What is circulation?

Circulation is when our heart pumps blood to circulate around our body. When our blood flows, it keeps our vital organs working and healthy, as well as delivering oxygen and important nutrients.

Poor blood flow can lead to fatigue, digestive problems, chest pain and swollen abdomen legs, ankles or feet. 

If you would like to start improving your body circulation, you should start taking these important steps, such as following a healthier diet, cut back on excess body fat, quit smoking and drinking alcohol.

Another way is to add supplements to your lifestyle, and it's not too late to start now.

B Vitamins

Vitamin B2 or riboflavin has been shown to lower blood pressure in around 10 per cent of people, according to new study research published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition that links a common genetic factor with the vitamin.

Magnesium

Magnesium increases the production of nitric oxide, a molecule that helps relax blood vessels.

However, magnesium supplements should be avoided in patients with severe renal insufficiency.

Potassium

Potassium is known to promote sodium excretion and helps your blood vessels to relax.

CoQ10

A recently published systematic review showed that supplementing your diet with CoQ10, in addition to standard therapy in patients with moderate-to-severe heart failure, is associated with symptom reduction of major cardiovascular disease.

Fish oil

Fish oil supplements contain Omega-3 fats EPA and DH which are good for your health.
