Poor peripheral circulation
Poor circulation is quite common in peripheral parts of the body, or outer reaches of your body, as these areas are quite distant from the heart and at greater risk of inadequate blood supply. Inadequate blood supply can occur at these sites due to muscle contraction in the small blood vessels, or the capillaries themselves may be weak. Diet and lifestyle choices including poor diet, dehydration and physical inactivity affect circulation.
Our top picks to support healthy blood circulation
1. Ginkgo biloba supports healthy blood circulation and blood flow to the peripheral areas of the body including hands, legs and feet, and maintains capillary health. Maintaining healthy peripheral circulation supports blood flow to the hands, legs and feet. See Ginkgo Biloba 6000.
2. Grape seed supports healthy capillaries and cardiovascular system health. See Grape Seed Gold.
3. Omega-3 fatty acids (FAs) from fish oil contain both eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA). DHA is the principal FA incorporated into myocardial membrane phospholipids while EPA is the precursor to the series 3 prostaglandins (PGE3). Omega-3 FAs support healthy blood circulation, heart and cardiovascular system health. See Omega-3 Concentrate.
