About Supplements for Poor Circulation

The circulatory system is a complex network of biological pipes that ensures blood gets distributed to the cells of the body with the heart acting as a pump. The blood carries important nutrients that cells need to function, such as oxygen and essential amino acids. There are countless essential cellular functions, including repairing damaged tissue and fighting infections.

 

There are many little problems that can occur with the circulatory system, just as there are with a system of pipes that carries water around a home. House pipes can of course get blocked or damaged. In the case of the circulatory system, our network of blood vessels can sometimes become too narrow, perhaps due to constriction or plaque build up, or sometimes obstructions can take the form of blood clots. Unlike house pipes, the circulatory system contains valves in some areas as well, which can become dysfunctional.

 

Some common conditions that affect the circulatory system are vasoconstriction (blood vessels too narrow), spider veins and varicosities (blood vessels bulge too wide in some areas) and blood clots. There are many herbal medicines and nutrients that can be used to assist with the management of some of these. For instance, when there is a pronounced vasoconstriction, blood vessels can be “opened up” or dilated with the use of nitric oxide enhancers.

 

Nitric oxide is a gas naturally produced in the endothelium of the body. It signals the smooth muscles that surrounds a blood vessel to relax, allowing the blood vessel to open up. This allows more volume of blood to flow through, like letting go of a garden hose that you are pinching with thumb and forefinger. This is also a great method for managing high blood pressure and enhancing nutrient delivery to skeletal muscle tissue during exercise. Naturally, as a blood vessels dilate, the pressure inside them is reduced. One of the best nutrients to support this process is Citrulline Malate, though Arginine or Arginine AKG may also be used.

 

One scientific study published in Biochemical and Biophysical Research in 2014 indicated that arginine and citrulline, when taken together, significantly bolstered nitric oxide synthesis and increased circulation to the peripheries. This is not surprising given the therapeutic potential of nitric oxide (NO). Natural nitrates found in food also provide a method for increasing NO synthesis. This occurs via an alternative pathway to the citrulline/arginine route. The best dietary sources of nitrates are beetroot and spinach.

 

Ginkgo Biloba is a popular remedy for low cerebral circulation. Increasing circulation to the brain may assist with nutrient delivery and help to improve the health of the neurons, thus supporting focus and memory. In fact, Brahmi has also been shown to support cerebral circulation by mediating cerebral vasodilation, as reported in the Annals of Neurosciences in 2017. Hawthorn is also an excellent herb to assist with the contractile ability of the heart, decrease blood pressure and improve vascular health. Ginger is also great for improving blood vessel dilation and the delivery of blood to tissues. Cold hands and feet can be a sign that blood flow to the extremities may be limited.
