Healthy legs

  • Published in News

The legs are foothold and privileged tool of the movement: preserve their well-being, is critical. Especially in summer, when high temperatures, stimulating the dilation of vessels, a number of factions deepen problems for months remained under track. Hence appear swollen, sense of fatigue, capillary fragility, soreness, and sometimes pain. Accomplice the hormonal, these disorders are more common in females, which is also the most sensitive to the aesthetic aspect of the problem. The limbs are generally subjected to more stress, not only in sports, but also in everyday life. Moreover, for the same reason, the lower joints have fewer degrees of freedom than upper limbs.

Among the resources made available by phytotherapy, we find horse chestnut (Aesculus hippocastanum), red vine (Vitis vinifera) and butcher's broom or Ruscus (Ruscu aculeatus): are plants that perform an action vasotonica, angioprotettiva and antiedemigena. While the ginkgo (Ginkgo biloba) is an effective antioxidant and anti inflammatory, which improves the microcirculation and inhibit platelet aggregation. To get a good response from these natural remedies, you should use synergy for several months of tablets (1-2 per day) and creams or gels [SEE PEDYX REFRESHING LEGS GEL], be applied morning and evening with massages lenses from the bottom upwards.

Vitamin C supplements, preferably including flavonoids (quercetin, rutin, hesperidin), have a beneficial effect on the resistance of the venous walls.Choose at least 500 milligram tablets, taken throughout the summer. Great importance, as always, nutrition. Often worse combine foods rich in salt, which promotes water retention. Abundant with foods high in potassium, which facilitate diuresis, stimulates the Elimination of excess fluids. Strengthen and preserve the elasticity of veins all berries: blackberries, redcurrants, raspberries and especially blueberries. If then there disturbs the flavor, do not forget that garlic and onion. Thanks to the concentration of rutin, also help blood-thinning and to prevent the formation of blood clots. Physical activity is always a cost effective remedy against swollen legs and heavy. The poor circulation and venous stagnation are indeed children of two excesses: the sedentary life and too many hours spent standing. It is useful then to move at least 30 consecutive minutes per day, preferring activity aerobic (fast walking, running, swimming, biking, step). A good idea is also routinely take the stairs instead of the elevator. If you are forced to stand long, more or less, the advice is to stand up on their toes every now and then: the game between contraction and muscle relaxation helps the flow circulatory systems.
