Spider veins result when tiny tears occur in a capillary artery, due to some sort of trauma (childbirth, car accidents, sports
injuries, or from being clumsy and perhaps bumping into a table). What you actually see is blood that has seeped out of the tears and has followed the
line of the damaged capillary.
To cure spider veins, apply Vitamin K (this vitamin is not normally taken orally except through a physician). Vitamin K causes the blood seepage in the area to clot, like a scab forming on a wound, so the tear can heal. Depending on the severity of your spider veins, skin type and activity levels, you will see results in as little as 8-14 days to 6-8 weeks when used twice daily.
Major food sources for Vitamin K include green leafy vegetables, such as spinach, green cabbage, kale, Swiss chard, turnip greens, broccoli, tomatoes, liver and lean meats and dairy products.
