Circulation definitely slows down as we age and anti-oxidants like vitamin A, and E, or fish oils, and niacin have an affinity for keeping arteries healthy and reducing inflammation.  Herbs which have blood circulating properties are hawthorne which is a tonic and astragalus which is an adaptogen.  Caution must be exercised if there are actual arterial blockages (which would be diagnosed by your doctor); if this is the case, all medications, if there are any, must be carefully reviewed especially when taking anything else with the meds.  Sometimes, less than ideal circulation is simply a case of sluggish blood or lymph circulation due to lack of activity and an unhealthy highly processed diet.
