It is important for your heart to be able to pump blood to all parts of your body without resistance. Saturated fats and other substances can build up in your arteries, causing strain on your heart. To improve blood circulation, you can use anticoagulant medications or natural remedies to prevent blood clotting.
Saturated Fats and Cholesterol
Avoid foods with high levels of bad cholesterol and saturated fats. Bad cholesterol is known as LDL, (low-density lipoprotein cholesterol) and can build up in your arteries, causing them to harden. If an artery becomes fully blocked it can result in a heart attack or stroke. Foods which cause high cholesterol include bad fats (saturated fat, margarines, etc.), sugar, sugary food, refined carbohydrates like bread, pasta, rice, etc. It is very important that you get enough quality fats, like olive oil over your salads and omega 3 to decrease bad cholesterol and help to increase blood circulation.
Exercise is important in staying healthy and maintaining good blood circulation. The American College of Sports Medicine recommends every adult get at least 30 minutes of moderate intensity physical activity, preferably every day. Exercise benefits the prevention of cardiovascular disease because it reduces cholesterol, body weight and blood pressure and increases insulin sensitivity.
Increase your intake of dietary fiber. Some cereals are specifically made with high amounts of healthy fiber. A study by the Department of Social and Environmental Medicine at the University of Osaka found that dietary intakes of fiber both insoluble and soluble, especially fruit and cereal fibers (rolled oats), may reduce the risk of mortality from cardiac disease.
There are several natural remedies that can be used to help improve blood flow. The University of Maryland Medical Center notes that capsaicin, the active ingredient in cayenne pepper, is being tested for its effect on blood circulation. Take a quarter teaspoon of cayenne powder daily with water or sprinkled on your food. According to the Mayo Clinic other alternative medicines for cardiovascular disease include oats and foods high in omega 3 fatty acids.
