A number of studies have shown that flavonoids that come from rutin can relieve swelling, aching and pain from varicose veins. Rutin is found in fruits and fruit rinds (especially citrus fruits), buckwheat and asparagus. Additionally, oligomeric proanthocyandin complexes (OPCs) may decrease vein leakage and swelling in the legs. OPCs are bioflavonoids found in grapeseed and pine bark. Similar flavonoids are also found in cranberry, hawthorn, blueberry and other plants. LEARN MORE
