3 tips to improve circulation in your legs 

Poor blood circulation in the legs can manifest in a variety of symptoms. Some of these symptoms include swelling, itchiness, heaviness, skin discoloration, loss of feeling, pins and needles, and more. 

Fortunately, there are methods that can be implemented to improve the blood circulation in your legs, so you don’t have to constantly suffer the effects of poor circulation. To learn more about how your blood circulation in your legs can get better, keep reading below. 

How can the blood circulation in your legs get better? 

  • Eat a cholesterol-conscious diet — One of the ways you can improve the blood flow in your legs is to eat a diet low in cholesterol. This can help reduce the amount of plaque that builds up in your blood vessels, which makes it harder for blood to flow through efficiently. 
  • Consult with a specialist — Consulting with a vein and vascular specialist is a great way to improve blood flow. Specialists can use minimally invasive procedures to reroute blood flow through functional veins for better circulation. 
  • Take a prescription blood thinner — A doctor may prescribe you blood thinners to help promote easier blood flow through your blood vessels. Sometimes blood flow can be inhibited by thicker blood.
