So, Circulation can be affected by a lot of different conditions.

Problems like:
  • Arteriosclerosis: this deadly condition blocks the arteries. It can cause heart attack or stroke.
  • High blood pressure: also known as hypertension, it can lead to heart attack, stroke, or kidney failure.

4. Constipation. When there is less blood flowing through your body, everything slows down.
