Vein Complex – Varicose Vein Relief

Varicosin helps with the pain and appearance of varicose veins. Varicose veins are most often found in the backside of the legs; they appear as swollen, twisted veins just under the surface of the skin.

Varicose veins are common. They can cause mild to moderate pain, and in extreme cases may lead to an ulceration or blood clot.

Veins get this way after time. They most commonly occur in women who’ve carried babies. The veins have one-way valves in them that help push blood up from the lower parts of our bodies. Carrying a baby exerts pressure on these valves, and they eventually fail, allowing blood to pool in them. As a result, the veins get backlogged with blood, becoming swollen and painful.

Varicose veins are more unsightly and painful than they are dangerous. Typical treatment involves staying off one’s feet (good luck with that!) and wearing long, pressurized medical grade hose that fit tightly on the legs – but those don’t necessarily work in the summertime!

This is where Vein Complex can help. Vein Complex is a blend of three different herbs with vein-supporting actions.

Butcher's Broom ( Ruscus aculeatus) causes the walls of affected veins to tighten by acting locally on the nerves surrounding veins. This effect leads to reduced volume of the vein and diminished pooling of blood in the veins. Other chemicals (flavonoids) in Butcher’s Broom help strengthen blood vessel and capillary walls and promote healthy circulation.(1)

Horse Chestnut ( Aesculus hippocastanum) has long been used for vein problems, and modern research has validated its historical use. The active ingredients in horse chestnut work to reduce swelling and inflammation in blood vessels. Researchers think it does this by “sealing” leaky blood vessels, improving their elastic strength, and blocking the release of chemicals that weaken and damage vein walls.(2)

Gotu Kola (Centella asiatica) has long been used in Ayurvedic medicine (the traditional medicine of India), and was considered an “official” medicine in France in the 1880’s. Gotu Kola has been studied extensively and leads to reduced swelling, pain, and fluid leakage from veins by strengthening the venous tissue. Additionally, researchers have found it reduced pain, fatigue and sensation of heaviness in the legs as well. (3,4)

Vein Complex contains the three most studied and effective botanical medicines for treatment of varicose veins. Regular use may decrease the pain and appearance of varicose veins.

Being from Colorado, we know altitude.  Denver and the Front Range areas are roughly 5000+ feet, or a mile (1600 meters) high.  This elevation, while nothing extreme, definitely presents a challenge to visitors.

How Long Can You Maintain Fitness Levels?

Often times I am asked, “just how long can I rest while I recover from my injury/illness, before I start to lose my fitness level”?  All of us are hesitant to give up the gains we have made from all of that training. Although this is not a straight forward question, there is plenty of enlightening research on this subject.
