[phpzon keywords="Varicose Vein Cream" num="6" country="US" searchindex="All" trackingid="fertility0716-20" minprice="20" templatename="columns" columns="3" paging="false"]

Varicose veins are visible just beneath the skin as they are situated quite under the surface of the skin. Usually they are swollen and twisted veins. The size of the veins varies in size. Some are quite small and some are very large. Very small veins are situated in between the layers of the skin and they are not easily visible. They are also known as "thread veins" or "spider veins". These veins are different from the varicose veins and are very difficult to treat. Varicose veins are situated just beneath the skin and they are visible easily. They are also known as "reticular veins". As varicose veins bulge the skin slightly we can see it from outside of the skin.

Some of the important causes of the varicose veins are:

1. Due to overweight pressure increases on the veins

2. Habit of standing or sitting for a long time puts pressure on the veins as it restricts the circulation

3. Hormonal changes during menopause and pregnancy

4. Aging

5. Hereditary

6. Chronic constipation

For some people varicose veins may be a matter of just cosmetic concern. But in some people they can cause aching, heaviness or pain or it may be a sign of some circulatory problem or heart disease. It may cause some serious complication if it is left untreated. It may result into blood clots, skin ulcers and inflammation in the veins.

Some natural remedies are there for the treatment of varicose veins.

1. One of the best natural remedy for the treatment of varicose veins is the herb horse chestnut. For the treatment of varicose veins and its related condition chronic venous insufficiency, this herb is widely used. It is having an active constituent called aescin which blocks the release of the enzyme that contributes in the damage of capillary walls. But it is little bit unsafe also especially the whole horse chestnut. It may cause vomiting, nausea, headache, convulsion, respiratory and circulatory failure and even it may result into death. But the extract of this herb is beneficial.

2. Extract of pine bark and grape seeds are very good to reduce the affect of varicose veins. It contains antioxidants which strengthen the connective tissue of blood vessels. It also reduces the inflammation. Main side effects are nausea and the upset of the stomach.

3. Butcher's broom is also very effective for the treatment of varicose veins. It strengthens collagen in blood vessels which improves circulation and thus reduces the problem of varicose veins.

  1. QUESTION:
    What does it mean when you see protruding veins in women's hands?
    Has anyone ever heard that when a women's veins in their hands protrude (or are raised high) they are at the peak of their sexuality.

  9. QUESTION:
    Is there any link between protruding veins and fitness level?
    a friend of mine told me that if the veins in your hands can be seen through the skin, you have a usually have a fairly good fitness level, and ultimately circulation...is this true??

    thanks!

    • ANSWER:
      there's certainly a relationship between the appearance of veins and fitness level. the lower your body fat, the more prominent the vessels will be. in addition to that, genetics also play a factor in terms of how visible or large your veins are to begin wtih. finally, there's the activity component. if you're working out, your body is having to pump blood at a quicky pace (and thus blood pressure increases and pushes on the vein walls, making them bulge out more).

  12. QUESTION:
    does any females have a lot of protruding arm veins and hand veins that always show?
    i need alot of answers to this question i have so many veins and i think there very gross does anyonthink the same and i need someone to talk to about this please

    • ANSWER:
      I definitely don't think they're gross. My friend & I, when we were in junior high, always talked about how women who are skinny and/or muscular have prominent veins. We would try to get veiny! I know that weight training can do it, but the skinny thing may have just been our personal observations. It makes sense, though, because excess fat makes it hard to see anything below the skin (besides fat). Veins are a necessary part of your anatomy, a part which I believe looks beautiful.

  13. QUESTION:
    does anyone know why i have bulging crows feet like veins protruding from my shoulders to upper chest?
    if not do you know a site i can go to so i can learn why?

    • ANSWER:
      I will take a good guess and say your a power lifter, or some type of weight lifter.

      When you strain at lifting weights, your veins will expand, so that more oxygen can go through them, to your muscle tissues, so you dont have oxygen deprivation.

      Also you put a strain on your circulatory system when you power lift, as it makes your heart rate go up, and if you are straining a muscle, and the blood cant go "into" the muscle, it has to back up into the vein, thus expanding it to large proportions...(especially those nearest the skin).

  15. QUESTION:
    I have protruding veins above my belly button. What does this mean?

    • ANSWER:
      Nita, If what you see really is a protruding vein above your belly button (umbilicus), like a varicose vein, it would be most unusual though being overweight tends to favor the development of varicose veins, usually in the legs. There is no doubt, because of your breast history, you should now get to see your physician or oncologist to get a sound opinion and hopefully put your mind at ease. Good luck.

      My understanding is (and I could be wrong) that there is nothing you can do about your mum's existing varicose veins, but she could do things to prevent getting more of them, such as keeping off her feet, wearing support socks and so on.

      You are a really sweet daughter though, you obviously care a lot for your mum.

    • ANSWER:

  25. QUESTION:
    How do you get the protruding vein effect that some people acheive from exercise?
    Is this a case of body fat or is there more to it?

    • ANSWER:
      It's a combination of body fat and muscle-fiber type. Obviously, a shell of body fat is going to cover any veins that you have, but it'll also cover your muscles, so I probably don't have to tell you to start with losing fat. Start with a solid diet of real, unprocessed foods. As for muscle-fiber type, you have less control here, but you can change things up, though I don't advise it.

      Here's why: slow-twitch muscle fibers are more oxidative and therefore require a greater blood supply than do fast-twitch fibers, which operate more in the glycolytic and phosphagenic energy, using more glycogen and ATP for fuel. So a very vascular person has more slow-twitch fibers.

      Why does this matter? Fast-twitch muscles are the ones that produce power. Sprinting, Olympic weight lifting, jumping, laying a tackle, throwing a baseball, or delivering a knockout right cross all arise from power generation, not necessarily strength. Given that, I can't advise using a high-rep program to increase vascularity and slow-twitch fiber composition at the expense of your fast-twitch fibers and explosive abilities.

    • ANSWER:
      Madonna's arm veins disturb me :/
      She looked better in the 80s etc.

      Oh sorry the question lol. Well judging from your avatar, if that really is you. You don't have a problem with the over-bulging of your veins, and you don't look like a chronic steroid user either. It would definitely just be because you have more muscle tone than fat.

      Anyway no it's not just a male thing, women get it as well. Anyway just out of curiousity (LOL I sound like a doctor, but I swear I'm not), does anyone in your family, have history of varicose veins?

  29. QUESTION:
    why might the veins in a foot be protruding obvious and enlarged?

    • ANSWER:
      Some people just naturally have more noticeable veins in the foot than others. If one of the veins seems larger than it had been in the past, it might be good to check with a doctor. Non-professional medical advice may or may not give you the correct answer, so to be safe ask your doctor to check it.

    i need a lots of anser to this question i have been working out for everyday and my veins are protruding every day is that normal i need alot of answer please i over work out does this happen when you over work out your veins bulge out bad

    • ANSWER:
      Answer is no, and yes, obviously too much strain in the body, can happen from exaggeration on hours in the gym, however veins popping out is actually a great thing, weather your trying to gain mass, or just lose weight. If veins are popping out, it means for one that you drink alot of water, therefore releasing plenty of harmful toxins, second your promoting greater vascularity, meaning better healhy heart pump, and better oxigen pump thought the body, and endocryne system! Hope I helped, John!

    Why do veins protrude out of my handsomely tanned skin?
