Varicose veins are actually enlarged and weakened veins that are easily visible under the upper skin layer. They are usually dark purple or blue.
Genetics, standing for too long, obesity, straining, and pregnancy are some of the major contributing causes.
Compression stockings and other compression techniques are some of the treatments for varicose veins, but these are accompanied with major side effects like painful inflammation, swellings, and feeling of heaviness in the lower limbs.
Varicose veins make a net of dilated capillaries and spider veins, which make the condition even worse.
Garlic is one of the most common natural remedies for varicose veins and inflammation. It removes toxic waste from the body, and stimulates blood flow.
