8 Warning signs of poor blood circulation that should never be ignored.

Blood circulation is very important because your body organs need oxygenated blood for their daily activities. Damaged valve or blood vessels and vascular disease can affect blood circulation thereby reducing blood flow. Fatty buildup or plaque around blood vessels can also lead to poor blood circulation.

3.Varicose veins

When this happens, visible swellings will be found on some areas of your skin. The swellings could either be green, blue or purple.

4. Erectile dysfunction
