Poor Circulation in Legs
Poor circulation in the lower extremities occurs when plaque builds up in the arteries that supply blood to the legs. Symptoms such as pain, numbness, or tingling sensation in legs are likely to be experienced in the event of reduced blood flow to the legs or feet. The following write-up provides information on the contributing factors for this circulatory problem.
Blood is a specialized body fluid that performs the vital function of transporting oxygen and nutrients to various parts of the body. While the oxygenated, nutrient-rich blood that is pumped by the heart is carried by the arteries to the cells, tissues, or the organs of the body, the veins deliver deoxygenated blood from various parts of the body to the heart. The pulmonary veins are an exception, as they carry oxygenated blood from the lungs to the heart.
If the arteries supplying blood to a particular part of the body become partially or completely blocked, a host of distressing symptoms could arise due to the reduced blood flow. Circulatory problems could also arise if the valves present in the veins are not working properly. Under such circumstances, the deoxygenated blood is prevented from returning to the heart. This causes the blood to collect in the veins.
Peripheral Vascular Disease (PVD) is an umbrella term that is used for the medical conditions associated with the blockage of the large arteries that are not located within the heart or the brain. Peripheral vascular disorders are often characterized by reduced blood flow to the legs and feet.
People who make poor lifestyle choices are more likely to be affected by circulatory problems. Poor blood circulation is often observed in the elderly, or people who are affected by certain medical conditions.
HOW D’OXYVA CAN HELP?
D’OXYVA is the only fully noninvasive, completely painless transdermal (over-the-skin) microcirculatory solution that has been clinically tested to significantly improve microcirculation.
The improvement of microcirculation, i.e., blood flow to the smallest blood vessels, benefits one’s health, immune system and overall sense of well-being in a variety of ways.
