Spider Veins Worse

Answered on August 19, 2014

My spider veins are getting worse on Paleo. I am pretty strict and have been at it for a few months now. Here is my typical diet:

Breakfast: Three poached eggs, half a large sweet potato with coconut oil and a small handful of pecans.

Lunch: pan seared Salmon fillet with kale or asparagus

Dinner: Sausage with copious peppers and onions, or maybe short ribs with cauliflower

Also: probably eat an avocado, a handful of nuts, and a little fruit at different points in the day

Supplements: Vitamin K, Vitamin C, Glucosamine

I've seen benefits from Paleo. My body composition is amazing(I'm a woman with abs.), my hair and eyelashes are growing like crazy, and my skin is softer and smoother, but the spider vein phenomenon is disturbing. It makes me feel that I am stressing my body in some way.

Liver has a decent amount of K2, heart, I don't know... Only a guess about absorption...many supplements aren't well absorbed. K2 is fat soluble, so should be an oil-based gel, not a tablet.

Unfortunately, I really can't stomach liver. I can eat hear, though, if that'll help. Why would I not be absorbing my vitamin K?

I'm thirty years old. I've had one or two for a few years now, but they've gotten worse.

Get some liver in you! I suspect that you may not be absorbing your K supplement. And is it K2 that you are taking?

Also, bone broth/gelatin is great for skin and will probably help with capillary repair, too.
