The sensation of tired legs is characterized by "heaviness" in the legs. The most frequent symptoms are usually pain, a feeling of heaviness or cramps in the lower limbs, a non-specific pain not very localized and not excessively intense in the legs, tingling, and itching. In some cases, swelling around the ankles and calves can also be observed, generating an increase in the diameter and volume of the lower leg.
One of the main reasons for heavy legs is venous insufficiency, which causes the veins in the legs to have some difficulty in facilitating blood flow and sending blood back from the legs to the heart in an efficient manner. This facilitates the accumulation of liquids or blood in the lower areas of the legs, causing the sensation of heavy legs, or causing swollen legs. It can also be the cause of varicose veins.
There is a higher risk of venous insufficiency in women due to the direct involvement of hormones, but men can also suffer from it. Symptoms increase with age, as the veins lose elasticity and do not contract as easily as we get older.
There are several causes that produce tired legs and swelling, hormonal, sedentary habits, spending a lot of time standing, working, or sitting, long plane rides, high temperatures, poor diet, smoking...

What are ultra deformable niosomes?
Ultra-deformable niosomes are elastic vesicles capable of crossing the stratum corneum and reaching the living cells of the epidermis, which increases the bioavailability of active ingredients.
NIOSOMES DELIVER ACTIVE INGREDIENTS
WHERE THEY SHOULD BE REALLY EFFECTIVE
THROUGH THE STRATUM CORNEUM
The big difference between a conventional ingredient and a niosome active ingredient is that the former remains acting in the most superficial layers of the skin, while the latter penetrates the stratum corneum. In the fluorescent image, we can see the big difference between how a conventional ingredient and a niosome active ingredient act.
What is niosomal troxerutin?
The active ingredient, in this case, troxerutin, is encapsulated in niosomes, which are deformable and penetrate the layers of the stratum corneum until they reach the deepest layers of the skin.
This niosomal troxerutin preparation has been developed to improve the insufficient microcirculation responsible for disorders such as couperose, heavy legs and cellulite.
The niosomal vesicles increase the stability of troxerutin and improve its bioavailability, its penetration into the skin through the stratum corneum.
Thanks to its extraordinary anti-inflammatory, trophic and antioxidant action on the endothelium, it is beneficial to promote elasticity and decrease capillary permeability, favoring a physiological improvement of microcirculation and a reduction of edema formation, the primary cause of heavy legs, cellulite and couperose.
In EFFECTIVENESS TESTING of niosomal Troxerutin on swollen legs. A self-assessment clinical trial was conducted, in which a panel of experts composed of 25 people evaluated its effects on the first symptoms of varicose veins. Applying the 3% compound for 2 months, twice a day, decreased itching and heaviness in the legs, less reddened, dry and thin skin, and less evident capillary dilatation.
