Lemons are rich in vitamin C which aid in slowing down the progression of atherosclerosis, that is, hardening of the arteries. They also help in preventing damage to LDL (“bad”) cholesterol, which then develops as plaque in the arteries.
Ginger is consisted of powerful anti-inflammatory compounds known as gingerols. These compounds lower the inflammation, thus improving the circulation.
Garlic contains a potent agent called allicin which reacts with red blood cells and produces hydrogen sulphide which on the other hand relaxes the blood vessels, and keeps blood flowing easily. This results in reduced blood pressure, allowing the blood to carry more oxygen to the vital organs, and decreasing pressure on the heart.
