3 Major Diet Tips to Fight Varicose Veins

When it comes to eating healthy, we should not just be thinking about bikini season, but overall health and how our everyday choices are preparing us for (or damaging) our future. Whether you have existing varicose veins or are being proactive and fighting the symptoms, these 3 easy diet tips can help your veins stay healthy and strong for years to come.

Consume more fiber

Fiber is a key ingredient to maintaining healthy veins. Soluble fibers from foods including oats, flaxseed, beans, apples, carrots, barley and berries allow for softer stools and will not put additional pressure on your veins. Because soluble fiber forms a gel when mixed with water, stools will be softer and prevent added pressure from building up.

 Stay hydrated

As mentioned above, water is also crucial in preventing added pressure on veins all throughout your body. By drinking water throughout the day, blood will be able to flow easily through the body without additional pressure.

Consume Vitamins C & E

Vitamins C and E, both powerhouse antioxidants, are crucial in maintaining connective tissue throughout the body and help to keep veins strong and toned. When consumed together, C and E have stronger effects on blood vessels and make for healthier vein activity overall. Available in foods such as, fruits, dark leafy vegetables, broccoli and berries, this combo is a varicose vein-fighting dynamic duo.
