Bad circulation in and of itself is never good, however, it could mean that you have blocked arteries. Having a blocked artery can kill you. This is why it’s important to know the signs so you can catch this in time.
Almost in all cases, poor circulation means you are in poor health and you need to go see your doctor. It could mean anything ranging from low blood pressure to heart problems to diabetes.
What are some other things that may cause bad circulation?
- Sitting too much (see video at bottom for exercises to help circulation)
- Eating fast food, a lot
- Obesity (imagine that)
Why is good circulation important?
Every organ in your body depends on your free-flowing blood to receive the vital nutrients needed to function. Even if we slow down this process it can damage important organs like the brain and heart.
Think of a traffic jam on the 405 in Los Angeles for instance.
When this happens, there is zero productivity happening; no one is getting anything done (let’s pretend iPhones don’t exist for a minute) or delivering goods to areas that need it. In order for the city and surrounding areas to “stay alive,” we need traffic to flow.
CHRONICALLY TIRED? CRAMPING UP? PAIN IN YOUR LEGS?
This could be signs that you have peripheral artery disease.

You have probably heard the saying by Hippocrates “Walking is The Best Medicine”. And when you think about it, that short sentence tells you a lot about your health. Walking combined with a healthy diet, and good night sleep can help you avoid the doctor altogether.
As little as 15-30 minutes of walking every day can drastically improve not only a person’s overall appearance but health as well. Plus, walking is free, easy and requires little effort.
Here’s a list of benefits you can get by walking every day:
1. Positive brain changes
All kinds of physical activity, including the low impact aerobic exercises like walking, rejuvenate the entire body by sending new blood throughout the entire body. That way, you feel better and healthier, and your brain gets enough blood to function properly. It can prevent early dementia, reduce the risk of Alzheimer’s disease, and improve your mental health.
2. Improved eyesight
Even though eyes might seem like the last thing to be connected with the legs, walking actually benefits their health too. Walking (and exercise as a whole) may reduce the eye pressure, and thus help to fight glaucoma.
3. Prevention of heart disease
Walking is not the same thing as running, however, it is as effective as running when it comes to the prevention of heart problems. It lowers the bl… Read the rest
