I have been suffering with heavy legs syndrome, which tends to worsen during the summer.
Q. Dear Terry, I have been suffering with heavy legs syndrome, which tends to worsen during the summer. I am 34 years old and work at a job that requires a lot of standing. After a long day at work, it seems I never quite recover, often suffering from restless legs most nights. Do you have any suggestions?” — Anna W., London, England
A. Dear Anna, First consult with your healthcare practitioner to rule out the possibility that an underlying condition is causing your symptoms. If everything checks out, I would then suggest trying the following botanical combination.
I believe you would benefit greatly by adding a combination of red vine leaf extract and butcher’s broom to your daily regimen. Red vine leaf extract contains resveratrol, anthocyanins, as well as a range of other protective polyphenols and has been clinically proven to relieve the pain and swollen legs associated with varicose veins and chronic venous insufficiency (CVI). Butcher’s broom (Ruscus aculeatus) is also extremely well known for treating varicose veins, other symptoms of CVI, and circulatory health in general.
Together, these two powerful botanicals have the ability to strengthen the veins of the legs and can help stop the tired, heavy feeling you are experiencing. I recommend taking 2 capsules of this blend daily. When looking for a formula, make sure to choose one that contains red vine leaf and butcher’s broom that are standardized for their active compounds.
