Prevention measures for varicose veins

Prevention measures for varicose veins

Food can have a significant impact on the problems with veins. If you have a predisposition (doing a job that requires a lot of standing or sitting) or your doctor warned you to be careful, think about changing the diet. You need a lot of healthy fiber - vegetables, fruits, legumes and grains, which stimulate peristaltic movements of the muscular layer of the gastrointestinal tract. If you have constipation, due to low in fiber, there is pressure on the abdomen, which prevents proper blood flow to the legs. This of course weakens the veins over time, which leads to enlargement, pain, and in some people and the occurrence of hemorrhoids.

Intake of flavonoids stands out as the most important problem focused on varicose veins. Eat as often as haws, cherries, blueberries, blackberries, currants. They are rich proantocijaninima, anthocyanins and flavonoids, pigments that improve the function of the vascular system. Flavonoid-rich and: buckwheat, grape seed extract and pine bark.
