According to surveys, at some point in their lives, almost half of the world's inhabitants begin to think about strengthening the blood vessels. Still, the state of the body and the absence or presence of certain health problems in adulthood depend on the blood supply and gas exchange provided by the arteries, veins and capillaries. There are many ways to strengthen blood vessels - both through exercise and through proper nutrition.
Strengthening blood vessels - if, moreover, doing this from a young age - will help to avoid many diseases, especially some of those that are considered leaders in the modern world in terms of the number of selected human lives: heart attack, stroke, etc. It should also be said that the risk of developing certain senile ailments, primarily dementia, is associated with the state of the vascular system.
Caring for blood vessels is not too complex a complex of measures. Everyone is able, if desired, to allocate time and energy for such an important task. It is better to undertake this comprehensively - both the exercises you need to perform, and the nutrition to correct, and certain procedures to be done periodically.
Some of the symptoms of existing vascular problems will be excessive fatigue during the day, intermittent coldness in the extremities, dizziness when trying to suddenly change body position, etc.
Physical activity is one of the surest ways to strengthen blood vessels (especially small ones). In order to keep the vessels in good shape, it is necessary to be sufficiently mobile during wakefulness. It is incredibly difficult for people who are forced to engage in sedentary work. However, even they can solve such a problem.
For example, during working hours, they can do so-called hidden gymnastics. To do this, it is enough to alternately strain and relax various muscle groups located on the abdomen, buttocks, thighs, in the shoulder girdle, etc. It is worth taking such activities as a rule, and soon they will reach automatism.
In addition, you should periodically get up from the workplace and walk around the room. So that such "mini-walks" do not pass "in vain", you can combine them with something necessary for work (for example, read the documentation that the person is currently engaged in, etc.). Therefore, you don't even have to carve out a special time for these exercises.
At leisure, it is not a sin to go to the gym for a couple of hours three times a week instead of sitting in front of the TV or computer. However, if there is no opportunity to engage in physical education and on simulators in this way, you can try other options for physical activity. Dancing, cycling, jogging, swimming or water aerobics - anyone can find something to their liking.
A good night's sleep is also necessary to maintain the normal state of blood vessels. 7-9 hours may be enough.
By the way, various water procedures are considered an excellent way to strengthen blood vessels. They keep the circulatory system in good shape. This also includes various hardening options.
In the latter, the system and a reasonable approach are important. So, a beginner should not immediately throw himself into an ice hole or arrange douches with ice in the cold. You can start with a regular contrast shower - just alternately switch the water from hot to cold. Daily procedures of this kind allow the walls of the vessels to maintain elasticity and strength.
This is facilitated by regular visits to the bath. It is not necessary to use a Russian or Finnish steam room - especially since they have a number of contraindications. It is worth consulting with your doctor and choosing the option of the bath that corresponds to the state of health.
Those who want to keep blood vessels in excellent condition cannot do without adjusting the diet.As you know, one of the main enemies in such an undertaking is cholesterol, or rather, low-density lipoproteins, of which it is included. They create the very same fatty plaques on the inner walls of blood vessels, which reduce their patency, make them more fragile and lead to serious cardiovascular ailments.
In order for such a gloomy scenario not to come true, one must lean on plant foods (in which there is no cholesterol by definition), and avoid fatty foods. The proteins necessary for the body should be looked for in lean meat (preferably poultry) and fish, and not in sausages and smoked meats.
Certain foods, including garlic, raisins, prunes, nuts, dried apricots, contribute to strengthening the walls of blood vessels and cleansing them of lipid plaques. Also, it will not be superfluous to use a reasonable intake of vitamins C, K, P and E. However, complexes containing these nutrients should not be prescribed for yourself - it is better to consult a doctor.
