The human body is comprised of a series of “highways” that carry blood to and from your heart. Arteries carry blood from your heart while veins return blood to your heart. This circulation provides blood to all of your functioning organs.The walls of the veins are similar to elastic, and small valves within the vein open to allow blood to flow toward the heart. They also close to keep the blood from flowing back into the vein. This pumping effect occurs through muscle contractions in the legs.
