6 Ways to Increase Your Circulation
Your lymphatic circulatory system works directly with your cardiovascular circulatory system to keep blood and lymphatic fluid levels in balance and flush toxins out of the body. It also carries immune cells throughout the body to help defend against infections.
But your lymphatic system isn’t lucky enough to have a powerful organ like the heart to keep fluid flowing.
If your lymphatic circulation slows or stagnates, toxins will accumulate and immune cells won’t be delivered to the areas of the body where they’re needed, causing a variety of ailments, the very least of which are aches, pains, and swelling (lymph edema). This can also cause deterioration of your thymus gland, tonsils, and spleen – key components of your immune system — and weaken your body’s ability to fight infection and disease.
6 ACTIVITIES THAT BOOST BOTH KINDS OF CIRCULATION
There are a number of easy and effective ways to improve the health of both your cardiovascular and lymphatic circulatory systems:
1. Drink plenty of water
Circulation is vital to all of the body’s functions, and water makes up a large part of blood volume. Make sure you drink enough water every day and don’t allow yourself to get dehydrated, causing pressure on your circulatory system.
