4 Ways To Boost Your Circulation

So many of us spend a lot of time sitting, which we know can have an impact on our health. But you may not realise that a sedentary lifestyle can also affect your circulation. 

Your circulatory system sends oxygen, blood and nutrients throughout your body. Good circulation helps to nourish your body’s cells and organs. It also helps to remove toxins and lactic acid, so it is very important! 

These are a few easy ways you can give your circulation a boost!

1. Get active!

When you exercise, you are strengthening your cardiovascular system. This means your heart is able to pump blood throughout your body more effectively. If you spend a lot of time sitting, try to get up and move every hour. Each time you raise your heart rate, you are helping to boost your circulation!

2. Eat iron-rich foods

Did you know iron is essential for blood production? It helps to carry oxygen through your body and can increase your circulation as well. 

Low iron levels may lead to a deficiency, which can cause poor circulation, so make sure you’re eating foods that are rich in iron!

3. Add ginger to your meals

Did you know that ginger can aid your circulatory system? That’s thanks to the zinc, magnesium and chromium that ginger contains, which help to improve blood flow. Ginger is also a natural anti-inflammatory, reducing the release of prostaglandins — a hormone created in response to damaged tissue.  

4. Drink some tea

Green and black tea both have antioxidants, particularly flavonoids and polyphenols. Antioxidants can help to promote healthy blood flow and improve your circulation, which means a healthier flow of blood to your heart.  

Hopefully these tips will help encourage you to give your circulation a helping hand.
