Discover all the Horse chestnut benefits. Used in herbal medicine to help relieve venous insufficiency such as hemorrhoids.
The symptoms of venous insufficiency may be benign, like heavy and tired legs, but may also be much more serious, like varicose veins, painful hemorrhoids and even phlebitis. Aside from surgery (that eliminates the diseased veins but does not stop the progression of varicose veins), there are few treatments for venous insufficiency.
Support stockings are effective but so uncomfortable that very few people wear them.
Horse Chestnut seed extract is used for venous insufficiency problems (including phlebitis) and fragile capillaries.
