Varicose, or swollen, veins occur when the veins are overworked and stressed. You can help strengthen the veins by eating flavonoid-rich foods such as berries, cherries and plums (most foods that are richly colored in blues, reds or purples tend to be high in flavonoids). Herbs you can take to help prevent varicose veins are St. John's Wort, bilberry, linden flowers and hawthorn. If you do have varicose veins, you may help treat them by eating rosemary, which can stimulate circulation. Drinking tea infused with St. John's Wort or witch hazel helps reduce inflammation, which can also help manage the pain. Taking butcher's broom in tablet form three times daily could also strengthen veins and reduce inflammation.
