Six Ways to Improve Circulation

According to Active.com, increasing circulation is possible with these simple six steps.

1.) Get Moving: Physical exercise is the fastest and best way to improve circulation. It is also great for your heart! The American Heart Association recommends at least 150 minutes of moderate activity, or 75 minutes of vigorous activity each week.

2.) Get a Massage: The art of massage is good for the entire body. The movement of pushing and pulling the skin not only increases blood flow to each area, oxygenates the cells, but also helps the body release toxins and lactic acid.

3.)  Take Deep Breaths: Not only does breathing deeply help to increase oxygen circulating throughout the entire body, but one ml of oxygen consumed burns five calories.

4.) Watch Your Diet: Consuming citrus and iron-rich foods are known to help stimulate circulation.

5.) Add Some Spice: Spices such as chili pepper and turmeric are known for stimulating circulation as well as some anti-inflammatory qualities.

6.) A New Way to Shower: Alternating cold and hot water may help increase circulation as hot water helps blood flow rush to the surface of the skin.
