Horse chestnut is used by many cultures for vein health.  Do clinical studies support this use?  The clinical study 'Horse-chestnut seed extract for chronic venous insufficiency' observes: These data imply that HCSE is superior to placebo and as effective as reference medications in alleviating the objective signs and subjective symptoms of CVI. Thus, HCSE represents a treatment option for CVI that is worth considering.' (http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/9828868.  

In everyday terms, the study found that horse chestnut seed extract has benefit for chronic venous insufficiency (CVI).  That is why horse chestnut is a also included in our Vein No More supplement. 

The University of Maryland Medical Center observes:

Horse chestnut has long been used as a natural treatment for varicose veins.  Taken 1000 mg twice daily according to our patients and science, is both effective and well tolerated.
