- prevention of leg vein diseases
Statistically, more than 75% of women experience leg swelling problems during pregnancy, which are most pronounced at about 27 weeks or 7 months. About 35% of women during pregnancy also face the problem of varicose veins.
Leg edema (swelling) and varicose veins are conditions caused by the same cause - increased fluid in the body.This leads to increased pressure on the walls of blood vessels, especially in the veins of the legs, in which blood flows back to the heart against the force of gravity. There is also an increase of uterine pressure in the pelvic and lower blank vein, fluids can also accumulate in the tissues. This complicates the flow of blood in the veins even several times. Along with these factors, the hormone progesterone, which is synthesized during pregnancy, also contributes to the relaxation of blood vessels, which is a particularly favorable factor for the development of varicose veins in the legs. Veins affected by varicose veins can become itchy, causing discomfort and even painful.

We recommend to use special compression stockings for the prevention of venous diseases. Compression stockings compress the vein and narrow its cross section. The vein valves, which do not fully function, close again, thus preventing blood from returning back, so that blood can flow towards the heart without any obstruction. According to experts, preventive compression stockings should be worn by every woman who seeks to maintain beautiful and healthy legs for a long time. Therefore, we offer to buy VENOSAN LEGLINE prophylactic 20 mm Hg / 140 den compression tights for pregnant women, thus avoiding troublesome leg vein problems.

This will protect your feet from swelling, fatigue and ensure an efficient return of blood from your feet to your heart.
