horse chestnut herb for vein health

has anyone used this? I was doing some research and it says that if you use this you need to periodically get your liver tested.....making me think I wonder if it's safe and if I want to use it.

Re: horse chestnut seed extract for veins

My daughter used this for poor circulation and the beginnings of varicoise veins. It is commonly suggested for this. I have never heard it causing any problems.

Re: horse chestnut seed extract for veins

She finally had to have a vein removed. She stopped the horsechestnut for awhile but plans to start again because she continues to have the problem of cold extremities. I think there is something else that you can take with it to increase the effect but cannot now remember what it is, but I think it is black walnut. I'll ask her and let you know or you could do some research.

Best,

Jen

Re: horse chestnut seed extract for veins

Horse chestnut has been well-researched for its role in supporting vein health. It helps support good circulation and vein tonicity. But you should also include other nutrients and herbs that are a beneficial combination. Diosmin, hesperiden, buctherís broom, gotu kola leaf extract along with the antioxidant Vitamin C all help to promote antioxidant strength, strengthen valves, and support healthy circulation. I have used this and it works well for me.
