Circulation itself is never good, but it means your arteries are clogged. A blocked artery can kill you. That is why it is important to know the symptoms in order to notice them in time.
In almost all cases, poor circulation means that your health is deteriorating and you need to see a doctor. It can be anything from low blood pressure to heart disease or diabetes.
What other factors can cause poor circulation?
Too much sitting (see the video below for exercises to improve blood circulation)
Eating a lot of fast food
Obesity (just imagine)
Why is good circulation important?
All the organs in your body depend on your free-flowing blood to get the vital nutrients they need to function. Even if we slow down this process, it can damage vital organs like the brain and heart.
Consider, for example, traffic on the 405 Freeway in Los Angeles.
In this case, the performance is zero; No one will do anything (let’s say no iPhone) to get the goods to the places they need them. We need traffic flow to keep the city and surrounding areas ‘survival’.

Numbness in the legs

Consider adding ginger (add it to smoothies) and garlic to your diet. Nuts such as almonds, Brazil nuts and sunflower seeds and vitamin E are good for circulation.
Plus, you can’t go wrong with more antioxidants, vitamins C, D, E, beta-carotene, and selenium. That means going to local farmers markets and stocking up on organic fruits and vegetables.
