Venaforce® Horse Chestnut is an extract of freshly harvested horse chestnut seeds; in the form of gastro-resistant herbal tablets. It is a traditional herbal medicinal product for the relief of symptoms associated with chronic venous insufficiency and varicose veins, such as tired, heavy legs, pain, cramps and swelling; exclusively based upon long-standing use as a traditional remedy. Horse chestnut is probably the most popular herb used in the treatment of varicose veins.
The botanical name of the horse chestnut tree is Aesculus hippocastanum and because of this, horse chestnut seed preparations are sometimes also known simply as Aesculus. It is the seeds of the horse chestnut tree which are used medicinally; these are the same seeds gathered each autumn for the game of conkers. The Horse Chestnut seeds have been picked in regions where no artificial pesticides, insecticides or fungicides have been used; only freshly picked horse chestnut seeds are used to make Venaforce®; this ensures that the extract obtained, contains the active ingredients that help with the symptoms of varicose veins.
