Benefits Of Blood Circulation
To a certain extent: Studies have shown that alcohol, especially wine, has protective effects on the heart and circulation. Women are advised to limit alcohol to one drink a day and men two drinks a day. Alcohol is not recommended in pregnant women, people with a history of alcoholism, liver disease, or stroke.
Depends: Problems of "blood circulation" can be variously and broadly defined. Can be as simple as cool extremities with normal blood vessels, or as severe as possible loss of limbs due to significantly blocked vessels. Also depends on whether the problems are arterial or venous. So recommendations for "improvement" depend on cause. Risk factor control, exercise, judicious medication use are options.See 1 more doctor answer
Exercise is good: Overall good blood circulation is best supported by making healthy lifestyle and behavioral choices. Eat well and sensibly, watch your weight, avoid tobacco which narrows blood vessels, know your family and personal risk for developing atherosclerosis of your blood vessels. Exercise, including cardiovascular, will help your heart and blood vessels stay healthy.
Gradual exercise: Although some medications and surgical procedures can restore compromised leg blood circulation, progressive exercise may stimulate "collateral" circulation. Unfortunately there may be genetic factors involved as well, since not all patients have ability to form new vessels.
Careful history/phys: A detailed history and physical by a practitioner qualified to study circulation issues can help so much here! A close scrutiny of the various pulses in the body and any accompanying deficiencies attendant to them will be your best bet. Good luck!
Your skin should: Feel warm and look pink. Your hands and feet should feel warm too. If you are moving, your blood will be circulating well. Your heart pumps blood to every organ, especially the brain, and when exercising, it pumps it throughout your body, and to your muscles. If your circulation is poor, your complexion may look pale, and you may feel cold all the time. In that case UR doctor needs to do a work up.
Circulation: Figuring out those problems is a doctor's job
Myth: Take a shower which is comfortable for you. The purpose of a shower is to clean your body. Your blood circulation will benefit from exercise, normal weight and drinking lots of water.
It depends.: It depends probably on your weight, health, physical condition, and diet. Good exercise can help this a lot, along with weight loss. These often go hand & hand. They can also improve your health, which is part genetic and part what you make of it. A healthy diet of limited fats, sugars, and especially salt can really help blood flow by lowering pressure and lowering risk for atherosclerosis.
Having cold hands?: Keeping warm, active, don't smoke, and of course a healthy, balanced diet/exercise will help you maintain good health. Since u are 21 and possibley having cold hands/feet? I suspect you may have a vasospastic condition called raynaud's phenomenon. When exposed to cold, this can cause significant symptoms--color changes, pain etc. Keep warm, wear gloves. Consult doc for eval/treatment. Good luck.
Circulation: Not a question of slow or fast but of delivery of oxygen and substrate to the tissues. Too slow and usually not enough delivery, too fast in some situations could also cause inadequate delivery

People: People are not sutured together to share their blood supply. Just one of a number of possible difficulties with this is that their blood would have to be completely compatible.See 1 more doctor answer
