Healthy legs are supported by healthy veins that carry blood back up through the correct circulation pathways leading to the heart and out to the rest of the body. Varicose veins are the result of unhealthy or incompetent veins and their valves as they lose their elasticity and the ability to propel blood forward through these one-way valves. Varicose veins come from a variety of factors such as weight gain, pregnancy, genetics and lifestyle habits that promote added stress on the veins. When our veins become unhealthy and overstressed, the blue ropey and uncomfortable bulging of varicose veins becomes prominent, sometimes painful.
To maintain healthy sexy veins, we at Canada Vein Clinics recommend incorporating hot peppers into your diet. Hot peppers have become increasingly popular in the holistic field because of their ability to ignite a series of healing and metabolic properties that can keep your heart healthy, increase your mood, decrease inflammation and promote sexy veins. Many physicians recommend adding some spice to your nutrition plan, cayenne pepper supplements for some, and topical rubbing creams infused with hot peppers. So how do hot peppers promote sexy veins?
Hot peppers heat up your body temperature, and this promotes a metabolic boost to help break down and build up proteins, fat, nutrients and more throughout the day. Adding spice to your dishes consistently may offer an increased boost in your metabolism over a long period of consumption. Often adding hot peppers to your meals will temporarily increase metabolism through a natural ingredient within the pepper known as capsaicin. Capsaicin helps to regulate your internal thermal environment that tends to help fuel the energy required for calorie breakdown.
Increases Circulation and Lowers Blood Pressure
Just as capsaicin helps to increase the body’s temperature slightly, this too increases circulation as blood flows smoothly through relaxed blood vessels and arteries as the blood is pumped from the heart. Healthy athletes have increased flow due to the amount of exercise they do with higher levels of oxygen intake all while maintaining a healthy lower blood pressure. Lowered blood pressure decreases stress levels throughout the body and the optimal environment is established within the body. Adding hot peppers to your diet does wonders for your veins by reducing the intensity of blood flow in the veins, lowering pressure on one-way valves that can succumb to stress and weaken over time.
Happiness is found in hot peppers, so to speak. This same natural component, capsaicin, found in hot peppers helps to promote the production of endorphins throughout the body over time as you ingest spice. Through increased metabolism and circulation throughout the body, these little mood boosters can give you an extra pick-me-up to keep you moving throughout the day. The happier we are, the more active we become and the more active we become, the healthier our veins are.

Natural Anti-Inflammatory and Lowered Pain Sensations
In addition to lowering blood pressure and increasing the metabolism, hot peppers act as a natural anti-inflammatory and are often used in rubbing creams to ease sore muscles and joints. The properties of hot peppers can lower pain sensations in the areas where varicose veins begin as we age, by decreasing the amount of neurotransmitter substance-P (pain signal in the body) produced. These creams can be purchased through whole food stores all over the world and are a supplement for short-term topical pain relief.
The benefits of hot peppers are vast when it comes to natural healing power and can help promote sexy veins.
