Used in Herbal Medicine to relieve symptoms of discomfort and heaviness associated with minor venous circulatory disorders (chronic venous insufficiencies, varicose veins).
Veins are the blood vessels responsible for carrying blood from the body to the lungs and heart. Under normal conditions, the one-directional valves in these veins fight gravity and push blood up towards the heart. With ageing process and nutritional deficiencies these valves do not function in an optimal way, causing the veins to bulge. The veins then become weakened, enlarged, and twisted.
VEINO’GUARD® is formulated with Horse chestnut and Butcher’s broom extracts contributing to the maintenance of normal venous circulation through their phyto-active nutrients: Aescin and Ruscogenin. These two saponins, help to ensure the maintenance of normal vessels walls, in synergy with Witch hazel.
