Historical overview

Venous insufficiency is a complex state involving an increase in capillary and vein pressure, an increase in capillary permeability, a blood stasis, an edema, inflammation, etc. Its precise cause is still unknown but many risk factors have been identified: excess weight, hypertension, tobacco, alcohol, lack of physical activity, bad diet, pregnancy, standing or sitting stationary work (nurse, pharmacist, clerk), constipation, etc.

The symptoms of venous insufficiency may be benign, like heavy and tired legs, but may also be much more serious, like varicose veins, painful hemorrhoids and even phlebitis. Aside from surgery (that eliminates the diseased veins but does not stop the progression of varicose veins), there are few treatments for venous insufficiency. Support stockings are effective but so uncomfortable that very few people wear them.

Horse Chestnut seed extract is used for venous insufficiency problems (including phlebitis), fragile capillaries, liver congestion, diarrhea and fever.

Actions and pharmacology

The gel form, adds to Horse Chestnut effects (see Venaforce® tablets or Venaforce® Liquid information sheets) a refreshing local effect, increasing the relief of tired legs. For more effectiveness, combine Venaforce® gel with Venaforce® liquid or tablets.

Scientific studies

Many clinical references confirm the topical application of Horse Chestnut seed extract to relieve poor circulation problems and symptoms. For example, a study conducted on healthy volunteers demonstrated the efficacy of a Horse Chestnut seed gel, standardized to a 2% aescine content, to speed up hematoma (bruise) healing and to relieve pain.(1)

A 1997 clinical study on Venaforce® gel was conducted on 71 patients suffering from chronic venous insufficiency with edema of the lower limbs. After 6 weeks, the diameter of the ankle was significantly reduced by 0.7 cm; symptoms had dropped by 60% according to the scale used (edema, tired and heavy legs, stretching sensation, pain, burning sensation, etc.); and 85% of patients deemed Venaforce® gel effective.(2)
