About this item
Nature's Way's Standardized Horse Chestnut is a scientifically advanced herbal extract standardized to 20% Aescin and supported by the whole Calendula flower. The Aescin in Horse Chestnut is a powerful saponin that has been shown to support healthy circulation, especially in the legs. Aescin promotes healthy tone to the veins of the lower extremities. Horse Chestnut is helpful to treat Chronic Venous Insufficiency (CVI). Chronic venous insufficiency is a condition that is more commonly diagnosed in Europe than in the United States and may include leg swelling, varicose veins, leg pain, itching, and skin ulcers. There is evidence from laboratory, animal, and human research that horse chestnut seed extract (HCSE) may be beneficial to patients with this condition. Studies report significant decreases in leg size, leg pain, itchiness, fatigue, and "tenseness." There is preliminary evidence that HCSE may be as effective as compression stockings.
