Flying on Flavonoids Could Save Your Life

Flavonoids for Strong, Healthy Veins
Traveling on long-haul flights can pose significant health risks, particularly due to the potential for developing deep-vein thrombosis (DVT) and its dangerous complication, pulmonary embolism (PE). Flavonoids, natural plant pigments found in fruits, vegetables, and herbs, can play a crucial role in mitigating these risks by supporting vein health and improving circulation.

The Danger of Pulmonary Embolism
A pulmonary embolism occurs when a blood clot, typically originating in the deep veins of the lower legs, travels to the lungs, causing a blockage in an artery. This can lead to severe respiratory issues and can be fatal if not treated promptly. Long periods of sitting, such as during flights, increase the risk of blood clots forming.

How Flavonoids Help
Flavonoids help maintain healthy veins by improving blood flow and reducing inflammation. They prevent blood clots by making the veins more flexible and enhancing their function. Regular intake of flavonoid-rich foods like berries, citrus fruits, and vegetables can significantly lower the risk of developing DVT and PE during long flights.

Practical Tips for Travelers
To minimize the risk of venous thromboembolism (VTE) during long flights, travelers should:
Move their legs frequently, stretch, and walk around periodically.
Stay hydrated by drinking plenty of water and avoiding alcohol and caffeine.
Wear compression stockings to improve blood flow.
Maintain a diet rich in flavonoids to support overall vein health.
