Supports healthy heart circulation & healthy veins*
Standardized extract with added Rutin – a powerful antioxidant which has been included as a synergist to increase the effects.
Horse Chestnut (Aesculus hippocastanum) is often prescribed in Europe by both doctors and dermatologists to help with circulatory problems and related side effects caused by prescription medications, such as painful leg swelling and hypertension.
For centuries, horse chestnut seeds, leaves, bark, and flowers were used for a variety of conditions and diseases. Today, horse chestnut seed extract is used primarily as a traditional remedy for chronic venous insufficiency (a condition in which the veins do not efficiently return blood from the legs to the heart). This condition is associated with varicose veins, pain, ankle swelling, feelings of heaviness, itching, and nighttime leg cramping. Because it is often so successful in bringing down swelling in the body, the seed extract has also been used as a traditional remedy to treat hemorrhoids.
