Can Vitamins Help Prevent or Treat Varicose Veins?

One key to good vein health is consuming a well-balanced nutritious diet. A reduced-salt diet that is rich in whole, high-fiber foods along with plenty of water can help to give the body the nutrients it needs, improve circulation, and reduce constipation.

Certain vitamins appear to be especially beneficial to good vein health. These include Vitamins C, E, K, and the B’s. The B vitamins include vitamin B6, B12, thiamin, riboflavin, niacin, folic acid, biotin and pantothenic acid. These vitamins can help to prevent clotting, build collagen and elastin, balance cholesterol, reduce inflammation, and strengthen vein and capillary walls.

Nutritious eating habits and maintaining a healthy weight can help to prevent a variety of medical problems. Although vitamins may not eliminate existing varicose veins, they can help promote healthier circulation and assist in alleviating symptoms.

Aside from diet and nutrition, exercise is always great for circulation, along with changing sitting or standing positions regularly, wearing sunscreen, and elevating legs frequently. Although varicose veins may not be preventable, it is possible to stop the ones that already exist from getting worse and to delay the formation of new ones. Lifestyle can play a big role.

However, when symptoms are painful and lifestyle changes have not provided sufficient relief, varicose veins treatment can help. A specialist vein doctor can effectively provide non-surgical, minimally invasive varicose veins treatment using the latest endovenous laser ablation and sclerotherapy for varicose veins techniques in just minutes per leg.

There’s minimal discomfort, and treatment is virtually painless, and with these modern therapies, most people can resume their daily activities immediately after treatment. Additionally, most major health insurance carriers provide coverage for the treatment of vein disease and venous insufficiency when medically necessary.
