Circulation Q & A

What is the circulation system?

The circulation system is the vital network of blood vessels and the heart that supply nutrient- and oxygen-rich blood throughout your body, and return the blood back to the lungs and then the heart for recirculation. The heart works to pump the blood all over your body. Arteries carry the blood away from the heart while veins carry it back.

Having proper circulation helps keep you healthy. If you have poor circulation, you'll experience many symptoms. Not to mention, this is often an indication of an underlying health problem.
