Vegetables That Increase Blood Circulation

by Sharoya
(Brooklyn, NY)

Can you tell me what vegetables and/or fruits will help increase blood circulation?

The first vegetable that comes to mind is burdock root. It's a long, skinny, light brown root that you can find in Whole Foods in the specialty vegetable section, and I love it. It has an earthy flavor, and I love cooking it with sesame oil and soy sauce, as a kinpira.

You should also load up on watermelon, oranges, garlic, nuts, and pumpkin seeds.

Watermelon is full of lycopene, which helps keep the arteries from filling with plaque and clogging.

Oranges are high in vitamin C and strengthen capillary walls, making it easier for blood to flow through your body.

Garlic also helps reduce (and sometimes reverse) plaque in the arteries.

Pumpkin seeds are filled with vitamin E, which makes blood less sticky, preventing clots.

And finally, nuts have vitamin B3, which helps increase circulation as well.
