Loosen your legs and enjoy freedom from vascular problems with this standardized to 22% Horse Chestnut extract. Are the veins on your legs becoming increasingly pronounced? The Horse Chestnut isn't just a conker tree, it's actually a great remedy for chronic venous insufficiency too.
It sounds a little bit crazy but did you realise that conkers can help you with both hemorrhoids and chronic venous insufficiency? While it sounds like the kind of hocus pocus normally reserved for druids (who - incidentally - did also use the conker for medicinal purposes), it is actually founded in quite a lot of scientific research.
Aesculus hippocastanum (to give it its Greek name) is quite often thought of as being one of the more quintessentially British trees for its prominent role in many of our childhoods. The truth is though that it actually calls the Balkan peninsula its original home. This indigenously Albanian tree found its way to British shores around the 17th century and apparently flourished due to its enormous environmental resilience.
All parts of the tree, from the bark to the branch have been used in folk medicine throughout history so it comes as little surprise then that the seed holds so much of the key to its healing power.
We, of course, know those seeds as conkers, wrapped in a spiky husk and good for thwacking against one another in vitriolic childhood duels. The truth is though that they've actually been used for treating all sorts of conditions for centuries.
It's all very well to proudly advocate the efficacy of Swanson Superior Herbs Timed-Release Horse Chestnut but where's the proof? What's the science?
Research has shown that Swanson Superior Herbs Timed-Release Horse Chestnut contains a chemical called aescin. Aescin has several observed properties and medical benefits. First off, extensive research in China has suggested that aescin is actually resistant to systemic redness.
While there are several natural compounds which can suppress redness, Swanson Superior Herbs Timed-Release Horse Chestnut is unique in its ability to do so without suppressing the immune system at the same time.
You might well ask what good this really does. Redness tends to be indicative of swelling and inflammation. The results of which are often conditions like hemorrhoids and chronic venous insufficiency.
As a saponin, aescin is capable of clearing the vascular system by strengthening capillaries. This helps particularly in areas of the body where blood pools occur - the legs!
By using its patented time release system, Swanson Superior Herbs Timed-Release Horse Chestnut can give you your legs back, free from the tyranny of vascular swelling throughout the day and night.
Take one timed-release tablet two to three times per day with a full glass of water. Timed-release gradually over 6-8 hours.
