For good health your blood needs to be circulated properly in your body because it is the blood which carries all the nutrients to your body cells and tissues. Blood is also said to be the carrier of oxygen. You can well understand what will happen to that part of your body where oxygen is not supplied. If blood is not supplied to your brain in sufficient amount, you may get stroke or your brain will stop working and may send you in comma state. If you have poor blood circulation, you are likely to get heart attack, kidney failure, paralysis etc. Baldness is also caused due to poor blood circulation.
Blood circulation can be improved in many ways. One of the best ways to improve blood circulation is good diet. Given below are the details of some foods which are very effective in improving your blood circulation.
Foods rich in Vitamin C are considered to be very effective in improving blood circulation. Lemon, oranges, papaya, pineapple, mangoes etc are foods which are highly rich in Vitamin C apart from other vital Vitamins and minerals. These foods also build your immune system. You don’t have to eat all these foods daily. But you must eat at least one of these foods daily if you want to improve your blood circulation. If you drink lemon juice daily it is very beneficial. It is easily available throughout the year too.
Coconut water is one of the best drinks to improve your blood circulation. It gives you strength and also gives relief from acidity and weakness. Coconut water is also known as the replacement of blood. Hence if you are anemic, it will benefit you a lot.
Watermelon and tomatoes are considered to be the best foods for good blood circulation because they contain very powerful antioxidant known as lycopene (apart from Vitamin C). Lycopene prevents the formation of plaque on the walls of your arteries due to which blood flow remains smooth in your body. If plaque will be formed on the walls of your arteries, blood flow will be obstructed and may cause heart failure, stroke etc.
There are many other foods too which play vital role in improving your blood circulation such as garlic, ginger, pumpkin seeds, cauliflower etc. If you want to improve your blood circulation, include these foods in your diet.
