Your Main Artery of Health
From the day you are born blood flow supports all healthy cell function. It is the foundation for living life to its fullest. Without robust blood flow your cells suffer and this can lead to all sorts of disorders as you age.
Your circulation slows down because of our modern and sedentary lifestyle. This slowing can lead to insufficient oxygen, nutrients, water and energy in your cells. This is the definition of aging as we know it.
The circulation of our blood is the engine that keeps us going.
Your heart pumps around 2000 gallons of blood through your main arteries every day. However, the heart alone cannot generate the full pumping capacity needed to supply all cells.
Do you know you have a second powerful pumping system?
74% of your blood movement takes place in microvessels called arterioles and venules (or capillaries). These are a fraction the size of a human hair. Adequate pumping in your smallest vessels supports healthy cell function. As we age we suffer from lack of energy, due largely to insufficient oxygen supply, poor nutrition and hydration, emotional stresses and lack of exercise.
We must look for methods to improve microvessel circulation and oxygenation of cells. Better circulation encourages each cell in the body to function optimally, correcting metabolic abnormalities to ensure freedom from pain and disease.
Our 80-100 trillion cells need oxygen, nutrients, water and metabolic waste removal.
Oxygen and Exercise: Get up and move every 20 minutes during your day. Activity such as walking or bicycling can widen vessels to deliver 5% to 7% more oxygen to your muscles and carry away waste. One medical device enhances blood flow by 29%.
Hydration: On a daily basis, drink ½ your body’s weight in ounces of water. If you weigh 150 lbs., then drink 75 oz. a day. 7 oz. of water each hour will hydrate your cells. Water removes waste in clogged vessels.
Nutrition: You are what you eat. Include variety from each food group each day. When choosing foods consider your health risks.
Emotional Stresses: Turn off cell phone while sleeping. Turn off Wi-Fi at night. Try to laugh more even if you force a fake laugh. Watch comedies and read jokes.
Remember blood flow supports all healthy cell function and is the foundation of good health and vitality.
