Good circulation is necessary for the delivery of nutrients to, and the removal of wastes from, all the cells of the body. It is also critical to the oxygenation of the blood, which takes place as blood is moved through the lungs.
Poor circulation generally shows up first in the arms, hands, legs, and feet. Symptoms may include dull cramping, swelling, numbness or tingling, pale or bluish skin, cold skin, and sores that don't heal quickly. Lack of exercise, smoking, diabetes, high blood pressure, and hardened arteries may contribute to poor circulation.
