    I am well educated in nutritional therapies and have not been able to stop capillary fragility; I am 62 and in vital health; look much younger than my age; take no medicine of any kind; eat organic/correctly; and yet I am still 'leaking' under the skin with purplish bruises that fade away in a day or three...looking for answers

    I, too, bruise easily and my veins leak. I am not as healthy as you. I don't have a "cure all answer" but putting ice on the spots that are bleeding slows the bleeding and keeps is from spreadin to as large of an area. Also, I use a good skin oil that I purchase from a health store and that seems to help some. Good luck.

    Hi there, as we get older, our blood vessels tends to be weaker. So that accounts to the easy bruising that you have. If you really feel uncomfortable with it, maybe you could talk about it with your GP. :)
