 5%, an athlete can experience a reduction in performance of 50%”.

Nutrition and diet experts such as Julio Basulto point out that it’s advisable to drink according to thirst even in summer. He says we shouldn’t force ourselves to drink two liters of water a day, as was commonly believed until recently.

It’s well known that water is vital to human health. It helps the body to perform all its functions correctly, provides energy, regulates body temperature, eliminates retained fluids in the body, and relieves inflammation, among other things.

Although it’s important to prioritize water consumption, it’s also possible to obtain it through the consumption of foods such as fruits, for example.

And how do you know if you are drinking enough water? A very simple indicator is your urine: if it is light in color, you’re well hydrated. If it’s dark, you probably need to hydrate better.

Unlike water and natural homemade drinks, commercial “hydration” drinks are not a good alternative for everyday use, as they contain sugars, sodium and other additives that have no health benefits. In fact, the ideal would be not to drink them at all or, if there’s no alternative, to consume them moderately and not too often.

That said, here are some  natural drinks that can help you stay well hydrated and take care of your cardiovascular health, in addition to cleaning your arteries naturally.
