What Causes Poor Circulation?
Poor leg circulation, or peripheral artery disease (PAD), occurs as arteries narrow and reduce blood flow to limbs of your body. As a result, your blood cannot keep up with the demands of your body and can cause pain (usually in the legs). Bad circulation is a result of fatty deposits accumulating in the arteries (atherosclerosis), which can also reduce blood flow to the brain and other vital organs. Smoking, poor diet, and lack of exercise are common causes of poor circulation.
Poor circulation symptoms include leg pain while walking, cramping in arms or legs after activity, cold feet, calf pain, leg numbness or weakness, hair loss or slow hair growth on legs, sores on feet or legs that won't heal, slow toenail growth, and erectile dysfunction in men.

[YEA] I found this site looking for help for my husbands high blood pressure. I am so glad that I did! His blood pressure has dropped 40 pts. in 5 days by using Apple Cider Vinegar remedy on this site. He drinks 2 tbsp. in 8 oz. of water 2 times a day before meals.
I was drinking it with him as well as he didn't enjoy the taste and I wanted to share in his misery..lol
I have suffered from cold hands and feet and a cold backside for many years. I was diagnosed with Hypothyroid over 10 years ago. Since drinking the ACV my feet and backside are burning hot! I can't remember the last time I had warm feet or a warm bum...My face even has a warm rosy glow!! This is amazing! Not only has this helped my circulation come back but I am finding that my fibromyalgia aches are going away. I am so excited! It is a double miracle. I am so glad I decided to "suffer" with him in drinking this nature's cure!! Thank you for your website. I wonder how many lives are being saved by this wonderful information. God bless you.
