Prevent Varicose Veins with Spinach

There are many different aspects of varicose vein prevention. The majority of these are related to getting appropriate exercise so that the circulatory system continues to work properly and therefore you don't develop varicose veins. However, diet can also play an important role in preventing varicose veins.

One report suggests that people interested in varicose vein prevention may want to start eating more spinach than what they currently consume. That's because the Vitamin K in spinach reportedly has a positive effect on the body's circulation and therefore prevents the development of varicose veins.

A French study found that Vitamin K is a requirement for maintaining healthy veins. The best way to get that vitamin is to eat your greens. The leading "greens" for the vitamin are found in the form of spinach. Although it's not the only thing you can do to prevent varicose veins, it certainly can't hurt.

Question of the Day: Should someone interested in varicose vein prevention make sure to eat spinach on a regular basis?
