Today I’m going to list what I think are the 10 best, clinically proven herbs for supporting healthy blood flow circulation to your brain, organs, muscles, and “extremities” such as hands, feet, and penis for guys.
Just remember that the older we get, the worst the circulation.
And poor blood flow means fewer youthful hormones, oxygen, enzymes, and nutrients being delivered throughout your body – which means, faster aging, and slower healing.
In addition to these clinically researched herbs, there are also specific vitamins, minerals, and amino acids that also help promote healthy blood flow.
Unlike a good diet or exercise plan, which unfortunately most people have a hard time sticking to.
The biggest problem with most of us is – the harder it is, the less likely we are going to do it long-term. As well, the easier something is, the most likely we’ll do it long-term and thus, get results.
So, let’s get started on the 10 best scientifically proven herbs, and I’m going to give a quick summary of each herb.
Horse Chestnut Extract
Horse chestnut contains bioactive compounds called escin. Studies have shown that escin has veno-protective properties and can combat water retention, and support healthy inflammation and blood flow.
Veno-protective means it’s beneficial for the veins or venous system in the body. Horse chestnut is especially important for the extremities – such as hands, feet, and genitals.
Make sure you only get the extract version at 20% concentration.
Ginkgo Biloba Extract
The Ginkgo biloba tree is essentially unchanged for 200 million years and has been used to promote healthy blood flow, primarily to the brain. It’s been used to support memory & cognitive health for centuries.
Make sure to get a Non-GMO version standardized at 24% extract.
Beetroot is high in nitrates, which can be converted into nitric oxide. The vasodilation effect of nitric oxide supports healthy blood flow — and thus oxygen and nutrient delivery — to muscles, heart, arteries, and extremities.
As a reminder, improving nitric oxide is also how drugs like Viagra and Cialis work for improving blood flow for erections in men, as well as supporting healthy blood pressure.
Make sure you get a 10:1 extract
Pine Bark Extract Pycnogenol®
French maritime pine bark extract helps inhibit inflammatory factors to help promote circulatory and vascular health, fights oxidative stress, and promotes healthy longevity – especially to the veins and arteries.
Make sure you get the 65% procyanidins; 97% Dehydroabietic Acid extract
Cocoa Flavanols Extract
Cocoa flavanol supplements are, you guessed it, made from the ancient super-food cocoa. Yes, the same ingredient in your favorite DARK chocolate, just in a healthier, more concentrated form.
The flavanols specifically found in cocoa (which are distinct from the cocoa plant) have been shown in over 20 studies, to promote better circulation and support healthy cardiovascular function, brain performance, and memory.
White Willow Extract
Do you know how Aspirin was first discovered? … It was in nature from the White Willow Extract, which is the original (or natural form of) aspirin.
It contains a natural ingredient called “salicin” that’s similar to aspirin. Used in small dosages, it helps promote healthy circulation and inflammatory response.
Make sure to get 25% Salicin extract
Ginger has many health benefits and helps support healthy:
- arterial & vascular function*
- blood clotting
- contractile strength of the heart – which means a stronger heart
- ATP production in the heart – which means more energy
Make sure to only use the standardized 15% extract form
Grape Seed Extract
The dark pigment of grapes and berries has important flavonoids. However, grape seed extract is a very concentrated form that supports cardiovascular and brain health. It also acts as a potent free-radical scavenger.
Make sure to use the most potent extra form at 95% procyanidolic oligomers
This is a small evergreen shrub that can help support healthy inflammation & treat poor blood flow + circulation. *
An analysis of 20 studies found that a supplement that contained butcher’s broom significantly reduced pain, cramps, and swelling because it can help veins contract, allowing blood to return to the heart, better and faster.
This puts significantly LESS stress and pressure on the heart.
This is technically an enzyme, but it’s extremely important because it helps fight Fibrin Buildup
Fibrin forms a fibrous mesh that can impede healthy blood flow (not what you want). This decreased blood flow can lead to feelings of fatigue, including your muscles (such as heart and skeletal).
This is especially important if you’re over the age of 35 for men and 40 for women because as we age, Fibrin can increase and cause blood clots… which can lead to a heart attack or stroke.
Nattokinase also acts as a natural blood thinner. It’s good for healthy blood pressure and blood flow.
Make sure you get the NSK-SD version of Nattokinase, which is patented and the only form backed by human clinical studies.
So, there you have it – the 10 best herbs that are backed by clinical studies.
Of course, I’m not telling you to go out and buy each of these herbs individually. It’s too much work. It’s also too expensive and extremely inconvenient.
Let’s be honest, nobody wants to take 10 or more pills every day, this includes me who is very disciplined.
Luckily, there’s a product called Blood Flow Optimizer that already contains all of these herbal extracts, at the correct dosages and maximum effective extract percentages.
Plus, Blood Flow Optimizer also contains other ingredients such as:
- Vitamin D3
- Vitamin E
- Vitamin K2-7 (MK7)
- And 3 different forms of L Carnitine
It’s all in ONE, convenient pill that my family and I have been using for over 18+ years.
Best of all, It comes with a one-year guarantee because it has such a long proven track record.
Give Blood Flow Optimizer a try if you want healthy blood flow. And let me know how it works for you.
