Discovery Health tells us that about 25% of women and 10% of men will be affected by varicose veins. Veins pump blood against the force of gravity from our feet to our heart. If a person has defective one-way valves in the lower extremities, blood can pool into bumpy, knot-like enlarged veins. Varicose veins can be more than a cosmetic problem. They can cause pain, swelling, itchiness, and heaviness in the lower legs. Immediate medical attention is needed if open ulcers or blood clots develop. Hemorrhoids are also a type of varicose vein.
Foods rich in flavonoids are recommended for their ability to keep blood vessels healthy. Flavonoids are found in colorful fruits and vegetables such as cherries, berries, blueberries, and grapes. Ginger, bromelain, garlic, onions, and cayenne pepper are also recommended.
The Following Supplements Provide Helpful Nutrition:
FiberWise and Florify helps maintain healthy digestion and regular bowel movements which prevents additional aggravation of varicose veins and hemorrhoids.
CellWise provides broad-spectrum anti-aging and antioxidant protection at the cellular level. This broad-spectrum antioxidant formula was created by combining a mix of antioxidants from different natural sources.
NutraView contains the research-recommended 10mg of lutein, and 2mg zeaxanthin, plus a powerful antioxidant combination of blueberry and bilberry extract that is believed to improve night vision.
ProvexCV and ProVex-Plus are rich with grape flavonoids known to improve blood circulation. The University of Maryland notes that a number of studies have shown that the powerful antioxidants in grape seed extract help improve symptoms of varicose veins along with other health improvements.
CranBarrier is unique in that it contains cranberry extract along with blueberry and uva ursi (bearberries) extracts. Two tasty chewable tablets of CranBarrier contain 1,000mg of cranberry extract which is the amount that is found in 10 ounces of pure undiluted cranberry juice.
The Melaleuca Wellness Guide tells us that toe action like walking barefoot on a sandy beach assists the pumping of blood back to the heart, and keeps leg veins and their check-valves healthy. Keeping active and maintaining a healthy weight is beneficial in preventing and lessening the symptoms of varicose veins.

Varicose Veins Success Stories

Both my husband and I had unsightly varicose veins. Additionally, my husband had a huge vein bubble on the front of his shin. It was about an inch by three-quarters of an inch and I was afraid to touch it for fear it would burst. We took ProVex and ProVex Plus when they were introduced by Melaleuca. I don't know how long it took, but my husband's bubble disappeared, and since then both of us have been totally free of varicose veins. At present, we take the Vitality 6 for 50 plus, so the ProVexCV and other supplements keep our veins healthy.
Varicose veins run in my family. I have had poor circulation all my life, and after having six children I have a lot of varicose veins. When I began shopping from Melaleuca in 1996 I started taking the Provex Plus. When Melaleuca introduced Prove CV, I started taking that right away. In the last sixteen years my varicose veins have not gotten worse, and I never experience any pain from them. According to medical professionals, this is a miracle. To me it is just another way Melaleuca enhances my life.
Melaleuca supplements have helped me with several health issues. Fifteen years ago I started having pain from a varicose vein in my left leg, and it continued to bother me until two years ago when I was introduced to Melaleuca. After I started taking the Vitality Total, the pain gradually left. Now I forget that I even have it, and it isn't as noticeable as it used to be either. Thanks Melaleuca!
Varicose veins run in my family. My mother had them and my brother recently had a surgical procedure to treat them. He said they ached, itched, and he hated the way they looked. After the treatment the doctor told him the injection site would be black and blue possibly for several weeks. He used a bit of the T36-C5 I had given him and was amazed that in just days all the bruising just disappeared. I've taken the Vitality 6 for almost eight years and thankfully, I do not have varicose veins problems.
