Useful info and health tips
Maintaining a healthy condition of your arteries and veins will help ensure you avoid developing vascular diseases as you age. Check out our tips below on improving your circulation and overall vascular health.
Don’t Smoke or Use Tobacco
Avoid smoking or using pipes, cigars, cigarettes, and chewing tobacco. Smoking is a huge risk factor for developing vascular diseases, such as peripheral arterial disease, a term describing narrowed arteries going to the legs, stomach, arms, and head.
Eat a Healthy Diet
Try to eat a diet low in cholesterol and saturated fat to improve your blood circulation. An unhealthy diet can lead to atherosclerosis, the process of plaque buildup in your arteries, which can slow or stop blood flow to and from your blood vessels. Eat healthy, control your blood sugar levels, and keep a frequent eye out for your blood pressure and cholesterol levels.
Maintain a Healthy Weight
For every pound of fat, your heart needs to pump blood through an extra mile’s worth of blood vessels. Maintaining a healthy weight and body mass index helps ensure you keep other risk factors at bay. Try to exercise regularly and form a healthy diet in order to be at a consistent, healthy weight.
