Cold Hands, Warm Heart? Circulation Science Explained

We’ve all heard the phrase, ‘cold hands, warm heart’? Whether it’s true or not is beside the point, it’s your lower extremities that you need to be most concerned about. Getting cold feet? Please don’t and read on. Have you noticed that having cold feet is more prevalent when you’re sitting for extended periods, when you’re stressed or when you’ve experienced a surprise shock of some kind, even in warmer weather? Constantly having cold hands and feet, despite the weather, could be a soft marker for lacklustre circulation. CellNutrition provides the answers with some science behind healthier and improved circulation and why it’s so important to our wellbeing. 

Whether your hands are cold or not, let’s put some heat on the heart. This is where circulation begins. It’s a process by which the heart muscle pumps blood around your body. And like most things in the Universe, circulation tends to happen in a clockwise direction. But, because most people’s heart 
is in the upper left quadrant of their bodies, it’s easier to circulate blood to the upper extremities. Circulation implies a circle. Arteries carry blood away from the heart and veins carry blood back to the heart. And, because you don’t have a heart in your feet, circulation and the pumping of the blood back up to the heart takes a little extra effort and exercise. When it’s chilly or when you’re in panic / stress mode, the body cleverly keeps your blood closest to the internal organs in case of emergency - and these organs are almost all located above your hip bones, resulting in cold feet. 

Circulation is a bloody affair. Let’s break it down to a cellular level. Although all humans are different - even identical twins have different fingerprints - we do have one thing in common. Cells. The four basic human cells including skin cells, nerve cells, muscle cells and connective tissue cells all work together to create organs and muscles which in turn create the body. These cells are in a constant process of communication and regeneration. The mass of cells you lose each year through normal cellular death is close to your own body weight. Your body needs the correct fundamental bricks to rebuild them desirably.  

Healthy cells are kept that way by healthy blood which carries nutrients, oxygen, water, chemical messengers such as hormones and immune boosting fighters to each cell and is also responsible for carrying waste products such as carbon dioxide away. As such, blood is also considered a connective tissue. So
, while the blood in arteries is bright red with all the oxygen and nutrients, the blood in your veins is darker with toxins as it makes its way through cleansing organs such as the kidneys, liver, bladder and lungs. Proper circulation is vital to your health. 

For complete nourishment our cells require the correct balance of 78 minerals and trace elements as well as the essential fatty acids to be effective. It’s the blood that carries them there and the heart, along with moderate exercise that makes it happen. Better circulation equals an optimal supply of nutrients, oxygen and disposal of metabolic wastes.
