About This Herb

Horse Chestnut and its primary active constituent, escin, exert several beneficial affects on the circulatory system. Horse chestnut is a veinotonic (tonifies the veins) and helps reduce fluid accumulation in the tissues. It has been shown to reduce leg circumference and volume in individuals with excessive fluid accumulation in these tissues. Horse Chestnut also helps protect blood vessels from damaging free radicals   Topical use of standardized horse chestnut seed  in balm form supports healthy venous circulation, resulting in improved blood flow in the legs and other body parts.  Horse Chestnut is believed to decrease the permeability by reducing the number and size of small pores of capillary walls. Horse Chestnut's properties can help prevent fat cells pressing towards the surface of the skin giving the appearance of cellulite.

Centuries of Use
Horse chestnut’s botanical properties were first described by Italian medical botanist Mathiole in 1565, and the plant was widely used throughout Europe by the 18th century. In 1896, a French researcher, Artault de Vevey, reported on horse chestnut’s benefits for the health of blood vessels.

Clinical Studies Document Horse Chestnut’s Benefits
Today a growing body of research is confirming horse chestnut’s benefits for circulatory health—turning horse chestnut into one of the top ten best-selling herbs in Europe.

Horse chestnut’s benefits are associated with a variety of constituents, but especially with a group of saponins collectively known as aescin. Horse chestnut is also a valuable source of bioflavonoids, including the subclass of flavonoids known as proanthocyanidins, renowned for their antioxidant activity. When taken internally, research has shown horse chestnut’s constituents to strengthen the capillaries (the minute blood vessels that connect arteries and veins), support normal blood flow, and support the normal exchange of fluids through cell membranes.
