3 Ways to Change up Your Diet for Healthy Veins

With summer just around the corner, if you are dreading having to show more skin because you have enough varicose veins to look like a road map yourself, then we have several solutions for you. In addition to one of our varicose vein treatments here at Texas Vein & Wellness Institute, did you know that what you eat and drink may also play a role in your vein health? Here are three things to add to your diet to hopefully get healthier veins before summer starts.

How Water Improves Vein Health

If you don’t already practically drink your weight in water every day, you are doing your body a serious disservice. Water is not only great for helping you maintain a lower weight— which can help prevent varicose veins in some people— but it can also help with blood flow to and from your veins.

The Link Between Fiber And Healthy Veins

In addition to drinking more water, try to eat a diet rich in fiber. The combination of fiber and water are known to help you reduce the risks of disorders like high cholesterol which can lead to varicose veins and other vein issues.

Eat Better

Filing your plate up with fresh, colorful food isn’t just pretty to look at— it can also do wonders for your veins. Foods that are rich in anti-inflammatory ingredients and antioxidants like red peppers, strawberries, spinach, and Brussel sprouts can help strengthen your veins linings and add more collagen to them in the process.
