The Circulation Booster is a product allegedly designed for helping those with poor circulation. It works by using a stimulus under the foot to get the muscles to contract. The purpose being that the contraction of the muscles works on what is called the venous return pump and this helps pump blood back to the heart. A number of studies have shown that it does appear to help the venous return and venous circulation. A number of testimonials have also touted its benefits.
However, the advertising standards authorities in two countries have forced the company to change its advertising based on the claims that the company had been making. None of the research on the Circulation Booster has been shown to actually improve the arterial circulation. The arterial circulation is the amount of blood that is delivered to the foot. This has not been shown to improve and is what most experts consider to be of concern when the term “poor circulation” is used.
There is no doubt that the Circulation Booster does help the pain in the foot and leg in some people with different problems that are not necessarily due to poor arterial circulation. It cannot work by improving the arterial circulation and going for a walk around the block will do more for the arterial circulation and general health and is a lot cheaper than buying the product. Until proper controlled trials show otherwise, the Circulation Booster is not recommended.
