Vein health

Healthy veins are important to your overall health

Veins work to carry blood from throughout the body to the lungs and heart, after which our arteries will take the blood back down through the body – only to be returned again by the veins. A healthy vein can easily manage the return of the blood back up to the heart against gravity. While most vein disease has a strong genetic link, the more time we spend on our feet, the more we increase the likelihood that our veins will have difficulty returning the blood.

Approximately 20 to 30 million people in the United States suffer from venous disorders, most of them women. The most common disorders include varicose veins, venous insufficiency and spider veins.
