Vitamin C isn't the only healthy nutrient hiding in oranges - these two super flavonoids pack just as much punch. Do you suffer from varicose veins? Diosvein could be the solution. Designed specifically to promote better venous flow - especially in the legs - this is the natural solution to inflammation and swelling of the veins.
With up to 60% of British women likely to be affected by varicose veins at some point in their lives, we are all asked the question - do we really have to live with this daily blight? And what of more serious conditions like deep vein thrombosis? Is there no natural solution to the stress and discomfort caused by chronic venous insufficiency?
Fortunately the answer to this problem lies in a familiar source. Oranges. Perhaps the orange's greatest secret is that it's not just a great source of Vitamin C, rather it holds a treasure trove of other nutritive bounty that a lot of us have never really bothered to explore.
It turn out that Diosmin and Hesperidin are both rich bioflavonoids that are commonly found in the flesh and the rind of citrus fruits like oranges. Hesperidin is actually the predominant citrus flavonoid in sweet oranges and contributes not just to their colouration but their aroma and flavour too.
Diosmin - also a bioflavonoid (antioxidant) was first extracted from Knotted figwort in 1925, it has been used in therapeutic practice for over forty years now. It is especially useful in the improvement of venous tone and increased lymphatic drainage.
Predominantly found in the pulp and rinds of citrus fruit, you might wonder what you have to do (outside of eating a lot of fruit) to get your required dose of either Diosmin or Hesperidin. Often referred to as vitamin P (even though it isn't technically a vitamin!), these two represent a major boost for anyone who has ever suffered from chronic venous insufficiency.
Swanson Ultra Diosvein Diosmin/Hesperidin is a patented supplement which has been employed successfully as a popular anti-inflammatory and vascular protecting agent for over thirty years now. It is recommended by Doctors around Europe as a superior alternative to either Butcher's Broom or Horse Chestnut.
When we suffer from abnormally high blood pressure in the veins it can lead to leakage into the surrounding tissues. That leakage is the overloading of the lymphatic system and it results in tissue swelling (edema) and can prove dangerous.
Swanson Ultra Diosvein Diosmin/Hesperidin works by inhibiting the inflammatory response and reducing fluid leakage from the veins into the surrounding tissues. These powerful bioflavonoids also help to stimulate lymphatic function and even returns the tissue fluid back into the bloodstream.
