A Juice for Stronger Blood Circulation

In Chinese medicine, any excess or deficiency can cause imbalance within the body which in turn can block your qi (energy), cause poor blood circulation or organ disharmony.

Blood filled with toxins is more likely to become stagnant thus keeping the spleen and pancreas function strong helps blood formation as well as improves the circulation of qi energy.

In cases of stagnant blood, proper eating habits and preparation of simple food is important. Using spices such as ginger can help to promote circulation and alleviate menstrual discomfort.

Incorporating carrots can assist with dispelling toxins, moving energy and relieving menstrual pain. Beets purify blood, support qi circulation and promote menstruation. While bell peppers support blood circulation.

Eating a balanced diet with simple combinations of food, combined with exercise, sunshine and emotional balance will go along way in supporting blood and qi.
