The Impact of Poor Circulation

Vincent Tones recently joined Michael Porter on Real Health to discuss circulatory problems and new CircuWell Circulation Booster by NatureLife SA

A Brief Summary of the Programme

Good circulation is vital for life, allowing our heart to pump and deliver oxygenated blood effectively. The heart has a lot of work to do. If every blood vessel in just one person’s body was stretched out and linked together it would go around the world 4 times!

Good blood vessel health ensures that the peristaltic movement created by the heart to pump blood through vessels can be carried out efficiently.

Causes of poor circulation

Some causes include:

  • Smoking
  • Lack of certain nutrient
  • Diabetes
  • High uric acid

Results of poor circulation

  • High Blood Pressure – results when the blood starts to strain to flow through the blood vessels.
  • Aching legs and feet
  • Restless legs
  • Cold hands and feet – fresh oxygenated blood is not reaching the extremities
  • Pins and needles at night Blood vessels become flaccid
  • Varicose veins and spider veins – indicate that your veins & capillaries are starting to twist causing blood to pool. This occurs when they become flaccid due to lack of collagen therefore elasticity. A bit like an old hosepipe left out in the sun.
  • Loss of short-term memory
  • Deadening of the nerves
  • Leg ulcers
  • Deep vein thrombosis

To repair or prevent these symptoms, we must ensure we have enough collagen in our system. Collagen is the most abundant protein in the human body and is found in the bones, muscles, skin, and tendons. It is the substance that holds the body together, forming a scaffold to provide strength and structure.


With the correct nutrients and supplements, the effects of poor circulation can be reversed. The time it takes correlates to how long you have suffered with the problem e.g.  if you have seen a various vein on your leg for the past year, it will take a month or 2 of supplementation to repair.  5 years – 5 months of supplementation followed by a lower dose to stop it happening again.

Natural preventative measures

Cayenne pepper, chillies, capsicum, red or black pepper – anything hot which has a rubefacient effect meaning it dilates vessels and increases blood flow.cay

Green vegetables such as spinach and broccoli. They contain chlorophyll which helps the body produce collagen.

Bone Broth – boil up a whole chicken to get collagen from the bones.

If you are a vegan – get your bioflavonoids from high vitamin C foods such as pineapple, rosehip, parsley and green veggies

Exercise – just move more!
