Organs in the body need to receive the proper amount of blood, which cares all the nutrients in order to function properly. In case, this process is somehow slowed down it can lead to organ failure and if it happens to the vital organs, like the heart or the brain, the consequences can be fatal.
Our blood flow can be compared to traffic flow. When the circulation isn’t smoothly running it’s similar to a traffic jam, where can be nothing done. In this situation, there’s no productivity and we’re in a standstill position all the time. It is the same with your body if your organs don’t get the necessary blood amount nothing will get done properly. In the worst case, your organs will stop functioning to their maximum or stop completely.
