When you sit all day or cross your legs, there will be a phenomenon of dilation of the veins, which can create a sensation of swelling and tingling in your lower limbs (for example, legs, ankles and feet) or even give the sensation of abnormally cold feet. This means that you then suffer from poor blood circulation. But other symptoms may also appear, such as painful varicose veins (veins), a bluish discoloration of the skin in certain places. This is a sign that the blood pressure is not being released properly.
We often overlook the symptoms of poor blood circulation, and without treatment, this can lead to chronic diseases that can have a negative impact on the brain (stroke) as well as on the renal system. No one is immune, but some people are more at risk than others. The most common causes are smoking, high blood pressure, physical inactivity, poor nutrition and being overweight, which contribute to the development of poor blood circulation. Even pregnant women are also more likely to suffer from this disease.
When blood stagnated, the veins dilate, carrying oxygen-depleted, bluish-tinged blood. It is the movements that will allow the blood to circulate well to the feet. For this it is necessary to get up every hour and take at least 10 steps and the venous pump is activated.
