Gravidanza e gambe gonfie

< 1 min

After a pregnancy, women often find they have swollen legs. Why is that? Blame it on hormones such as oestrogen, secreted abundantly during this period, which have a lipogenetic role, that is to say they “attract” fat and fluids in the lower part of the body. To combat them, avoid red meat and pre-cooked dishes (overflowing with salt and fat) and go for diuretic vegetables like asparagus.
