Are there certain foods that increase circulation to distal parts of the body?

Are there certain foods that increase circulation to distal parts of the body?

Circulation: There are no studies that prove that any nutrient or food can increase circulation in the blood stream. Beware of any promotional material that makes these claims. There are plenty of foods (collectively eaten as a 'diet') that can result long-term in blockages to the arteries. Reversing this type of unhealthy diet will prevent progression of these blockages but not necessarily reverse the blockag. ...Read more
