The circulatory system of the body sends oxygenated blood and necessary nutrients to different parts of the body. Symptoms of poor blood circulation are seen if the circulatory system is disturbed.
The blood vessels get blocked due to fatty substances like cholesterol or plaque. This hardens the walls and normal blood flow of the body is restrained.
Poor blood circulation can happen due to many other reasons.
Poor blood circulation system has different impacts on the body and causes various health problems. Some of them are:
Hearing about poor blood circulation seems fine at first. But, has harsh effects on different parts of the body.
Effects on Brain
Poor brain blood circulation induce fatigue, depression, anxiety, poor brain function, adrenal fatigue, panic disorder, traumatic brain injury, unexplained severe headaches and more.
It also causes hypoxia in the brain; it means efficient amount of oxygen-rich blood is not reaching to the brain. The oxidative stress then can kill the brain cells and cause memory loss disease like Alzheimer.
Effects on Kidney
When the blood supply to the kidneys is inadequate due to narrowed arteries, it can give blood pressure and fluid imbalance in your entire body.
When the arteries constrict, it retains more salt and water inside the body. The high retention of salt and water can increase your blood pressure and cause a heart attack. It can also excite body swelling, especially in feet and hands.
Effects on Heart
The poor heart will disable you to perform activities like walking, climbing stairs, exercising while causing breathlessness, high blood pressure, cholesterol, chest pain etc.
The heart will have to work hard to push the blood in areas of blocked circulation. The vessels wall gets thinner and the heart becomes enlarged due to this over workload which can again result in a cardiac arrest.
Effects on Liver
Two main blood vessels provide liver with half of the oxygen supply. There is no trouble until blood is received normally in the liver but once any of the vessels get damaged, it can block the blood inside which congests and enlarges the liver.
This situation allows more clotting disorders finally becoming consequential to heart arrest. The symptoms of poor liver blood flow are lack of appetite, weight loss etc.
Effects on Legs
Since legs are far from the heart, feet stay deprived of effective blood flow.
Long sitting hours, physical inactivity, lack of nutrition-rich food, ageing, injuries etc. can lead to insufficient blood flow in the lower part of the body.
Poor blood circulation in legs can cause numbness in legs, feet cramps, swelling, tingling feet, clots, calf pain, leg weakness, feet pain, ankle pain and heel pain. These pain related to legs can cause immobility of the body. But, it does not stop here. It can influence the entire body and disturb the whole circulatory system.
If you want to improve blood circulation in the entire body then start activities that help blood circulate effortlessly.
These activities are walking, jogging, exercising and dancing. Eat less salt. Excess salt can put pressure on the veins. Drink lots of fluids like water, fresh juices, coconut water etc. Take a 2-3 minutes break between every 2 hours of work and take a small walk. The best and faster way to improve blood circulation is using Foot Pulse EXO that comes with powerful EXOpulse technology.
EXOpulse is based on EMS (Electrical muscle Stimulation). EMS helps the muscles to contract and expand. Continuous expansion and contraction can push the blood from leg to heart and this opens the blockages in the arteries and veins and helps the blood circulation work normally.
Let your feet spend just 30-minutes daily on Foot Pulse EXO and your body will say thank you.
