Your circulatory system includes your blood vessels and arteries that transport blood and oxygen to your organs. It also removes toxic substances and other waste products out of your body. There have not been any research studies to definitively conclude that particular foods increase circulation, however, some foods may reinforce good blood flow if consumed regularly.
Fruits contain essential nutrients and enzymes that help improve blood circulation. They also contain antioxidants to prevent free radical damage in your circulatory system. Blueberries, blackberries, oranges and goji berries are contain some of the most antioxidants of all fruits. Watermelon is particularly beneficial because it contains lycopene, that helps eliminate arterial plaque and increases blood flow.
Foods that contain the antioxidant vitamin E, can prevent the occurance of blood clots, aid in the formation of red blood cells and fight free radical damage. This powerful antioxidant also fights off many cancers and prevents heart disease. Almonds, sunflower seeds, peanut butter, hazelnuts, olives and organ meats contain plenty of vitamin E.
Vegetables and vegetable based juices offer plenty of essential vitamins, minerals and antioxidants that improve blood flow in many ways. They lower LDL, also known as “bad” cholesterol, and strengthen blood vessels and capillaries. Carrots, spinach, broccoli, cauliflower and onions are some of the healthiest, most nutrient rich vegetables to improve circulation.
