Pumping blood to the legs and around the body requires a strong heart and an efficient circulatory system. Choosing the right foods can maintain good leg vein circulation and keep the heart healthy.
Junk food and saturated fats found in red meat, cheese, butter and milk should not be over-indulged, as this can lead to clogged up arteries and a sluggish system. Opt instead for monosaturated fats, such as olive oil and polyunsaturated fats (also known as essential fatty acids) found only in oily fish, nuts and beans and a range of cooking oils, including safflower, sunflower and walnut.
Eating a balanced diet with plenty of fibre, fresh fruit and vegetables can help your circulatory system stay in good shape. This is because many of these natural foods contain flavonoids, which are known to help blood vessels and the vein circulation stay healthy.
