  • Horse Chestnut is high in the saponin aescin, which supports healthy veins. Aescin works by promoting healthy tone of the walls of the veins, allowing more blood to flow to the lower extremities. Horse Chestnut also supports normal return of blood to the heart. The benefits of horse chestnut for venous health can possibly improve the flow of blood in Chronic Venous Insufficiency (CVI), a disorder characterised by itchiness, varicose veins, swelling, increased leg pigmentation, and ulcers. Some experts compare the action of horse chestnut to the benefits of using compression socks. CVI is common in obesity and deep vein thrombosis.
  • The aescin in Horse Chestnut has anti-inflammatory activities that can reduce pain and swelling in haemorrhoids. It works by repairing the tiny leaks in the blood vessels for improved elasticity and strength. In the United States, horse chestnut is one of the most common ingredients in haemorrhoid remedies. The herb also contains antioxidants that further enhance blood flow to the rectum.
  • Horse Chestnut extract may help reduce fluid retention in edema. Because it prevents leakage of fluid from the blood vessels, this herb prevents more fluid deposits into the tissue spaces that lead to edema. Edema is very common among people who are in standing position for a long time.


Nature’s Way Horse Chestnut is standardised with 20% saponin, a powerful compound that supports elasticity and strength of the veins. In Europe, it has long been used as herbal remedy for leg vein health in Chronic Venous Insufficiency (CVI). It can also be used for other vascular problems like haemorrhoids and edema for its anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties. Veins that are constantly under pressure may fail and cause fluid to leak. Fluid accumulation occurs when a person is standing for a long time or obese, increasing the pressure to the veins, which leads to swelling, deterioration, and varicose veins. Aescin in Horse Chestnut exhibit powerful antioxidant protection for collagen and elastin, the two primary protein components of veins. Through protecting this key venous proteins, Horse Chestnut is able to maintain its strength and elasticity for improved blood supply to the legs and enhanced venous return to the heart.
