Visible, cracked capillaries, visible veins, painful and swollen feet – are the problems that most women have. Primarily, this is an aesthetic problem for each of us, but, nevertheless, it is a sign that the blood vessels are weakened, mostly because of external factors, and partly because of the Internal.
The more I searched, I could not find a specific cause. I would say that this is a problem like cellulite, the causes are different with each woman. In fact, I do not know a woman who does not have burst capillaries on her legs. I had that problem for 20 years. I follow what’s going on, and I see that the capillaries are not spreading quickly, but they have spread significantly in the last 3 months, because I have been standing a lot and have walked into some kind of medical flip-flops, which I highly doubt are good.
Standing, sitting and uncomfortable shoes with too high or low heels will only accelerate the process of varicose veins. Pregnancy also, in my case everything started during the second pregnancy, when I had to rest. I believe that the nutrition is also crucial, if you consume enough animal protein and plenty of vitamin C, it will prevent the weakening of the vein wall.
Sugar and trans fatty acids can cause various body inflammation, which indirectly can weaken the capillary walls, therefore you should avoid them. These advices can help you alleviate the problem.
Horse Chestnut, the one that is growing as ornamental tree in the parks, is the ingredient that you need. If you want to solve your problem the natural way, I suggest to start reading.
Here are 4 recipes for the treatment of capillaries and veins:

Peel the chestnuts, chop them and put them in a jar.Pour the brandy over them. Seal the jar and leave it in a warm (but not too warm) place for 3 weeks. Stir it occasionally. After 3 weeks, strain the mixture through a gauze and store the remedy in a dark bottle. This remedy is made for external use in combination with marigold ointment.
Alcoholic extract (extract) for treatment of capillaries and veins
