I dont know about you but this year Im really feeling the cold. You know how your Grandpa or even perhaps your mom would remark how cold it is now the winters set in well this year Im finding myself doing that. I guess as we all get older we feel the cold that bit more, but this year really does seem especially cold to me. Truth is, of course, that feeling the cold can be down to other things than simply low temperatures, so are there any health supplements to help me to warm up a bit?

Why we might suddenly feel the cold.

Don’t let the cold get to you this winter.

If, like me, in previous years a bit of cold weather never bothered you but this year you really are feeling the chill, it could actually be due to a medical condition. Feeling cold, especially in the hands and feet can be a sign of trouble with your thyroid, high blood pressure, anemia, Raynauds disease, lupus, diabetes and rheumatoid arthritis to name but some. Needless to say, these can become quite serious issues, so if you are concerned about feeling the cold this year it might be a good idea to get yourself checked out by your physician. However, for most people the underlying reason for suddenly feeling the cold is one of poor circulation. If youre a smoker, heavy drinker or are overweight/obese then you must surely understand already what is required to help out your circulation here. Sometimes poor circulation just goes hand in hand with the ageing process, so what are the health and vitamin supplements to help battle the cold this winter?

Fighting the cold with supplements.

One health supplement guaranteed to help your blood circulation and thereby help to keep you feeling warm this winter is an omega-3 fatty acid supplement like EPA and DHA. These will stimulate your blood flow, making sure that all of your body tissue is receiving fully oxygenated blood to work at maximum efficiency keeping you warm. This is also recommended for sufferers of Raynauds disease and rheumatoid arthritis. Vitamins and minerals essential for good circulation are vitamins B, C and E along with the minerals Calcium, Potassium and Magnesium. Moving into food/health supplements both garlic and Ginkgo biloba are traditional treatments for poor circulation.
