Why do your food choices matter? Most people are aware of the vitamins and minerals found in fruit and vegetables; however, many people are not familiar with the Bioflavonoids that are also provided when you consume them. Bioflavonoids have anti-inflammatory properties, which can be important in people with vein disease including venous insufficiency, vein reflux. Learn more about Vein Disease.

Vein disease and varicose veins affect almost 60% of the population. This occurs from dysfunction of the valves in the veins of the legs, causing the veins to become stretched/dilated. The results in increased “leakiness” of the vessel walls. Bioflavonoids help to strengthen the vein walls and improve the function of the vessels.

Foods Containing Bioflavonoids

  • Fresh Fruit, especially citrus, berries and tree fruits
  • Vegetables, especially broccoli, spinach, kale, red onion, peppers
  • Herbs: Peppermint, Thyme, Oregano
  • Teas, especially Green Teas
