What Healthy Circulation Means
Living a healthy life starts from the inside. Maintaining a healthy circulatory system is a key component to your total health and wellbeing. Your heart, brain, muscles, skin, eye health—even exercise performance—all depend on a healthy circulation system for support. But as you age your blood vessels may become less flexible and able to expand when needed to keep circulation running smoothly.
Your circulatory system is comprised of your heart, blood, and all your blood vessels, including arteries, arterioles, veins, venules and capillaries.
Key Factors to Healthy Circulation
- The health of the blood vessels, in particular the inner lining of the vessel that comes into contact with the blood, known as the endothelium.
- The compound nitric oxide (NO), which is naturally produced by the body. NO helps to maintain a healthy environment within the blood vessel by helping to support the smooth, easy flow of blood to all parts of your body.
One of the many things that NO does is trigger the relaxation of the vessel in response to changes in blood flow. Cocoa flavanols work with your body to maintain healthy levels of NO, and by doing this, work within your body to help maintain the flow of oxygen and nutrients to your organs and tissues.† When oxygen and nutrients can make their way to your cells, your body may be nourished, helping you perform at your best.
