Poor blood flow in the veins of the legs, known as chronic venous insufficiency, is a common health problem, particularly with ageing. It can cause leg pain, swelling, itchiness, varicose veins, nighttime leg cramping and fatigue. Chronic venous insufficiency afflicts approximately 10% -15% of men and 20% - 25% of women.
Extracts of the Horse Chestnut seed have been used in Europe since the 19th century for the treatment of chronic venous insufficiency, varicose veins, and hemorrhoids. Horse Chestnut extract improves vein health by helping to alleviate water retention and to increase the contraction of elastin fibres in the vein walls.
Diosmin and Hesperidin are two natural citrus bioflavonoids. Both have anti-inflammatory and antioxidant activity and support over-all cardiovascular health, in addition to reducing the appearance of varicose veins and spider veins. A deficiency of hesperidin in the diet has been linked with abnormal capillary leakiness as well as pain in the extremities causing aches, weakness and night leg cramps.
Butcher’s Broom helps to repair the walls of blood vessels and capillaries. It also acts as a gentle non-stimulant laxative and diuretic to help take pressure off of the affected areas. The vascular effects of Butcher’s Broom are accompanied with an additional ability to help the body relieve and remove blockages, making it ideal for the management of thrombosis and treating phlebitis.
