Varicose veins are a common condition manifested by enlarged veins visible through the skin. They usually occur on the calves and thighs when the veins develop weakened walls or poorly functioning valves.

According to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, the condition affects 25% of women and 10% of men in the USA.

The condition causes pain, fatigue, restlessness as well as burning and throbbing sensation in the legs. Bulging veins are also a problem for many people and look very unpleasant.

There are several factors which accelerate the appearance of varicose veins: standing or sitting for too long, wearing uncomfortable shoes with too high or low heels, pregnancy or nutrition – having a balanced diet of animal protein and plenty of vitamin C should prevent the weakening of the vein walls.

Sugar and trans fats cause inflammation in the body and weaken the walls of blood vessels, which is why you should eliminate them from your diet. One ingredient which can help you in cases of varicose veins is horse chestnut. Try this natural remedy against the condition:


3 tablespoons of Aloe Vera gel

Half a cup of apple cider vinegar

Half a cup of finely chopped carrots


Put all the ingredients in a blender and mix until you get a smooth texture – double or decrease the amount of the ingredients depending on your needs.


Apply the mixture on the affected area and secure it with a bandage, then leave it to work for about an hour. In the end, rinse with lukewarm water. For best results, have your legs raised while the remedy acts. Repeat the treatment every day until you notice results.

The secret of the recipe’s effectiveness lies in the ingredients. Carrots contain antioxidants while ACV acts as an anticoagulant which thins the blood and prevents blood clots. Aloe Vera gel has powerful anti-inflammatory properties which will reduce the inflammation in your body.
