Easy Ways To Improve Circulation
Patricia Lynn

Having good blood circulation is vital to living a healthy life! Having poor circulation can even go on to affect all sorts of different parts of your body too.

It can cause tingling sensations around your body, make your hands or feet abnormally cold, and can even cause lightheadedness, fatigue, hair loss, muscle cramps, and dry skin– among other side effects.

Luckily there are a bunch of natural, home remedies that can make it easy for you to improve your circulation. Keep reading through the list below to learn about some!


Turmeric contains an ingredient called Curcumin that helps to prevent your blood from forming into clots. It also helps to prevent plaque from building up in your arteries! Be sure to find ways to include turmeric in your diet to start improving your circulation with little effort.

Cayenne Pepper


The capsaicin in cayenne is a great way to not only stimulate better circulation through your body, but it even helps to strengthen your arteries. It also masks some of the symptoms you get from poor circulation, like headaches, tingling around the body, and cold hands and feet.

Even if you’re not so much into spicy foods, you can add a small amount of half a teaspoon of cayenne powder with two tablespoons of apple cider vinegar, and one table spoon of blackstrap molasses. Drink the mixture twice per day and you’ll start to notice better blood circulation in no time!

Get a massage!

Everyone loves massages anyways, so why not give your spouse extra incentive to give you one?! Having your body regularly massed is a great way to improve blood flow in areas that are prone to clots. It will even dilate your blood vessels to improve your circulation right away!

Coconut Oil

The fats and triglycerides in coconut oil work wonders in reducing inflammation in your arteries, which improves your blood circulation throughout your body. All you have to do is take in two to three table spoons of extra virgin coconut oil every day and you’ll have improved circulation with minimal effort.

Keep your legs elevated

Elevating your feet not only helps you helps to relax when you’re laying down, but for those who also have high blood pressure, it even helps to reduce swelling in your veins– which can produce abnormalities in your blood circulation. Just lay back, relax and prop up those legs!


Citrus fruits, and oranges in particular, are packed with Vitamin C. This is great for people with poor circulation because the vitamin helps to thin your blood and strengthen your capillary walls. It can even prevent plaque from accumulating in your arteries, which is a cause of bad circulation.


Another great way to cleanse your blood and prevent plaque from building up is by consuming more garlic. It’s frequently used to treat circulatory disorders and also helps to reduce high blood pressure. Other bulbed foods like leeks, onions, and radishes also work well in improving your circulation!
