This morning I received an ad from my menopause relief company Amberen, offering up a vein fortifying double-blind tested new product. The information included the name of the active ingredient, Diosmin-95.
Since I’m not one who takes things advertising at face value, I let my fingers do the walking through Google searches. There is clear evidence that Diosmin 95 has beneficial properties. Unfortunately, there are also reports of negative experiences from using this over-the-counter supplement. In this Q&A session with Ray Sahelian, M.D, users report having heart palpitations, sudden onset headaches and vision issue which resemble a macular degeneration type symptom.
None of these reports come as a surprise. Monkeying around with our vascular system, without consulting a physician skilled in vascular science, we could open the door to a host of serious, if not fatal, effects. After all, every part of our body is vascular. It makes sense that ingesting a product which opens leg veins would also open EVERY other vein in your body. From the spider veins in your legs, all the way to the most fragile veins & arteries of your eyes or brain.
Diosmin-95 also thins the blood. When combined with other treatments or herbs you are taking could thin the blood too much. From bruising, to the other extreme of our blood refusing to clot at all.
The take away? Buyer beware. This is another example of not taking the advertisements copy for granted. Do your own research. Do your due diligence.
