Before we delve into varicose veins, I want to make sure you know that I am teaching a new online class this Fri, Dec 4th! The details and link to sign up for free are on the right under Upcoming Events.
Okay so back to your veins. Do you have varicose veins? If you are overweight or obese, pregnant, older, on hormonal birth control or hormonal therapy, or if you sit or stand for prolonged periods of time (more than 4 hrs at a time), you could be at higher risk for developing varicose veins. Varicose veins are more common among women than men because female hormones (estrogen and progesterone) tend to relax the walls of veins.
Varicose veins are typically described as having heavy, uncomfortable legs accompanied by dull pain. Feet and ankles can swell and you can have nighttime muscle cramps.
In a healthy vein, blood from all the different parts of the body flow toward the heart. This function is carried out smoothly with the help of tiny valves inside the veins. These tiny valves open and close to allow the blood through and not move backward.
When the walls of the veins are weak, the tiny valves are destroyed and blood flows backwards causing the vein to swell (varicose).
There are different treatment options for varicose veins, some of which are invasive while others are as simple as wearing compression stockings and elevating the legs to relieve the swelling.
But another great and natural remedy for varicose veins is amaranth oil!
Amaranth oil is produced by pressing amaranth seeds (from the amaranth flower). Amaranth seeds are packed with nutrients and antioxidants and benefit your health in many ways besides vein health.
Specifically, there is one nutrient and one antioxidant in amaranth oil that is responsible for the relief of varicose veins.
Rutin – Amaranth is high in flavonoids including rutin. Rutin strengthens the walls of the veins and even repairs the damage that is already there. Even if you don’t have varicose veins, taking amaranth oil can help prevent its development in the future.
Squalene – It is a very powerful antioxidant that regulates blood circulation and even prevents damage on the walls of veins due to high blood pressure. It is otherwise known as Omega 2.
Squalene, which is also found in olive oil and in high amounts in shark oil, protects the body against cancer, regulates cholesterol levels, and helps keep the cells and skin healthy.
Here’s the link for my preferred amaranth oil. Check it out and let me know what you think.
