Each part of the body needs a steady supply of oxygen-rich blood to function properly. Your organs and brain suffer if this flow of nutrients is interrupted for whatever reason. Poor blood circulation can lead to heart, kidney and brain damage. Atherosclerosis and artery disease are just two of the ailments that occur when insufficient blood circulation takes over the body. If you have any of these warning signs of poor circulation, you need to visit your doctor immediately.
Do your hands or feet ever feel numb? This can be due to a number of reasons. The poor circulation could be a result of pressure on your limbs, condensation of your nerves or vulnerability to cold temperatures. Diabetes, multiple sclerosis and thyroid issues can also cause numbing of your hands and feet. Be sure to talk to your doctor about this early sign of poor circulation before it leads to greater health problems. You might just need to increase your magnesium and B12 intake.
