While most effective treatments for varicose veins typically involve vein closures, there have been significant advancements in natural treatments that can also be used. The most popular and prescribed natural treatment for varicose veins is a chemical called Diosmin. This chemical is naturally produced by citrus fruits and is used to create medication that targets the causes of varicose veins.
How Does It Work
Varicose veins and other chronic venous disease are typically caused by venous hypertension that can aggravate metabolic imbalances in our legs. This aggravation can lead to venous acidosis and inflammation in your vascular tissue that is often seen as ulceration, edema, and even deep vein thrombosis. Diosmin works by helping to reduce the inflammation in your veins and reduce any venous hypertension. Research studies have shown that taking Diosmin can reduce fluid volume in a patient’s leg.
Additional Uses for Diosmin
You will be pleasantly surprised to learn Diosmin can also treat other blood vessel disorders. Diosmin is commonly used to help treat hemorrhoids, poor circulation, and bleeding that occurs in your gums and eyes. Diosmin is also used to help with swelling for those who have received breast cancer surgery.
Possible Side Effects
Similar to other natural remedies, Diosmin can have possible side effects. Some individuals may report side effects such as headaches, diarrhea, and stomach pain when ingesting Diosmin.
Where Can You Find It?
Diosmin is often found in capsules and taken orally. These supplements can be found at most pharmacies and natural food stores. Similar to other natural remedies, Diosmin is not FDA approved and there is no set limit to how many capsules can be taken per day. If you are considering taking Diosmin for your chronic venous disease, including varicose veins, make sure to check in with your physician first. The research studies involving Diosmin have limited participants with further research needed to determine any concrete effects it has on vein disease.
