A “Knocking Down” Disease

…that is how in the times of Hippocrates they called a disease, characterized by constant torturous pains in legs, edema and night convulsions. Nowadays this disease still causes trouble to many men and women—the issue in question is chronic venous insufficiency.

Millennium Disease

We often disregard daily heaviness and weakness in legs, attributing those to temporary exhaustion and rapid fatigability. However, if those painful symptoms keep vexing you regularly, maybe it is time to consider them as incipient signs of the chronic venous insufficiency. 

stat vsgel snog1What exactly is chronic venous insufficiency? This concept unites a range of diseases of the venous system of lower limbs, accompanied with venous valves’ insufficiency, obliteration or coarctation of trunk groups, as well as venous circulation disturbance, and trophic changes of the skin and subcutaneous layer. The blood flow is disturbed due to feebleness of venous valves, which normally facilitate blood circulation, and also due to formation of blood clots in veins and the lack of physical activity. 

Chronic venous insufficiency is usually manifested by edema and heaviness in legs, itching and tingling feelings, repeated night convulsions, hyperpigmentation of the skin of ankles, vascular spiders, dilated subcutaneous veins of shins and feet. 

According to the average clinical data, 90% of women and 66% of men in developed countries suffer from the first symptoms of chronic venous insufficiency. Lately this ailment has grown so widespread, that many specialists have named it the “disease of the civilization”.

How It All Begins

What causes progressing of the chronic venous insufficiency? For the most part, it is conditioned by our lifestyle. Sedentary or standing type of work, the lack of physical activity and overweight, uncomfortable shoes with high heels, minor injuries of feet, frequent flights and also hereditary factor—all of that may ultimately provoke the chronic venous insufficiency.

In most cases this ailment is inherent in women, rather than in men, although they also happen to be affected by this troublesome disease.

There are several major causes that provoke the chronic venous insufficiency:

  • varix dilatation;
  • deep venous thrombosis;
  • innate pathologies of the venous system;
  • pregnancy and childbirth;
  • overweight, obesity;
  • administration of hormonal preparations (as a consequence of estrogen level increase);
  • prolonged static overloads (long trips in public transport, standing or sedentary type of work), recurrent lifting of heavy weights;
  • persistent constipation;
  • platypodia;
  • smoking.

Chronic Venous Insufficiency: Development Stages

Zero stage—no visible manifestations of chronic venous insufficiency; first strenuous sensations (discomfort, tiredness in the evening, rapid fatigability, “bulging” and burning feeling), slight edema of ankles and shins in the evening.

First stage—slight painful sensations (night convulsions of calf muscles), telangiectasia (emerging of vascular spiders), singular dilated veins (up to 5 cm in length).

Second stage—pronounced painful sensations, edema, varicose knots and an array of dilated veins (over 5 cm).

Third stage—all abovementioned symptoms are accompanied by hyperpigmentation of certain areas, following the changing of the varicose pattern.

Fourth stage—existing signs of the chronic venous insufficiency are followed by trophic changes (trophic ulcer).

Revolutionary Solution—VenoStrong Gel

Specifically to fight the symptoms of chronic venous insufficiency, Vision has created VenoStrong gel. The gel’s unique formula has been developed explicitly for external use and simultaneously addresses all manifestations of the chronic venous insufficiency. VenoStrong gel has a unique healing, cooling and tending action: helps quickly alleviate heaviness and pain in legs, regain the sense of comfort and lightness. Most contemporary and powerful ingredients—natural remedies with pronounced efficiency—have been selected to create this unique product, aimed at fighting the chronic venous insufficiency.

Grape leaf extract is a powerful source of antioxidants, indispensable to improve blood circulation and mitigate edema. It instantaneously abates the symptoms of surface inflammations, regulates the blood flow in organs and tissues and invigorates veins. Butcher’s broom extract enhances blood circulation, constricts venous vessels and strengthens vascular walls. Hamamelis extract produces a conspicuous vasoconstrictive and astringent effect, promotes the outflow of liquid from veins and improves circulation. Horse chestnut extract reduces capillary permeability and blood pressure in veins. Due to their lymph draining properties, lavender and cypress essential oils boost microcirculation and help diminish external manifestations of the chronic venous insufficiency; whereas menthol produces a mild cooling action and also possesses anti-inflammatory properties.

VenoStrong gel deals with all manifestations of the chronic venous insufficiency and prevents serious complications it is fraught with.

Target audience to use VenoStrong gel:

  • Those who suffer from “bulging” and heaviness in legs;
  • Those who have noticed changes in venous pattern or emerging vascular spiders;
  • Those who feel discomfort in calf muscles and experience night convulsions;
  • Those, bearing prolonged static overloads (have to stand or sit for a long time at one place);
  • Those who wear high-heeled shoes;
  • People, predetermined to the cardiovascular diseases;
  • Pregnant women that are half through in their reckoning;
  • All women, as hormonal swings provoke premature venous insufficiency;
  • People over 30 years old;
  • Those who don’t do enough sports;
  • Overweight people;
  • Those who smoke or have recently given up smoking.

With VenoStrong gel you will forget about chronic venous insufficiency once and for all and regain light and gracious walk!

Preventive Measures

Do you want to avoid unpleasant manifestations of the chronic venous insufficiency? There are several simple and pleasant means of preventive treatment.

First of all, focus on having a balanced diet and presence of the following vitamins in your daily food schedule:

Vitamin E—enhances compliance of veins, is contained in sprouted rye and wheat grains, soya, peas, kidney beans, lentils, green onion, liver, corn, olive and soy oil.

Vitamin C—strengthens veins. Rosehip, paprika, sea buckthorn, blackberry, green head cabbage, tomatoes, strawberry, gooseberry, parsley, dill, citrus fruits and potatoes are rich sources of the vitamin C.

Vitamin Р (rutin)—strengthens vascular walls and valves. It is abundantly contained in green tea, wild rose, lemon, orange, grapefruit, rowanberry and blackberry.

Copper contributes to the synthesis of elastin, a protein that prevents vascular walls from “shredding” under the pressure of blood and formation of varicose knots. These types of food are rich sources of copper: seafood (oyster, mussels, shrimp, crab, lobster, octopus, calamary, etc.), as well as mutton kidneys and beef liver.

Apart from that, sour sorts of cherry, black sweet cherry and garlic are rich in flavonoids, and actively dissolve blood clots inside the veins.

Second of all, exercise regularly. The best option, in such case, is swimming or aqua-aerobics. Exercising in a gym, mountain skiing, football, tennis and martial arts are not the best possible choice, as they invoke a huge load on veins.

Also, if your work presupposes sitting or standing most of the time, try shifting the position of legs as often as possible, walk fast, avoid wearing uncomfortable shoes and heels over 5 cm. Lift up your legs for several minutes before going to sleep.

And finally, avoid taking excessively hot baths, saunas, as well as prolonged stays under the sun, as these factors tend to enhance the load on veins.
