Vitamin D and Calcium provide bone strength. Moreover, maintaining a healthy body weight will avoid unnecessary pressure on the veins in your legs.

Alternate long periods of standing or sitting with 10 minutes of stretching. Moving your legs will helps reduce the stress resulting from the accumulation of blood.

Elevate Your Legs
Elevating your legs for 30 minutes a day will also improve the blood flow from the legs back to the heart.
