I’ve love to say I am an active person but in reality I am probably far less active than I should be. Sure, I spend a lot of my time chasing after the girls and keeping them entertained. As soon as they are in bed for the night though I am glued to my office chair for a full 8 hours.
By the time I head to bed my ankles are often swollen and my legs tired and aching. Even worse, I’ve noticed lately that my socks have started to dig into my swollen ankles.
Of course sitting down for hours can lead to many problems from spider veins to deep vein thrombosis and more.
One way to help prevent these types of issues is by wearing compression socks such as ACEL Comfort Graduated Compression Socks. These aren’t the compression socks your granny used to wear. No, not even close.
ACEL Compression Socks have been designed to maximise on comfort and performance. They feature high quality moisture-wocking anti-bacterial materials with a graduated compression to meet the optimal 20-30 mmHg for maximum efficiency and recovery. Graduated compression delivers compression to the leg that is tightest at the ankle. The amount of compression gradually decreases up the leg. This helps to support the vein walls and enhance blood flow.
ACEL compressions socks were developed with activity in mind, and they are wonderful for recovering after intense activity as they can reduce lactic acid build up. They are also great for those like me who have to sit (or stand) for extended periods of time as they help to support circulation and restore tired legs.
I love how comfortable these are on my feet too. Prior to trying out the ACEL graduated compression socks I have been addicted to socks with arch support built in. I love the feeling of the constriction around the arch of my foot, and I am happy that the ACEL graduated compression socks also feature arch support. Not only that though, the soles are cushioned which helps to absorb impact as you move. Talk about comfort!
As far as my tired and swollen legs? No more! My legs feel great when I take off my ACEL compression socks and lay down to sleep and no more swollen ankles! They would be perfect for long flights or even car drives.
ACEL compression socks are available in black, white, green, pink, and blue.
