Healthy blood circulation juice recipe

Blood circulation is crucial to our health and our life, because blood is what brings nutrients and oxygen to the entire body. The circulatory system consists of the heart and blood vessels.

Keeping the heart and blood vessels healthy can help ensure that the circulatory system will work as it should and that the body gets the nutrition it needs.

This blood circulation juice recipe will help promote heart health and will support good blood circulation.

Cranberries:

A study published in the European Journal of Nutrition shows that the polyphenols in cranberries may help increase blood circulation.

Ginger:

It is a warming herb that is believed to increase blood circulation.

Ginger is also known to be a mild stimulant and can be used to promote circulation. That’s why I often enjoy sipping ginger tea on cold days to get the blood pumping and generate an overall feeling of warmth, states Lindsey Duncan a naturopathic doctor and certified nutritionist on Doctor Oz.

Grapefruit:

It improves blood flow and help metabolize sugar in the blood.
It also reduces fluid retention.
