Improve your heart health. To understand how compression socks work, it’s important to have a basic understanding of how blood flows through the body. The heart pumps oxygen containing blood to our extremities and working muscles through arteries. Once the cells use the oxygen and other nutrients from the blood, the deoxygenated blood, along with lactic acid and other waste products enter the veins and return to the heart. Once the blood gets back to the heart, it’s oxygenated from the lungs and the process is repeated.
By directing moderate pressure on your legs, compression socks can help to reduce the risk of blood clots. They help fight the effects of gravity and assist the body in venous return (deoxygenated blood flowing back up to the heart). Blood in your veins work against gravity to flow back to the heart. Anything that impedes that flow results in blood pooling in the veins of the lower legs or feet, leading to leg swelling, achiness and leg fatigue. They can also improve the flow of the fluid that bathes the cells (lymph) in the legs. Improving the flow of lymph can help reduce tissue swelling. Compression socks are considered to be highly-effective, and are popular for their non-invasive approach for treating circulatory issues. Link in bio ❤️ or find us on Amazon
