THERE'S JUICY NEWS IF YOU HAVE VARICOSE VEINS, SPIDER VEINS, HEMORRHOIDS, OR DIABETIC NEUROPATHY: CAPSULES OF DIOSVEIN, DERIVED FROM SWEET ORANGE, ARE A NATURAL OPTION FOR HEALTHY LEGS AND BETTER CIRCULATION

The sweet orange, Citurs sinensis, traces its origin to China, India, and Southeast Asia. Around the ninth century, Moors brought the sweet orange to southern Spain. Eventually, the fruit made its way to Florida with Spanish explorers around 1565.

In addition to their numerous health benefits — due in large part to their rich supply of vitamin C — sweet oranges may also help with the treatment of vascular problems, such as varicose and spider veins, hemorrhoids, and diabetic neuropathy. This particular variety of orange (not to be confused with bitter orange, Citrus aurantium), contains a bioflavonoid called diosmin, which has been researched for more than 30 years.

But you don't need to own an orange grove to experience the benefits of sweet orange. Supplements of DiosVein — a proprietary form of diosmin combined with the bioflavonoid hesperidin and other ingredients — are a promising way to address circulation-related conditions.

Science Favors the Sweet Stuff
An estimated 25 percent of women and 10 percent of men complain of varicose veins, which can be linked to obesity, lack of exercise, and sitting or standing for extended periods.

Researchers know that capillary breakage, which can manifest as varicose or spider veins, is characteristic of vitamin C deficiency and that vitamin C maintains capillary health. Bioflavonoids appear to work with vitamin C to increase capillary strength and regulate their permeability. DiosVein capsules are therefore a natural option that may diminish varicose and spider veins by improving circulation.

Hemorrhoids, varicose veins in the rectum, affect an estimated one-half of Americans over 50 and are especially bothersome to pregnant women. Faulty valves (vessels that return blood to the heart) in the venous system are the cause of venous insufficiency. Blood in the veins leaks from the normal flow path, thereby flooding superficial veins under the skin. This causes them to swell and bulge, leading to venous infirmities in the lower extremities.

Research on DiosVein and hemorrhoids has shown that the supplement helps in a range of cases, including acute and chronic symptoms.

In research published in Angiology: The Journal of Vascular Disease, diosmin outperformed a placebo in a double-blind study that tested diosmin's efficacy in the treatment of acute and chronic hemorrhoids.

For pregnant women with hemorrhoids, 500 mg daily of DiosVein has been shown in studies to decrease symptoms without any harmful side effects.

Other clinical investigations have found that DiosVein helps shorten duration of acute attacks of hemorrhoids, as well as reduces pain, swelling, bleeding, and relapse.

The list of uses for DiosVein appears endless. Still more research supports its use in the treatment of other conditions, including diabetic neuropathy, leg ulcers, ankle swelling, leg cramps, and phlebitis (an inflammation of the vein, which is often accompanied by the formation of a clot).

How Much to Take
Health food stores carry a number of supplements containing DiosVein (see examples above). Look for a formula that contains about 450 mg of diosmin and 50 mg of hesperidin per dose Follow label directions for exact dosage, as products tend to vary.
