Maintaining proper blood circulation is vital for your overall health, as healthy blood flow helps transport nutrients and oxygen to your organs while removing waste from the body. Strong circulation also aids in repairing wounds, improves immunity and reduces the risk of infection. While the state of your circulation and health of your arteries are indicative of your cardiovascular health and blood pressure, they are often overlooked, so it is wise to incorporate certain foods and dietary supplements in your diet to help support proper blood flow and promote cardiovascular health.
Fish such as salmon contain high amounts of Omega-3 fatty acids, which doctors agree increase good HDL levels and support healthy arteries, as well as promote normal responses to inflammation in the body — an important factor in healthy circulation.
A variety of herbs and extracts are shown to help relieve mild occasional stagnation, or blood that is not flowing properly. Experiencing cold hands and feet, or pains in your legs or chest can be serious signs of a problem. Recent research shows that certain natural compounds such as basil, saffron, and garlic can effectively support healthy circulation by promoting clear and healthy arterial walls.
Citrus fruits, kiwis, strawberries, and cantaloupes are all high in Vitamin C, which is a natural blood thinner. Citrus fruits also contain bioflavonoids which can help strengthen your capillaries. Watermelon and cooked tomatoes are rich in lycopene, which discourages the buildup of plaque in the arteries. Blackberries are also known to promote new blood cell formation and purify the blood.
Nuts and Seeds
Certain nuts and seeds, such as walnuts and almonds, promote cardiovascular health. Pumpkin seeds in particular are high in Vitamin E, which may reduce the stickiness of blood and therefore lower the risk of blood clot formation. Walnuts and almonds contain omega fatty acids that support heart health.
Mix and Balance Your Diet
Variety and moderation are important aspects when maintaining a healthy diet. Remember to eat a balanced diet rich in natural, whole foods instead of processed and refined products. Fresh fruits and vegetables contain the most antioxidants, which work to remove free radicals in the body and protect blood vessels, as well as promote overall health and vitality.
Since the cardiovascular network is a complex set of systems influencing all areas of the body, a strategy that embraces the concept of balance and total-body wellness (that is, not just treating single symptoms individually) is going to be your most effective solution. Diet and supplementation are two profoundly effective, safe, and inexpensive ways to proactively support your cardiovascular health.
Advanced Circulatory Support
Modern scientific research has determined the most effective natural compounds for promoting circulatory health. EcoNugenics creates formulas based on time-tested knowledge and current medical research to provide the most effective and integrative natural health products available today.
For superior circulatory support, Circutol® combines traditional herbs, such as Hawthorne berry and Chinese Salvia, with more current discoveries, such as the enzyme Nattokinase. Nattokinase supports circulation and regulates healthy blood clotting and blood pressure.
Composed of two natural heart-protective botanicals, Circutol® promotes healthy circulation, healthy arteries, healthy blood pressure, and healthy cholesterol levels. The formula also includes Cordyceps and Ganoderma, two medicinal mushrooms shown regulate the production of nitric oxide (a key factor in maintaining healthy blood pressure). The addition of L-Carnitine, a naturally occurring amino acid prized for its antioxidant and heart-health properties, completes the formula. *
