Feeling numb in certain parts of the body especially the extremities.
(extremities: the end part of a limb, as a hand or foot)
Did You Know?
Bad circulation is infamous for being a ‘silent killer’, and is known to affect more than 10 million people across the globe.
Bad circulation predominantly targets the middle-aged and elderly folks, especially those with medical conditions like hypertension, diabetes, atherosclerosis, etc. This condition of bad circulation is known to cause serious damage to the legs, heart, brain, etc. So what exactly is bad circulation? Why is it referred to as a silent killer and what are the different symptoms of bad circulation?
We all know that blood flows throughout our bodies via a network of arteries and veins. We also know that the heart works as a pumping organ, responsible for pumping blood into our arteries. However, we barely give much thought to the way blood is circulated in the body, until we hit upon a health problem. Bad circulation is nothing but restriction of blood flow to certain areas of the body. Blood is not allowed to flow in the manner it is supposed to in the body, and the different organs fail to receive adequate amounts of oxygen and nutrients, resulting in various health problems.
Numbness in the extremities
Numbness is usually felt after standing or sitting for a long time. Poor circulation can cause the muscles of the extremities to fall asleep. Numbness and tingling sensation may also be an indicator of fat deposits blocking the flow of blood in the arteries. The thickened walls prevent blood from flowing to the extremities, which is what causes the numbness. This is dangerous because it can be an early symptom of heart disease.
Increase Blood Circulation with the Manna Blood Circulation Support supplement, which helps to promote flexibility of the arteries as well as increasing blood flow.
