As we age our circulation slows down which can accelerate aging. When our cells are deprived of vital nutrition, they get damaged at a faster rate by free radicals. Over time, our body system starts breaking down. The heart compensates by working harder to pump blood because your body isn’t getting enough oxygen due to declining circulation.

Blood carries oxygen and micronutrients to every cell in the body. Blood also carries away waste from our cells. If blood flow is restricted, waste can accumulate in the cells and cause diseases.

A diet high in processed foods including refined sugars in carbs and inflammatory oils, smoking, and prolonged sitting are the main culprit behind poor circulation. When blood sugar rises it damages the micro vessels and decreases the body’s ability to produce nitric oxide. narrowing of the arteries and reduced blood flow This includes atherosclerosis plaque buildup and blood vessels constriction, autoimmune, and neuropathy. These habits interfere with blood flow and increase the risks of stroke heart attack and cardiovascular disease.

Conversely, improved blood flow leads to improved health. The benefits include more energy, better sleep, stable blood pressure, a better libido, better cognition, more focus, radiant skin, increased exercise performance, boosted metabolism, improved detoxification, better digestion, reduced risk for chronic disease, and reverse premature aging.

Hijama releases nitric oxide. Nitric oxide is a vasodilator. It is a compound that relaxes and widens our arteries and veins. The endothelial cells that line the blood vessels produce nitric oxide Enzymes called nitric oxide synthase. The suction before and after the incision gathers and then clears cellular waste and back up toxins in the capillaries. Approximately, 7% of the body’s blood is in the capillaries which continuously exchange substances with the liquid outside these blood vessels, called interstitial fluid.
