There are a host of vein and circulation problems that affect all walks of life. From pregnancy related conditions to job and age related problems, common vein conditions include varicose veins, and their insidious partner hemorrhoids, phlebitis, thrombosis and slow circulation. When taken daily, Vein Support may help to relieve and treat these sometimes painful and potentially dangerous conditions.
Varicose veins are abnormally enlarged, bulging, bluish and lumpy-looking veins, often accompanied by dull, nagging aches and pains. Because poor circulation contributes to the formation of varicose veins, they are more common in people who sit or stand in one position for prolonged periods of time. Excess weight, heavy lifting and pregnancy can also put increased pressure on the legs that can lead to varicose veins. The herb Gotu Kola, found in Vein Support, has been found to have a positive effect on the circulatory system. It improves the flow of blood throughout the body by strengthening veins and capillaries. Gotu Kola has been shown to be particularly useful for people who are inactive or confined to bed due to illness.
Left untreated, varicose veins can lead to phlebitis, a painful inflammation of the vein that can in turn lead to thrombophlebitis which is an inflamed vein with a blood clot. This potentially dangerous condition can begin from trauma, infection, or standing for long periods of time. Deep Vein Thrombophlebitis (DVT) is the most severe form of this condition and can lead to chronic venous insufficiency, a lack of circulation to critical veins and capillaries. Horse Chestnut Seed extract, another ingredient in Vein Support, is a long-standing tradition remedy for these potentially dangerous conditions. Horse Chestnut Seed Extract may reduce the swelling, discomfort and much of the perpetual damage done to the veins by these disorders and has been shown to have positive shrinking effects to the painful cousin of varicose veins, hemorrhoids.
One of the main contributors to vein and circulatory problems is slow circulation. Grape Seed Extract, found in Vein Support, and has been shown to increase circulation in the veins and help build up fragile capillaries. European studies show that grape seed extract can help to increase flow in blood vessels, contributing to better regulation of blood pressure. It is also known as a powerful antioxidant that has been shown to be more effective than Vitamin C and Vitamin E in neutralizing free oxygen radicals.
Extenuating medical conditions can also lead to poor circulation and vein health. Common complaints of those suffering from hypothyroidism, under-active thyroid production, are fatigue, muscle swelling and cramps, slowed heart rate and fluid retention that causes swelling. Vein Support contains Bladderwrack (commonly know as kelp) that is especially high in iodine and potassium and has been used in tradition medicine to treat the symptoms of thyroid disease. Bladderwrack is one of the richest sources of minerals and trace elements and has the ability to protect against environmental toxins and increase circulation.
Combined together in Vein Support, these essential herbs may help to alleviate the pain and damage done to the body by chronic blood vessel disorders.
