Let’s do this without any sugarcoating: there’s a good chance you have poor blood circulation.

1. Freshly-Extracted Juices

Freshly-extracted juices are some of the best foods that help improve blood circulation. Fresh juices work because of their alkalizing and blood-cleansing properties that neutralize oxidative stress in the body.

Within minutes of drinking a glass of freshly-extracted juice, enzymes are activated, and blood vessels are dilated to significantly increase blood circulation. Green juices and beetroot juice are among the best recommended for daily consumption, if you have an issue with blood circulation—they are natural, fresh and effective.

2. Broccoli Sprout Juice

One of my favorite go-to juices is the broccoli sprout juice that has a high amount of glucoraphanin that converts to sulforaphane. Sulforaphane works magically in the human body, in many ways—in protecting the lining of arteries, boost a natural defence mechanism to protect arteries from diseases, undoing damages to heart blood vessels caused by diabetes—which all in turn contribute to better and much improved blood circulation.

In the process, and with regular consumption of broccoli sprouts, it helps reverse many chronic diseases caused by inflammation. Again, inflammation is often due to poor blood circulation over many years.

3. Citrus Fruits

Citrus fruits such as lemon, lime, grapefruit and orange are some of the best food sources for vitamin C and their bioflavonoids. Although they may taste acidic, they are really alkaline-forming and detoxifying when ingested. Alkalized blood means reduced acidity in the blood = better blood circulation.

Add a few slices of lemon or lime in your water daily to take advantage of their potent blood-circulation properties, while purifying your blood at the same time!

4. Matcha Green Tea

Matcha is 100% green tea leaves that have been ground into fine powder and is more concentrated than green tea. The health benefits of matcha green tea are significant as it helps to improve blood flow.An essential factor that influences your blood circulation is the function of your blood vessels’ inner lining, scientifically referred to as endothelium. It produces nitric oxide (your body’s natural, powerful vessel-relaxing substance), fights back arterial plaque, even controls the formation of blood clots—and green tea is known to improve endothelial function almost instantly. Moreover, thanks to its great antioxidative potential, green tea can even reverse endothelial damage in smokers, improving their blood flow as well.

5. Ginkgo Biloba

Ginkgo Biloba is extremely beneficial for a lot of health aspects, and one of them is the blood supply to the heart (coronary blood circulation). By the way, studies indicate that this plant works especially well in patients with coronary disease and in healthy elderly adults.

6. Vitamin B3 (Niacin)

A lot of folks take aspirin (acetylsalicylic acid) daily as a blood-thinning medication but a more natural and safer alternative that works better is vitamin 3 (niacin)? Within 20 to 30 minutes after taking niacin, your blood vessels dilate, causing a warming sensation in your body—that’s the magical effect of niacin, known as the ‘niacin flush’—the true power of niacin.

Niacin has a long list of uses, since improving your blood circulation means reversing many symptoms. While reducing blood pressure, it improves circulation to the legs and feet in diabetics and the elderly.

It increases blood supply to the ear in cases of near-deafness, vertigo and tinnitus (ringing in the ear). Some even take it at the first sign of migraine, and instantly stop the pain, as niacin supplies blood directly to the brain.

7. Hot Peppers

The substance that’s responsible for the delicious hot flavor of spicy peppers is called capsaicinand it has quite a few fancy benefits for your blood circulation. For example, it prevents arterial plaque by elevating the level of “good cholesterol” (high-density lipoprotein), helps the blood vessels relax by improving nitric oxide synthesis, and boosts your metabolism in general. More reason to spice up your meals for a better circulation!

8.Hawthorn (Crataegus) Extract

In terms of improving circulation, hawthorn extract is pretty much a miracle thing with a long list of benefits: It protects the inner lining of the blood vessels, helps them to dilate and relax, strengthens the heart, prevents blood clotting, improves cholesterol levels, and even normalizes blood pressure. What’s also important, hawthorn is one of the safest plants recommended for cardiovascular support, with no side effects or known herb-drug interactions.

9. Turmeric (Curcumin)

One of the most popular spices worldwide and an essential component of curry, turmeric is rich in curcumin—a natural phenol with a powerful vessel-protective action. Curcumin improves endothelial function by alleviating damage from free radicals, and helping the blood vessels relax—thus letting more blood flow through them.

10. Near Infrared Light Therapy

One of the key reasons why near infrared light therapy is so effective in assisting the body to heal from inflammation, aches, pains, wound, injuries and various diseases/infections is that it improves and enhances blood flow. Better blood flow means that your blood vessels are able to carry more oxygen and nutrients to the injured tissues to stimulate and accelerate healing.

After just 15-20 minutes of treatment with NIR light, blood circulation is increased to injured nerves and tissues to boost local circulation. Production of nitric oxide is improved, thus promotes healing and relieves pain.
