Natural Treatment for Varicose Veins -Vitamin C with Bioflavonoids, Pycnogenol & More
Varicose veins – we’ve all seen them either on our own legs or someone else’s. The bulging, dark blue veins are hard to miss. Varicose veins are not only ugly; they can be very painful and can make your legs feel heavy and tired.
Spider veins, on the other hand, are thin red lines that can appear on other parts of your body too, like your arms, face or thighs. Spider veins do not bulge out, and, they are not painful like varicose veins although you may get some muscle cramping with spider veins.
Both varicose veins and spider veins are caused by poor circulation.
So, what do we have that can help you?
Vitamin C with bioflavonoids (the bioflavonoid rutin, in particular) is an antioxidant that can strengthen vein walls and help with circulation and bruising. This is important since varicose veins start appearing when the collagen in vein walls begins breaking down.
Pycnogenol is an antioxidant high in OPC’s (oligomeric proanthocyanidin complexes). OPC‘s have superior antioxidant properties which make Pycnogenol superior for helping improve circulation and fight inflammation and blood vessel damage. OPC’s, being water soluble, are easily absorbed by the body and make them very safe.
Butcher’s Broom is the number one herb for circulation support. Butcher’s broom will also relieve pain and discomfort due to varicose vein and is a very safe herb to take.
Combining either Pycnogenol or Butcher’s Broom with Vitamin C (or ideally taking all three) would be most beneficial for vein integrity and relief of varicose vein symptoms.
