Get rid of those veins!

Traditionally treatment for venous insufficiencies such as :
  • varicose veins
  • spider veins
  • heavy and swollen legs
The active ingredients of Horse Chestnut seeds are triterpene saponines (about thirty) collectively known as aescine or escine. Aescine increases vein wall resistance and reduces permeability (seepage), objectively reducing venous insufficiency symptoms (edema, swelling, etc.). Horse Chestnut seed extract is known for its phlebotonic, antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and vein wall protector effects. It inhibits elastase and hyaluronidase activity. These two enzymes degrade the vein wall and the surrounding tissues (like collagen) therefore increasing venous insufficiency symptoms and progression (like spider veins, varicose veins and hemorrhoids).In vitro, aescine has demonstrated an anti-inflammatory effect.Horse Chestnut seed cannot reverse varicose veins. Its effect is limited to symptom control and a slowing down of the disease progression, translating in an increased quality of life.

The German Commission E acknowledges its benefits in cases of:

  • treatment of complaints found in pathological conditions of the veins of the legs (chronic venous insufficiency)
  • pains and a sensation of heaviness in the legs
  • nocturnal leg cramps
  • pruritus
  • swelling of the legs.
Contraindication: known allergy to Horse Chestnut.
Horse Chestnut seed is not recommended during pregnancy and nursing.

It can theoretically interact with anticoagulant drugs: do not combine Venaforce® with Coumadin or other blood-thinning medications. Do not use if you have impaired heart, kidney and/or liver functions.

The only reported side effect is a mild gastric discomfort that is eliminated when Venaforce® is taken with food.

The most important risk factors of venous insufficiency can be controlled. It is therefore necessary to modify these factors (lose excess weight; improve the diet by eating more fruits, vegetables and whole grains; stop smoking; exercise; etc.) to effectively stop the disease progression.
