Chinese Herbs For Blood Circulation

Updated: Jan 25

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, about 70 percent of Americans over 65 recorded blood circulation conditions, such as high blood pressure or hypertension.

When the blood vessels store plaques, these create blockages within the vessels that feed blood to the heart and brain. Fortunately, herbs can help promote blood circulation and remove blood stasis. Finding "Alteratives" is the best way to increase blood flow because this group of herbs restore elimination and are known as blood purifiers. When used over time, they help the body's vitality by improving nutrition and eliminating waste through the lymphatic and digestive systems.

Here we have three popular Chinese herbs that benefit blood circulation:

  • Asian ginseng – Panax ginseng: Ginseng is a warming and stimulating herb for the elderly, which serves as an immunomodulant, hypoglycemic, and antioxidant. These characteristics make ginseng great for regulating blood sugar and cholesterol and decreasing the risk of blood clots.

  • Ginkgo - Ginkgo biloba: Ginkgo is a drying and decongestant herb that activates the circulatory system. It improves cerebral blood flow, protecting against age-related imbalances. It also contains antioxidants and flavonoids, which help improve blood circulation.

  • Hawthorn Berries - Crataegus monogyna: The Hawthorn berries are considered the best for the cardiovascular system. These have adaptogen and antioxidant properties that protect the heart and play a role in treating vessels. The National Library of Medicine highlights that Hawthorn is an essential edible plant of the Rosaceae family. The "Polyphenolic Composition of Crataegus monogyna" article describes scientific evidence regarding the advantages of the hawthorn fruit, which holds powerful antioxidant and free radical scavenging properties.

This year, we've introduced a new herbal tea designed to enhance blood circulation and lower the risk of cardiovascular disease "Heart-Tea." It's a delightful blend of herbs such as Hibiscus, Hawthorn berries, Cinnamon, Ashwagandha, and Goji Berries.

If you have an imbalance related to your blood, drinking a cup of this blend daily can be helpful. It is suggested to have 1-3 cups of heart tea daily, with a squeeze of lemon if you prefer. You can have it cold or hot, depending on your preference!
