Varicose veins may have a variety of appearances, but generally, they appear swollen, twisted and discoloured, along with pain and discomfort. Our vein health can take a severe to worse condition in several ways. The major causative factors which we have control over that negatively affect our vein health are:
- Sedentary Lifestyle
- Unhealthy Eating habits
The other causative factors that lead to varicose veins problems include genetics, hormones, and age. However,these factors are beyond our control, so we can just hope for the luck when it comes to genetics and hormones, and age does not cause our veins too many problems. But, the things that are within our control, such as leading a sedentary lifestyle and unhealthy eating habits and it is crucial that we should start sooner on getting our eating and physical activity on a healthy track.
Alcohol consumption is another causative factor which we should want to take into consideration that likely exists in our life that is wreaking havoc on our circulatory system.
Though it is not a serious factor that put us at risk for varicose veins but it is certainly on the list of causative factors for varicose veins.
Let’s take a look, how bad is alcohol consumption for our veins?
How Badly Alcohol Affects Our Circulatory System
The whole circulatory system works to make sure that our heart continues to pump blood through our veins and arteries. Veins carry deoxygenated blood to the heart and the veins in our body are a major part of our circulatory system.
We might have read articles and research studies claiming that alcohol can be good for our circulatory system. To a certain extent, this is correct. However, the key is how much and how often we consume it.
If alcohol consumption is more, then our body becomes stressed and any positive results that alcohol provided are now vanished.
How is this possible? Well, the studies show that one glass of alcohol causes our blood vessels to relax, which makes it easier for our body to pump blood through them. This is a great break for our circulatory system.
But, when consumption is more it may increase our heart rate which causes our circulatory system to work harder.
This means our body mechanism is back on duty i.e., double-duty, to bring back to a normal level. Veins are included in that double-duty shift and doing double-duty means more strain on veins, which greatly increase our chances of damaging them.
Veins Condition – During Alcohol Consumption
It cannot be said that alcohol consumption leads directly to varicose veins. However, it can be said that it causes issues for our circulatory system, as discussed. And, at some point it seems inevitable that they will become affected by our drinking habit.
Since drinking does not lead to varicose veins, but, be aware of the possible effects and one must know that the problems will be more severe for those who already have a predisposition to vein issues.
