Circulation ProblemsCirculation refers to the movement of blood through our body's vessels, which is instigated by the pumping action of our hearts. These blood vessels, heart, and the blood itself are part of a system of organs known as the circulatory system.
What are signs of poor circulation?
Poor circulation can be categorised by varying symptoms. An individual with poor circulation may feel weak when they walk or have muscles in their bodies that constantly ache. A regular sensation of pins and needles upon the skin is another potential sign of poor circulation, as is numbness and cold fingers and toes.
Can circulation problems be cured?
This depends on the extent of the patient's symptoms, however there are vascular treatments available for serious cases of circulatory issues and much research that suggests basic regular exercise could reverse impaired blood flow in the leg arteries, even if it's just a 5 minute walk around your office every hour.
What is the best natural remedy for poor circulation?
Many lab studies have already concluded that antioxidant-rich ginkgo biloba is an effective natural remedy for improving circulation. It does this by opening up the blood vessels and making blood less adherent. Gingko can be found in the highly popular Lamberts Veintain supplement.
What vitamin is good for blood circulation?
Vitamin B3, also known as niacin is highly regarded for its ability to reduce inflammation and bad cholesterol but did you also know it can help to improve blood circulation too. If, however, you already have a compromised circulatory system (e.g. you've previously suffered from a stroke and/or heart issues) then you should not consider using a niacin supplement without consulting your GP first.
