Natural vasodilators support a healthy circulatory system

16 April, 2012

Keeping the circulatory system running smoothly is an important aspect to continuing health. Every part of the body benefits from the proper circulation of blood. Your blood performs vital tasks for the body, such as bringing oxygen and nutrients to organs and muscles, removing carbon dioxide and waste, and helping to fight infection. Adding vasodilators to your health maintenance routine helps keep blood vessels open and flowing—allowing your blood to do its many jobs.

Key elements to circulation health include:

  • A healthy heart
  • Normal blood pressure
  • Uncongested blood vessels, which allow blood to flow freely to its many destinations, large and small, in the body

The largest blood vessels, which connect the heart to other major organs such as the brain and lungs, will often not signal trouble until late in the game because it takes time for them to become blocked by sticky plaque. But damage to smaller blood vessels, serving the body’s extremities, is just as worrisome.

What can you do to keep your circulatory system in good shape? Similar to the plan for attaining and maintaining a healthy blood pressure, there are changes you can make in your daily routine to prevent your circulatory system from having to work too hard:

  • Changing eating habits, which can aid in achieving a healthier weight, warding off type 2 diabetes and lowering cholesterol
  • Increasing exercise, especially “cardio,” which trains the heart to work more effectively
  • Cutting out smoking

Adding vasodilators to your daily self-care can also offer a boost to your circulatory system. But what are vasodilators? They are substances which work to dilate, or expand, blood vessels. This allows blood to flow more easily and keeps the smallest blood vessels clear.  Many types of plants have this dilative effect, including some of the polyphenols we’ve already discussed in depth, such as oleopein in olive leaves and the oligomeric proanthocyanidins (OPCs) in grape seed extract.

Galilee Nutritionals Circulation Support combines oleopein and OPCs carefully calibrated to safely allow the blood vessels to dilate and allow for proper blood flow. Take care of your circulatory system and you’re taking care of your whole body!
