Treating Varicose Veins

Treating Varicose Veins

Back in November 1999, Dr Julian Whitaker reported on a review of 13 clinical studies which found favorable results treating varicose veins with horse chestnut extract.

Eight of the studies found horse chestnut to be superior to a placebo for decreasing edema, pain, itching and fatigue.

Five of the studies compared it to prescription medications or compression stockings and found it to be equally effective.

These results appear to be caused by the active ingredient in horse chestnut extract, called escin, which enhances the structure, function and tone of veins, which helps to prevent vascular leakage, pain and swelling. To order the extract, you can call 800-722-8008.

So…if you’ve got varicose veins, give horse chestnut extract a whirl.
