SIMI (detailed reference listed at the bottom*):

Good health depends on a lot of different factors, and proper blood circulation is one of its main ones. The blood in our bodies is the responsible fluid to take nutrients and oxygen from one spot to another. Helping our body functioning correctly and being balanced. Whenever our blood circulation fails to deliver the proper nutrients to the specific parts of our body, that leads to a diverse range of health issues.

If these issues are left untreated, poor blood circulation can cause severe damage to our heart, brain, liver, limbs, and kidneys. There are many reasons why you may suffer from poor blood circulation. One of the most common ones is atherosclerosis. Which is also known as the hardening of the arteries. As well as peripheral artery disease (also known as PAD).

However, poor blood circulation can also be a result of a variety of health problems. Such as heart diseases, diabetes, blood clots or obesity. An excess of drinking, smoking, and also things like eating disorders or pregnancy can make you extremely vulnerable to these conditions.

If you are aware of the symptoms that show up when your blood circulation isn’t appropriate, you will be able to control the reason behind it and find a timely treatment. Poor blood circulation can also lead to heart attacks, strokes, or even death. So make sure to check up with your doctor if you experience any of the symptoms listed below in this article. Keeping a healthy blood circulation is key to staying healthy and leading a good lifestyle!
