Ready to improve your blood flow and feel better?

Good circulation is vital for optimal health. Blood circulation allows oxygen and other vital nutrients to be carried to all areas and organs of the body. It keeps your heart healthy, your brain focused, and even wounds heal faster.

Circulation helps your immune system operate at full capacity, fighting off things like colds, flus, and even COVID.

Poor circulation can be caused by genetics, smoking, tight fitting clothing, venous disease, and diabetes.

Symptoms of poor circulation:

  • Inability to concentrate
  • Lack of energy
  • Cold feet and hands
  • Erectile dysfunction
  • Thinning hair or balding

Tips to increase circulation in the body:

  • Quit smoking
  • If you are anemic, take iron as a supplement
  • Decrease stress as much as you can
  • Make sure you include foods with Omega-3 fatty acids or supplement
  • Dry brush your body daily
  • Wear compression socks and elevate your feet in the evenings
  • Eat spicy foods
  • Cinnamon is great to add to food to help increase circulation

Interesting facts about your circulatory system that you might not know:

  • The circulatory system in the human body stretches 66,000 miles, that is more than two and a half times the circumference of the entire Earth.
  • The heart beats 2.5 billion times during the life of a 75-year-old.
  • The heart expels 2 ounces of blood with each beat, five quarts of blood each minute, 220 million quarts in 70 years.

Poor circulation can lead to bigger more dangerous issues down the road if not addressed medically. If you believe you are experiencing a lack of blood flow, please contact your doctor for an appointment.
