Herbal tea of ​​the month: Light legs goal

To relieve the feeling of heavy legs that comes with the first heat, nature has secrets to share with you. With rising temperatures, summer is a season that particularly affects people with venous insufficiency. So, when the beautiful season arrives, it is important to be particularly vigilant.

In summer, to maintain a stable body temperature, blood circulation increases, thereby promoting dilation of the veins. Except that it is precisely this dilation that causes these feelings of heaviness in the legs that we can feel. The idea is therefore to strengthen our muscle pump by moving enough all year round of course, and especially when the temperatures are warmer. In fact, prolonged and sustained physical activity helps promote blood circulation and strengthen the essential link between muscles and veins. So why not combine business with pleasure by practicing aquagym for example or even aqua bike?

We will probably never repeat it enough too, but in summer, we must also hydrate enough! In any case, the right gestures should be adopted all year round because a healthy lifestyle helps us to fight against these feelings of heavy legs but also helps to preserve our health in many other respects. For example, we know that overweight increases the risk of varicose veins, but is also responsible for many ailments: cardiovascular disease, diabetes, and even certain cancers can be attributed to overweight and obesity.
