Are you trying to figure out how to get rid of varicose veins? More than 50% of those over the age of 50 have varicose veins according to Healthline.com.

This is why we are so excited to share how to reduce varicose veins with this home remedy option.
1What Are Varicose Veins and What Causes Varicose Veins?
Probably the biggest risk factor for developing the issue of varicose veins is, of course, genetics. So if they run in the family, there’s a good chance that you will have to deal with them. In our family of five, two of the five of us have to deal with the issue and three don’t. Whether that holds true across most families, I don’t know but thought that I’d share how it is in our family.
Varicose veins usually start to appear in the late 20s. Pregnancy is also a time that can have varicose veins appear as well. During pregnancy there is an increase in the volume of blood in your body, but a decrease in the flow of blood from your legs to your pelvis. This circulatory change is designed to support the growing fetus, but it can produce an unfortunate side effect — enlarged veins in your legs. The condition can become more aggravated if it is not treated properly and on time. Women are more prone to varicose veins, even though men can suffer from it as well.
