Posted Feb 26 2010 6:02am

The presence of varicose veins can be down right annoying. More commonly occurring in the legs, varicose veins are a sign of swollen veins. Varicose veins are usually a result of the weakening of the veins leading to improper blood flow to the heart, where blood collects in the veins rather then be free flowing to the heart. Varicose veins are considered a cosmetic implication rather than a medical concern

The common causes of varicose veins include nutrient deficiencies, pregnancy, lack of physical exercise and obesity and remaining in a fixed position for prolonged periods of time. The visibility of these veins can be quite disheartening. However, there are nutritional and herbal steps that can be taken in order to reduce the appearance of varicose veins.

  • An old standing remedy for varicose veins is the intake of fresh carrot-spinach juice. Mix together three parts fresh carrot juice with 2 parts spinach juice. This should help reduce the appearance of varicose veins.
  • Make sure you have an adequate Omega 3 intake. Omega 3 fatty acids keep the blood flowing more smoothly in the system and are an integral part of heart health.
  • Have a diet rich in antioxidants. This includes a diet rich in fruits and vegetables. Another popular remedy for varicose veins calls for partaking in a all-fruit and vegetable diet for 2 days to cure varicose veins. However, having a balanced diet is critical for having optimal health.
  • It is believed that applying apple cider vinegar directly on the affected area will help with the treatment of varicose veins. The remedy calls for a daily application off apple cider vinegar, 2 to 3 times a day.
