Clean blood is one of the keys to maintaining overall health. The circulatory system uses the blood to give the body all of the nutrients and hormones it needs. It also takes away the waste produced by the body’s everyday operations. If the blood becomes too thick and isn’t able to dispose of toxins introduced through unhealthy food, environmental factors, stress, and bodily waste, conditions like hypertension, high cholesterol, and heart disease can develop. It can also compromise the health of other systems in the body. Exercise and avoiding smoking can greatly benefit your cardiovascular function, but nutrition plays the most important role. Making sure you give your blood enough of the nutrients it needs like omega-3, unsaturated fats, fiber, and others from whole food or supplementation can purify the blood and streamline your body’s delivery system.
