Blood circulation is an important process that delivers blood, nutrients, and oxygen to the cells and tissues of the body. When blood circulation (blood circulation) is poor, the body can encounter many dangerous health problems.

In this article, let's learn more about what blood circulation is and how to improve poor blood circulation to improve your health.

What is the circulatory system (blood circulation)?

Hệ tuần hoàn máu
Circulatory system of the human body

It includes the heart, blood vessels (including arteries and veins), and smaller vessels called small blood vessels (capillaries). The heart is the central organ of this system, pushing blood through the blood vessels to other parts of the body.

The blood vessels act as a network, bringing blood to each part of the body and ensuring that the various organs are supplied with oxygen and nutrients. The circulatory system also helps to remove waste and CO2 from the body. It is an important part of how we stay healthy and active on a daily basis.

Why is the circulatory system important to the body?

  • Supply of oxygen and nutrients: The circulatory system delivers oxygen and nutrients to cells and tissues in the body. Oxygen is essential for cells to function and survive. Without oxygen, the cells will not function properly and lead to health problems.
  • Removal of waste products and carbon dioxide: The circulatory system removes waste products and carbon dioxide from the body. If these wastes are not removed, they will accumulate in the body and cause health problems.
  • Keeps body temperature stable: The circulatory system helps keep body temperature stable. It provides a stable temperature and blood pressure to the body, helping the body to maintain optimal functioning.
  • Helps to cope with diseases: The circulatory system helps to deal with diseases such as cardiovascular disease, diabetes, lung disease and others. When the circulatory system is functioning properly, it helps to maintain the overall health of the body.

Why is blood circulation poor?

Poor circulation occurs when something goes wrong with a part of the blood circulation system or the valve that controls the direction of blood. Just like a delivery driver has problems and delays in the delivery process, blood can encounter obstacles and obstacles along the way.

Obstacles in your blood vessels make it difficult for blood to pass through, especially when trying to reach the parts of your body that are furthest from your heart — your fingers and toes . The biggest problem with poor circulation is that your cells don't get as much oxygen as they need. When cells don't have the oxygen they need, they can't function as well as they should.

Signs of a poor circulatory system

Symptoms vary widely depending on the specific disease. Therefore, it is important that you inform your specialist about any symptoms you are experiencing. They will investigate what is wrong and conduct tests if necessary. Some common symptoms include:
