Ancient Herb REVERSES Heart Disease

Dear Living Well Daily Reader,

Ah, garlic… one of nature’s tastiest gifts.

But as it turns out, garlic is more than key to delicious salad dressings or spaghetti sauces.

It’s also been revered as a powerful medicinal plant for thousands of years by many great ancient civilizations.

And it looks like they were on to something…

According to modern research from UCLA, there’s a specific type of garlic you should be getting more of if you want to keep a healthy heart well into your golden years.

You see, this simple plant can help blast dangerous plaques from your arteries, helping to keep them clean as a whistle.

Even better, it’s been scientifically shown to reverse heart disease!

This special type of garlic is aged garlic extract, and it’s chock-full of antioxidants that fight inflammation and free radicals.

In a recent study published in The Journal of Nutrition, scientists analyzed a group of participants aged 40–75 who were already suffering from metabolic syndrome — a condition caused by high cholesterol, high blood pressure, high blood sugar and obesity.

The group was then split into two groups. Some took 2,400 mg of aged garlic extract daily, and some took a placebo.

Before and after the trial, all the participants underwent tests to measure the amount of soft and hard plaque in their arteries.

Hard plaque is the calcified type of plaque that clogs up your arteries, making them stiff and leading to heart disease.

Soft plaque, though not yet hardened, is just as dangerous because it stores in the arteries and eventually becomes hard plaque.

So blasting soft plaque before it can harden is vital for a healthy heart.

And as it turns out, aged garlic extract can do just that…

The folks taking it saw a whopping 80 percent reduction in soft plaque accumulation. It’s like the garlic was literally cleaning out their arteries!

This means by simply taking the miracle herb, you can help keep your arteries from stiffening and even reverse the early stages of heart disease.

And you can do it all without taking risky statins or undergoing dangerous surgery.

You can get aged garlic extract at natural health stores and through online retailers like amazon.com.

Live well,
