Ways to Improve Blood Circulation

Blood circulation plays an important part in our being. In order to stay healthy it is very important to have good blood circulation. Proper blood circulation helps in transferring nutrients and oxygen to various parts of the body. Lack of good blood circulation causes diseases due to harmful foreign particles entrapped in the tissue.

    The article on ''improving'' blood circulation is quite helpful except for: ''One can heighten the poor blood circulation problem by infusing rosemary leaves or flowers with red wine.'' Poor choice of word if it is meant to be 'helpful' and 'improve' blood circulation. Who would choose to 'heighten'' = (increase) the 'problem'? Wouldn't the correct word be 'lessen' or 'reduce' instead of ''heighten''= as in make worse? Hope this is helpful.

    I was given this great device to increase blood circulation in my feet and legs.

    It also gets rid of those aches in you in your calves. My wife bought me a circulation blood massager foot machine. It is called circulation max booster. I looked online and it cost £99 so I feel it is really good value for money.

    I've now told my dad who wants one for his birthday; I might be able to buy it without the vat because he has health issues so I will get him circulation max soon.
