Arteries are blood vessels that supply oxygen-rich blood to various parts of the body. The inner walls of an artery are smooth and blood is able to flow through them with any hindrances. However, many people in the world today developed clogged arteries.
When there is a continuous plaque (this can be fat deposits, calcifications or clots) build up on the inner walls of the arteries, with time there will be a blockage of blood flow. Clogged arteries increase the susceptibility of a person to heart attack, stroke, and death. It is important to know the signs of clogged arteries and how you can be able to know if something is wrong with you before it’s too late.
