Varicose veins can be the bane of many people’s lives. They can look unsightly and be painful, causing poor circulation and other vascular problems. Varicose veins are swollen and enlarged veins, usually blue or purple in colour that can appear lumpy, bulging or twisted.

The symptoms of varicose veins can include aching, heavy and uncomfortable legs, swollen feet and ankles, burning or throbbing in the legs, muscle cramps and dry, itchy or thin skin over the affected veins.

These symptoms can become worse in the warm weather or when you have been standing for long periods of time. Walking around can improve their appearance, especially if you rest or raise your legs.

What causes varicose veins?

They are caused by weak vein walls and valves that can open to let the blood through and then close to prevent it from flowing backwards. These walls can sometimes become stretched and this results in them losing their elasticity, causing the valves to weaken. When the valves don’t function properly, the blood can leak and flow backwards causing the blood to collect in the veins making them look swollen and enlarged.

There are certain factors that can increase the risk of developing varicose veins and these include gender, genetics, age, being overweight, your occupation, pregnancy and other conditions. Women are more likely to be affected and this increases if a close family member has the condition. Getting older can also have this effect, causing the elasticity of the veins to weaken and the valves to stop working as well. Being overweight can put excess pressure on the veins and long periods of sitting can make the condition worse. There may be other reasons why varicose veins have developed and this can include a previous blood clot, swelling or tumor in the pelvis or abnormal blood vessels.

How Serrapeptase Can Ease Varicose Veins

The varicose veins are the result of inflamed tissue within the body and this can be greatly eased by taking serrapeptase. This is a proteolytic enzyme derived from the silkworm that can dissolve and digest inflamed non-living tissue that may be causing damage within the body.

Once these blockages have been removed, it’s then possible for the blood to flow freely and once this happens the varicose veins will then disappear. The healing can then begin and with the blood flowing around the body, it’s possible for the healthy skin to once again re-emerge.

Serra Enzyme 80,000IU is highly recommended for this purpose. Available in capsules and tablets, the Serrapeptase SerraEnzyme can safely dissolve away any inflammation that’s causing these issues.

Serranol™ is a combination formula of Serrapeptase, Curcumin, Ecklonia Cava Extract and Vitamin D3 that can support  healthy blood flow and circulation around the body. It’s recommended to take 2 capsules, 3 times a day for best results.

Good skin health starts with good blood flow and circulation and Serrapeptase can become an integral part of your skincare routine to keep it in top condition.
