Good blood circulation is essential for good health. Your blood helps transport nutrients and oxygen to every part of your body. Any problem with your circulatory system can lead to various types of health problems. If untreated, it can cause serious damage to your brain, heart, liver, kidneys, and other vital organs.
You may have poor blood circulation for many reasons, including the most common atherosclerosis, or “hard of arteries”, and peripheral arterial disease (PAD).
Poor blood circulation means that parts of the body, especially your hands and feet, receive an insufficient amount of blood. Plaque buildup in your arteries and other factors can slow down blood flow and make it more difficult to make blood desired.
Here are 5 the prominent signs of poor Blood Circulation:
1. Cold hands and feet
Proper blood flow helps in maintaining a healthy body temperature. When blood flow is disrupted, then the body cannot maintain its normal temperature, which results in cold hands and feet.
2. Swollen Feet
Due to lack of blood flow, kidneys are unable to complete the process of keeping fluid in blood vessels where it should be. This allows for extracting fluid from the adjacent tissues and gravity pulls the liquid towards feet. In extreme cases, bad circulation can also cause foot ulcers.
3. Impaired Cognitive Function
Bad blood flow can also affect the functioning of your brain, due to which memory loss, difficulty concentrating and focusing, less attention can be caused. Your brain requires a continuous flow of blood to function properly.
4. Regular Fatigues
Your muscles require enough blood to work properly and to prevent muscle fatigue. Slow blood flow around your body affects your energy level and you feel tired as hard as your heart has to work hard to pump blood continuously.
5. Discolored Skin
You can see that you also have yellow or pale skin if your tissues do not get enough blood. It’s not just your feet or hands that can change a different color. Doctors say – poor blood circulation can affect your nose, lips, ears and even the nipples.
