Always Feel Cold? This Might Be Why

When it is 10-below outside, everyone is going to feel the chill. Yet, some people are still cold to the touch no matter what the temperature is. If that sounds familiar, it could be a sign that something else is going on in your body. 


If your thyroid is underactive, it will struggle to produce enough hormones. This then results in your body’s metabolic functions not operating properly, leaving you feeling cold. But don’t worry, if that is the case, a daily supplement will sort you out.

Poor Circulation

Ever heard the saying, “cold hands, warm heart”? It may be a cute way for those with icy extremities to dismiss the chill, but cold hands can be a symptom of poor blood circulation. It’s best to have a doctor check whether your arteries are functioning optimally and they can advise on the best way forward. 


Another blood-related reason for being constantly cold is anemia. Caused by a lack of iron, the condition can result in fewer red blood cells or ones that cannot sufficiently transport oxygen from your lungs to the rest of your body. Stock up on iron-rich foods like leafy greens, lentils, and red meat.
