What promotes better blood circulation

Promote blood circulation: These home remedies will help

You can stimulate your blood circulation with home remedies. In addition to simple measures, certain foods also improve blood flow in the body.

Promote blood circulation with home remedies - it's that easy

Boost your blood circulation, and not only your muscles are happy about it. All organs, especially the heart and brain, are grateful for a good supply of oxygen.

  • Exercise: One of the most natural means of promoting blood circulation is exercise. Muscles and circulation are stressed, and blood flow is promoted throughout the body. You don't have to become a top athlete, it's more a matter of regularity than intensity. Walks, swimming, cycling or hiking strengthen the blood vessels and improve blood circulation.
  • Massages: You can even perform a blood circulation-enhancing massage on certain parts of the body, such as the calf or thigh. It is important that you massage towards the trunk of your body, i.e. towards your heart. Massage oil - which you can make yourself using our tips - supports the circulation-promoting effect, as does rubbing alcohol.
  • Foot and hand bath: A warm foot or hand bath not only promotes blood circulation in the foot or hand. The warmth widens the blood vessels, even further up in the extremities. Additives such as rosemary also increase the effect. In addition, such a bath helps with a nail bed inflammation.
  • Alternating showers: In alternating showers, the vessels are alternately widened and narrowed. In this way, you effectively train your vascular system and keep the veins supple - and healthy, elastic vessels are the prerequisite for good blood circulation.

Food for better health and better blood flow

With your diet, you also influence the blood flow to the skin, muscles and organs.

  • Ginger: The healthy tuber is an all-rounder, also when it comes to promoting blood circulation. On the one hand, the hot substances in the tuber, which address the heat receptors, are responsible for this: they get warm. This of course promotes blood circulation. You can incorporate ginger into your cooking recipes or take it as a ginger tea.
  • Garlic: Garlic is also considered a miracle bulb because of its healthy effect - especially on the cardiovascular system. Garlic lowers blood pressure, prevents deposits on the vessel walls and also reduces platelet aggregation, i.e. the sticking together of the blood platelets as part of blood clotting.
  • Turmeric: The plant is related to the aforementioned ginger and has a similar health-promoting effect. The active ingredient curcumin in turmeric ensures better blood circulation. This active ingredient also prevents unwanted clumping of blood platelets and thus prevents the formation of thrombi. Curcumin also reduces the build-up of vascular deposits so that the blood can flow better.
