Turmeric has a compound called curcumin. Curcumin gives turmeric its anti-inflammatory properties. It’s been a traditional part of Chinese and Indian medicine due to its medicinal properties.
Citrus fruits like lemons and oranges are rich in antioxidants such as flavonoids. Including these fruits in your diet can reduce inflammation in your body.
This next choice is not for everyone, but if you’re trying to keep your blood circulation in check, you might want to give it a try. Beets are rich in nitrates. Your body will be able to convert them into nitric oxide. With increased production of nitric oxide, your blood vessels relax and become wider. This helps your blood flow easier.
Not everybody’s into spice, but if you are, cayenne pepper can do the trick. Cayenne pepper has a spicy flavor that comes from the phytochemical capsaicin. The capsaicin also helps relax your blood vessels and keeps your arteries working. The free flow of blood helps reduce blood pressure as well.
Walnuts are rich in vitamin E and compounds like l-arginine and alpha-lipoic acid (ALA). These compounds can help increase the amount of nitric oxide.
Berries are not only very tasty, but are great for your health too. Berries come with antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties, which can help increase your blood flow.
Garlic is a popular food known for its benefits with respect to blood circulation and heart health. Garlic has sulfur compounds such as allicin which raise your tissue blood flow. They also keep your blood pressure low by helping your blood vessels relax.
When was the last time you ate fish? If it’s been a while, give it a try. Fatty fish such as salmon, tuna, and sardines are a great source of omega fatty acids. These are important for your blood circulation. They help increase the production of nitric oxide. The nitric oxide will get your blood vessels to dilate and improve the blood flow.
Onions are a great source of antioxidants, especially flavonoids. They help improve blood circulation as well. They make this happen by widening your arteries and veins, which makes it easier for the blood to flow. The flavonoids and anti-inflammatory properties of onions can also help reduce inflammation in your arteries.
Ginger has been a part of traditional medicine in India and China for a long time. It comes with so many great health benefits. One of those benefits is its ability to bring down your blood pressure levels and increase your circulation.
