Help for Blood Circulation and High Blood Pressure
There are several factors that can cause problems with your blood circulation and high blood pressure seems to be one of them.
Suffering from poor leg circulation is not just a plague of the elderly. Middle aged and young alike also suffer from this problem.
Poor leg circulation can cause blockages in your veins that can lead to a stroke or heart attack, so it`s not something you can take lightly, but saying that, taking practical steps can significantly reduce that risk, and they are not hard to implement.
Symptoms of Poor Circulation
Poor circulation and high blood pressure can both lead to horrible symptoms. If you are trying your best to walk a little for exercise, and to help your condition, pain in the calf muscles can cause you much stress and discouragement. The most obvious symptoms are:
- Pain in the legs
- Numbness in limbs
- Water Retention
- Coldness in limbs
- Leg Skin Discoloration
Causes of Poor Circulation
Circulation and high blood pressure have several factors linking them. The most common are:
- Deep Vein Thrombosis
- Varicose Veins
Atherosclerosis, which is a narrowing of the arteries, can be caused by high blood pressure, and vise-versa, atherosclerosis can cause high blood pressure. Either way they both are high risk factors for poor circulation.
This condition of restricted blood flow brings with it complications due to a lack of oxygenated blood. Tissues and muscle are starved of oxygen to revitalize them.
Now consider the blood flow in the venous vessels which lead back to the heart. Poor circulation causes the blood to pool in the legs where blood clots can form. This happens due to failing valves in the veins, and the blood not being pushed back to the heart efficiently.
Varicose veins also cause circulatory problems, and they develop through habitual standing for long periods, and age related problems, such as reduced elasticity of blood vessels.
Poor blood circulation is also a by-product of diabetes where small blood vessels become damaged over a long period of time. The disease also causes fluid retention, numbness and swelling, a trigger for poor blood circulation and high blood pressure.
Now most of us don`t like to hear that we need to do more exercise and in particular, walking. Some of us lead very sedentary lives and sit in the same position for hours.
Now, if you`re cringing at the thought of daily walks when the weather is cold, wet and windy, well I don`t blame you!
Relax! You have alternative choices on days like that which will bring beneficial results. And besides, not everyone finds walking easy.
What to do about Poor Blood Circulation?
The alternative solutions to helping poor circulation and high blood pressure are relatively common and they involve exercise, good diet and supplements. But other ways that can boost those efforts, are well worth knowing about.
Watching our diets can be tricky if we are unable to plan and shop for healthy meals, or used to eating lots of fruit and vegetables. Even the reliance on prescription drugs doesn`t merit the trust that we once had in them. And as we have mentioned, walking is not always easy to do or keep up with, depending on the weather or how physically mobile we are.
So what can we do to ensure good results?
Supplementing our diets with minerals, vitamins and herbs will always do us good if we know how to use them. There are herbs that can help strengthen blood vessel walls and open up arteries. Vitamins and minerals that give our liver, heart and kidneys the nutritional support they need to help manage circulation and high blood pressure because they cleanse us of pollutants and wastes.
The Manna Blood Circulation Support contains natural plant based ingredients to reduce accumulated fat deposits on the inside walls of the arteries and also enhance blood flow.
