Poor Circulation Is Something You Can’t Ignore
Blood circulation is one of the most vital functions in the body. It is responsible for the transport of nutrients, oxygen, and hormones to cells throughout the body and for the removal of metabolic waste. Adequate circulation helps to enhance:
Blood Flow to the extremities
Brain Function and Mental Performance
The Immune System and Metabolism
When blood flow is restricted, it can cause a host of problems.
Common Symptoms of Poor Circulation
If you have poor circulation, blood flow is compromised - your organs (including the heart and the brain) aren’t receiving all the nutrients they need to function properly. Poor circulation may be a sign of a more serious condition and can potentially be life threatening.
Numbness, Loss of Sensation, Tingling in Hands or Feet
Insufficient blood flow to the extremities may result in a sensation of pins and needles, numbness or tingling.
Coldness in Hands or Feet
If blood cannot flow at healthy rates, temperature fluctuations may occur in the skin and nerve endings of the hands and feet. People with poor circulation may feel cold more often.
Fatigue or Low Energy
Poor circulation may affect energy levels and can cause fatigue, as the heart must pump harder when circulation is poor.
Swelling in the Feet, Legs or Fingers
Inadequate blood circulation can cause fluid to accumulate in the legs, ankles and feet. Symptoms of edema include:
heaviness and swelling
tight, warm skin
pain in affected areas
Leg or Foot Ulcers, Wounds That Aren’t Healing
Poor circulation affects the body's ability to heal, which can lead to ulcers in the legs and feet. Ulcers can also develop when blood pools in the veins of the legs, which causes swelling beneath the skin.
Joint Pain and Muscle Cramps
Restricted blood flow can cause pain in the legs, feet, arms, and hands. When the blood does not circulate properly, oxygen and nutrients cannot reach tissues effectively, and stiffness and cramping may result.
With adequate blood flow, tissues are better nourished, wounds heal faster, nerves are healthier, muscles are stronger, and overall energy level is higher.
