Blood Circulation in Flight

Blood circulation in flight

Avoiding circulation problems on long airplane flights.

Can StemFlo® help travelers address or overcome some of the negative physical problems associated with long airplane flights?

By Christian Drapeau, MSc

While I will cite information to answer this question in the scientific literature, I can certainly answer it by virtue of personal experience. I travel a lot, often on long airplane flights. My answer to the question is simple: Yes! StemFlo® can greatly assist travelers who are on long flights.

Blood Circulation in Flight

A study performed by the World Health Organization determined that the stagnation of the blood in the legs during long flights (4 hours and more) can double the risk of forming blood clots in the legs.

Nonetheless, this risk remains relatively low, so there is nothing for most people to worry about. But the stagnation of the blood can definitely create discomforts, a sensation of heaviness in the legs and swelling in the lower legs and feet.

It is highly recommended that travelers on long flights stand up a few times and stretch their legs or even take a walk around the cabin. StemFlo can be a great companion on such flights.

What happens when one remains sitting for a long period in a position with little freedom to move is that pressure is applied to one area of the body without the motion that helps move the blood.

On long flights this is compounded with dehydration caused by the reduction in pressure at high altitude. The consequent stagnation and heat lead to the formation of “fibrin”, which thickens the blood. Although there is little risk of developing an actual blood clot – though the risk exists – the poor blood circulation leads to poor venous return that eventually results in some level of swelling and a sensation of discomfort.

In studies, scientists have shown that simply consuming enzymes that have the ability to digest fibrin – like the Fibrinerase™ present in StemFlo – can provide much greater comfort during long flights because these enzymes give the blood greater fluidity.

StemFlo has been clinically shown to do this.

It is also known that flying at high altitude increases our exposure to radiation and, as a result, to free radicals. It is, therefore, important to take extra antioxidants before and after (and during those long international ones). Of course, StemFlo contains some of the strongest natural antioxidants available anywhere, so you know exactly where to get your antioxidants!

When you plan to travel, make sure you take StemFlo with you. I usually take 3-6 capsules of StemFlo before a flight and carry along some extra capsules for long flights. After landing, I take a couple more. Doing this really makes a big difference. Take StemFlo and you too can fly in comfort.
