Best food habits for varicose veins remedy

Veins are blood vessels that are responsible for transporting the impure blood from the tissues back to the heart. These veins have valves which prevent blood from flowing backwards or against gravity. When the valves in the veins become weak or stop functioning, they become swollen and are called Varicose Veins. Varicose veins have both cosmetic and other health implications. Not only do they spoil the appearance of our legs but they also cause severe pain, leg cramping, swelling, itchy skin and Edema in extreme cases.

Diet plays an important role in the prevention of and as an antidote to varicose veins. Karishma Veins, a renowned varicose vein treatment clinic in Pune recommends the inclusion of the following food in the daily diet for people affected by varicose veins.

  • Fibrous Food: Foods that are rich in fibre help in easy digestion and thus reduce the pressure on the veins while passing stools. Whole wheat is rich in vitamins, minerals, protein and fibre. Replace white flour with whole wheat flour in the diet. Similarly rice and sugar can be avoided by including brown rice and fruits in the diet. All processed and refined foods should be avoided and replaced with fresh fruits and vegetables.

  • Vitamins: Vitamin C helps in good blood circulation, reduces inflammation, strengthens the walls of the veins and promotes healing. Oranges, lemon, berries, broccoli, tomatoes, and potatoes are some of the sources of Vitamin C. Vitamin E improves health of the veins, keeps platelets from sticking together and sticking to the vein walls. Spinach, kiwis, broccoli and other fortified cereals contain Vitamin E. Vitamin B which is found in whole and unprocessed foods like barley, oats, wheat, meat products, bananas, potatoes, lentils is very good for strengthening of the blood vessels. Vitamin K is found abundantly in spinach, broccoli and parsley. All these vitamins should essentially be included as part of the daily diet.

  • Water: Drink plenty of water and include a lot of juices and water rich fruits and vegetables as part of your daily diet. Water is a natural liver detox agent and a natural cleanser. It is advisable to consume around 8 glasses of water on an average per day.

  • Avoid Alcohol: Avoid alcohol consumption as much as possible. Frequent alcohol intake increases the risk of varicose veins.

  • Rutin: Rutin is citrus flavonoid found in many plants like buckwheat. Among the many benefits of Rutin, one is to reduce the brittleness and absorbency of vessels and thus prevents formation of new varicose veins. Rutin is found in buckwheat, apples, cherries, grapes, blackberries and apricot.

A balanced diet consisting of fibre rich food along with regular exercise helps in treating the existing and preventing new varicose veins. It is also important to take some precautions like avoid standing or sitting for long periods, keep the body weight under check, avoid high heels footwear, keep the affected foot elevated and  wear elastic support tights.
