Bioflavonoids and Varicose Veins

Updated on: August 18, 2014
Anti-oxidants are the new black. In other words, everyone is taking an interest in anti-oxidants and what they can do to better their bodies and health. One specific type of anti-oxidants that have drawn attention is flavanoids (also known as bioflavanoids). Found in citrus, tea, wine and dark chocolate, these anti-oxidants are reported to have a diverse range of health benefits. And many have suggested that they may provide a cure for varicose veins. What research seems to indicate is that they don't cure varicose veins. In order to treat your varicose veins, you really do need to see a vein treatment doctor who will use a procedure such as VNUS Closure Fast or sclerotherapy to actually heal your varicose veins. But that doesn't mean that bioflavanoids are bad. In fact, it is believed that these natural antioxidants have the potential to treat some of the symptoms of varicose veins. If you want to reduce the pain of your varicose veins during the time that you're awaiting vein treatment, these could be a natural way to do that. You'll want to talk to your doctor about the specifics. Question of the Day: Do you believe that ati-oxidants are the cure-all many people think they may be? photo link
