How Can I Prevent Varicose Veins?

Here are some ways on how you can reduce your chance of getting varicose veins:

  • Exercise regularly with a special emphasis on your leg strength such as walking and running.
  • Manage your weight to avoid placing too much pressure on your legs.
  • Elevate your legs when resting.
  • Eat a low- salt and high- fiber diet. Fiber which is found in fruits and vegetables helps to decrease occurrence of constipation, therefore, reducing your risk of developing varicose veins while reducing your salt intake can help reduce the swelling too.
  • Do not stand or sit for long periods of time. Try to shift in your position from time to time. Stand up, move around or take a short walk if possible.
  • Create and drink this juice recipe everyday
