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
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.Horse Chestnut Cream
Chestnut Cream combines a concentrated extract of horse chestnut seed
and bark extract (20% aescin) with additional renowned astringent
tonifiers and circulatory herbs, such as butcher's broom, witch hazel,
white oak and myrrh. An advanced liposome delivery system is used to
support tonification and deep moisturizing.
Internal use of Full
Spectrum Horse Chestnut or Horse Chestnut Vein Strength, in conjunction
with the external use of Horse Chestnut Cream, provides a dynamic
two-step approach to vein support.
