Cardiovascular System

Arteries, veins, the heart, capillaries, and blood are the central components of the cardiovascular system. “Cardio” refers to the heart, and “vascular” refers to blood vessels. To get a general idea of how the cardiovascular system functions, let’s use an analogy. Blood vessels in the body are like highways, spanning great distances between different organs and tissues, traveling from the tips of your toes to the top of your head. Arteries and veins are special types of blood vessels that act like one-way roads: arteries carry oxygen-rich blood away from the heart, and veins bring deoxygenated blood back to the heart. Blood is like a constant stream of delivery trucks, bringing nutrients toward and carrying waste away from tissues. Healthy eating habits, routine exercise, and educated essential oil use are habits that can support the health and function of your cardiovascular system.
