Part 3 will explain how low immune system and poor circulation overlap. If your mornings are tired, cold and sluggish you may have more than just morning hypotension.
Frequent colds? Low blood pressure?
Hypotension is invariably related to “slower” circulation and therefore to colder body temperature. It is a common knowledge that people with poor ciruclation tend to get colder easier and are more prone to cold hands and feet. But this chilling effect of low numbers has a larger effect than just making you feel cold. It also affects the immune system. To find out about signs of weak immune system refer to the articles below:

Low blood pressure symptoms tie in to weak immune system
Did you know that common cold virus replicate faster in colder temperatures? Research shows that colder noses are especially good hosts for rhinoviruses. So if your mornings feel a little “sickish” and you are one of those unfortunate ones with recurrent colds maybe instead of spending endless money on Dristan or Sudafed look into ways to improve poor circulation. This is a better, more natural, and more permanent solution.
Hypotension has far-reaching effect. These include poor immune system as well as increased risk for dementia. But there are ways to permanently improve circulation. You will find them all in my recent book Revived!

Common symptoms of low blood pressure
Poor circulation in the morning, besides giving you a runny nose, may also bring on tiredness, light-headedness, dullness, and feebleness. With more pronounced hypotension confusion and nausea can be expected. It should be of no surprise that many frail individuals lack appetite in the morning and skip breakfast.
