So, how does blood circulation work?

The blood circulatory system, also known as the cardiovascular system consists the heart and all the blood vessels that run throughout the entire body. Arteries carry blood away from the heart and your veins transport it back. There are two circulatory systems that comprise of the cardiovascular system. The systemic and pulmonary systems. Systemic circulation basically transports oxygen and nutrient rich blood through our arteries to our organs, tissues (including muscles), and our cells. When it releases the vital substances to our body it takes on waste substances like carbon dioxide and lactic acid. Now that the blood is low in oxygen it is transported back to the heart. Pulmonary circulation occurs when we breathe in oxygen and it enters our bloodstream. So this is how our body works, day in and day out. The heart acts as a pump, transporting oxygenated blood to our organs, then carrying de-oxygenated blood back to our heart.

Swelling, inflammation and clotting are three of the major culprits when it comes to poor circulation, but poor circulation also increases the risk of chronic inflammation. Finding ways to decrease systemic inflammation, reduce swelling, and improve blood flow around the body are vital to maintaining excellent health throughout life. To understand how circulation affects inflammation, we first need to have a good grasp of what inflammation is and how it arises.
