What causes poor circulation?
There are many things that can lead to poor circulation in the body, from obesity to smoking. But one of the main reasons, that are hard to avoid, is aging. As we age, our bodies grow weaker and we become more susceptible to diseases related to poor circulation and heart health. A key ingredient in making sure that our veins can do their job, is collagen.
Collagen is one of the most potent proteins in our bodies, and can be seen as the glue that keeps us together. It is found in our skin, tendons, cartilage, teeth, connective tissue, arteries, and many more places. It is what keeps us feeling young and supple, but as we age the production of collagen drops, making our skin wrinkle and our joints ache, and the risk of heart diseases increases.
How to improve your blood circulation?
By giving your body the tools it needs to ensure a good production of collagen, you can help keep your cardiovascular system healthy. Not only does collagen help keep your veins and skin elastic, it is also high in amino acids, with two of them being proline and arginine. Proline cleans away fat that has accumulated in your arteries, which in turn leads to a healthier blood pressure. It also repairs the tissue in the arteries, as well as the tissue in your joints. Arginine helps widen and relax the arteries, making it easier for blood to flow through, and thereby improving the blood circulation. For the synthesis of collagen, vitamin C is absolutely essential.
Our Circulation Support capsules are designed to give you the vitamin boost needed to be able to produce the sufficient amount of collagen for a healthy circulation. Of course, simply taking supplements won’t make any wonders, so we highly recommend that you combine them with a healthy, varied diet.
The best ingredients that can help your circulation
Calcium Ascorbate is a so called mineral ascorbate, made from combining the two ingredients calcium and ascorbic acid (vitamin C). The calcium percentage is approximately 10% by mass. Calcium is an essential mineral for your body, and plays a vital role in bodily functions such as muscle contraction, building of healthy bones, allowing blood to clot, and to keep the heart beating. The body cannot create calcium of its own, and need it from a dietary source. If calcium deficiency happens, the body might instead take the mineral from your bones, making them weak and breakable. Vitamin C aids in the bodily absorption of calcium, which is why it’s a good idea to take them together.
Magnesium Ascorbate is also a mineral ascorbate, made from combining the two ingredients magnesium and ascorbic acid (vitamin C). This combination makes it a non-acidic (buffered) form of vitamin C, which is perfect for people with gastric irritation from being acid-sensitive. It has a high bioavailability, and will give you not only the benefits of vitamin C, but those of magnesium as well.
Camu-Camu (Myrciaria dubia) is thought to be the most vitamin C-filled plant on our planet. It is highly popular in Peru, and grows in the swampy areas of the Amazon rainforest. Except for vitamin C, camu camu is also rich in beta-carotene (the pigment that makes fruits and vegetables red/orange, and gets converted into vitamin A by the body), fatty acids, and protein. It has been used as traditional medicine to treat ailments such as the common cold, hardening of the arteries, and some eye conditions, as it is believed that camu camu can improve energy levels and help maintain healthy eyes, gum, immune system, and skin.
