Cold weather causes your arteries and veins to constrict, which decreases blood flow, raises your blood pressure and can also reduce the amount of oxygen your heart is getting.1,2 If you already have a heart condition, poor circulation can exacerbate the problem.1,2

When you consider that winter is also a time when we tend to exercise less and eat more, in addition to this strain on your circulatory system, it’s no wonder that heart attacks are more likely to occur during the colder months.1-3

SYMPTOMS OF POOR CIRCULATION

If you’ve noticed any of these symptoms recently, they could be your body’s way of warning you that your circulation is sluggish and needs a boost:4

  • Cold hands and feet
  • Numbness or tingling (“pins and needles”) in hands and feet
  • Stiff, sore joints
  • Muscle cramping
  • Pale or blueish skin tone on your hands, feet, lips, nose and ears

HOW TO BOOST YOUR CIRCULATION

coMra treatments work best in combination with a heart-healthy lifestyle. Here are some tips for improving your circulation while using coMra protocols:5

  • Exercise regularly. Just 30 minutes of mild to moderate exercise a day will improve your circulation and benefit your heart. Remember to warm up properly beforehand and cool down afterwards, to prevent injury or strain. It’s also important to dress in layers, which you can take off as your muscles warm up and put back on after cooling down.
  • Stretch. Be sure to stretch regularly during the day, especially if you sit at a desk all day. Basic stretches improve blood flow to your organs and tissues.
  • Stay hydrated. Drinking enough water promotes healthy circulation and helps to carry nutrients and oxygen to your body’s cells. It also helps to stabilise blood pressure and regulate body temperature.
  • Add more omega-3 to your diet. Omega-3 fatty acids support heart health and improve circulation. These nutrients can be found in fatty fish, fish oil, flax seeds, walnuts and kale.
  • Treat yourself to a massage. Getting a massage has physical and mental health benefits. Massages ease aches and pains, and boost your circulation by moving blood and lymph fluid more effectively through your limbs. They’re also great for relieving stress, which can have a big impact on heart health.
