Your body is a complex network of nerves, tissues and other structures that relies on countless chemical reactions to function normally. It needs a constant supply of heat, nutrients and oxygen to carry out the necessary chemical reactions for healthy functioning.
Your body adjusts your blood flow depending on your surrounding climate and temperature. It perpetually works to make sure that it maintains the optimal temperature conditions inside the body so the biological processes keep working the way they always have.
A stroke occurs when there is a sudden interruption of the blood supply to the brain. Sometimes called a “brain attack”, a stroke is a serious emergency that requires immediate medical attention. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), strokes are the fifth-leading cause of death in the U.S.
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), heart diseases are the leading cause of deaths in the United States claiming nearly 700,000 lives each year. The heart acts as the engine of the body.
Have you been experiencing sudden bouts of weakness and numbness in the limbs for no apparent reason? These can be symptoms of poor blood flow. Usually, our body exhibits these symptoms, which we often overlook. Which is why we often don’t get to the root of the problem until it aggravates into something major.
Did you know that blocked blood flow is the reason you get a heart attack? Strokes are the third leading cause of death in the US and over 700,000 citizens suffer from it every year.
A healthy cardiovascular system transports oxygen, nutrients, and blood throughout the body. However, due to a condition or illness, the blood flow to one or more regions is reduced, resulting in poor circulation. Regions most commonly affected are the extremities such as the arms the legs.
Old age, genetics, poor eating habits, and a sedentary lifestyle are a few leading causes of poor blood circulation. Through circulation, the blood in our body transports vital minerals and nutrients, which help maintain healthy organ function and stimulate cell growth.
“Use it or lose it.”
That’s what they always say when it comes to exercise.
There’s plenty of research and evidence out there to support the fact that exercise helps maintain a healthy heart, but sometimes, it can get a little too much.
