Schema des BlutkreislaufsPoor circulation can lead to major or minor health problems. Someone recently asked me what food would be helpful for circulation. I had to answer with a question. Why are you asking? What kind of symptoms do you have to cause you to be concerned about your circulation? The subject at hand was about almonds.

Yes, almonds are a healthy food that will benefit your circulation because they are rich in several nutrients your body needs to function well. However, one food or activity alone will not solve any health problem. It takes the synergy of a variety of foods, nutrients, and activity to have good circulation.

What do we mean when we refer to circulation?

The way I understand circulation is that it is how and where the blood flows throughout our body. This is called the circulatory system. If at any point blood flow is restricted to any degree to any part of the body, that body part will be affected. That, in turn, can affect other functions of the body.

When we eat, food is broken down in the digestive tract, and eventually, nutrients from that food are absorbed and assimilated into our bloodstream. The blood then flows through our veins and arteries delivering nutrients to each and every part of the body.

The blood also carries oxygen from the lungs to all parts of the body through the circulatory system.

The main pump that keeps the blood moving is, of course, the heart. The lymph system also helps in the distribution process. It transports nutrients to the trillions of cells in the body as well as transporting toxins out of the body.

The human body that God designed is quite an amazing machine.
