At present, many middle-aged and elderly people have a condition of blood stasis. With the continuous increase of age, the blood flow of the middle-aged and elderly people is far worse than before, and even the operation is not smooth. Poor blood flow can easily lead to blood stasis. Although blood stasis itself is not a disease state, if you do not pay attention to conditioning, it is prone to various blood stasis syndromes.
Traditional Chinese medicine believes that qi can move blood, and qi can promote the operation of blood. Once there is blood stasis in the body, the blood gathers together and blocks the arteries, and even if there is enough qi, it cannot be pushed, and the blood will stagnate here, then the following situations will occur

How can we improve the condition of blood stasis?
Salvia is a medicine for promoting blood circulation and removing blood stasis recognized by physicians in the past dynasties, and it is also a commonly used medicine for clinical prevention and treatment of cardiovascular and cerebrovascular diseases.
Traditional Chinese medicine believes that Danshen is slightly bitter and cold in nature, and can enter the liver and heart meridians, and has the effects of promoting blood circulation and removing blood stasis, clearing the meridians and relieving pain, clearing the heart and eliminating vexation, cooling blood and eliminating carbuncle.
At the same time, modern research has shown that Salvia miltiorrhiza also improves peripheral circulation and microcirculation, and has the functions of lowering blood lipids, lowering blood pressure, anti-cardiac hypertrophy, anti-hypoxia, anti-thrombosis, and anti-oxidation. In addition, it can also protect the vascular endothelium, protect the liver, and protect the brain.
Finally, salvia can also help sleep, and salvia can enter the heart meridian, which has the effect of clearing the heart and cooling blood, eliminating vexation, and can improve the symptoms of insomnia due to irritability. Take 5 tablets every day before going to bed, blood vessels are also open and sleep is better.
But when taking it, you should also pay attention to the following points
1. Eat less spicy food, Greasy and cold food, so as not to reduce the efficacy of Salvia
2. Do not eat with Veratrum, which is bitter and cold in taste and is toxic.
