How Yoga Inversions And Yoga Headstand Benefit The Body
The circulatory system is comprised of the heart and lungs, which feeds the body oxygen, and removes waste products from the cells. Arteries pump freshly oxygenated blood from the lungs outward, and the veins return blood to the heart using a low-pressure system called venous return system. The venous return system uses a muscular movement or gravity to move the blood along. One-way valves prevent backwash and keep the fluids moving towards the heart.
