As we discussed in a recent blog, it’s very common for women to develop varicose and spider veins in their legs as they age. Whether the veins are a cause of physical pain, insecurity, or both, they are a grievance to women all over the world. While some women turn to surgery or laser therapy to remove/treat these veins, these processes can be incredibly invasive, painful, and expensive.
If you haven’t yet developed these dark blue and purple protruding veins on your legs or they aren’t yet noticeable to others, this article is for you. There are a few ways you can prevent varicose veins and spider veins from appearing or getting worse.
Here are our tips.
Give Your Legs and Feet Some Time Off
If your career or hobbies require you to stand or sit for a long time, you are at a greater risk for developing varicose and spider veins. Throughout your day, try to find a few minutes to relieve the pressure off your legs and feet by propping them up or walking around. Even brief sessions of movement allow your leg muscles to better assist your veins in pushing blood towards your heart, improving your circulation. Elevating your feet up onto a stool or chair periodically will alleviate much of the gravitational pressure, reducing ankle swelling.
Low-intensity exercises like walking, swimming, and yoga are all great for stretching your leg muscles, improving circulation, and alleviating pressure in your legs. You can do these exercises proactively to prevent varicose veins and spider veins, as well as in an effort to prevent worsening existing varicose and spider veins.
Wear Compression Hose
Sometimes, adding external pressure to your legs and ankles can help keep your veins in line, helping them work properly and with less strain.
You can find many different brands of compression socks/stockings over-the-counter or prescribed by your doctor. Most women who wear compression socks and stockings do so to alleviate pain in their legs due to existing varicose and spider veins, but they can also be used as a preventative measure. If you decide to use compression gear to prevent varicose veins in your legs, consult your physician to determine the right level of firmness for you.
This summer, Vegan Life Nutrition is launching Diosmin95 — an all-natural, vegan supplement designed to help reduce the appearance of varicose veins and promote improved circulation throughout the body.
The 95% Diosmin used in this product is the highest available in the commercial markets.
Diosmin is a venoactive ingredient, which simply means it is known to affect symptoms related to venous diseases and abnormalities.
By helping to improve circulation, promoting the elasticity of blood vessels, strengthening veins, reducing inflammation, and supporting lymphatic drainage, this compound has been used for decades to reduce the appearance of spider and varicose veins and minimize swelling in the body, primarily in the legs.
You should consult your physician before taking Diosmin95 or any other supplement.
