My whole life i have eaten fast food and drank a lot of carbonated soda. I have been trying to improve my circulation through eating nothing but health foods and water...

my circulation is poor and i thrive to keep my hands and feet warm.

it seems that when i drink anything with caffeine my circulation decreases, and i get cold hands/and or feet.

I have read a lot about circulation and they say stay away from caffeine all together..

I also read a lot about tea and they talk about how beneficial tea is for you and that it improves circulation...

Whats confusing to me is the contradiction with tea and caffeine with the circulation.


So after reading more and thinking about the technicalities of things (which is seems everything in life or with the human body is very technical, as far as your history, race, what you eat as a child, activities , you know things your normal doctors never asks about) I have noticed and came to a conclusion of maybe the tea with caffeine is only beneficial for people that are already in good circulation. Maybe the people with very poor circulation shouldn't consume caffeine at all, and wait until the circulation drastically improves before considering drinking tea with caffeine.

Any information or input would be greatly appreciated..

Thanks

Caffeine is a vasoconstrictor, it constricts the blood vessels and makes the heart work harder to pump the blood into already narrowed blood vessels. Thus the cool extremeties.

Interesting. I'm trying to improve my circulation too. I've got Diabetes. What about green tea?? I know that tea has much MUCH less caffeine than coffee. I really need to "take the bull by the horns" and concentrate on my circulation problems. It really sucks having to juggle so many things at once. I'm my own worst enemy in that I'm stubborn and prone to being negative at the same time.

My problem is that I have to sit a LOT for long periods of time at work where it's not "professional" to get up and walk around. Plus, I have to sit at the computer waiting for, pursuing, and "kissing up" to leads. The little obvious solutions aren't cutting it. Very complicated...life just sucks sometimes.

green tea is good stuff. if ya sittin' a lot, paddle those feet point the toes and tap. it helps a lot. give the thighs a wobble as well.
