Decreased circulation to the arms, hands, legs, or feet can be caused by atherosclerotic plaque.
You can improve that quite easily without making a lot of changes.
In the following study participants with peripheral artery disease were asked to add half a cup of cooked legumes(either beans or lentils) to their diet, every day, for 8 weeks (Zahradka P, et al. 2013).
This is what happened.
Total cholesterol decreased by 5% and LDL cholesterol (the so called bad cholesterol) decreased by 8.7%
The ankle-brachial index increased by 5.5%.
Acylcarnitine levels were also altered indicating improvements in skeletal muscle metabolism due to increased delivery of blood to the capillaries in the tissue.
I think that’s amazing, just half a cup of beans a day will accomplish that.
What we eat really makes a big difference.
This was only one example of a small change.
