Why is circulation important?

Improves circulation | Alleviates discomfort | Reduces swollen feet and ankles

Circulation is the word used to describe the constant movement of blood around the body, made possible by the pumping action of the heart. This movement or ‘flow’ of blood takes place in a network of tubes known as blood vessels. Arteries are blood vessels that carry blood away from the heart, while veins are blood vessels that carry blood towards it.

Returning blood to the heart from lower parts of the body (such as the feet and legs) is hard work for the circulation, because this blood has to be pushed uphill. The circulation therefore needs help from muscles that surround veins. When we walk, for example, muscles in our feet and legs help to pump blood upwards, in the same way as you would squeeze liquid along a tube.

Circulation can deteriorate as we get older, but circulation problems can affect anyone who isn’t as active as they might be, whatever their age. Symptoms of poorer circulation include things like cold hands and feet, muscle cramps and tired, ‘heavy’ or aching legs. We can improve our circulation by taking more exercise and eating a circulation-friendly diet.
