There are a wide number of home treatments for spider veins available and it is fair to say that they can also vary widely in their effectiveness. Ultimately when choosing a home remedy of spider veins you may need to try out several until you find a dietary supplement, lotion or lifestyle change that has a positive impact.
One of the best ways to ensure that you are doing everything possible to reduce the possibility of new varicose veins appearing is by adopting good healthy living habits, taking regular exercise, not smoking, reducing your intake of salt and saturated fat and eating a varied diet that is packed with fresh fruit and vegetables.
Reducing salt and saturated fat as well as stopping smoking is particularly important because of the well documented negative effects these bad habits have on cardiovascular health, while exercise is a great way of maintaining and improving the circulation.
There are also several creams, oils and lotions on the market that can help to fade spider veins, though they require that you stick with them for a significant period of time in order to see results. However as previously mentioned, it is also possible that they may not work for you at all so it is worth reading the reviews before you commit to any expenditure.
Bio oil, which is a blend of easily absorbed oils including rosemary oil, is used to treat scars, reduce stretch marks and to fade spider veins. Some users have reported significant improvements to the appearance of their spider veins but this does not occur in all cases and the oil is quite expensive to buy.
Vein Away cream is another product on the market that purports to improve the appearance of spider veins, however again the reviews are rather mixed about its effectiveness and again it is rather pricy.
Alternatively, there are a number of dietary supplements available that may be able to help in reducing the appearance of spider veins. Gingko Biloba is a tried and tested dietary supplement that can play an excellent supporting role for the circulatory system.
Incidentally, this supplement is often suggested for older people as it can also help lessen the symptoms of Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia, by increasing blood flow throughout the body helping the brain to work more efficiently.
Horse Chestnut also has been reported as being an excellent remedy for all of the symptoms of varicose veins and spider veins, though in order to see effective results the patient needs to take this for around three months. This has been subject to clinical trials that verify the claims that this extract can improve circulation, reduce inflammation and strengthen capillaries and veins.
There is only one downside that it is important to remember when taking Horse Chestnut extract on a regular basis, and that is that you must not exceed the maximum dosage as large doses can be toxic.
Butcher’s Broom, Grape Seed, Bilberry and Hawthorn extracts are also all meant to be very useful for treating spider veins due to the presence of bioflavonoids that strengthen and rebuild capillary and blood vessel walls.
