Venoval gel For a quick step!

Today, nearly a third of mankind suffers from vein problems. This is primarily due to man's upright posture, to which, in evolutionary terms, the venous system has not yet fully adapted. This means that upright posture increases the amount of blood circulating in the legs. In healthy human bodies the blood returns from the bottom up and from the superficial to the deeper veins, i.e. in the direction opposing the force of gravity. Blood rich in carbon dioxide travels, through the veins, from the cells to the heart and then farther into the lungs, where it is enriched with oxygen. This is ??possible thanks to the venous valves located in the lumen of the main vein. Their task is to direct blood toward the heart and prevent its return downwards, towards the feet. This action is supported by muscles, especially calf muscles, whose tone and contraction compress the veins, thus stimulating blood circulation towards the heart.
