Horse Chestnut Extract is a natural venotonic supplement based on horse chestnut. Thanks to its exceptional richness in escine (normalization at 20% against 3 to 6% on average), it contributes to improved blood circulation and helps reduce the circumference of the legs.
Horse chestnut extract is for anyone who suffers, either regularly or occasionally, from the following symptoms:
It is estimated that 25% of women, and around 10-15% of men are regularly affected by at least one of these symptoms.
The horse chestnut tree which bears the fruit originated in the Balkans (especially in Bulgaria and Albania) is now found throughout Europe.
Traditionally, the whole seed was used (and sometimes even the leaves and bark), but since it was discovered that it contained an anticoagulant called aesculin, producers of natural extracts are required to remove this molecule.
However, Horse Chestnut Extract's content of the active substance aescin has been increased as it is responsible for the supplement's beneficial effects on circulation. Our supplement also contains other active compounds responsible for its synergistic effect:
Horse chestnuts are often confused with chestnuts because they are morphologically very similar.
Venous insufficiency is characterized by changes to the vein wall (leading to the development of varicose veins), hormonal fluctuations (resulting in increased elasticity of the vein wall), and dysfunctional valves.
It manifests in poor blood flow in the veins. It is mainly the legs that are affected – they become heavy, painful, and swollen as blood accumulates. It eventually leads to the permanent formation of unsightly varicosities: damaged veins that are blueish, twisted, and prominent.
The horse chestnut extract supplement has several health benefits relating to the veins, according to a variety of sources. Studies have shown that aescin has anti-inflammatory properties that provide an added layer of protection for the cells lining the veins. These same studies have indicated that aescin within horse chestnut seed extract could further improve vein tone and allow for more powerful contractions.
Chronic venous insufficiency occurs when the valves within the veins fail to work correctly, meaning the veins are unable to transport blood as effectively. Using horse chestnut for circulation could improve the tone of the veins, thus enabling them to better pump blood back into the heart.
These horse chestnut capsules benefits were supported in a 2015 review article that revealed it is both a safe and tolerable treatment option for this condition. In terms of circulatory issues, horse chestnut extract is among the recommended supplements for poor leg circulation.
Along with being one of the most highly effective blood circulation supplements, some evidence has shown that a horse chestnut supplements may be effective at addressing hemorrhoids for the same reasons as why horse chestnut leg vein treatments work.
However, more research is necessary to find out exactly how effective our horse chestnut extract supplement is for treating hemorrhoids.
The National Center for Complementary and Integrative Health (NICCH) has reported that research into using horse chestnut capsules to treat male infertility caused by varicocele is ongoing. This relatively common condition is caused by inflamed veins within the scrotum.
Further research could mean that horse chestnut capsules become an effective treatment for debilitating male infertility conditions.
Deciding to buy horse chestnut extract offers several potential health benefits. Other benefits of the horse chestnut supplement are also being studied. Some of the other conditions it could treat, as well as other beneficial characteristics, include:
Evaluating the side effects of horse chestnut and comparing them with horse chestnut extract benefits indicate that this could be one of the best supplements for horse chestnut leg veins treatment, as well as for general health.
The aescin it contains maintains the permeability and tone of the vein wall (venotonic effect) (2), which helps blood return to the heart, particularly in the superficial capillary vessels (3).
These effects are due to three distinct mechanisms:
A number of studies have shown additional effects for aescin:
A very large number of trials have been conducted on horse chestnut in people with venous insufficiency. These trials have:
Horse chestnuts are sometimes described as poisonous. This is because of a toxin called aesculoside which has been carefully removed from the supplement Horse Chestnut Extract.
Apart from this, the only other change is the increase in aescin, a thoroughly well-tolerated molecule.
If you suffer from circulation problems, particularly in the legs, it is important to be aware of risk factors to avoid and positive steps to take to boost the action of venotonics:
Factors to avoid:
