Great Ways to Improve your Blood Circulation

Apr 25, 2008
Heart problems and diabetes are just two conditions which come with problems in circulation. These dangerous and debilitating conditions are so prevalent, that if you don't have either, it's a sure bet you know someone who does. Every one of us would do well to improve blood circulation on an ongoing basis, as a preventative measure. If your health requires that you improve blood circulation, you'll also want to take a look at these simple steps to better circulation.

Something that is very important for better circulation is exercise. I can be hard to get into the routine of regular exercise, and I am sure this isn't the first time that you have heard this. But ask yourself this. Do you do it?

You've got to choose an activity that's doable, given your current health, and also enjoyable to you on a regular basis. For example, aerobics are in line with a heart or diabetes patient's limitations. If you like walking, set aside regular days and times for this activity. Regular exercise not only improves circulation, but also helps lower blood pressure.

There are many herbs available that can have a significant effect on you blood circulation. These include hawthorne berries, rosmary (to stabilize blood pressure, cayenne pepper (tones blood vessels) and Garlic (lowers colesterol). I recommend checking with your GP on what is suitable for you.

You can do much with your diet to indirectly improve blood circulation as a result of improving other body functions.

Something else that is very important to improving blood circulation is vitamin E. This nutrient has been proven to be deficient in both diabetes and heart patients. Vitamin E lowers you body's need for oxygen and help your body produce more blood vessels. You can get Vitamin E from many sources such as vegetable oils and nuts. Vitamin E also protects you from losing vitamins A, D and K.

Three of the B vitamins, cholin, inositol and vitamin B6 are instrumental in regulating blood cholesterol. Deficiencies of these vitamins are correlated with an increase in blood cholesterol levels and atherosclerosis. Sufficient amounts of these important vitamins are necessary for improved circulation and healthy vessels.

A study was done in the 50's that proves that diet with a good balance of these vitamins reduced likelyhood of heart attacks and diabetes, and for those who had the illinesses significantly reduce the medication required to control them. Patients also reported having more energy.

It is possible to improve blood circulation very simply by improving your diet and adding exercise to you routine. Speak to you GP for further advice.
