Andrew Lessman’s CIRCULATION and VEIN SUPPORT is a blend of potent, natural compounds to support the challenged circulation in our legs. This unique formula is designed to combat the natural swelling and enlargement in the veins and tissues of our legs that occur with aging and daily activities. The blood vessels in our legs are perhaps the most challenged in our body, since they must battle gravity to transport blood from our furthest extremities back to the heart. It is this difficult journey that causes the enlargement, swelling and heaviness of the tissues and veins of our feet, ankles and calves. The normal aging process adds to this uncomfortable burden, as does prolonged standing or sitting, as well as stress. overweight and high temperatures. Our primary ingredient, Diosmin has been clinically shown to offer extensive benefits to the delicate veins and capillaries of the legs. It has been used in Europe for over 50 years and its benefits established by decades of extensive clinical research. We also add Butcher’s Broom - a traditional plant-based ingredient, which has been clinically studied in Europe where it is used to support tired, heavy legs and leg vein health. We also add high levels of OPCs from standardized extracts of Pine Bark and Grape Seed. OPCs are unique compounds that target leg circulation. In short, aging and our modern lifestyle challenge the circulation in our legs and this unique formula provides the natural relief these over-worked tissues deserve.

My legs hurt so bad after a day at work (standing), I had trouble driving home because of the pain. I could hardly get out of the car to get into the house, and once inside I plopped down and couldn't even get back up. Sleep was impossible. I thought I was going to have to give up my job. Then I found Circulation and Vein....leg pain is virtually gone...on an extra-long day I take 3, but most days 2 work great. I even walk after work now....THANK YOU Andrew you saved my job and my sanity.
Fantastic Product!, Sylvia CA

I have a cyst behind my left knee and due to excessive walking/standing the entire month it became the size of a golf ball. I had pain and could not stand up, taken to ER, given pain med's and came home to elevate/heat/ice treatments for a couple of weeks. During that time I started to have much discomfort on my calf (horrible, achy, bloated, fuzzy kind of feeling)...I was dragging my leg with a lot of discomfort. Ordered these C&VS and took 2 as soon as they arrived (early afternoon) and as weird as it may sound the calf felt better immediately, not totally, but better. So in the night I decided to take 2 more in the morning I woke up with minimal discomfort. In a matter of exactly 3 days, what I had been experiencing went away! and I do mean completely! This is not in my head, they worked! Andrew can't make medical claims but we, his customers can...so if you have a problem like what I described, take these...wonderful! oh! also, great for ankle swelling from having arthritis, boy! that went down too. Great Job Andrew. Thank U So Much!!! :)
Wouldn't be without it :), Penny WI

Ladies and Guys - I have been religiously taking this product for about five years and wouldn't be without it. I smoke, yes, I know (I'm working on that) anyway....for being almost 52 years of age, my legs look pretty darn great. The small spider veins have almost dissappeared - I no longer expereince ANY pain in my legs - none, zip, nothing. This product ROCKS - actually Andrew Lessman, ROCKS!
Wonderful product, Beth WV

I have been taking Circulation & Vein Support for 10+ years. I have had repeated phlebitis for 30+ years with vein removal, aching legs. I started this after seeing reviews and it is wonderful, a product I will never be able to do without. No more problems since taking this product. Legs feel great and I am past 60.

I ordered a small bottle for my uncle just to try because he has been suffering with arthritis, severe leg pain and unable to walk well. He noticed an extremely positive difference after a couple of weeks! He called me and said he was out it, and really needed a refill. I am ordering a second bottle now. Thanks Andrew
I really saw results
6/14/2012 11:49:30 AM
This supplement is amazing! I take 15 of Andrew's vitamins and have total faith in them. I absolutely wouldn't buy any other brand and I've been researching vitamins since the 1960s. Usually, you don't literally see dramatic results from vitamins - you just know they work - you're healthier, you feel better... but this one is different. Within a month or so, I began noticing my ankles were no longer swelling up. In fact, I had to tighten my shoelaces because my shoes were loser! This supplement really, really works. I'm 74 yrs. old, and my ankles don't swell up at all anymore. Amazing!
No Veins After Hip Revision
4/22/2012 1:20:50 PM
I started taking this supplement about three years ago after my first total hip replacement. After working as a professional chef and competing as a serious athlete for twenty years my legs looked awful and felt worse. After my first surgery my legs became even more "map" ridden. The varicose veins even stuck out on my thigh by my incision, and the heaviness had increased. I felt like I needed a deep stretch, but I had to be careful of my movements as to not dislocate my hip so I suffered. I was told by my surgeon I had to be patient and let all of those severed veins knit back together, basically to suck it up. I found out about this supplement and went for it. I just added it to my other Andrew Lessman regime. After taking this supplement I noticed immediately my achiness was starting to dwindle. After a while my veins just "melted away". So after my revision in 2012 I started taking this again not long after coming home from the hospital. My post-surgical eruptions are all but gone. Thanks Andrew for giving me great legs again!
1/17/2012 8:48:36 PM
I never get swelling in my ankles or feet so I didn't think I needed this product. But I had been feeling that my legs started to ache or start feeling heavy if I was out and about for more than 3 hours. I'm in my 50s now so I thought I was just starting to feel some aging or that I was just that out of shape. I was also feeling weakness when I would squat and try to stand. That really makes you feel like you're getting old. Then I watched Andrew on HSN and heard him mention tired legs. Really? There's such a thing as tired legs? So I gave this product a try. WOW! In just a little over a week I feel so much better. In the last few days I intentionally planned more time out and about to see if this improvement was just in my mind. No discomfort at all after 8 hrs. running around town. This product will now be a regular in our cabinet of Andrew's supplements. Thank you Andrew!!!!!
12/6/2011 7:41:04 AM
I used to wake up in the morning with achy legs like I walked a marathon ..well since I been taking Circulation & Vein Support all that has stopped. I almost jump out of bed with no problem, I walk miles every day without a problem the next day, my husband also takes them due to anxiety feeling in his legs at night. This is a great product we notice the difference when we forget to take it. Great stuff!
9/8/2011 8:27:17 PM
I am curious...I have been taking this for a month and haven't noticed a difference at all. I take 3 a day, and reading the reviews, I really thought it was an answer to my prayers! If anyone reads this and it's taken a long time to see results, let me know. Otherwise I will discontinue taking. I have taken other supplements of Andrews for some time now and have been completely satisfied, but this one doesn't seem to be effective for me...maybe I need to take a while longer for it to kick in. I have to give it a least one star, but to be fair, if it does take awhile to work and it does, then I will adjust my rating.
8/30/2011 8:42:06 AM
yes start to take this few days ago i have bad circulation on my legs was having bad pain cant get up in the morning so much pain now i feel so good not havent pain feel the different the first day i taken them i did buy this on hsn and i was looking around the internet to find this more expensive am glad find this website i will get this few dollar less because i wan to keep buy them i do not make so much money so i have to get more for less because the really work and am excite to try other products the have good reviews i will never go with out this vein circulation because i work on my feet all day and this really help with pain and keep me with pain thak you for this product you rock
Love this Supplement!
7/12/2011 9:07:29 AM
It has made such a difference in the way my legs and feet feel. The true test to see if it is working is to stop taking it. Did I feel the difference? YES! It is definitely a feel the difference product. I highly reccomend it. One of my favorites. Thank You.
No Knee pains
5/18/2011 1:41:31 PM
I suffer from Arthritis and for the last 20 years I could not find a product that could do what Circulation & Vein Support has done for me. No more knee pains! Thank you. Carlos Hernandez
5/18/2011 2:12:00 AM
I will never be without this for the rest of my life. It is as important as any of the pharmaceuticals I am required to take. Within 20 minutes after taking, my ankle swelling is minimized. My legs feel healthier and more comfortable. Great product Andrew. Thank you so much. God Bless you. Judy L.
Powerful and active foot-legs................
5/16/2011 7:23:50 PM
It is truly amazing to know and understand to have powerful and active legs. I have wonderful time grocery shopping for fresh fruits and vegetables and long-hours of window shopping and shopping top purchase essential necessities with sound budgeting. Imagined in my work, our legs are assets for walking movement activity. Of course, I have time to sit-down for sound foot-legs rest. Circulation and Vein Support for Healthy foot-legs ProCaps nature vitamins is truly effective and beneficial together with my ProCaps multivitamins.
Is this stuff for real??!!!!
3/30/2011 3:48:38 AM
I have had an 8 year battle with varicose veins on my left leg that began with my second pregnancy. I have had 2 surgeries (a vein ligation 5yrs ago and an in office laser procedure 2010). Despite these treatments and several rounds of sclerotherapy I continue to have a painful ugly swollen varicose vein on my inner left thigh. I am only 39 (I say only) and have become very self-conscious in shorts, skirts and dresses. Looking for anything else that might help, I came across this product. After only a few days of taking these supplements, I have noticed a DRAMATIC improvement. The offensive area is 3x3cm purple swelling just above my knee that stays hot and tender to the touch. The area is now significantly improved in every aspect...its smaller, less purple, not as swollen and much less warm and tender. I don't write reviews generally but I am so impressed with the results thus far I felt I had to let others know how beneficial this product is. Bring on summer....momma can show her legs again!!!
It's a ten, actually...
3/4/2011 9:18:32 AM
10 out of 5 that is! What a remarkable product! At first, I was a bit hesitant about ordering this product because of the hesperidin, so I consulted my sister-in-law who is a pharmacist. She actually told me that she was seeking a vitamin containing hesperidin for her varicose veins. That was enough to convince me of the safety of this product because my sis-in-law is very well read on both prescription drugs AND supplements. My legs feel and LOOK much healthier since I started taking this product. They don't feel tired at the end of the day like they used to. I recently had to fly and as most people know, being on an airplane for an extended period of time does a number on the legs. My legs were definitely traumatized from the long flight, but they bounced back into shape within 24 hours. Thanks again Andrew for another wonderful product!
1/9/2011 5:44:02 PM
I have slight varicose veins on my legs and feet, Drs told me to wear compression stockings, elevate my legs. The aches and pains I was having was becoming unbearable. I am in my 40's. And wearing compression stockings was not something I wanted to do, especially in the summer. I also have an ankle injury which at times can cause lots of pain. I saw this product on TV one day and thought I would try it. Wow! After about three months of using it my legs and feet felt no more aches. The veins in my legs were actually getting better. I ran out of the product and am noticing the aches again. I can not live without this product. Thank You Andrew Lessman =) It's a wonderful, natural product that works!!!
Love this product!
12/31/2010 4:29:31 PM
I have been using this product for several years. It is one of several of Andrew's products that I cannot be without. I can tell a difference in how tired my legs get if I run out of it. Do try it. After taking it for a while, you will not want to be without it either.
12/18/2010 1:44:46 PM
I have put on a few pounds over the years and noticed when I got up after sitting for some time there was heaviness and some numbness in my legs but after receiving this product and taking it every day I have not experienced this at all. I am very pleased with the product and hope others give it a try also.
HOLY SMOKES! WORKS CRAZY GOOD!
10/12/2010 3:15:16 PM
As a medical transcriber, I sit for long hours on end. I had developed a pain on the outside of my right knee that radiated down the front of my lower leg, to the top of the foot. It got to the point that I was not comfortable in any position, including sitting, standing, or even lying down. Driving a car was excruciating and the pain was severely cutting into my ability to work. I was unable to sleep due to the stabbing, burning pain. I had seen this presentation on television and had been meaning to try it. After my recent pain exacerbation, I ordered the bottle as a last ditch effort before forking out crazy money to a doctor. The capsules arrived SO QUICKLY, I couldn't believe it. I took two that day and two the next morning. By that second evening, the pain had already substantially backed off. By day three it was gone. It works crazy good for me, and I intend to buy the biggest bottle of this I can get. I will not be without it from now on!! The best part is that the capsules contain all natural ingredients, while any doctor I went to would surely have been me pain medications I don't want or need. Thanks so much for the service you provide to the world, Andrew. Cheers, Michelle
SEEING IS BELIEVING !!!
9/29/2010 9:10:08 AM
RECENTLY, I WAS DIAGNOSED WITH SEVERE EDEMA. REST, ELEVATE, APPLY ICE, TAKE ADVIL, AND WEAR 15 TO 20 COMPRESSION STOCKINGS; WHICH HURT BY THE AFTERNOON. I DID NOT WANT TO TAKE FLUID EXTRACT PILLS; SO I DID MY OWN RESEARCH AND READ THE REVIEWS. I INCREASED FROM 2 A DAY TO 6 A DAY AND WHAT A HUGE DIFFERENCE IN MY LEGS. NO MORE RED BLOOD CELLS POPPING OUT AND NO MORE SWELLING IN MY ANKLES. I DOWNGRADED TO 8 TO 15 COMPRESSION STOCKINGS AND CAN STAND ON MY FEET LONGER WITHOUT SO MUCH PAIN. I GOT MY LIFE BACK. THANK YOU, ANDREW, FOR "MY MIRACLE" IN A BOTTLE. GOD BLESS YOU.
Can't be without
8/14/2010 2:11:41 PM
This product is the best, before trying this I had episodes of feeling a heaviness in my legs and/or swelling of ankles and calves which hurt so much I had to put my feet up. About a week ago I ran out of these supplements and bought something at the drug store, it did not work. I am back to order Andrew's supplements and am now on auto delivery. I do not want to be without this supplement again. Thank you so much Dorene, Virginia
The Best supplement that really makes a difference
6/13/2010 7:59:28 PM
Andrew, Circa works just like it suppose to. I take this after my workout and improves the leg circulation a great deal. :):):)

Over time my feet & legs became very sore; especially the round bone on the left foot & big toe area. Walking for any period of time became no fun. Because my symptoms were different than common heaviness & swelling- it took a while to catch on. But the word circulation kept coming to mind so I ordered. Within the 1st couple days there was relief. It's been about 3wks now & progressively keeps getting better. I thank God first then you ProCaps/ Andrew for rescuing me from having to go another route. Plan to change Auto Ship to larger size. I am an otherwise healthy 50 yr. old & currently use Complete Multi, CQ 10, Hair Skin Nails, Glucosamine & Night Time. No regrets on any purchases.
This is a must have!

I am not one for writing reviews but after taking Circulation & Vein Support for just 3 days, I started to notice a difference with my constant leg [discomfort].... [A]fter about three weeks of using Circulation & Vein Support, the level of [discomfort] had been reduced to a point that I can now do things I forgot I once did. I can now do things I forgot I once did.... The swelling in my legs has been reduced to a point that I can see the calves on my legs again. (Weight 176) This product for me is nothing short of amazing. I really can’t imagine doing without it. If they ever stop making it, I’m [in] trouble. I could continue, but I think you get the point.
Thank YOU ANDREW LESSMAN FOR A FABULOUS PRODUCT !!
9/23/2009 2:04:07 PM
About a year ago I was diagnosed with type ll Diabetes. I started to experience that restless leg syndrome, a little at first and then it got so bad I couldn't sleep at night. I was taking anything I could find around the house such as Tylenol, Excedrin and Advil every single night to get rid of the pain so I could get some sleep. Then I started to notice that my legs ached all day long ... even if I was just sitting down watching TV. I started to worry that this was going to be something I was going to have to live with the rest of my life and the thought of that was very depressing. About 2 months ago my doctor prescribed a cholesterol drug for me and I was telling my girlfriend that now I have to take prescription drugs which neither one of us is keen on ... I actually would prefer to skip it all together than take a bunch of chemicals. She suggested I get Andrew Lessman’s vitamins for that, which is something she took and it worked in lowering her cholesterol totally natural vitamins... not chemicals ... so, I got online and looked him up ...THANK GOD I DID!!! THIS PRODUCT IS A GOD SEND!!! I took one pill and noticed a difference right away ... the aching subsided and I've been taking them ever since ... and sometimes I can even go a few days without taking them and the pain does not come back the minute I don’t take one... I am sooooo pleased with this product!!! I am re-ordering and plan to never be without this product -- I have also purchased many others of Andrew's products because I feel they truly can be trusted to do what they say.
8/15/2009 8:56:34 AM
I left a review for this product about a month ago...based upon my experience when I stopped taking it and in anticipation of resuming. Well, I can definitively say that this supplement is a difference-maker! I haven't experienced the pronounced swelling in my lower legs, ankles, and feet since I've started taking this again (and when I say "pronounced", I mean swelling to the degree where skin over my calves actually felt hard because of the fluid retention - no kidding). I will never let myself run out of this product again - thanks so much, Andrew! I can't say enough good things about Circa!
7/12/2009 9:03:53 AM
I took this product (Circulation & Vein Support from HSN - same thing as Circa) for a few years and honestly, didn't really notice anything. But, when I started taking this product, I didn't have heaviness or aching in my legs...and my ankles and feet really didn't swell on any consistent basis (just occasionally - maybe once a month...and quite honestly, I attributed it to hormones and water retention). I took the product simply to help ward off potential issues down the road because I have a strong family history of circulatory problems. Well, I ran out of Circa-Circulation & Vein Support a few months ago and didn't replace it. Over the last couple months, I've been having issues with my legs - heaviness at the end of the day...and significant swelling (so much so that the skin over my calves felt "hard" because they were so swollen). Hot and humid days just exacerbated the issue. I don't know why I didn't make the connection sooner - that I had stopped taking this product a few months ago...and maybe it took up until recently before the levels of applicable nutrients in my body lowered to a level where it's now causing problems. Anyway, I reordered last night and anticipate an improvement...as I never had these issues while taking Circa-Circulation & Vein Support. Thanks for the excellent product, Andrew! Your passion truly makes people's lives better!
Will never be without this one!
6/9/2009 2:47:50 PM
Love - Love - Love this! I am a 43 year old woman and was starting to have "puffy" ankles. I started taking this and immediately noticed a big difference in my ankles and how my legs felt. I take 2 every day. I really noticed it working when I recently flew on an airplane, usually I would have really puffy ankles after a flight, no matter how much water I was drinking. Never had any swelling this time! This item is on auto-ship to me! Highly recommend it, and it's not even that expensive - thank-you for this product.
5/29/2009 8:20:32 PM
I bought this product because I was having...heavy and tired legs all the time. I started taking this product because I wanted relief so very badly. This product has [helped with the discomfort], tired and heaviness that I've experienced. I ran out and the...heaviness and tiredness returned. I set up auto-delivery and will not be without this product again. Thanks Andrew for such a wonderful product.
I have to have this product.
5/23/2009 12:15:50 PM
It works for swelling in your fingers as well. My problem was swelling in my fingers and the lower part of my arm whenever I was riding in the car. I had to use Windex to get my rings off at night. I no longer have this problem. It also helped my spider veins. I can hardly see them now.
Almost a miracle !
2/14/2009 12:39:39 PM
I use about 6 of Andrew's products and this one provided me the quickest most noticeable benefits- I have used it for about 2 years now ... and saw results within the first two weeks. It is one that I never run out of - I am diabetic and overweight and ...I no longer feel that "heavy" feeling in my legs. Thank you Andrew !
No more swelling
9/15/2008 5:59:24 AM
My mother bought me a bottle of Circa to try after I mentioned to her that I had been (told that I have) weak veins and capillaries in my legs. I had suffered for over a year with swelling that typically appeared at the end of the day, but over time became increasingly more frequent and bothersome. When I would try to wear sandals all day at work, my ankles were very swollen and hurt. After taking Circa for about 3-4 weeks, and then increasing the dosage from 2 caps to 3 caps per day, the swelling is gone and my legs feel normal again. I can now go all day in sandals or even bare feet with NO swelling! I am going to start ordering Circa on auto-ship, I wouldn't want to be without it. Thank you for a wonderful product!
7/30/2008 7:30:05 AM
As far back as I can remember, my feet and legs would swell if the weather was hot and humid, if I would fly in an airplane, or sit too long. They would feel as if they weighed 100 pounds each. No more!!! I've only been on this product less than a week, it is hot and humid, and I can see my ankles all day long. If you are hesitant to try this product, please do yourself a favor. It amazes me that there is a natural product that works this well. Thank you Andrew!!! I will never be without it.
7/15/2008 8:26:05 AM
I have been taking this product now for almost a year and would not start my day without it. I waitress and have spider veins all over my legs and with this product, my legs are never ... tired any more ... I just took a chance with a money back no-questions-asked [guarantee], I had nothing to lose, but now I have the freedom and energy to move about.
7/14/2008 4:41:14 PM
I have [clotting and circulatory issues]... I have been taking Circa for the last eight years or more my legs are [now free of issues}. I just flew from PA to Alaska and back with no problems... I can't begin to say how much CIRCA means to me, I love what it does and how it makes my legs feel. Thank you Andrew Lessman.
7/14/2008 3:28:35 PM
I was having a terrible achiness in my legs whenever I would lay down. It was soo bad that it would either prevent me from sleeping or wake me during the night. I decided to search for a product that was made for such a problem. After searching numerous web sites I decided to try Circa. I use it in conjunction with Potassium capsules and I have had wonderful results. I will NOT be without my Circa ever again!! Thanks Andrew for such a fantastic product.
7/14/2008 2:23:04 PM
I have been on this product for about 6 to 7 years now and love it. I have taken 3 a day without fail. ...Thank you very much you added years to my life.
Your legs will love this!
7/14/2008 7:22:09 AM
This product is just wonderful! I have one large varicose vein that is very bothersome. Taking this product has made such a difference and I can tell when I don't take it. Also, I used to get swollen legs when I would fly more than and hour or so, now I can fly across country and arrive with normal size legs. What a blessing! Thanks so much for your products.
No More Swollen Feet and Ankles!
7/14/2008 7:15:57 AM
My job requires that I sit in front of a computer. Before I started taking Circa, my legs, ankles and feet would be swollen by the end of the day. I don't know how it works, but it just does! No more swollen legs, feet or ankles, and absolutely no side effects. Andrew Lessman's products are excellent, and I highly recommend Circa to anyone who suffers from bad circulation in their legs.
5/29/2008 11:29:45 AM
This product is great!I can't believe what a difference it has made with the comfort of my legs.I waitress and have spider veins all over my legs.They always hurt and are very heavy or tired feeling, but not any more.Thank you for a wonderful product.
5/28/2008 9:12:15 AM
I started taking this out of curiosity to see if it would help the chronic itching on my lower legs thinking maybe it was a circulation problem due to long term diabetes (29 years). The itching is gone. I stopped taking it for about a month and sure enough, the itching returned... Thank you Andrew!
