I’ve been reading broadly recently and found this easy quick test that everybody can try to know the condition of your blood vessels roughly. I’d share it with everyone.
First turn on a timer. We’ll need to count in seconds.
Make a fist as firmly as possible for 30 seconds, then open your palm and observe. The blood vessels of the palm are pressed, so as to block the circulation of the blood. When you open the palm it looks pale. Then start to count seconds until your palm restores the original skin color. By this time you can roughly determine the health of your blood vessels.
If your palm recovers in 10 seconds, congratulations! Your vessels are functioning very well. If it takes more than 10 seconds to recover, you need to adjust yourself to a healthy lifestyle. And diet, is one of the key points.
Onion contains prostaglandin A, a substance that can relax blood vessels and dilute blood viscosity.
Onions help clean up blood vessels, regulate blood pressure, it’s good food for hypertensive people.
Diallyl, sulfur-containing amino acids, and other substances present in onions can enhance fibrinolytic activity and thus prevent arteriosclerosis.
Eggplant is rich of vitamin P, vitamin P is a flavonoid that softens blood vessels and increases blood vessel elasticity, yes eggplant is known as a vascular softener.
In addition, studies have shown that the saponin in eggplant can lower cholesterol, and for the elderly, eating eggplant is of great benefit.
Buckwheat is rich in lysine, lysine is good for health but it barely exists in other wheats.
The substance Rutin in buckwheat can strengthen blood vessels, improve the elasticity and suppress the rise of blood pressure.
Corn is rich in unsaturated fatty acids, especially linoleic acid which is up to 60%. Corn helps to promote the normal metabolism of body fat and cholesterol, reduce the deposition of cholesterol in blood vessels, soften arteries.
