Cranberries and varicosities!

If you have varicose veins or spider veins, eating cranberries can reduce the severity of the veins!  The berries have compounds in them that strengthen the walls of the veins.  This is good, so the blood can return more easily to the heart.  You may have to eat a cup or two a day of the dried cranberries and then look and see how your veins are (not) popping out!  

Other berries are good to eat as well, but cranberries have a good amount of flavonoids.  Other good sources are hawthorn berries and blueberries.

 

Here's a good resource for learning more about varicose veins.
