Venaforce and Venagel work wonders for the legs, but we would also recommend people to stay active and get some aerobic exercise into their daily schedule to prevent their circulation ending at their knees. Encouragingly for those of us who prefer our walks to be pleasantly stimulating rather than positively pounding, a study at The Cooper Institute for aerobic research in California found that walking three miles per day at a 12-minute mile pace wasn't as effective at burning fat as walking at a 15-minute mile pace.
Gives one more time to enjoy the beauties of Nature while breathing in good fresh air. And remember that water bottle too!
