如何改善您的血液循環

Why you need good blood flow

Unbelievable, but your body has approximately 60,000 miles of blood vessels. Together with your heart and other muscles, they form your circulatory system. This road network transports blood to every corner of your body. But when your blood circulation is poor, it can slow down or block blood flow. This means that the cells in your body cannot get all the oxygen and nutrients they need.

Signs of poor circulation

When your limbs cannot get enough blood, your hands or feet may feel cold or numb. If you are light-skinned, your legs may appear blue. Poor blood circulation can also cause dry skin, brittle nails, and hair loss, especially on feet and legs. Some men may have difficulty getting or maintaining an erection. If you have diabetes, your scrapes, sores or wounds tend to heal more slowly.

Extinguish tobacco

Nicotine is the active ingredient in cigarettes, electronic cigarettes and smokeless tobacco. It can damage the walls of your arteries and make your blood so thick that it cannot pass through. If you smoke, please quit smoking. It may be difficult to stick to it, but your pharmacy or doctor's office can help.

Control blood pressure

If it is too high, it can cause arteriosclerosis, which can harden your arteries and help stop blood flow. The goal is 120 over 80 or less, but please consult your doctor for the best number for your age and health. Check your reading at least once a month. You can buy a home sphygmomanometer or use a kiosk in a pharmacy.

Drink more water

Blood is about half of water. So you need to stay hydrated to stay active. The goal is to drink 8 glasses of water a day. If you exercise or it is hot outside, you will need to drink plenty of water.

Stand at your desk

Sitting for several hours at a time is bad for your blood circulation or back. It weakens the leg muscles and slows down blood flow in the legs, which may cause blood clots. If you are a desk jockey at work, consider using a standing desk. It may take a while to get used to, but standing up can exercise the valves in the veins of the legs to pump blood to the heart.

Relax and twist

Yoga is a low-impact exercise that can quickly start your blood flow. When you move, it brings oxygen to your cells. When you twist, it will pump blood to your organs. The inverted position transfers blood from the lower part of the body to the heart and brain.

Hit the wall (in a good way)

Not a yogi? When your ankles or feet are swollen, try the leg-to-wall yoga pose. Also known as viparita karani , this is a simple method of pumping blood in the other direction. Lie on the floor or yoga mat with your left or right shoulder close to the wall. Turn your body so that you can lift your feet up and put your butt against the wall. Reach your arms to the floor, palms down to maintain balance.

Smoke it

Aerobic exercise means "with oxygen". Therefore, when you are running, biking, walking, swimming, and doing similar exercises, you will take in more oxygen and transfer it to your muscles. This will pump your blood, make your heart stronger, and lower your blood pressure. Set a goal to exercise 5 to 7 days a week for 30 minutes each time. If necessary, divide it into smaller pieces. If you walk, know that moderate to vigorous speeds—at least 3 miles per hour—provide the best health benefits.

Squat down

This form of strength training not only allows your blood to circulate, it can also help lower blood sugar and relieve back pain. Start with your feet shoulder-width apart and your arms at your sides. Now slowly bend your hips and knees, but keep your back straight, as if you were sitting on a chair. When you return to the starting position, bend your arms to maintain balance.

Compress your socks

Get your wardrobe to work. Compression stockings will squeeze your legs so that your blood will not stay for too long. On the contrary, it will return to your heart. Ask your doctor which length and pressure are best for you.

Eat more plants and less meat

Let's face it: there is no harm in eating a balanced diet. eat more fruits and vegetables. Stay away from saturated fats that can be found in red meat, chicken, cheese, and other animal sources. Avoid excessive salt. This will help keep your weight within a healthy range and control your cholesterol and blood pressure-and your arteries are unblocked.

Brush your body, not just your hair

Sweep your blood in the right direction. Take a hard, flat bristles and brush it on the dry skin. Start with your feet, slowly move upwards, and do long movements on your legs and arms. Make circles on your abdomen and lower back. Dry brushing can also remove dry skin. Do this every day before taking a shower.

Sip or soak

This is a temporary solution, but taking a bath is a good way to start blood circulation. Warm water widens your arteries and veins, allowing more blood to pass through. Hot water or tea is also fine.
