WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. For years, millions of women tried everything from heavy leg make up to dark pantyhose to cover up unsightly varicose and spider veins.
Now there's a better way to reduce the appearance of unwanted veins with Garden of Life's Lovely Legs, the only dietary supplement backed by extensive human clinical studies and millions of happy European women.
"The Lovely Legs formulation is used by millions of satisfied women worldwide for one reason - it works," said Garden of Life founder and CEO Jordan Rubin, who added that the 95 percent diosmin formula was previously only available in Europe where it was widely prescribed by physicians for decades.
Lovely Legs is a natural supplement that helps with the occasional bout of swelling, water retention and "heavy leg" sensation caused by standing or over exertion and the embarrassment of visible spider and varicose veins.
The main ingredient diosmin, a bioflavonoid derived from citrus fruit, acts as an antioxidant to neutralize damage to veins caused by oxidative stress. The formula is also vegan, gluten free, and dairy and soy free.
"Lovely Legs is an exciting product in our new Extraordinary Beauty line," said Garden of Life President Brian Ray. "Research shows that vein issues are normal during pregnancy, after weight gain, and even in athletes from years of strenuous exercise.
We're thrilled because we are already seeing a huge interest from customers asking for Lovely Legs."
One New York-based podiatrist and consultant to Garden of Life is so impressed with Lovely Legs that she routinely recommends it to patients in her practice.
Dr. Emily Splichal, aka "Dr. Legs," says tell-tale veins are a big issue with patients because visible veins affect self confidence.
"Women are unhappy with their appearance and can't comfortably wear skirts or shorts when veins are showing," said Splichal. "I'm confident recommending Lovely Legs because clinical studies show that diosmin provides nutritional support to improve vessel strength, improve the health and tone of capillaries, and to reduce visible signs of varicose and spider veins."
