2.  Varicose veins are also very much contributory to poor blood circulation.  I know folks in my community who are suffering with this problem and therefore visit the doctors very often for relief.  Varicose veins happen when the elasticity of the walls of the veins breaks down. In other words, they lose their elasticity.  This problem can get more severe due to lack of exercise, junk food and aging.
