Varicose veins are usually treated by surgery or by getting rid of them with lasers or the use of harsh chemicals. But these treatments can be avoided. Here are some more excellent home remedies.
7. Grape Seed Extract
The tiny seeds inside grapes contain anti-oxidant substances and vitamin E. These anti-oxidants prevent free radical damage to the walls of the blood vessels. They also promote the formation of collagen. Collagen is a protein that helps maintain the elasticity of connective tissues. It also strengthens the walls of the blood vessels. This prevents leakage of fluid from the veins and swelling of the legs. You can use powdered grape seeds or commercially available grape seed extracts. Grape seed oil can also be used. It can be taken orally to relieve pain and inflammation.
8. Cayenne Pepper
Cayenne pepper is extremely rich in vitamin C and flavonoids. Both of these protect the walls of the blood vessels and promote collagen formation to keep these walls healthy and elastic. But the most important substance in cayenne pepper is capsaicin. Capsaicin has anti-inflammatory, analgesic, and blood thinning properties.
Cayenne pepper powder can reduce the pain and inflammation due to varicose veins. It can also prevent blood clots and ulcers. You can begin by taking cayenne powder orally. Just mix half a teaspoon cayenne pepper powder in a cup of water and gradually increase it up to 1 tablespoon. Topical application of capsaicin or cayenne pepper extract will also increase blood circulation and bring pain relief to tired and sore legs.
9. Pine Bark Extract
Pine bark extract is taken from the bark of French maritime pine. It contains phenolic acids and flavonoids that will give you many beneficial effects. These effects include reduction of varicose veins and the associated inflammation. The oral intake of pine bark extract has been shown to strengthen the walls of the blood vessels. It also will restore elasticity. Pine Bark Extract will reduce blood pressure and it also will improve blood circulation. Pine bark extract will also relieve many of the symptoms of varicose veins. These symptoms include leg cramps and pain caused by standing for long periods.
10. Pot Marigold
Pot marigold is an age-old remedy for many different skin problems. Varicose veins are not really a skin problem. But they can give lead to itching, dryness, eczema, and ulcers. Just mix the pot marigold petals in boiling water and use it as a warm compress. You can also soak in a warm bath with a handful of flowers added. The anti-inflammatory property of pot marigold will reduce inflammation and pain. It will also promote collagen formation in the skin. Pot marigold has anti-microbial properties which promotes blood circulation.
11. Gotu Kola
Commonly known as Indian pennywort, this ground-hugging herb has been used as a varicose vein remedy for thousands of years in India and other Southeast Asian countries. The herb extract or dried herb powder should be taken orally. It will reduce leakage from veins and will reduce inflammation and water retention. Topical application will also help heal wounds and ulcers by increasing blood flow.
