WHAT TO TAKE ‘The heat from peppers and ginger are both good additions to your diet in teas, soups and smoothies,’ says Rick. ‘Then maybe rev things up with a supplement featuring herbs linked with vein and circulation health, like diosmin, horse chestnut, ginger or gotu kola.’ TRY Diosmin
Plus, £26 for 60 capsules, Victoria Health.
WHAT TO DO Try rubbing a cream or oil featuring naturally warming herbs, such as chillies or ginger, into hands and feet to up circulation. TRY Capsicum
& Ginger Warming Cream, £9 for 100ml, Victoria Health.
