Most people rarely think about “blood flow” or “circulation” …
Or what’s happening inside their veins and arteries because they think “well, my heart is pumping, I can see my veins… things must be working fine”.
But this isn’t always the case and that’s why heart and brain problems are linked to poor circulation and a leading cause of death.
Of course, we want to have healthy cholesterol, blood pressure and blood sugar levels within a normal range. However, all of these factors require healthy blood flow & circulation!
And I know this from personal experience because both of my parents had to deal with these issues for years. And thus, I needed to find natural and safe options for them.
This really is a very important topic because when you have poor blood flow and circulation, you’re in danger of suffering from numerous health problems related to the:
- Heart & Brain
- Extremities (hands, feet and sexual organs/performance)
- Skin & Hair
All of this is because your blood carries oxygen and nutrients to every organ and cell in your body.
When there are restrictions, such as the narrowing of the arteries, plaque build-up, thick blood, and so forth… Your body is not functioning optimally and nutrients aren’t being delivered to your cells and organs.
Genetics aside, the typical causes of unhealthy and poor blood flow and circulation7 are:
- Unhealthy sugar levels
- Poor diet
- Very little or improper exercise
- Poor Stress Management
- Lack of key nutrients, vitamins and minerals
The good news is that all of these causes CAN be improved and under YOUR control. And that’s what I’m going to quickly discuss next…
All Natural Solutions
So there are a few specific and natural ways you can promote healthy blood flow and circulation...
I think by now everyone knows how bad smoking is, especially for circulation. So, I'm not going to get into the details. If you smoke, make a decision and commit to STOPPING once and for all!
Exercising daily is vital. Cardiovascular “aerobic” exercise is very important – jogging, running, swimming, and biking are all great.
Of course, daily brisk walking can be done by anyone, so you have no excuse not to get outside and take a 20-30 min walk daily or at least 3x weekly.
But most people don’t know or realize that “anaerobic” muscle-building exercise, is just as important and maybe even MORE important than aerobic.
The more muscle you have, the better your blood flow, the bigger your arteries, the more flexible your blood vessels… Which all translates into greatly improve circulation from head to toe.
And you don’t need much. Just 20-30 minutes, 2-3x weekly using cables or dumbbells at home is great. Even your own body weight is a fantastic start.
As the saying goes, "you are what you eat".
So the first thing to do is to reduce or eliminate animal protein and animal fat. You should also reduce your sugar intake because high insulin levels corrode your arteries and blood vessels.
You should focus on eating more natural whole grains, sweet potatoes, fruits, vegetables, legumes, fish and nuts.
And don’t forget the water… drink lots and lots of purified water to increase your blood flow and volume.
You should also eliminate or reduce all caffeine beverages because caffeine constricts your blood vessels and also increases the stress hormone, cortisol.
Speaking of the stress hormone, Cortisol … Even though we can’t stop or eliminate stress, you can certainly learn to manage how you REACT to stress, which is very important.
This is because when you’re under heavy emotional stress, your adrenal glands secret lots of different hormones, which end up causing constriction of the blood vessels, arteries and so forth … causing anxiety and panic attacks.
And if you’re not in the best of shape, this can easily lead to heart and brain problems
Stress management is a huge topic by itself and something I’ll get into deeper in the future.
But my suggestion is something I learned a few decades ago and that’s the next time you get stressed out … stop, pause, and count backward from 10.
I know it’s utterly simple… but it REALLY works because it prevents you from OVER REACTING … It calms you down and puts you back in control.
All Natural Supplements
- Herbs, Amino Acids, Vitamins & Minerals
Nature always has the answers and because of this you rarely need prescription drugs … certainly NOT for long-term health solutions.
When trying to find natural options for my parents, I did a LOT of research and tested numerous supplements before I finally discovered some of the best ingredients and combinations and that’s what I’m going to share with you today.
Vitamins & Minerals
Vitamin C, D3, K2-7 and E are the most important vitamins.
Calcium and especially a magnesium blend (Magnesium Glycinate Chelate, Magnesium Citrate, Magnesium Aspartate, Magnesium Oxide) are the most important minerals.
Next are amino acids. The best ones are different forms of L-Carnitine. The 3 most effective ones being:
- Acetyl L-Carnitine
- L-Carnitine Fumarate
- Glycine Propinyl L-Carnitine (GPLC)
Finally, we have a few very powerful herbal extracts, the best ones being:
- Grape Seed Extract
- Pine Bark Extract Pycno.genol®
