What is Poor Leg Circulation?
Millions of Americans live with and suffer from symptoms associated with poor circulation, but many of them don’t realize the impact that poor blood flow is having on their lives.
The circulatory system is made up of vessels and muscles that help control the flow of blood around the body. The average human body contains over 60,000 miles of blood vessels. This is your circulation. Your circulatory system is responsible for carrying oxygen and essential nutrients to all living cells around your body via the arteries, and carrying the waste products and carbon dioxide via your veins. Find out more about the cause, symptoms and how to treat poor circulation.
Common causes of poor circulation
From our 30s onwards, our body composition starts to change - we begin to lose muscle mass, muscle strength and endurance.
High blood pressure, high cholesterol or diabetes, can affect the blood vessels and restrict the normal flow of blood causing poor circulation.
Sitting or standing for long periods can significantly slow down blood flow, with the extremities like the feet, legs and hands the first to be affected by the lack of fresh oxygen and nutrients, resulting in poor leg circulation.
