You Can Get Rid of those Pesky Critters
Do spider veins stop you from showing off your legs?
I can definitely relate to your dilemma. When I discovered my first unsightly cluster of those pests on my thigh, I was not impressed to say the least.
I immediately went to work, and researched all I could about spider veins. This page is the result of my quest, and will show you how to: prevent, minimize and get rid of those pesky critters.
So let's begin...
What are they?
They are the unsightly blue, red or purple clusters or webs of superficial, small veins mostly found on the legs. Officially they are called telangiectasias or sunburst varicosities.They are different from varicose veins, as they are very fine and not bulging.
What causes them?
They are caused by abnormal blood circulation, weak vein walls or faulty vein valves.
What factors contribute to their development?
- They are hereditary
- Mostly women get them
- Hormonal changes
- Standing or sitting for long periods of time
- Crossing your legs when sitting
- Weight gain
- Some medications
Now that we've covered the basics let's talk about...
Prevention and Treatments
A big part of the prevention and treatment is: diet and dietary supplements.
Diet alone will not cure, or necessarily prevent venous problems.
However, I strongly believe that well balanced, healthy eating habits contribute to your overall well being, and also to your venous health.

Dietary and herbal supplements, contribute towards strengthening the veins and some people report large improvement in the appearance of their legs, as the pesky veins diminish or fade.
