Reducing Symptoms of Venous Insufficiency Via Dietary Supplements
Chronic Venous Disease (CVD) is a chronic, progressive disease of the veins that can lead to a variety of health issues such as leg edema (fluid retention), varicose veins, leg ulcers, stasis dermatitis (skin disease leading to ulcers) and hemorrhoids.
Diosmin Glycoside addresses the metabolic changes that occur on the biochemical pathway, triggering the inflammatory processes that can effect the integrity of the vein walls.
The purified diosmin (diosmiplex), a flavonoid that manages the body's microcirulatory system works on the vein walls to avoid inflammatory damage. The inflammation can lead to swelling and leg pain that may affect quality of life for patients.
Benefits may appear in as little as one week, but may not be seen for 4-to-8 weeks, especially in patients who have progressed to venous ulcers.
For chronic hemorrhoids, the recommended initial intake is one tablet three times daily for four days then one tablet twice daily for nine days followed by a maintenance intake of one tablet daily, or as directed by a physician.
For hemorrhoidal flares, the recommended initial intake is one tablet three times daily for four days followed by one tablet twice daily for nine days, or as directed by a physician.
