What can I do to improve circulation in my feet?

The best way to improve your circulation is simply to commit to making some good old-fashioned healthy lifestyle choices. Simply eating right and getting regular, daily exercise can have a profound effect on your health outcomes, including circulation in your legs and feet. Exercise gets your blood pumping and causes smaller blood vessels to expand, helping to compensate for larger arteries that may be clogged.

Tobacco and alcohol use inhibits healthy blood flow. We strongly recommend you quit smoking, and drink only in moderation.

One of the leading causes of poor circulation in America today is diabetes. Checking your glucose regularly and keeping sugar at a normal level will help you prevent or slow progression of the condition’s circulatory and nerve-damaging effects.
