Varicose, Vein Care
Varicose veins basically are enlarged raised blood vessels and most commonly occur on the upper leg (thigh), lower leg (calf) and/or anus, where they referred to as “hemorrhoids”. While varicose veins might be painful and cause physical discomfort, they don’t present a serious health risk. Lifestyle and dietary habits (i.e. poor diet, inactive lifestyle, obesity, standing for long period of time and pregnancy) play a significant role in the development of varicose veins. A balanced whole food diet high in fibre and low in fat with regular exercise can contribute to prevention and assist those with this condition. Varicose vein supplements may help to discourage the formation of varicose veins or provide relief of symptoms associated with this condition.+ Read more >
Varicose health supplements acting as blood thinners like gingko biloba (standardized extract 24% flavone glycosides) gotu kola and vitamin E may help to increase circulation therefore improve blood flow. Other varicose vein supplements to consider are: proteolytic enzymes, omega 3 essential fatty acids found in fish or flax oil and the digestive enzyme “bromelain” – they all contain anti-inflammatory properties helping to reduce inflammation. Bromelain and proteolytic enzymes discourage blood clots as well. In addition to lifestyle and diet modifications and taking varicose vein supplements other alternative therapeutic modalities are beneficial too; acupuncture performed by an experienced doctor of traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) can help to clear the “blood” and “qi” or “life force” stagnation – in TCM varicose veins are associated with “qi” and “blood” stagnation. One of the theories in TCM is that physical and psychological health issues are created when “qi” becomes blocked or stagnant and re-establishing the flow of “qi” is essential for perfect health and well-being. If you must stand for a prolonged period of time do some stretching exercises in between, this is a great way to increase blood circulation.

Natural Factor Rutin is a bioflavonoid that is found in many plants. Buckwheat contains about 3% dry by weight rutin when the plant is starting to bloom. In particular, rutin, as well as the bioflavonoids, quercetin, and naringen, work synergistically with vitamin C to scavenge free radicals. As well as being an antioxidant, rutin helps vitamin C to keep collagen, our 'intercellular cement' healthy. Rutin strengthens capillaries, reducing their fragility, and regulates their permeability, so is very supportive bioflavonoid for blood vessel health. Rutin may help reduce nose bleeds and the bruising and swelling of sports injuries. Rutin, quercetin and other bioflavonoids help to inhibit the release of histamine which makes these bioflavonoids very valuable for allergy-sufferers.

Vitamin B3 essentially comes in two forms: niacin (or nicotinic acid) and niacinamide and both possess the same vitamin activity in the body. Some people prefer to take niacinamide because niacin can cause flushing, which is characterized by itching, burning, and tingling sensations of the skin. However, niacin, not niacinamide, is recommended for circulatory problems, and it has greater cholesterol and triglyceride lowering properties. Niacin is necessary for the metabolism of carbohydrates, fats and proteins. When given in large amounts, niacin has a drug-like effect on blood cholesterol levels. It seems to inhibit the secretion of cholesterol from the liver into the circulation, and also increases the amount of high density lipoprotein, the so-called "good cholesterol". World-renowned author and researcher, Dr. Abram Hoffer, uses very high doses of niacin to treat schizophrenia with good results.
